Denim doesn’t discriminate when it comes to body type. There are no perfect fitting jeans. But that doesn’t mean you can’t try and find a pair that comes close, even if you have bigger thighs. You can look good in jeans even if your mind is telling you NO. Before you even try these styling ideas, maybe you need to love your body.

Now that you have the right mindset, let’s get shopping! Here are tips for finding a stylish, comfortable, not baggy saggy pair of jeans that highlight your curvaceous shape.
How to Look Good in Jeans with Big Thighs
Are you familiar with muffin top and plumber’s crack? Not good looks and certainly not flattering in any manner. Women with these denim side effects are wearing jeans with too low a rise. That’s where the jeans sit on your middle. Women with voluptuous thighs have two great options. A high rise that comes above your bellybutton (near or on your true waistline) makes your legs appear longer and creates a beautiful hourglass shape. There’s no butt or belly peeking out. Whew. Mid-rise sits right below the belly button and also works to show off your best assets rather than expose too much skin.
This refers to the shape of the denim. A boot cut pair is fitted in the thigh but becomes slightly wider from the knee and down the calf. This look can balance out the size of your thighs. Straight leg jeans have one line from hip to hem, which can make the leg look slimmer and longer. And there’s no reason only super skinny women should wear skinny jeans. You would also look fab in denim’s sophisticated sister, the denim trouser. Simply finding a pair of jeans that is tailored changes the whole denim game for ladies with big thighs. A trouser sounds so grandma but it’s just a flattering pant with a high waist and straight leg–in denim! It’s like an office appropriate version of your favorite comfy jeans. But that doesn’t mean you have to reserve them for work. Pair with a t-shirt and sneakers for the weekend or a flowy blouse plus stilettos for the night out. The clean lines of these pants work for virtually any scenario.
Forget anything faded or whiskered. Dark wash or black denim not only moves easily from day to night but also creates one visual line. It’s an optical illusion. Instead of pulling eye to an area of whiskering (like on the thigh, crotch or knees), a dark, even color slims and elongates the leg. That’s your overall goal. Any solid, fun color is a go–have fun with it!
