Finding the Perfect Jeans for Apple-Shaped Body Types

Finding the Perfect Jeans for Apple-Shaped Body Types

As the years go by, many of us find that our waistline becomes less defined, transforming our body into an apple shape. Jenna Fischer on the Office Ladies Pod calls it "the cylinder body shape" - and we're here for it. Whatever term you prefer to reference the lack of a waistline, finding the perfect jeans can be tricky. Jeans often fit well in the legs but can be too tight at the waist when the legs fit comfortably.

Whether you’ve always had an apple-shaped body or developed one over time, dressing comfortably and flatteringly can be challenging. However, there are plenty of styles and fits that can help you look and feel your best.  Your slender legs and chest are your greatest assets, so when choosing outfits, focus on highlighting these areas while drawing attention away from your midsection.

How do you know if you have an apple shaped body?  Here are some key characteristics!

  1. Weight Concentration: You tend to carry most of your weight around your midsection (stomach and waist area) rather than your hips, thighs, or legs.
  2. Waistline: Your waist is less defined and may be almost the same width as your bust and hips.
  3. Bust: You typically have a fuller bust.
  4. Legs: Your legs are often slimmer compared to your upper body.
  5. Shoulders: Your shoulders may be broad and align with the width of your waist.
  6. Proportions: When looking in the mirror, your upper body appears heavier or more prominent than your lower body.


Choosing the Right Jeans

When shopping for jeans, here are some tips to keep in mind:

  1. Mid-Rise Jeans: Opt for mid-rise jeans that sit at or below your belly button. This helps create a smoother line and avoids unnecessary pressure on your midsection.

  2. Fuller Leg Styles: Go for jeans with a fuller leg, such as straight-leg or wide-leg styles. These cuts balance out your proportions and provide a flattering silhouette. Our girlfriend jeans offer a comfortable straight-leg in a light wash.  

  3. Skinny/Slender Jeans: If you prefer skinny or slim-leg jeans, pair them with tunic tops. Tunics are perfect for providing coverage and drawing attention to your legs. Our slim jeans offer the perfect combo of skinny straight leg jeans.
