Because it's not too much to want jeans that fit

Is anyone else totally annoyed at the hype that has been created over the skinny jean craze? If you aren't 6 feet tall and have ultra thin legs, this look just isn't going to work for you. Fashion icons like Audrey Hepburn always looked great because they stuck with styles that worked for them. Avoid chasing the trends and purchase a pair of pants that flatter your figure.

I love supporting products that are Canadian designed and manufactured. I discovered DISH jeans awhile back and immediately fell in love with them. Not only are they designed and produced in Canada, but they also have a great fit, variety of styles, contemporary look and relatively decent price tag compared to other premium denim brands. DISH jeans are located at City of Angels on Queen, Lileo in the Distillery District, and Trixie Inc. on Bloor (for more retailers check out Dish's website).

If you are getting frustrated trying to find a pair of jeans that fit, don't get too set on a specific brand. I always get annoyed when I can't find the perfect pair of jeans so I've included a few helpful hints to get you on your way to finding a pair of jeans that fit your body type.

Larger Legs
If you are a little larger in the thigh area, wear darker washes of denim that have a slight flare to balance out the leg.

Tummy Tuck
Don't go low or high rise on the waistline. Try to find a pant that comes just at or slightly below the belly button.

Smaller Figure
No problem! Find a straight leg pant and avoid large hems at the bottom of the pant or cuffs. They will shorten your leg.

If you are Super Tall
Make sure your pants are long enough. A lot of the premium denim jeans are very long.

Big Butts
The first thing we do when we try on a pair of jeans is check out our derriere. Avoid extra pockets or embellishments in the rear.

No Butt
Find pants with (higher) pockets, embellishments, or embroidery on the back of the pant.

Wide Hips
Find a mid-rise pant that has a straight leg.

To be Super Tall
Put on a pair of heels. It has been proven that women stand straighter in heels, and the extra height will help elongate the leg.
