HOURGLASS & PEAR:
If your a lady with curves follow these simple rules when shopping for white jeans.
- Do go for a higher-rise as this will elongate your body and banish a muffin top instantly. (The styles below both have a rise of 9.5 inches.)
- If you are more heavy on the hips the style for you is a kick flare, that’s slimming on the thigh and then kicks out into a flare at the knee. This will give balance to your widest area your hips and lengthen the leg.
- If you have a slight curve then you can go for a slimmer leg shape such as no 2 below. Roll the hem up to the ankle to lengthen your leg and to give you a cropped option.
