Levi Strauss & Co will introduce a new line of jeans next month for curvaceous women in the US, called Levi's Curvy Cut Boot 528.

The new jean is specially designed with a smaller waist and room at the hips to "accommodate and hug" a woman's curves. The new jean will be available nationwide in June.

Levi's said its jeans are designed to eliminate the "gaping" many women experience in the back waistline of their jeans. They have a lowrise waist in the front, and are slightly higher in the back to hug curves and ensure a flattering silhouette, the company explained.

"This new curvy jean is for a woman who is more curvaceous and is looking for a great stylish jean to hug her curves," said Janine Chilton-Faust, Levi's brand vice president of design.

"The introduction comes on the heels of our incredibly successful launch of the Perfectly Slimming 512 jean designed with a proprietary feature to give women gentle flatting in the belly area."
