How To Wear Plus Size Jeans

Updated on January 6, 2010

Plus size jeans are just as available, trendy and fashionable as any other sized denim. A lot of brand names and designers have realised that fashion for plus sized women is woefully under served and just because an individual isn't stick thin, they're no less interested in looking good and following fashion trends as any other woman.

Why should being plus sized rule you out of a shopping spree - and one that results in great clothes and fabulous fits?!

How To Wear Plus Size Jeans

 

How to wear plus size jeans is no different to how you'd wear any other size. No matter how big or small you are, you still have to factor in your shape. So, needing denim in a plus size should pose no more difficulties than it would for most other wearers.

Fashionable plus size jeans have been undergoing a makeover in recent years. Designers have realised (or finally acknowledged) that big girls really are both beautiful and expect to look as hot and sharp as their skinny-minnie counterparts.

And that's a good thing. Gone are the days when plus size apparel was less than fashionable. If anything, larger ladies found themselves purchasing swathes of material that appeared to be sewn together in order to cover their bodies - an outcome that missed its supposed objective of being ... fashionable and flattering.

A curvy body was a challenge, both for the designer and for the wearer. However, recent trends have shown a distinct leap forward when it comes to plus size fashion and as the design houses have begun to pay attention to detail, more and more plus sized ladies are looking hot, chic and on-trend.

Plus Size Designer Jeans

It's debatable whether plus size designer jeans are worth buying, over the cheaper brand names. However, there is still the old adage of 'you get what you pay for' and for many women, a higher price reflects on the quality of the design, fit and feel of the jeans.

Unfortunately, no one ever seems to do a blind test when it comes to plus size denim. But, as with anything, style and fit will always win out over price when it comes to clothing. If you find the best fit and they're over budget, consider how much wear you'll get from them - don't dismiss them out of hand.

Or aim to check out the mid-price range ... True Religion Jeans, Joes Jeans, Not Your Daughters Jeans ... all of which are fast becoming as popular as a lottery win and not to be sniffed at when it comes to style and fit in regard to plus sized jeans.

Jeans for curvy women can and do look good, despite having more 'junk in your trunk'. Being a plus sized women simply means that you're an average-sized modern woman (completely true!) and there's no reason why you can't hit the style stakes running. All you need is a little know-how regarding what to buy and what to leave on the shelf.

A few rigid fashion rules and you'll be strutting your stuff along with the skinny girls - and looking just as hot and sexy:

  • buy dark denim
  • avoid anything that doesn't stretch
  • don't buy overly decorated denim - all they do is draw attention to specific areas of your body and as a lot of styles tend to splash appliqué and other equally eye-catching details on the ass area, don't be surprised when you draw glances to your booty
  • stay away from two-tone type denims - the kind that have a faded lighter color down the middle of the leg. They only serve to make your legs look larger than they actually are
  • unless you're a tall plus sized woman, do not indulge in cropped jeans or ones with huge cuffs - theses shorten the leg and add width
  • other than low-waisters, most styles will look good, providing you buy the correct fit, so be honest with yourself when trying them on
  • make sure the pockets (on the seat area) are small, close together and unfussy. They will slim your booty
  • if one of your problem areas is your thighs/hips, buy bootcut jeans. The flare at the ankle will add balance over all

When looking for a great pair of plus size jeans, take the above into account, add in a dash of honesty and you really will find the right pair that both fits and flatters your shape.

Don't be afraid to experiment or try on a dozen pairs until you find the ones tick all the right boxes. Now all that's left to do is flash those fabulous curves ... look good and feel great!

      Hace 1 mes los compré y me siento que por fin descubrí que no tengo mal cuerpo. Definitivamente los pantalones que venden son para otras personas y no para mi. Estos jeans son preciosos.

      Pocket size and placement is a big thing...the right sized pocket will make your butt look better. A teeny pocket will make you look like..your but ate your pockets!! :)

      Hey froggy, that was my problem too. I looked like a tent LOL. I'm too big on the hips but my waist and my legs are not that proportionate to my hips, I ended up wearing baggy pants. But right now, there are more choices (and thank God for that). :)

      Emi - I used to be just in plus sizes - size 14. The choice was still pretty good but i did find many an item that was big (all round) because many designers assume that 'big' means big everything. My problem was the chest area.

      To get a good fit across my chest meant the rest of the garment would be too big. I usually ended up looking bigger than I actually was!

      Pacal - hey! lol at you finding some good in this ;) And yup ... big girls are beautiful!

      nelle - I'm with you on the age thing. And there are a lot of styles that seem more sticthing than denim. Thankfully designers really are beginning to recognise the revenue they've missed out on by clothing women in hessian sacks down the years ;)

      Hey, I came to the right place (or hub). I'm a plus size woman (here in my country at least) and I have been discovering more fashionable plus size dresses, especially jeans. I used to buy the extra large sizes for the not-so-plus-size dresses (I was in denial, I think). Now I go immediately to the plus-size section and try these plus size dresses on and I can honestly say I'm happy with my choices. :) Thanks for the hub froggy.

      Great tips for women of all sizes - and ages. Golden embellishments on the butt aren't done well by many past the age of 24. I also like the tip on cropped pants and cuffs. I'm almost 5 foot 2 and anything that cuts my leg in two is a bad choice.

      Hey frog, I just found myself reading an article about plus size jeans. :) And it was worth it, lol, 'cause even though I'm not a big girl, I learned a lot!

      And if your tips make big girls even more gorgeous, I hope they pay attention. :)
