Tummy Troubles
Battling a belly bulge? Trying to hide your tummy? London says a boot-cut jean can help to balance out a heavier midsection. Women with a tummy typically have thinner limbs; the thicker your limbs, the worse a boot cut will look on you, she says. Look for a midrise, and make sure the jean hits across the belly, not above or below it. The width of trouser leg jeans can also help create a more balanced body line.

Flatter Your Hips
London says women with wide hips should stick with a midrise jean that is slightly on the lower side in order to fit around the widest part without creating love handles. Also, look for a straight leg or a trouser leg, which falls down from the hips to create a longer-looking leg line. Ladies with hips typically have thicker limbs, and straight-leg jeans help give the leg a uniform width. Boot-cut jeans only serve to highlight the thickness of the thigh in relation to the knee.
