Denimation 201: Jeaniology [jeen-ee-ol-uh-jee]
Upon popular request I have been asked to explain certain “dynamics” of women’s jeans. I’m sure a lot of Urban Grads have noticed that girls have just gotten waAay more curvy. It’s rare you see a woman in those “Wal-Mart cubby” jeans that make their rear end look like it’s four feet tall (unless they are just really, really old school or a senior citizen). That’s because women’s jeans have become a frickin’ science.
WARNING: This post may either give girls who want to appear more curvy hope OR make them more self-conscious about the jeans that they buy.
Here’s a quick run-through…
These particular pairs of jeans have curved, button flap pockets. The curved pocket gives the appearance of roundness; while the buttons add volume. These two features together give the appearance of a more curved bottom.
These trousers have angled pockets flaps which give the appearance of roundness to an otherwise flat rear. Actually, curved seams have always been used to give the appearance of a rounder figure.
These work because the waistband on these jeans goes up slightly in the back, adding a lifted look the seat of these jeans.
So there you have it, if eating more starches doesn’t give you the curves you want then look for jeans with the aforementioned attributes. BUT WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT RESORT TO THIS…
