Inverted Triangle Body Shape / Athletic Body Shape
Best jeans for Inverted Triangle Body Shape/ Athletic Body Shape
An athletic body shape can refer to the inverted triangle body shape which consists of narrow hips and shoulders that are appreciably wider than your hip-line. Athletic body shape can also refer to women who have muscular legs and thighs. Athletic figures characterized by muscular legs and thighs may be any shape – for example, an inverted triangle, rectangle, have the curves and a small waist of an hour-glass or pear shape or have extra weight around the middle like apple body types.
A wide belt worn at the hip also has the effect of making narrow hips appear wider.

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.

If you have an athletic body shape with very muscular legs, there are brands such as Barbell Apparel that make specialty jeans for your figure. Your best bet if you have such an athletic build is specialty denim brands like Barbell Apparel. But there are some general tips to ensure a good fit. (These style tips are further on, after the next two photos of jeans from Barbell Apparel.)
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.
Bootcut and Flare Jeans – Relaxed Cut or Stretch Denim
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.

Jeans With Stretch Denim
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.
