Week Of Denim Problem Solving: Obliterating Muffin-Top

October 24, 2008 by Rebekah

The dreaded muffin top is one of the most common – and most obvious – wardrobe faux pas, and it seems to plague just about everyone from time to time. Slightly-too-tight jeans and a clingy top and a dash of compromised judgment are all it takes.

But the right jeans or a strategically chosen shapewear item can make all the difference.

Jeans that combat this problem simply have higher rises, sitting closer to your natural waist, which tends to be narrower and less cushy than the hips. For a classic-looking pair with a higher waist, try 7 For All Mankind’s High Waist Bootcut Jean ($165), which has a 9” rise. A fancier option, Rich & Skinny’s Lush jeans ($93, were $187) have a dark wash and a trouser fit, along with an 8” rise.

And if you’re set on wearing jeans that hit at the hip but want a sleeker look, shapewear can work wonders. For this particular problem, SPANX Hide & Sleek Camisole ($44) is perfect if you have a short- to normal-length torso so it’s long enough to tuck in. SPANX High-Waisted Power Panty ($36) is a good choice if you’re looking for leaner thighs, too.
