Each woman has 7 pairs of jeans in her wardrobe, on average. Today, this garment has become truly universal. If the appropriate pairing is selected, jeans can be worn both in the theater or at a business meeting. However, finding the right model, one that will hide imperfections and emphasize the best parts of the body, is a much more difficult task.
We at The bright side understood what to look out for in fitting rooms to choose jeans that will last for many years.
Don’t rush to put jeans that are a little too tight for you back on the hanger. The thing is that jeans stretch outside, and that is why after a while they will become about half a size larger. The waist and upper bottom will be the first parts that will stretch as they experience the most pressure when worn. At the same time, jeans that are a little too loose in the fitting room will quickly become shapeless and look bad on you.
How to tell jeans that fit your body from those that are too small for you? Sit on a chair in the dressing room – if the jeans you’re trying on are constricting your waist and preventing you from moving and breathing – they’re too small. If they’re just a little tight, congratulations, you’ve found the perfect fit!
Genuine denim has a characteristic intertwining of threads – those famous diagonal stripes. The outside of the jeans should be darker than the inside. The fact is that in denim, only the warp yarns that prevail outside are dyed, so the inside of the denim product is lighter.
3. Zippers, buttons and other elements
Make sure they have no nicks, chips or other defects. The zipper should not come down when closed, otherwise you may get a confusing situation when wearing them.
4. Belt loops
Belt loops are loops that help hold the belt in place. As a rule, jeans have 5 belt loops to allow the belt to provide maximum support. Some brands, like Wrangler, add 2 extra belt loops to their product.
If there are less than 5 belt loops on a pair of jeans, you better not buy them because the belt will not fit well, which will affect the comfort and overall look. Belt loops should be located parallel to each other and sewn in a solid straight line.
5. Pocket size
Back pockets should be proportional to the waist of the hips, otherwise, they may ruin the appearance of the body shape. If you have curvy hips, don’t opt for jeans with small pockets – they will emphasize the curvy bulges. Large pockets are not recommended for thin girls, as they will visually reduce the volume of the buttocks.
6. Distance between pockets
Too space between the back pockets will visually increase the hips. And vice versa – if it is too small, the hips will appear smaller. This technique can be used for visual purposes correction of body shape. In other cases, opt for models whose pockets are neither too close nor too far apart.
The label can be leather or fabric. Embroidered or embossed lettering and symbols are other indicators of good quality jeans. Pay attention to how well the label is sewn and straight. If the seam breaks or isn’t straight, you might be better off looking for another option.
8. Distance between bottom seam and zipper
High-waisted jeans are most often distinguished by a large distance between the bottom seam and the fly. They can visually change the proportions of the body shape and lengthen the lower body. Choose jeans with a short distance between the fly and the bottom seam to avoid an annoying optical illusion.
9. The color of the inside label
The label located inside the jeans must be white. If it’s red, green, or any other color, it means your new jeans will likely lose their color in the wash. In addition, they will quickly fade and change their original shade.
The belt can be curved or straight. A curved waistband sits a little higher in the back than in the front. This design will to bring a tighter and better fit around the waist – this means that the jeans will look and fit perfectly on the body.
