Finding The Perfect Pair Of Jeans

Dear Sugar
I wear a size 0 in jeans and having a hard time finding jeans that fit my body type. I am 5'0 feet tall and weigh 110. I have full hips, a full butt and a tiny waist and I am having a difficult time fitting into regular jeans. Any recommendations? Jean Queen

Dear Jean Queen
Your problem is more common than you could ever imagine. Here's the solution: find a great fit in the leg area and then take em' in around the waist (even the stars use this trick). Designer jeans are expensive, so if you are spending $130 + on a pair, adding an additional $10 for a hem and another $10 for a waist tuck is a great investment and you'll wind up with a customized pair. I recommend jeans that have a slight percentage of stretch in them. The new skinny jeans are famous for this but I am not a huge fan if you've got full hips and a booty. The girls who are wearing these have more boyish figures (long legs, straight, thin hips). You've got the curves, so the challenge is to find the perfect pair that flatters your apple bottom. Go with a boot cut to keep your body shape balanced. Try 7 For All Mankind (Boy Cut or Rocker Styles), Citzens Of Humanity (the basic Kelly Boot Cut is where it's at) Rock and Republic and my personal favorites that flatter Paige Premium Denim. Work it girl.
