woA friend once asked me “what type of jeans will make me look slimmer?”

At first it sounded like a simple question that one could answer without breaking a sweat and after giving it some thought I figured out that I had no idea at all.

We all love jeans, and almost everyone has a couple of pairs, but very few people know that some types of jeans can make you look slimmer than you are.

After doing some research, I was able to come up with a list of four types of jeans that can make you look slimmer if you wear them properly.

  1. Flare Jeans

This type of jeans has been around for a very long time and are always coming and going out of fashion. If you find the right pair of flare jeans whether they are in fashion or not you ca look slimmer in them. To look slimmer in this jeans, one should find a pair that stays slim throughout the thigh and only flares out at the knee. To prove that they make a person look slimmer just look at a picture of anyone you know wearing flare jeans and compare that to what they look like in real life.

  1. Skinny Jeans

This is probably the tightest type of jeans that one can buy, and this alone should be an indication that they will make you look slimmer. This kind of jeans has a snug fit in the leg and A tapered fit at the ankle. For you to look slimmer in this kind of jeans look for a dark colored one and pair it with dark colored boots to lengthen your leg line.


  1. Straight Jeans

These jeans as the name suggests are the same width from the knee down. Due to their straight design they make a person’s legs appear longer which in turn makes them look slimmer. If you get the right pair of straight jeans, they can also make your legs look thinner since they do not have any details like bleaching that can make your legs stand out.

  1. Bootcut Jeans

This type of jeans taper on your knees and then widen at the bottom. The widening is meant to enable the jeans fit over a pair of wo2boots since they are popularly worn with boots. The slimming effect of Bootcut jeans comes from the fact that they widen out from the knees which will bring about a balance with the upper body.

The next time a friend or a relative asks you “what type of jeans will make me look slimmer?” you can recommend the above four types. However, it is important also to let them know that how they dress the jeans will also play a significant role in giving them a slimmer look.
