Denim that will boost your confidence (without draining your bank account).
Full Hips and Thighs
J Crew Factory Denim Trouser
A classic trouser looks good on everyone, but works especially well on fuller hips and thighs. The wide-leg cut keeps proportions in balance, while crisp creases visually streamline legs.
To buy: $62.50, factory.jcrew.com.
Levi’s 711 Skinny Jeans
These are designed to comfortably contour—not painfully compress—your midsection. A mid rise that sits just below the navel and a heavyweight, stretchy construction create a smooth silhouette, no Spanx required. Available in 23 colors.
To buy: $40, levi.com.
Ann Taylor Curvy Slim Denim Jeans
A contoured waistband plus a roomier fit through the thigh and back equals a pair of jeans that’s ahead of the curve when it comes to fit. Slightly stretchy to boot, they may just become your favorites.
To buy: $89, anntaylor.com.
Express High Rise Denim Culottes
Stray from the straight and narrow and rock a different kind of denim. Don’t let this new style intimidate you—culottes flatter narrow frames. As for how to wear them? Anything you’d pair with your old skinny jeans will look even cooler with these.
To buy: $70, express.com.
