They are a closet staple but even women who love wearing jeans may have trouble finding the right pair that compliments their body type best.
There are so many factors to take under consideration - body type (pear shaped, hour glass, boyish figure), style of jeans (bootcut, skinny, straight, flared), camouflaging a weakness (mid section, lack of curves, lengthen legs) and price point.
Here's some information to keep in mind while jeans shopping. Hopefully it will help you in selecting the perfect pair of jeans!
Buy Jeans According to your Body Type:
Pear Shaped Figure: Pear-shaped girls with curvier hips should steer clear of anything super-tapered and go for a low-rise flare or trouser style. This creates overall balance, which helps keep your hips looking slim and streamlined.

Boot-cut: These jeans flare slightly at the bottom, which is flattering on many women. The slight flare -- not a bell-bottom flare -- balances out large hips and heavy derrières. Boot-cut jeans look great with a wide variety of shoes, from clogs to sandals.

Boyfriend: With slim hips that sit a little higher and with straight legs, boyfriend jeans are like borrowing a pair from your boyfriend's closet. Because of the relaxed fit, boyfriend jeans can be the perfect casual jeans, or you can cuff them to your calf and wear them with heels for a more playful feeling. These pants look especially good on a woman with an athletic figure.
