THE GOLDEN RULE TO HOW TO SHOP FOR JEANS
We often make impulse purchases because were focusing too much on the sale price. Follow ilovejeans.com’s hard & fast rules to getting the best sale jeans for your body shape as well as a good price!
1: MEASURE YOUR UNIQUE RISE:
Before shopping the net-a-porter sale, you need to do a bit of home work. We all have a unique rise measurement and the key to successful shopping for jeans is knowing this magic number. (You will need to be wearing jeans for this bit.)
a: Take a tape measure and measure the distance from the crotch seam of your jeans upwards to your belly button. Write down this number as this is the highest rise you can wear comfortably for your unique body shape.
b: Then measure from the crotch seam up to two fingers below your belly button. This will give you the measurement of the lowest rise you should wear for your body shape.
By doing this you will have a clear idea of how high and low the rise of a jean needs to be for you to wear comfortably.
For example my highest rise measurement is 9 inches and my lowest is 7.5 inches, I’m short waisted and I know that an 8 inch rise is the most comfortable for my unique body shape but I can go up to a 9 inch rise if I wanted to.
2: CHOOSE YOUR JEAN
Take this MiH Jeans Paris cropped mid-rise skinny jeans, below. I really like the style and I know a red jean is timeless so it would be a good wardrobe investment. I want to check the rise measurement is going to be right for my body shape now I have my magic number.
By clicking on Item measurements,( see below) this brings up all the measurements in all the sizes for this style. In the middle is the rise measurement for the MiH Paris Jean, starting from 8 inches up to 9 inches as the sizing goes up. I can see that this style of jean is the perfect rise for my unique body shape.
Now I know that this sale jean will fit me perfectly and I have saved 50% off in the Net-a-porter Sale….. next item!
