Best Jeans for Apple-Shaped Bodies

Even though everyone has a unique body shape and size, we can all agree on a universal truth: We love when we find a pair of denim that fits like a glove! It’s not always easy to find your perfect fit, but when you do, you never want to let them go. For apple shaped bodies, the goal is to create balance from the waist down that flatters your figure.

Get to know your body type! Before finding your perfect pair of jeans, think about the curves you want to emphasize. An apple shape is recognized by a less-defined waistline with a narrow rear and hips that are balanced by a well-proportioned pants silhouette.

Elastic Waistbands

Because of an apple shaped body’s wider waist and narrow hips, jeans with an elastic waistband create a custom-feeling fit that forms to every curve. Opt for a trendy silhouette or edgy distressing, but with an adjustable elastic waist that makes your shape the center of attention.


An added bonus: Many elastic waist jeans are designed with allover stretchy fabric, assuring a completely flexible fit! Wear them with the top of your choice and prepare to turn heads with a figure that stands out.

Flare Leg Shapes

To add more volume to narrow legs, flare and bootcut jeans are the way to go! Super trendy wide legs balance out an apple shape, creating a silhouette that’s extra-roomy and always comfortable. Staying away from tight-fitting denim does more for your figure, balancing out your curves in a looser fit.


When in doubt, if you’re in between sizes, we recommend sizing up to give yourself extra room to move. Looser jeans are more flattering and help you feel more confident.

Dark Wash Denim

It’s no secret that black clothing tends to be the most flattering because of its slimming effect! Consider the LBD: It’s a favorite for a reason. The same is true for women’s jeans. Black or dark wash denim makes your bottom half look its best. When styling an outfit with darker denim, we like to reach for light and bright tops that create contrast. Show off the curves that make you confident in dark bottoms and a bright top. This pairing won’t let you down, no matter where you wear it!

Styles to Try

There are so many denim options to accentuate your figure! Even skinny jeans and bootcuts have the power to make your apple-shape curves stand out. Show off the slimness of your legs with a chic pair of cropped skinnies. No matter your height, an ankle-length pair hits at just the right place to stay stylish wherever you’re headed. The bootcut is a classic, with a more subtle flare than dramatic wide legs. They still balance out your shape like flared jeans for a slimming effect without as much fabric.

Find Your Favorite Fit

While these recommendations are our top tips, there are so many other denim styles to try that might also make you feel your best! From high waisted pairs to distressed skinnies with attitude, it’s always exciting to try something new as you seek your new favorite.
