The perfect pair of jeans…it’s something that almost everyone looks for at one point or another. I know from personal experience that it can be a challenging task. They fit great at the store but once you get them home, they are too tight. Or, you go from clothing store to clothing store, finding nothing that fits or that looks right on you. In order to help save some time and hassle, here are a few tips to keep in mind the next time you go on a jean hunt.
Every brand seems to have their own ideas when it comes to sizes. Everyone is different. Brands can run anywhere between 1 to 3 sizes smaller, or larger, than others. It can be frustrating to no end. To save some time and keep from having to go through several pairs of jeans, make sure to know your measurements beforehand. Primarily, you will want to measure your waist where the jeans will be sitting. You can usually looking up the sizing chart for any brand on their website, so it will give you a place to start once you start trying them on.
Fabric & Cut
While you can easily find jeans that are 100% denim, many brands now offer variants at less expensive prices. I’ve gotten pairs that had elastic woven in to makes them more stretchy. However, this made the material very thin, causing them to rip easily. I ended up spending more money on buying replacements every month then what I was saving buy going with a cheaper brand. The less denim that is used, the weaker the material will be.
Cut is also an important factor when looking for jeans, and usually affects the size to some degree. Skinny jeans for women will be tight all the way down the leg, while boot cut will be more relaxed and have a wider opening at the foot in order to go down over shoes. It’s best to go with what will flatter your body the best.
Designer or Regular
There are hundreds, if not thousands, of designer jeans out there, just like regular jeans. Designer jeans are generally made better and last longer than regular jeans, while regular jeans are generally more affordable. In the end, it all comes down to how much you want to pay. Designer jeans, like True Religion Brand Jeans, can be upwards of $200 or more. So, if you are looking for designer, be prepared to pay more.
Whether you are looking for designer jeans for women or just something simple, keeping these tips in mind will help you out.
