Nine out of ten women own at least one pair of jeans. And more than half say that they have trouble finding a pair that fits, according to a survey from Consumer Reports ShopSmart magazine.
ShopSmart checked out jeans that promise to flatter your figure to see if they help.
Saleswoman Karen Rushneck says, "OK, then you would do really well with this one..."
Rushneck specializes in jeans and says the right pair can make a huge difference.
Rushneck says, "Just because something is trendy doesn't mean it's going to be perfect for your body type."
Consumer Reports ShopSmart's Jody Rohlena checked out several jeans that promise to flatter.
Rohlena says, "We bought jeans that claim to slim, shape, and tuck and asked several of our staffers to try them on and compare them to their old jeans."
First Melissa-her old jeans are from the juniors department and she didn't like how they looked from the back.
The $42 pair promises to help--and it did. They're Lee's Perfectly Lifts You.
Antonella's old jeans gave her a muffin top and just didn't flatter her at the waist. They also did nothing to elongate her legs.
With a $44 pair, she looks slimmer and taller. The waist fits better, too-no muffin top!
They're Levi's Perfectly Slimming 512 Straight Leg.
And Jennifer's been losing weight so her jeans are too big and baggy-hiding her new figure.
The $50 ones make Jen look a size smaller. They're LL Bean's Slimming Jeans.
What's ShopSmart's take?
Rohlena says, "You don't need to spend a fortune. It's all about the fit and what feels and looks right on your body."
And just in case you thought you were the only one-in ShopSmart's survey, super low-waisted jeans are the style women most want to go away and never come back.
