low-rise jeans


Halloween might be done and dusted but a genuine chill of fear rippled through me when I read these next three words: low rise jeans.

I mean, if you're JLo circa 2002 then by all means, don't let my frustration and seething envy stand in your way.

But if you're like the majority of us and feel quite at home in your go-to high-waisted jeans, then this may not be the best news.

We have a lot to thank the early 2000’s for – Paris and Nicole’s iconic friendship, Britney being Britney and Xtina’s Stripped album.

Low rise jeans or bumsters are what we try and forget ever happened in the early 2000’s – but word is that they are making a comeback.

The runways are our glimpse into the fashion world an the trends to come and they have been showing a lot of low slung jeans – were talking full on hip-grazing designs.

It was Alyx’s Matthew Williams June  fashion show where a few trousers dipped suspiciously below the navel.

And in the women’s wear shows? Chanel, Courrèges, Versace followed suit, to name only a few.

What is happening?!

It seems that people are feeling our pain about this re-apparoaching trend, just look at some of these gas tweets.

So, why is it happening?

Is a nostalgia thing? Are we so wrapped up in our obsession of times gone by that were looking at ugly trends through rose-tinted glasses?

Are we romanticising Britney’s 2001 “Slave 4 U” snakeskin thong worn over leather pants?

Or Christina Aguilera’s lace-up low riders on the Stripped album cover?

I think we just might be tbh.

And speaking for myself, Ill be sticking to my trusty mom jeans.

Flattering? Maybe not? Do I freeze my arse off? I do not.

And that’s a win in my book, so you can keep your low-risers, thank you very much.



If you want your bum to look nice in jeans, you don’t really need to have a lot of junk in your trunk. Anyone with a bit of know-how can find a pair that will make their bum look fabulous!

Here are a few tips to make your bum look SHEmazing!

Choose skinny jeans over flares
Flared jeans overpower the frame of your body and make your bum look smaller than it is.

Always go for low-rise jeans
If the rise on your jeans is too high it will only make your bum look longer, flatter and not so sexy.

Pockets, pockets, pockets
This is key (especially if you don’t have much of a backside). Jeans with back pockets help pump up your behind. In fact, the higher the pockets, the better.

Avoid dark colors
Dark colors don’t show the definition of your body, so for a sexier bum, choose lighter colored jeans.

Know your size
Don’t get one size too small or one size too big. With jeans, the perfect fit is the best fit.
