Sheena's uplifting jeans

Balancing Act
Sheena Barr, 33

Before: "I have a flat butt—most of my weight is in my upper body," Sheena says. These sag-prone jeans, with their low-lying pockets and excess fabric, just accentuate the imbalance between top and bottom.

After: Shapely stretch denim with rear-end detail—back yoke, horizontal stitching on pockets—produces a higher, rounder-looking derriere. Before the shoot, Sheena's price limit for jeans was $40; now she'd go up to $200: "It makes more sense to have two pairs that fit than eight that don't."
