Roughly six per cent of the female population don't have problems finding jeans that fit. Jeans manufacturers are finally realising not all women are created equal. Now, jeans can be purchased by body type as well as size. The "pear" shape is a typical women's body type that features large thighs and hips, slender waist, and average breast size. For this body type, a sense of balance can be created by the type of clothes chosen.

Boot Cut

Boot-cut or flared-leg jeans draw attention away from the thighs, since they are wider from the knees down, making the body look more proportionate. Whereas tapered-leg jeans accent large thighs and hips, boot cut jeans with a thin light blue or grey piping down the outside seams will also give the appearance of longer, thinner legs.

Dark Denim

Dark-coloured jeans have an overall slimming effect. They make the body seem longer and hide any less-than-perfect areas such as large thighs. Add a bright-coloured top or shirt to draw the eye upward away from the lower half of the body. A bright scarf or vest with dark jeans will also work well. Dark jeans in a stretch denim make thighs seem thinner as they do not bag or sag.

Lower Waistband

Jeans with a high waist are unflattering to women with large thighs. A waistband that sits slightly below the natural waistline shortens the overall appearance from waist to thigh, making the thighs look thinner. The lower waistband also eliminates the gaps caused by jeans being too big. A stretch denim with a lower waistband makes larger thighs appear thinner, and also fits properly at the waist.
