Finding that one pair of jeans we absolutely love that also happen to fit perfectly can be a challenge, to say the least.
And what looks great on one person may not necessarily look good on us! Using a reliable denim guide helps alleviate some of this frustration and we find that shopping by your body type will help you narrow down your choices from the start.
Shopping by body type is so much easier now that brands are getting on board. Good American is really leading the way in this space, offering a way to shop online by choosing a model that most resembles your body, instead of the one-model-fits-all way of the past. And once you’ve shopped with Good American’s models that most resemble you, it’s hard to go back! Thankfully, other retailers are catching on. Stitch Fix, who thinks of themselves as more of a tech company than a shopping destination, has a body calculator feature that allows you to find your shape and from there, they serve you preferred fits. And Amazon is getting in the game too, letting you shop by various body type categories, petites through maternity.

Straight-legged jeans look great on smaller frames without overwhelming the silhouette. We’re big fans of Levi’s and AGOLDE for this classic style and love having options, like a pair with a bit more stretch and another that opts for a looser fit.Shop the Jeans
