Walking into a women's clothing store today to buy a new pair of denim jeans requires that you understand all of the terms that clothing manufacturers use to label their product. By having an understanding of what each of these terms mean, you can select a new pair of jeans that will fit your body type and will be comfortable to wear.

Here is information on each of the most common denim jean terms, their meanings, and their fit designations to help you buy the right jeans to meet your needs:

Skinny Jeans

Skinny jeans are made of flexible denim types and are designed to be tight-fitting all the way down your leg to your shoe. This style of jeans needs to be washed after each wearing in order to keep their shape.

Skinny jeans are made for all body types and look nice when worn with a tunic or an over-sized sweater.

Low-Rise Jeans

Low-rise jeans are cut in such a way that the distance from the waistband to the crotch seam is shorter than in other types of jeans. These jeans are made of more sturdy types of denim and will retain their shape through multiple wears between washings.

Low-rise jeans look best on people with symmetrical bodies that are not too large around the waist. The reason is that larger-waisted people may experience issues with bulging over the waistband of low-rise jeans. Low-rise jeans look good with shorter tops and fitted cotton shirts.

Flare Jeans

Flare jeans have legs that are the shape of an inverted "V". They are smaller at the knee area than in the thigh and flare out to the bottom. 

Flare jeans can be worn by people with all body types and look the best when worn with sandals or boots. This style of jean also looks fantastic with a thin flowing blouse.

Boot-Cut Jeans

Finally, boot-cut jeans are the design style that is cut like a traditional pair of cowboy jeans, but the legs flare out towards the bottom. This bottom flaring is to allow the jeans to fit over boots without binding as you walk around.

Boot-cut jeans are made of many types of denim and look flattering on everyone. As the name implies, boot-cut jeans are a must if you will be wearing boots with your jeans and want them to be under your pants. 

Boot-cut jeans look flattering when worn with any type of shoes, shirts, and jackets.
