A pair of jeans is such a staple in every Pinay's wardrobe, and you can find it anywhere. Plus, whatever your budget may be, you could still purchase a good pair. The hard part is finding the best, most flattering fit that will show off your curves. Just like in dating, searching for that ONE TRUE PAIR takes a lot of trial and error. (And probably numerous selfie moments inside the fitting room.)
To make things easier for you, we came up with a foolproof guide that will help lead you to the perfect pair of jeans. Keep scrolling to learn the ~*ways*~.
Don't mind the size labels.
What could be a size 38 on one brand can be a different measurement equivalent to another. Also, don't be pressured to fit into a certain size. What's important is how the jeans look on your body and not the number it says on the tag.ADVERTISMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW ↓
It's always better to fit the pair IRL.
Given that brands do not follow uniform sizing, it can be hard to purchase a pair online unless their size guide is accurate. The old-fashioned way of shopping—where you try it on in a fitting room is still the best way to fit jeans.
Don't worry about the waistband being too big.
We know many women encounter this issue: When the booty and thighs fit snugly but the waistband is loose. This is totally fine because you can have it altered or use a belt to fit on your waist. You can also try Chie Filomena's no-sew hack.
Mind the crotch and the booty creases.
Another factor to look for in jeans is how the denim falls on your crotch and booty. If you see a V-shaped fold on the crotch or the fabric is super tight on the groove between the butt cheeks, you need to go up a size. Also, try squatting while wearing the jeans. If you still feel comfy, then you've got a good pair!CONTINUE READING BELOW ↓watch now

Consider the tailor as your best friend.
We're all born with different bodies so a pair that looks good on your best friend may fall differently on you. For a custom, perfect fit, have your jeans altered by a tailor. You can have the waistband or hemline adjusted to suit your *exact* size.
