Rear Backup  

When trying to find jeans to fit and flatter to you, one of the most important features to consider is the BACK POCKET. Its pretty much the only part of the jean that can't be altered, so if your hard-to-fit body part is your rear, you should start your denim search by eliminating unflattering back pockets. The standard rule is:

  • If you are a size 2-6, choose jeans with pockets that are about: 5.5" wide x 5.75" high.

  • If you're a size 8+, choose jeans with pockets that are about 6.5" wide x 6.75" high.
