Twelve styles to flatter your shape―without flattening your wallet—for every day, for dressier occasions, and for the office.
If You Have an Hourglass Figure…
Curvier shapes call for jeans that are cut higher in the back to fit over the rear and keep you covered. A contoured waistband
will help reduce the gaping that can result when you’re trying to fit a smaller waist and wider hips. The waistband will have
a conspicuous seam; this indicates it was cut on a curve and sewn together rather than being one piece of fabric.
