I Could Wear... Muffin Top Edition

8 Best Jeans For Women With A Muffin Top (And Why We Hate That Phrase)


Let’s get one thing straight: we HATE labeling women’s bodies. The fashion industry has done a number on the way we look at ourselves… from the labels (muffin tops, hip dipspear shaped…), to the f*cked up size chart, and the ads that only feature slim, retouched models… It’s no surprise that shopping in-person for jeans leaves us feeling disappointed. 

Here at Revelle, we believe every body is beautiful… and shopping for jeans should be much easier (I think we can all agree to those two things, right?). Since denim is kind of our thing, we’ve pulled together this list of jeans and some tips for the next time you go shopping. Because you deserve to wear jeans you feel confident and comfortable in.

If you want even more jeans recommendations, join the Revelle community (it’s free!). When you answer a few short questions, you’ll get access to an online jeans store filled with jeans just for you. Your store will be populated with jeans based on your body shape, preferences, and budget! We’ll even recommend which size to buy based on how each brand fits.

What Types Of Jeans To Look For

It’s super normal to have a muffin top (even though we hate that phrase). Part of being a woman is having beautiful curves! That said, we totally understand wanting to dress your body shape in a way that makes you feel most confident and comfortable. 

Here are our top tips for the next time you go jeans shopping!

    1. Look for high-waisted jeans. The least comfortable rise for anyone with a muffin top is low-rise. Low-rise jeans (or even mid-rise jeans depending on the length of your torso) sit below your belly-button, so if you’re a curvier in that area, it may be uncomfortable to sit or move around. High-rise jeans, on the other hand, will sit closer to (or above) your natural waist, which is flattering and more comfortable!
    2. Opt for loose-fitting silhouettes. If you don’t want jeans that cling to your midsection, look for looser silhouettes. Our favorites include boyfriend jeans, mom jeans, and straight leg jeans.
    3. Choose jeans with extra mid-section support. If you prefer tighter fitting silhouettes (or even if you like the looser look), find jeans with extra support. Some jeans include tummy control panels or waistbands that will help your lower belly feel secure and sculpted.

Although we hate the phrase “muffin top,” our #1 goal has always been to help you find jeans you feel confident in! So if you’re looking for jeans that will flatter your lower midsection and keep you feeling secure, here are our favorites.

This is one of our favorite pairs right now. Not only is the high-rise waistline flattering, but the criss-cross feature makes them exciting and different. These jeans are loose throughout, so they’ll never squeeze you or make you feel uncomfy.

AGOLDE Criss Cross Jeans

If you’ve been looking for a new pair of white jeans, we found them! These FRAME jeans are high-waisted (so no awkward bunching on your lower belly) and they have a chic straight-leg silhouette. It’s the perfect pair if you like jeans that hug your curves, but aren’t skin tight.

FRAME Le High High Rise Ankle Straight Leg Jeans

The Marilyn jeans are one of our all time favs. They are high-waisted, have an elongating straight-leg silhouette, and a tummy-control panel.

NYDJ Marilyn Tummy-Control Straight-Leg Jean

We are obsessed with this pair of jeans from Style & Co! They are super high-rise and come in medium blue or black. Our favorite part? They’re “curvy fit.” That means they’re made to fit and flatter your curves, so you don’t have to worry about how they’ll look on your muffin-top area. Plus, they’re made with stretch denim for even more comfort.

Style & Co Women’s High-Rise Curvy Fit Bootcut Jeans

The same trendy pair as above in additional sizes!

Style & Co Plus-Size Bootcut Jeans

These jeans have pretty much everything you could ask for if you’re trying to fit and flatter your lower stomach. They have a supportive mid-section (including a two button waistband) and a relaxed fit.

INC Plus Size Tummy Control Boyfriend Jeans

If you’re a jeggings lover, take a peek at this pair from SPANX! Since SPANX is known for their comfortable shapewear, it’s no surprise they made it on our list. These pull-on skinny jeans have an elastic waistband, a compression shaping panel (a huge win if you’re trying to minimize the look of your muffin top area) and are made with a super stretchy elastane-blend fabric. We love!

SPANX Distressed Denim Skinny Jean Leggings

These are the perfect “any occasion jeans.” They have a high-rise waistband and they come in 4 different shades (so if you love them, you can get more than one color)! These jeans have a 28” inseam, so they’re perfect if you’re on the shorter side or prefer a cropped look.

Plus, we’ll recommend which size to buy at checkout based on how each brand fits.
