High-waisted Trousers

High-Waisted Trousers 

A high-rise or high-waisted garment is one designed to sit high on, or above, the wearer's hips, usually at least 8 centimetres (3 inches) higher than the navel. In western cultures, high-rise jeans were especially common in the 1970s, in competition with low-rise pants.

High-waisted trousers are easily the most flattering. ... Simply put they make everyone's bottom, regardless of shape and size, look great, thanks to that waist-hugging and lengthening thing they do by just being cut a little longer than hipster-style trousers.

PETITE. When you have a petite build, high-waisted denim can give the illusion of height. ...

PEAR. If you carry your weight in your hips, thighs and rear, you're a pear-shaped woman. ...

TALL. ...

CURVY. ...

ATHLETIC. ...

APPLE. ...

HOURGLASS.

In western culture, high-waisted pants tend to have long zippers, ranging from about 7-10 inches long, and leave the navel either completely covered or barely shown. Zipper lengths are not to be confused with rises. High-waisted pants have rises typically 10 inches long or longer.

In European menswear, pants sat level with the navel until the 1950s, and were held up by a pair of suspenders. During the 1940s, Zoot suiters wore pants with a waistband so high that they often reached the chest.
