1/6/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Wednesday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 7. January 2013 08:00

The goal after the food extravaganza of the holidays is to fit into our favorite pair of jeans.  Exercise and clean eating helps, but the kind of styles available can also influence the fit.

If you have a pear shape, steer away from skinny jeans.  It doesn't flatter your shape.  Wide or boat cuts give you the best silhouette  for your shape.A mid or high-rise waist works best for this shape.

If your posterior region is a bit flatter, look for flare cuts (especially if you have bigger thighs).  Mid-rise and low-rise styles are most flattering.

If you have a plus size shape, the most flattering shape is flared or straight cut.  Don't try to 'out-bag' shape issues.  It just makes your shape look larger.  But don't reverse the trend to the skin tight variety either.  Choose mid-rise style that falls right across your navel.

Take a friend to help you see your best style.
