The next problem area we’re going to tackle? A round tummy. If your midsection is your biggest issue when trying to find a pair of flattering jeans, we hear you. Perhaps you’ve tried wearing shapewear under your denim to no avail, or maybe you’ve given up on jeans altogether because that midsection constriction isn’t worth the trouble.
From high-rise jeans, stretch denim, straight leg jeans—we scoured the market for tummy-friendly denim picks from the likes of AG, DL1961, and Old Navy to name a few. We even have a pair of denim jeggings from shapewear juggernaut Spanx that will blow your mind!

The take away? Streamline your look with high-waisted, dark denim, that hits at the ankle. And remember to stick to clean washes with stretch that will hug your tummy (not strangle!) for a smooth fit. These elements will create a flattering silhouette that not only flattens your form, but will elongate your frame.
