If you’ve been blessed with wide hips and a small waist, you certainly know about struggle–at least, when it comes to shopping for jeans. For people with this body type, denim tends to be either too small in the hips or too big in the waist. If this sounds like your challenge, try one of the following five styles of jeans.
BDG Girlfriend High-Rise Jeans
This slimmer version of the classic boyfriend jean has a roomier thigh and butt area than most denim, making it perfect for girls who are naturally gifted in that area. The Urban Outfitters brand BDG makes our favorite girlfriend jeans. They’re more feminine–and often more flattering–than the classic boyfriend jean, with a straight leg that’s slightly tapered.
Uniqlo Ultra Stretch Jeans
Uniqlo jeans are perfect for those who want a durable pair of pants without an exorbitant price tag. Their Ultra Stretch series are made of a denim that will easily stretch to fit your wider hips without looking like it’s doing anything special at all.
M.i.h Jeans Lou Cropped Flare
Jeans with big flares are good choices for girls with this body type. They have such an exaggerated shape on the bottom that they balance out what’s on top, helping pull attention from it if that’s your aim. Cropped flares do this especially well. This pair from M.i.h. is especially great because their waist is also smaller than most.
J Brand Maria High-Rise Skinny Jeans
We love the denim that J Brand uses, and it’s particularly awesome for girls who have this type of body. The Maria jeans have the perfect amount of stretch, accommodating any area that needs a little bit of extra room without getting that unattractive strained look. High-rise is our favorite cut, since it falls at the natural waist (which is smaller than the area where traditionally-cute jeans sit).
Rachel Comey Legion Pant
For a more dramatic look, try the Rachel Comey Legion Pant. It has a waist that’s high even when compared to other high-waist pants, which will perfectly accentuate the smallest part of your lower half. The legs, on the other hand, are wider than most flares, meaning they’ll be a great fit for your more substantial hips.
