Women's Plus Size

Plus-sized people agree that shopping can be extremely difficult. Finding a stylish yet comfortable pair of jeans is a rarity. The majority of jeans either hug your legs too tightly or cut into the waist or stomach. Locating the right pair of jeans for your body type can add the illusion of longer legs and smaller hips.

Plus size jeans are increasingly being made with a stretch material that allows the jean fabric to give slightly. Be on the lookout for the word “stretch” when perusing women plus size clothing and plus size jean labels. Stretch fabric is made of a cotton/poly/spandex blend. As such, it virtually glides on the body and stretches only when and where needed. Stretch fabric jeans provide maximum comfort and enhance your shape. Stretch jeans will continue to stretch out with wear, helping to keep you feeling comfortable throughout your day.

The next thing to look for in plus size jeans is the “mid-rise” qualities. Many of the jeans available today are “low-rise” jeans and look great if you have no curves. Individuals who are plus size should avoid low-rise clothing because they do not compensate for larger waists, hips or thighs. Low-cut jeans will push belly fat above the waist band and emphasize the midriff area. Most plus size people find low-rise jeans very uncomfortable to wear.
