Hey hey everyone!
Continuing talking about jeans and body shapes, I am today writing about jeans for the banana or rectangle shaped woman!
If you are new to the blog and don’t know exactly what your body shape is, you might want to go check out post I wrote last year, giving you an introduction to the topic. And remember, you might be between two body shapes, so don’t panic if you can’t find one body shape that is exactly yours!
You are a banana or rectangle shaped woman if you have virtually no curves. You are basically a straight line from your shoulders to your hips and your waist is the same size or maybe one or two centimeters smaller. If you are tall and skinny, then you have what people usually call the “Model Body” and we all hate you! (I’m kidding, we don’t really hate you!!!)
The good news is you can wear basically anything you want. The bad news is…well there is not really a bad news… What you want is to create the illusion of curves in your body and avoid hiding your body shape. You are beautiful and have to keep that in mind!
So, skinny jeans will look great on you without much thought. Try going to styles that have details in the hips and bum, so that you’ll draw attention to that area, and it will make you seem like you have a curvy bottom. Flared out jeans will also look great on you, but go for a style that is just a bit flared out so you avoid looking like you are drowning in them. And again, look for details on your hips because it will give you the illusion of curves!
Oh, and unless you are blessed with some toned steel abs (and again, all of us who do sit-ups every day and still have the wobbles in our belly, wanna hate you) or are a teenager who still looks like a super model (enjoy those years sweetie =P) you should stay clear from low rise jeans. Instead, go for a mid rise that will look great on everyone and flatter you very much. And you will be comfortable as well!
I hope you liked this post! Let me know what you thought!
