Jeans for Black Women
Right now, the rage is for skinny jeans for both men and women. This is all well and good and trends do come and go, however skinny jeans can be difficult to wear if you don’t have the figure to fit and skinny jeans for black women often don’t work at all.
Now, some might say that they don’t work for a lot of people, especially those who don’t fit into that ‘skinny’ category and that is true. It is also true that some black women will fit very nicely into skinny jeans. However, whilst some may argue that it is a stereotype, there is much evidence that points to a larger rear area on black women.
Interestingly, whilst most of the white Western world aspires to a pert posterior, in the Caribbean and African countries, a larger posterior is seen as a positive thing and something to be proud of indeed. And perhaps trends are changing too, Jennifer Lopez was probably one of the first R&B stars who made a show of her proud posterior and many other R&B artists such as Beyonce and Rhianna have not exactly hidden theirs, and why should they?
So, are there any jeans for black women that particularly suit? It can certainly be difficult to find them as stores do tend to aim for the middle ground so if you are extra thin or extra large you will probably struggle. However there are shops which cater for specific markets so the best place to search for jeans for black women is perhaps unsurprisingly in more ethnically mixed areas of your local city.
But what should you look for when buying jeans for black women? Well, the first no no is don’t try to squeeze into tight jeans as that really doesn’t work. Also larger jeans whilst accommodating the rear are unlikely to look good on the rest of you. The secret is to find jeans that will stretch. These usually have a small amount of lycra or spandex in them to allow for expansion of the rear. This means that whilst it will accommodate the larger bottom, they will still look stylish and fit the rest of your lower body perfectly.
Of course, even if you find the jeans for your black bottom that fit, it’s still important to keep that part of your body in good condition and exercise .. remember you’ll want to keep on shakin’ that …… for many years to come.
