She felt that her hourglass body shape had nothing to do with a pear shape.
I would be so grateful if you had any advice! Well done you for the massive weight loss! GA jeans are in fact for sizes Uk- 4- 18 and the larger sizes are available in Selfridges too. Which I think is really brilliant to get them stocked there. They do the skinny high rise jeans and also the looser high-rise boyfriend styles too. Another brand that caters for curvy is True Religion and available online or in store in London. I hope that has helped, thanks for your comment and let me know how you get on xx Sam xx.
I have broad shoulders, small bust, definitely have a muffin top and bigger in the hips than the waist. I have the same problem with the gap in the waist at the back to get them to fit in the hips. Thanks for the comment, even though your advertising! Actually i am short, with big thighs,big butt with slight tummy.
Hi Sarvani, thanks for your comment. Now the rule of thumb when it comes to a curvy body shape is to balance the hips with a flare.
Take a look at the PZI Riley Boot-cut in a short leg this brand is brilliant for women with curves and a butt. Also the Kaylee distressed straight leg in short is another good style.
Another good brand for curvy women. Please let me know how you get on! Hi Brooke, Good to hear from you! A wide waistband with double button fastening sounds like it could be a good one for you.

Upload a photo with your jean goals to my Facebook page https: Hopefully soon there will be a way for UK curvaceous women to by the brand. Higher rise never solves the problem for me. The best solution for me is to buy something that fits in the hips and then have a seamstress rip off the waistband, take in the aerodynamic fin at the back, and put the waistband back on.
Doubles the cost of the jeans, but at least I get something that fits. A pear shaped girl. I have much of my weight around my hips and thighs leaving my legs and upper body look quite thin.
Jeans only look good on me if you are looking at my hips and thighs ignoring my legs. Plz plz suggest me a jeans in which I may look good. So If you want to disguse your legs then go for a boot cut or a trouser jeans which will hide the shape of your legs.

I love the color of the jeans that the Kardashian sisters are wearing. Wear can I buy those specific jeans? Hi Gibby, A pear-shape tends to have a smaller bust, a bigger bust is the difference that makes an hourglass. We are all very different shapes, so this is just a guide. I hope that helps… Sx. Gap Curvy works really well. That is very sensible info! However I recently got some very cheap jeans that are mid rise got v lucky.
I noticed the reason they fit great is because they have stretch, but they also hold a firm shape esp around the saddlebags where I need it. Also they are straight legs, but almost look like skinny on me. Also if a skinny is too much like wearing leggings then look for a straight leg or cigarette leg option to still get that streamline silhouette your wishing to achieve. My problem is that most jeans end up giving me back ache as they tend to always fall down so that I subconsciously adjust my posture.

Hi Carrie, pleased you like the post. You are right, well spotted, just changed them around now. I love the jeans 8 of 16 with the hidden support panels and darts on the back pockets.
What is this brand and where can I buy this. I am in Canada but willing to mail order if possible. Hi, pleased you found a jean you like. Excellent post, but my problem is, my waist fits a size 10 but my bottom and thighs fit a size I buy a 12 and it opens at the waist and looks scrunched with a belt.
The size 10 is too tight around bottom and thighs but fits perfect on waist. Hi Dawn, for me to answer your needs properly it would be great if you could send me a photo of yourself so I can tailor my answers specifically for you.

One of the most common complaints among pear-shaped women: If the jeans are roomy enough for their hips and butt, the waist is too big. But a contoured cut that doesn't gape at the waist can make all the difference in the world, especially with body-balancing bootcut leg. Trying to find a new pair of jeans as a woman with curves can be a demoralizing process. While my boyfriend can stroll into any clothing store and find the correct size immediately, I have to grab at LEAST three different pairs to hopefully find a match.
