Big thighs, small thighs, inbetween thighs. They’re all beautiful. But when you do have curvy thighs, it can be tricky to find perfectly fitting jeans. In this article, you’ll find some of the best jeans for big thighs that you can choose this season.
You might have curvy thighs because of your body shape. If you’re a pear shape, you’re likely to have larger hips and thighs in proportion to your upper body. Or, perhaps you love to exercise and you are struggling to find jeans as your thighs are muscular. Either way, you may find your new favorite pair of jeans among the denim choices below.
Best jeans for big thighs – what to look out for
Jeans for pear shaped body
If you’re looking for jeans for bigger thighs, you may have a pear shaped body where you hips and thighs are your widest part.
If this is the case, you’ll also find inspiration in this article on how to dress the pear shape.
Look out for bootcut jeans to balance your figure, darker colored jeans worn with lighter tops to draw the eye upwards or slim jeans that skim the legs rather than clinging.
Choose a darker color
Of course this is entirely up to you as you might want to opt for lighter shades of denim depending on what’s on-trend and your own preference.
Personally, I like a darker shade as I think they’re more versatile. Plus, if you’re self conscious about your thighs, a darker shade will be slimming.
Look for some stretch
Look out for jeans you can pull on and that will have a little give. The addition of spandex, elastane or lycra will help your jeans to fit properly and be comfortable.
Brands that suit curvy thighs
Some good brands to look out for that are designed for larger thighs are:
jeans for big thighs small waist
You may have larger thighs and a small waist if you have an hourglass figure. In this case, your chest will be around the same width as your jeans. One of the difficulties in finding jeans that fit well is that if you have an hourglass figure, your jeans can gape at the waist if they fit at the thigh.
