Sexy bodies come in many shapes and sizes. If you have a relatively small upper body and large hips, thighs and butt, you're a triangle -- or pear-- shape. Famous ladies with bootylicious figures include Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce and Shakira. Dress to flatter your gorgeous figure to help you feel more confident in your body so you can shake it to the max. Find your most fabulous jeans and rock them day and night for jaw-dropping curves.


Jeans, like women, come in different shapes and sizes. To show off what you've got, choose a flared leg to help balance the width of your hips and butt. If your style is more conservative, stick with a slight flare or try boot-cut jeans. If you're a funky fashionista, rock a wide, kick-flare leg that screams '70s. Pair your jeans with a fitted top, and make sure your jeans are tight through the knee to slim your thighs and give you a to-die-for shape. Another way to go is to pair slim-cut or skinny jeans with a longer top that covers your butt -- to show off your legs without drawing attention to your hips.


Light-wash jeans have a vintage quality, but they can actually make you look bigger. Stick with dark-wash jeans, or go for a cute black pair to make your bottom half appear slimmer. Wear dark jeans with a patterned top, which will help balance your shape and give you an hourglass appearance. If you're looking for something a little more casual, go for dark jeans with fading down the front center of the thigh. This crafty fading trick makes your legs look slimmer and longer, so you can hit the town with pride and confidence.


The right pockets can take your rear end from so-so to enviable. Small back pockets actually make your caboose look larger because they draw attention to the size, rather than the shape, of your cheeks. Go for large back pockets to minimize the size of your booty. Rather than noticing the size of your bottom half, people will notice that it looks curvy and delicious. For front pockets, choose small ones that will offset the width of your hips.


The most important part of choosing flattering jeans is to make sure that they fit you well. Grab any jeans you think will work and head to the fitting room. You'll be surprised; often jeans you think will work actually give you muffin top, and jeans you're not sure about on the hanger end up making you look sexy and sophisticated. Some jeans manufacturers have special lines for curvy ladies, so try them on to see whether they work with your sexy lower half.
