If you have a curvy body shape like I do with a large chest, small waist, and curvy hips, you might hate jeans shopping. I always hated buying jeans until I found the brands that worked with my curves rather than fight against them.


At one point, I actually had custom jeans made that were a perfect fit, but nearly impossible to get on and off. The zipper was not long enough! It was such a sad day when even a custom fit jean didn’t fit me properly. I was discouraged for a while but found brands and rules that helped me purchase jeans without trying on a thousand in stores (only to make a purchase because of shopping fatigue).

Best Jeans for Hourglass Figure

  • Stretch denim

Stay clear of denim without stretch. Stiff denim is the enemy of curves. Your perfect jeans should have 1 to 2% stretch material. Any more than 2% you start losing integrity and will have a sagging issue after a few hours of wearing the jeans.

  • High Waisted

Higher waisted jeans are ideal for an hourglass shape. Not all high rise jeans are created equal. Mid rise in one brand is a high rise in another. Look at the actual measurement to find your ideal rise.

  • Skinny Jeans

I feel like everything I read about curvy hips says to buy boot cut or bell bottoms. I say skip the balancing act that the bootcut jeans and flare bottoms provide. Instead, choose skinny jeans that are tailored with no bunching.

Here are the best jeans for hourglass figure:
