Q&A with our denim expert:

Q: I can never seem to find jeans that fit. What are
some common mistakes I should avoid?

A: I'm so glad you asked because it's our mission to help everyone find the perfect fitting pair of jeans. Allow me to shed some light on the terms associated with the most common misconceptions:

"Curvy": This means that the denim is cut to contour at the hips and side seams and to be narrow at the waist to help prevent against gapping in the back. This doesn't mean plus-sized. Shop all jeans in Fit 4.

"Low rise": This doesn't mean it's only for juniors. Low rise is a great Fit option for any athletic person. Shop all jeans in Fit 5 and Fit 6.

"At waist" and "mid-rise": Contrary to popular belief, jeans with these rises hit about 2-3 fingers below your belly button. They have great slimming qualities, especially in combating our not-so-favorite "muffin top". Shop all jeans in Fit 1 and Fit 2.

The biggest takeaway from this mini-lesson: keep an open mind in your quest to find the perfect fitting jeans. Start with the women's size chart or juniors' size chart, and look at the left side of this page to see what each of our 6 Fits has to offer.

Happy hunting.
