If you have wider thighs or muscular, athletic legs finding jeans can be a struggle but look for jeans that have a relaxed fit or wide legs that skim, not hug your legs. Jeans that have a slight flare offset the width at the hips, creating the appearance of more length. Trouser styles tend to work best for athletic figures. Shopbop has a great collection of wide-leg trousers at www.shopbop.com.
The best jeans to try for Athletic Figures and Fuller Thighs are:
7 For All Mankind The Trouser: Everything you could ever want in a trouser jean, the leg is straight at the hip providing a fluid casual feel that lends itself to pure comfort. Available at www.7forallmankind.com.
Paige Premium Denim Hidden Hills and Bentley: Hidden Hills is a classic well-fitting, higher rise jean available in a variety of leg widths (bootcut, skinny) and the Bentley is a higher rise wide leg jean that slims the leg. Available at www.paigeusa.com.
AG Jeans The Boyfriend: Rejoice for boyfriend jeans, their looser legs are the perfect and fashionable jeans for gals with wider thighs. They hug your body in all the right places and skim over the “not so great” places. AG Jeans makes the best boyfriends out there. Available at www.agjeans.com.
Joe’s Jeans The Best Friend: This is Joe’s take on an easy fit, relaxed hip and thigh with a slimmer leg opening that creates a fashionable look. Joe’s are known for their super soft, comfortable denim. Available at www.joesjeans.com.
Miss Me Bootcut Jeans: Miss Me makes premium, fashionable denim with a more forgiving fit than other designer denim brands, plus they carry extended sizes. They hug your legs without squeezing them and fit nicely around the waist. Look for the darker denim colors. Available at www.missme.com.
Another great trick to finding the perfect jeans for Athletic Figures and Fuller Thighs is to go up a size or two until they fit the way you want in the leg and thigh and then take them to a tailor to have the waist taken in so they fit perfectly. Sometimes you have to create the perfect jeans.
