Denim brands are using the latest technological advances such as sculpting technology – used by Levi’s and many well-known denim brands – to adapt to modern styling. That means, you should never have to worry about ill-fitting jeans ever again.
Levi’s developed this technology to deal with women’s different shapes, focusing on the hip-to-waist ratio, sectioning it into three Curve ID shapes for slimmer to fuller hips: Slight, Demi and Bold.
Once you know what your body shape is, try out our guideline to ensure that your jeans are a great fit. Investing in a good pair of fitted denims is as vital as investing in long-lasting shoes.

If you’re a curvy girl, slim fits will work best for you. Curves call for denims that are high-cut at the back to fit over your seat, keep you covered and avoid that awkward gap between your butt and the belted section of your jeans. Perhaps opt for a solid tone instead of faded, which tends to create an illusion of thickened legs. Risk the ripped jeans, but try not to have them too high up. Stylists advise that you draw attention to the smaller parts of your body, like your waist.
Be playful with your longer legs. Boyfriend jeans are a great fit for women who are tall and slender. To create shape, opt for skinny jeans that will accentuate your body. Vintage-cut jeans in a light blue fade are the perfect style to try out.
If you have full hips and thighs, a higher back cut is advisable. Stretch denims work best to avoid love handles. Flared jeans balance out curvy hips and help even out your proportions. Levi’s sculpting technology (Curve ID) will help you hold everything in place while comfortably going about your day.
Women with smaller frames can play around with cropped, straight fitted jeans. Skinny jeans are also easy and can create an illusion of extra length. If you want to accentuate curves, wear jeans with flap pockets, fancy stitching or embellishments that draw attention and emphasis to that area.
