Together with our style gurus, we’ve put together this comprehensive guide on how to find the ideal fit for women’s pants, with tips on how to choose the right fabrics and style for your body shape. So, get ready to kiss those ill-fitting pants goodbye and say hello to a whole new level of comfort and confidence!
What are Full Length Women's Pants?
Before we get started, let’s first clarify what ‘full length’ means. Extending from the waist down to the ankles, full length jeans provide complete coverage for the legs. These pants come in various styles, such as straight-leg, bootcut, wide-leg, and skinny jeans, offering a range of options for different preferences and occasions. Womens full length pants are a wardrobe staple, and the right pair can offer the flexibility to create a number of fashionable outfits.
Finding the Perfect Fit
To find those elusive jeans that fit perfectly, there’s a few things you’ll need to consider. It’s important to explore different styles, have an understanding of your body shape, and take accurate measurements of your waist, hips, and inseam.
Understanding Your Body Shape
The first step in finding the perfect pants is to determine your body shape. There are four main types:
- Pear-shaped figures, where the hips are wider than the bust, should opt for pants that balance the proportions. Look for styles with a slightly wider leg or bootcut to create balance and draw attention upwards.
- Apple-shaped bodies, with weight carried around the midsection, benefit from pants with a higher rise that sits comfortably at the waist. Straight legs can also help to create a streamlined look.
- Hourglass figures have well-defined waists, which can be accentuated with high-waisted pants and flared legs. Opt for styles that have a bit of stretch to ensure a comfortable fit around the hips.
- Rectangle or ‘noodle’ shaped bodies, where the bust, waist, and hips have similar measurements, can experiment with various styles. Choose pants that create the illusion of curves, such as those with pleats or details at the hips, and wide legs.
Measuring Your Body
Every girl should know her measurements. Sizing can vary between brands and even between individual products, so accurate measurements will allow you to find the best fit, particularly when shopping for pants online.
Take out your trusty measuring tape and make sure you’re wearing snug-fitting clothing. Measure your waist at the narrowest part, typically above the belly button, and the widest part of your hips (approximately 20 cm below your waist). For the inseam, measure from the top of your inner thigh down to your ankle. It's also helpful to measure the rise by starting at the front waistline and bringing the tape measure between your legs to the back waistline.
Choosing the Right Fabric
At the core of comfort and style is fabric choice. Consider the occasion and the desired level of stretch and breathability. At Freddy, our jeans come in a range of fabrics. Faux leather provides a sleek and edgy look that’s perfect for a night out, while our WR.UP® denim and extra comfy stretchy pants are versatile options for everyday wear. Our cotton pants are lightweight and breathable, ideal for warmer weather.
When selecting a fabric, you’ll also want to consider durability and care requirements. Understanding the different options will allow you to choose pants that not only fit well, but also align with your style and practical preferences.
Selecting the Right Style
Now for the fun part - choosing your favourite style. To find the style/s that flatters your figure and reflects your personal flair, it’s best to spend time experimenting. At Freddy, we have a range of styles to suit all aesthetics, shapes, and sizes, including skinny, bootcut, cropped, and flare pants in low rise, mid rise, and high rise, and available in a range of colours. Go ahead and explore our online catalogue for some serious style inspiration. And remember - finding your perfect style is about embracing what makes you feel confident and fabulous.
Caring for Your Pants
Proper care is essential to keep your pants looking great and prolong their lifespan. Make sure you read and follow the care instructions, as different fabrics may have specific requirements. Generally speaking, you should wash your pants inside out in cold water and avoid using harsh detergents or bleach. Air drying or using a low heat setting in the dryer can prevent shrinking or damage. To maintain their shape, avoid excessive stretching or hanging by the waistband.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the tall rise in women's pants?
Tall rise, also known as high rise, refers to the placement of the waistband, which sits above the natural waistline and provides extended coverage. This creates a visually elongated appearance that flatters a range of body shapes by defining the waist.
How tall is too tall for regular women's pants?
Tall pants for women may be too long for some, but this largely depends on individual preferences and body proportions. Generally, if the length of your pants exceeds your height to the point where excessive bunching or dragging occurs at the ankles, it may be too tall. However, some individuals prefer a longer, more relaxed fit. Ultimately, it's about finding a length that is comfortable, visually appealing, and suits your personal style.
What are girls’ pants called that aren't full length?
Pants that are shorter than full length can include 7/8 pants or cropped pants. Capri pants typically extend to just above the ankle, while cropped pants are mid-calf length. These shorter length pants are popular for warmer weather or a casual aesthetic.
