Hi all, Just wanted to ask the jeans experts which brands are best for hourglass shapes. I am 5'7 and a size 10 and would like to purchase a really good quality pair. I have been leaning towards Seven and NYDJ. I am looking for either boot cut or straight with a mid to high rise in a uniform indigo wash. Would love to hear any recommendations from fellow hourglass ladies!
I have 2 pairs of Hudson bootcuts which fit very well on my hourglass-ish size 12 figure. They sit quite low on the hips though. Their Elm wash is the perfect colour for jeans IMO. Their 'Beth' baby bootcuts and skinnies look good too. Expensive but can be found discounted online - I found a random pair in the sales in John Lewis but not sure they stock them any more.
Levi's bold curve ID jeans look brilliant. They definitely have straight, not sure about bootcut. Available in John Lewis, but I think better to buy/try on 1st pair in a Levi's shop as they have the full range there
I don't think "hourglass" is sufficient info really. Jeans in particular are something that I believe nobody can really recommend.
You've told us that your waist is small compared to your hips, but not whether you have a long waist (tummy button to crotch length) or where your widest part is (it's probably not your actual hips but somewhere high up on your thighs).
But I now want to go straight to east London THIS MINUTE and ask Brix for her advice <tragic 80s indie kid>. Mind you, if her taste in jeans is anything like her taste in men we may not see eye to eye.
