Boot-cut jeans are a classic favorite that look particularly good on many full-figured girls. The flared leg shape can balance out wider hips, giving an overall slimmer look to women who have pear or apple-shaped figures.
This classic blue jean style by Levi's is available from Amazon for under $50. It comes in sizes 16 to 24.
Stretchy Black Jeans
The key to selecting comfortable jeans that look as good as they feel starts with material that has a bit of give. These stretchy tapered jeans come in black denim and are designed to fit like leggings. Pair them with an oversized shirt or sweater for a casual look, or wear with a long blazer for a more put-together style.
These stylish jeans come in sizes 14W to 24W and have a 30-inch inseam. They are available for just over $100 from Zappos.
If you find dealing with buttons or snaps and zippers to be a hassle, opt instead for a pair of pull-on jeans. This good-looking cropped style from Lee is a perfect, super-comfy choice for casual wear. If you'd rather keep the fact that your jeans are pull-on to yourself, just select a top that falls to your hip bone or below when you wear these pants. You'll look great and feel even better!
This pair of pull-on jeans comes in sizes 16 to 24W and costs just under $40.
Jewel and Earth Tone Corduroy Jeans
Not all jeans have to be blue or black - or even denim! These straight-leg corduroy jeans by Jag can be dressed up or down. Available in sizes 12Plus through 34Plus, these pants are cut specifically to be flattering to full-figured women.
Priced at less than $40 per pair, you may want to pick up a pair in each of the six available shades.
There is no limit to the color options for jeans. This stylish pair of colored jeans really pops in bright fuchsia. Designed for casual wear, this straight-legged style stops just above the ankle. Wear them with flats and your favorite top and you're sure to turn heads anywhere you go.

Even skinny jeans can flatter fuller figures if they have the proper proportions. A well-fitted pair of skinny jeans can show off curves to the max. Just remember that "skinny" doesn't mean "too small" and you'll be headed in the right direction. If you can't move freely or if there is a muffin-top over the waistband, go up a size or opt for a different style.
This deep blue colored pair of skinny jeans from Jag Jeans comes in size 14W with a 31-inch inseam and is priced at less than $30.
If you're a curvy gal, but don't want to look dowdy, consider trying on a pair of ripped jeans, such as the style pictured here. These jeans are high-waisted to help hide bulge, but still have that on-trend look with rips and rolled ankles.
Priced at less than $25, this unique look is available in sizes ranging from 14 to 24Plus.
