I have my Latin mother to thank or throttle, depending on my mood for my wide hips. As much as I embrace the body I have, the truth is finding the right jeans to flatter those Shakira-feeling hips can often be tough. No jean button will come close to my belly button.

Another handy tip: Watch for where fading is placed.
