Which Jean Pockets Are Right For You? 7 Tips To Make Your Butt Look Better

Jean shopping for fall? It’s time, isn’t it? But there’s the unending dilemma of finding jeans that fit, and that’s enough to deter some of us all together. Hark, Denim Therapy is here to assist! We can knock one element of the denim fit dilemma out the window so you can enjoy some autumnal retail bliss. Consider the following seven pointers when shopping for jeans if you’re worried about your back end (and really, who isn’t?):


1. Smaller pockets will make your butt look bigger.

2. Pockets angled outward will make your butt look wider.

3. Pockets angled too far inward are awkward looking, and morph the shape of your butt.

4. When the outer edge of the pocket reaches just below the side belt loop, and the pockets measure about 5 1/2 to 6″ in length, that’s a good standard for medium-sized women. (IE: Size 28-32)

5. Put them on and look at them! If you feel like the pockets are too tiny, they probably are.

6. Slightly oversized pockets can create a slimming effect. Double points for pockets with a wide flip closure on top.

7. Slight texture, like a stitched or embossed logo, can create interest that does not create a plumping effect, while too much texture is sure to make your butt look bigger.
