Body Type 101: Best Jeans for Apple Shape

Dressing for your body shape can make all the difference in finding outfits that flatter your best features. In this article, we’re going to fill you in on everything you need to know about the apple body type and how to dress it up to make you look and feel fantastic. At Democracy clothing, we prioritize the balance between comfort and style to make sure you feel supported and beautiful in every piece you get from us. Let’s dive into all things apple body shape!


What Is Apple Body Shape? 


An apple body shape typically features a larger bust and broad shoulders with narrower hips and long, slender legs. Apple-shaped women tend to have a less defined waist than other body types. With the torso typically being larger than the legs, it takes some strategy to balance out an apple-shaped body. 


One of the best parts of having an apple-shaped figure is long slender legs that are perfect for wearing denim. If you are looking for the best jeans for apple shape figures, you’re in the right place!  


How To Tell Your Body Shape

The first step towards finding the best denim and outfits for you is determining your body shape.


There are five main body shapes and most women fall under one of the categories. Here’s a quick summary of each body to shape to see which one closest fits your figure: 


  • Rectangle: Typically characterized by broad shoulders and hips that are around the same width. Does not have a very defined waist.  
  • Apple: Larger bust and broad shoulders with an undefined waist and slender legs.  
  • Inverted Triangle: Broader shoulders with a narrow waist. Usually have a smaller bottom and slender legs.  
  • Hourglass: Shoulders and hips are proportional with a defined waist. Usually, have larger busts and bottoms.  
  • Pear: Narrower shoulders and small waist with larger bottom and thighs.


In this article, we’re focusing on apple body shape outfits and jeans. If you are a different body type, you’ll find lots of style guides for body shapes and other helpful fashion tips in the blog section.  


How To Dress Apple Body Shape 


When we put together outfits, we like to highlight our best features and draw attention away from other parts of our bodies. With apple shapes, highlighting your bust and legs is sure to turn heads and make you feel fabulous. This means v-necks, structured tops, embellished necklines, tunics, and wrap tops are perfect for balancing your figure. You can find lots of these styles of the best tops for apple shapes in the fashion tops section. 


It also means avoiding skinny jeans and high-waisted jeans that will make your torso look larger. Bootcut jeans, straight-leg jeans, wide-leg jeans, and flared jeans are perfect for your slim legs and help to balance out your bust with your legs.

The best apple-shaped body jeans are those with a wide-leg style. Trouser jeans, wide-leg jeans, flares, and boyfriend jeans are all great options. The relaxed fit of wide and straight-leg pants are the most flattering jeans for your apple body shape. You’ll find a wide selection of flattering jeans for the apple body shape in our denim collection


Finding a great pair of jeans that flatters your body is a necessary staple for every closet. They are truly so versatile, comfortable, and fashionable. It’s easy to dress denim up or down depending on the occasion and Democracy has a wide variety of options so you can find your next favorite pair of denim that perfectly fits your figure.  


Best Jeans For Apple Plus Size 


Finding the best plus-size jeans for apple-shaped figures falls under a lot of the same principles as general apple shapes. This means wide-leg, flared, bootcut, and jeans that are less fitted through the leg will flatter your best features. For plus sizes, it helps to have extra support through the tummy and hips so that you feel supported in your jeans.  


The Absolution denim from Democracy clothing provides just what apple plus size figures need. The inner mesh lining of the Absolution denim provides tummy tuck control and smoothing of the curves throughout the waist and hips. They also give a great life to the booty. With this, you get the look and style of fashionable denim in the most flattering cuts with the bonus of comfort and support.  


Best Jeans For Tall Apple Body Shape 


Having some extra height is a great asset when it comes to styling. When it comes to denim, you can work with so many different options. Apple shapes naturally tend to have great legs and when you add height to that, you get a great asset to show off in your outfits. You’ll want to stick with wider legs or flare jeans to offset a larger torso but you can also incorporate some cropped skinny jeans or ankle-length denim to show off your slim legs.  


Best Jeans For Short Apple Body Shape 


Bootcut and flare jeans are perfect denim for apple-body-shaped women who are on the shorter side when it comes to height. You’ll want to avoid cropped or short jeans to avoid making your legs appear shorter. Shorter women with an apple body shape can even try some skinny jeans to show off their legs but they won’t get the same balancing effect that comes with wider-legged denim.  


How To Style Your Jeans

Styling denim is so fun and versatile. You can pair your denim with silky blouses, wrap tops, v-necks, and embellished necklines to highlight an ample bust without hanging too tightly around the tummy.


Feel free to have fun with pattern tops to pair with your figure-flattering jeans. The main goal with apple-shaped outfits is to balance a larger torso with slender legs so bring attention to your busts and legs to balance out the midsection. Most importantly, have fun putting together comfortable and stylish outfits!
