There are some people out there saying that curvy women should either stick to their skinnies or to boyfriend jeans. And we so totally do not agree.
Straight leg jeans will work for the curvier ladies – as long as you keep a couple of things in mind:
Ditch the stretch and go for a heavier denim. Preferably 100% cotton, but if you prefer more stretch, that’s also okay. If you go for more rigid denim, prepare to size up, as normally 100% cotton jeans tend to run smaller than your stretch jeans. A higher rise and a slimmer cut for fuller hips and thighs will result in a better fit. And get the right look when it comes to rigid denim with a high waistband and a narrower cut for fuller hips and thighs.
