The Perfect Jean to Suit Your Body Shape

There is a pair of jeans out there for everyone! So whatever shape or size you are there is something that's just right for you...


Petites are best off in a slim fit that won't swamp a small frame. Rather than just choosing the shortest length you can find, look for ranges specifically designed for petites as the all-round fit will be better. Showing a bit more foot and wearing with heels will help elongate legs, so try an ankle-skimming style.


Wide leg, tailored styles are great on curvier figures. They add length to legs, have a slimming effect and accentuate a small waist. Look for styles with a wide waistband that won't dig into your hips, and emphasise your hourglass shape with a V-necked blouse that tapers at the waist.

Pear shape

A classic bootcut in a dark wash is always a good choice if you're pear shaped. Choose jeans that are long enough to wear with heels - a sure-fire way to get longer, slimmer-looking legs. Emphasise your upper body with V-shaped tops that draw the eye to the waist, instead on focusing on your hips and thighs.

Straight up straight down

If you're slim and lacking in the curve department you're the ideal candidate for treggings! A higher-waisted shape is perfect if you're tall to avoid the dreaded whale-tail effect. Go for a faded wash as this gives the illusion of a more rounded shape and pair with a top with exaggerated shoulders - this will help create more of a waist.

If you would like one of our personal stylists to find the perfect jean for you this can be part of a personal shopping day for the season. Call 0845 430 9388 to find out more.

Client Testimonials

I found out that the clothes I was always buying did not create a good image for my shape or age. If only I had invested in a personal stylist years ago!

It really was time to get my wardrobe into shape. My personal stylist knew what worked on me and what didn't. The advice was invaluable and now I have an outfit for every occasion!

The whole experience has changed my perspective about me and my life and my clothes. I feel so much more confident and I can't thank you enough.

She knew exactly what would suit me. I tried on outfits I would never have thought of. It was fantastic to go shopping with a true expert.

Every time I go out I feel brilliant and it's so easy to dress now. I have had so many compliments which has really boosted my self-esteem.

I now know what to wear and when which is so helpful having just had a baby. My body shape has changed but I now know I can still look good. My husband is very happy too!

She's done things to my eyes that remind me of pictures taken 25 years ago!!! I would recommend the make-up masterclass to anyone. The advice is truly fantastic.

Every experience was over and above my expectations and something I will cherish for a very long time. I can't thank the whole team enough - my personal stylist, my make-up artist and my hair stylist were fantastic, and the organisation of the services were flawless.

It's the little changes that make all the difference, and you've raised her self-appreciation and confidence, great work. It's the best Christmas present I have ever bought my wife.
