Choosing the Perfect Pair of Jeans

Just about any woman would tell you that finding the perfect pair of jeans is like finding a needle in a haystack. Unfortunately it is just not that easy to find a pair of jeans that are actually going to fit your body the way that you want too. However, with just a few pointers you can easily be choosing the perfect pair of jeans in just a few minutes. The real key is knowing what to look for in your body and then knowing what to look for in a pair of jeans that matches.

The first thing you need to do is keep an open mind. There are many different types of jeans when you consider types, brands, washes, fits, and of course the recommended wash and care. Therefore, you need to be open to trying a few because the perfect pair might be one that you have never tried on before for one reason or another. You also will find it easier to talk to a sales rep if you have an open minded because you will be more receptive to their advice. Remember that you know your body but they know their clothes so it is important you work together to find that perfect pair.

You are going to need to know a few terms as well before you can start shopping for jeans. For instance, it might interest you to find out that the reason your jeans have any shape at all is because of the yoke. The yoke is a dart that pulls the jeans together so that they adequately fit over the body. If a pair of jeans does not have yoke inside of it then it will look more like a baggy trouser which is of course the exact opposite of the look you are probably going for.

Another thing you might be interested to know is that there are two major types of waistbands when it comes to jeans: the single or double waistband. You also might sometimes hear the double waistband called the contoured waistband. The point of this type of waistband is to allow the jeans to have some shape while also fitting tightly around the waist. Keep in mind that you might prefer one style over another in terms of personal preference, but sometimes this is not what will actually look best on your so once again be open to trying different things out.

Finally, jeans also have a front rise which is the area that reaches from the center of the crotch on up towards the waistband. Right now the trend is to add to this waistband and rise so that you end yop with a seven to eight inch rise. On the other hand, you also have a back rise which measures from the center to below the waistband. The rise affects where the jeans are going to sit in your waist and can be an effective tool for holding in your tummy or letting a flat waist shine.
