Perfect Denim

Perfect Denim
When it comes to wearing denim perfect for your body, it’s a complete hit or miss unless your familiar with the brand.  Due to the fact I’m tall, have thin legs and ankles, healthier thighs butt and hips and smaller waist, finding a pair to accomodate every part of my body is a tall order.  Generally if the jeans fit in the thighs the waist is too big, if the waist is perfect, the butt is horrible, if they fit in the hips…….you get the point.  I wanted to share my top five denim choices that work well with many body types.

Prerequisite:
Nice stretch
No waist gapping
Mid to high rise
Snug without cutting off circulation
Fit true to size
Comfortable
Pass the bend over test

    This is a godsend! You're the first fashion blogger I've encountered with a body shape similar to mine, and it's so nice to hear someone echo my frustrations with jeans shopping. Thus far I've stuck with Gap's "Always skinny" line but the color bleeds, the crotch awkwardly sags, and I always have to go for a cropped look. Thank you for the suggestions, your website/personal style is inspiring!
