What’s the best rise for someone with a little extra in the middle?
If you carry extra weight in the middle, then a low rise pant isn’t the best choice because it shortens the leg and makes your midsection appear wider.
Stick with a higher rise and remember to fit the largest part of your body and alter the rest.
For example, if your waist is larger than your hips, buy pants that fit your waist and then have the hips taken in.

Follow these tips to get the best pants that fit your body shape.
If you are PETITE (5’4″ or under), try a trimmed crop pant, or a pant with a vertical crease down the front and back which makes legs appear longer. Compression fabrics tend to slim the leg and give you some height as well.
For our ladies with FULL HIPS and thighs, we suggest a pant where the cut falls down from the widest part of the thigh for a flattering fit. A slight bootcut or straight leg (not skinny) will help your curves look less wide.
If you have a TUMMY, try a straight leg pant and find one that sits neatly at your waist. A pull on pant with tummy control is helpful too. Avoid pleats or baggy cuts which bring attention to your midriff.
TALL women can carry off a fabulous flare pant. Palazzo pants work well with height too.
Lastly, if your waist is much smaller than your hips and your backside appears bigger than the rest of your frame, fit your bum and take in the waist. Save waist alterations by trying the Flatter Me Belt!
