White jeans get a bad rap. Rumor has it that they make your bottom look big, show every little lump and bump, and can even be see-through, leaving little to the imagination.
Here are a few tips to help you find the right pair for your figure:
Hour-glass figure gals:
Avoid a straight-cut waistband, which will be too loose around the middle. Look for a “cut-in” or contoured waistband that will fit your waist and your hips.. Straight leg or boot cut usually look best, as wider-leg styles tend to take away from your gorgeous curves!
Ladies who carry a little extra in the middle:
High-waisted jeans work great. Look for jeans with good stretch, too, to help avoid that muffin top look. Pair your jeans up with an empire waist top (like A & D’s Muse) and you’ve got a rocking outfit! I used to love “low-riders” but these days I avoid them like the plague. If you like the look of lower cut jeans, try finding a pair of mid or high rise with a shorter zipper. It will give you the look of a low cut, but will be much more comfortable.

Girls with fewer curves:
For gals with fuller hips & thighs:
Classic boyfriend jeans offer roomy comfort without looking sloppy. Boot-cuts do a great job in balancing out your body, but steer away from skinny leg or really narrow cut jeans as they emphasize your hips and thighs. Love the skinny leg look? Try wearing a longer top.

Remember, style is personal. The tips I offer are based on my experience and what I’ve learned, but you need to be true to who you are and what works for you. Always, always – “Do YOU, Boo!”
And finally, the last tip: Obviously, wearing black or bright colors under a pair of white jeans is a surefire way to show off your taste in skivvies. But white isn’t a good choice either. Always wear nude underwear… You (and everyone else) will be glad you did!
