Here at Revelle, we know every woman’s body is beautiful just the way it is. No changes necessary. However, as a team of women, we knowwwww how hard social media and the beauty industry work to make us feel like there are things that need to be changed (or filtered, or photoshopped…).
If you have a bigger stomach, we know you probably feel this pressure too. That’s why we’ve created this list of jeans that will work with your body’s beautiful shape, not against it.
What To Look For
When it comes to jeans shopping, the only thing that really matters is how you feel. Do the jeans fit you? If so, the size doesn’t matter! Are they comfortable? Will they go with your favorite shirts, sweaters, and accessories? If so, the type of jeans isn’t important.
However, here are some things you can look for to make your shopping experience easier.
- Curvy Styles – Many denim brands make “curvy fit” jeans (we’re looking at you Style & Co and Madewell!). Curvy fit jeans are made to fit your curves. They’re structured differently in order to show off your curves and help you feel comfortable all day.
- Stretch Denim – Because who doesn’t want to wear stretchy pants? Stretch jeans will hug your belly, instead of cutting into it (like more structured jeans might). If you’re shopping online, look for jeans with elastane or spandex in the material. Even 1% elastane will give you enough stretch to be extra comfy.
- Mid-Rise or High-Rise – You may find different waistlines more or less comfortable depending on your specific proportions. However, if you have a bigger stomach, you will most likely prefer mid-rise or high-waisted jeans. Low-rise jeans are more likely to cut into your stomach, making them less comfortable to wear when sitting down.
- Tummy Control – Some jeans have built-in support for your midsection. They are usually called “tummy control” jeans and have a compression panel to fit and flatter your curves.
9 Pairs Of Jeans For A Bigger Stomach
If you have a bigger belly, no sweat. Every woman’s body has different curves and shapes… and that’s what makes every body unique and beautiful!
Here are nine pairs of jeans that will work with your body shape
A classic pair of skinny jeans… what could be better? These Democracy jeans are high-rise, stretchy, and have built-in “ab tech” to hold and shape your stomach.
Bootcut jeans are one of the most flattering styles because they elongate your legs and draw the eye down. This pair is no exception! It comes in medium blue or black, has slimming pockets, and has a high-rise waistline. They are also made with stretch denim for maximum comfort.
We love the relaxed fit of these jeans! They have a slouchy boyfriend silhouette with a thicker, double button waistband for extra support. They also come in a vintage-inspired light-wash (our fav!) and have a rolled hem that can be unrolled for extra length!
These SPANX skinny jean leggings are perfect for all the jegging lovers out there! They have light distressing throughout and a pull-on elastic waistband (read: NO buttons or zippers to fuss with). Just like SPANX shapewear, these jeans will compress you in all the right areas while remaining super stretchy.
We love a classic pair of Levi’s. Especially high-waisted, super skinny Levi’s. These stretchy jeans come in a wide variety of colors and levels of distressing, so there’s something for everyone.
In our opinion, white jeans are lovely all year round. They’re crisp and clean (and a great way to switch up your go-to outfits!). This pair from PAIGE is high-rise, stretchy, and slightly cropped (perfect for showing off your favorite shoes!).
New work jean alert! Not only are these dark-wash jeans office appropriate, but they have a sleek, elongating silhouette. Plus, they have a 29.5” inseam which makes them perfect for petites.
