Create Curves

An inverted triangle body shape can feature a slim build  or a more toned build. Many models are inverted triangle body types with broad shoulders and a narrow waist.

This body shape can wear skinny style, straight leg or boot-cut/flared jeans but if you want a curvier appearance a flared jean can give you that look.

Boot-cut jeans or flare jeans can create curves, balance your figure and make your legs look longer and leaner and accentuate the waist.

Inverted triangle figures look great in all jean styles…

The inverted triangle body shape can also rock high-waist jeans but these can flatten your backside. If you need help to have a perkier looking backside, back pockets that sit higher can be an instant butt lift. Fading on the seat can also help round out your rear.  Jeans back pocket design can make your bottom look rounder. Flap back pockets, rounded back pockets or back pockets with detail such as stitching or embellishment  will add volume.

Coverage and Fit

A mid rise or a high rise / high waist jean can insure coverage if you have a more muscular butt and hip area and make you appear more curvy.

A boot-cut jean or flare jean can make you appear curvier if you have more of a muscular, thick rectangle shape (brick). A stretch denim jean fit can be tighter around the thighs and butt and a bit looser around the calves. Another good choice for this type of athletic body shape is a flare jean that’s cut looser in the thigh.

Jeans especially cut for a curvy figure can be great for muscular bottoms and thighs because curvy fit jeans usually have extra room in the hip and thigh and are made with stretch denim.

Here are a couple of the many brands of curvy fit jeans that offer jeans cut bigger in the hip and thigh area.

Fit and toned legs can look great in a skinny jean or cigarette jean. Just make sure that they are made of stretchy material to accommodate muscular thighs and calves.

Another option is  straight leg jeans for those with muscular thighs. Straight-cut jeans with a bit of stretch can make for a better fit. The fit can be tighter around the thighs and butt and a bit looser around the calves for a “skinny jean” look.
