If You Have an Hourglass Figure…
“The curvier you are, the more you need jeans that are cut higher in the back to fit over your seat and keep you covered,” says Blair Newell, vice president of product development for Zafu.com, an online jeans matchmaker. Also, since an hourglass shape is known for a small waist, look for a contoured waistband (you’ll notice a seam that indicates the waistband was cut on a curve and sewn together instead of being one piece of fabric); this will help reduce gaping.
For Every Day: Boot Cut
It’s now safe to sit down or bend over. This contoured cut hugs the waist where most styles would gape open.
