|Rise and Length|
These two characteristics are as important to how well your denim accentuates your unique body shape as the Fit.
Length can be adapted with alterations on a regular length jean, but ideally the jean should stop exactly where the designer intended. Rise however is the number one factor in that perfect fit.
Most premium denim is going to be cut at up to 30” for skinny and slim fits, 34” in length for a straight and boot cut, and even longer for a flare. At Liquid BLUE we regularly alter jeans in length, but it is also important an original hem alteration is used wherever possible to preserve the look of the style.
Rise is defined as the length of the fabric in between your waistband and the inseam of your jeans.
Low Rise: Low rise are designed to sit a few inches below the belly button and directly on the waist. Low rise can often flatten a rounder bottom. They fit snugly around the belly and are the most difficult rise to wear if you have a rounder stomach. If you have great abs or stomach area that you like to show off, go low rise, just make sure your shirt is the right length, so nothing is unexpectedly exposed when you sit down.
Mid Rise: Sitting at the hips, and about 1” inch above the belly button, mid rise is very easy for many body shapes and both men and women to wear. A very trendy look can be achieved with a very comfortable snug fit. Mid rises vary, so make sure the height is right for you. Mid rise usually work well for a curvy bottom as the waistband generally sits on the curve of the back.
High Rise: These are not your mom or dads jeans, so don’t be fooled. A very trendy and comfortable fit can be achieved for the fuller waisted and also the very slim. Make sure you are in the right size and team with an awesome shirt for a flattering look.
