07/08/2012 - Find the perfect pair of Jeans in Blanchardstown Centre
Jeans will continue to be popular in the coming seasons. With so many different styles to choose from, it can get quite confusing to pick the right pair for your body type.
Following are a few guidelines for every shape:
Look out for a straight leg trouser with a slightly higher waistband to elongate the length of your legs!

Go for a slight boot-cut or wide leg to balance a bigger hip and thigh. Make sure the jeans are not too tight around the thigh. A medium to high-rise waist flattens the tummy. Larger or higher sitting back pockets will make a large bum appear smaller.
In order to create the slimmest look, choose a slim-leg stretch-denim boot cut. A high rise helps camouflage a few extra pounds in the midsection. Higher sitting back pockets will lift your behind.

Plus size Look for a mid- to high-rise wide-leg in dark denim, preferably with a little stretch (2% spandex/lycra).

Only buy jeans that fit really well; Price and label are less important. Also keep in mind that denim will stretch. If the fit is loose when you buy the jeans, you will notice that it will get even looser with time.
Last, but not least, denim usually shrinks during the first wash. Should you need to get the legs shortened, have it done after washing and drying, or you may end up with jeans that are too short.
