TOP 5 TIPS FOR BUYING JEANS IF YOU'RE AN HOURGLASS SHAPE
1/ tip one for buying jeans when you're an hourglass shape.
Buy the smallest jeans size you can. I know that the last thing you'll probably want to do is buy jeans that feel tight on but denim almost ALWAYS relaxes a little, even expensive denim, so it's a good idea to buy jeans that feel a little tight when you try them on as this allows for them relaxing. When you're trying jeans on, take in your usual size, and take in a half size smaller. If you can get into the smaller pair, I recommend going for those. They should relax to the right size after a few hours of wear.
2 / Tip two for buying jeans when you're an hourglass shape.
The most flattering rise for most hourglass shaped women are high rises as they tend to have a slightly more curved waist which will fit your waist a little better. They're also a fantastic way to highlight your defined waist and showcase your legs.
3/ tip three for buying jeans when you're an hourglass shape.
Look for styles that are in a 'curvy' fit. These are cut to accommodate a defined waist and a curvy frame so they ten to fit really well and rarely have that irritating gaping at the back of the waistband.

5/ tip five for buying jeans when you're an hourglass shape
