If you can make your waist appear smaller, you butt will look larger by comparison, and give you a sexy hourglass curve.

Corsets, bodysuits, a snug top that keeps everything together, whatever you have in your closet that slims your waist, wear that with jeans to help your butt appear larger.

Butt lifters, “Booty Bra” Bum Shaper – OK, I am going to be honest. Butt lifters look a little weird, like a cross between thong underwear, shorts, and nylons.

These actually have two openings in the back from which your butt cheeks protrude. They sit under each cheek hemisphere, lifting and elevating each one up and back.

These work fantastically, and are quite possibly the silver bullet for making your booty look on fleek.

Bonus Tip: Some butt lifter designs double as a waist slimmer by adding a wide, tummy-slimming panel at the top. If you are going to purchase a pair, look for this style.

How to make your bum look bigger in skinny jeans

Be careful with skinny jeans. Look for skinnys that are designed for curvy girls and have ample yardage in the back, at least mid-rise to high waist style.

Choose skinnys with a lot of stretch to accommodate curves.

Scout out skinny jeans with smaller pockets that sit high up and angle inward to highlight your bum.

Skinnys can be a challenge, but a carefully selected pair of skinny jeans can have you going from hatchback to extra cargo space in no time.

How to make your bum look bigger in jeans using high heels

Wear High Heels.

2.5” to 3” or higher is ideal.

High heels practically demand booty-enhancing posture. The height in back naturally pushes your chest forward, curves your spine, and lifts your bum. Plus, it gives a sexy shape to your calves.

This is probably one of the easiest ways to a more shapely rear in jeans.

How to make your butt look good in jeans for your Instagram Selfie

Sending a picture to your man? Showing off your latest denim haul? Just want more likes? We can relate!

If you want your picture to showcase your best ASSet, follow these steps.

  1. Suck in your tummy
  2. Stand up straight
  3. Push your chest out
  4. User your lower back muscles to curve your back, arching your bum up and back
  5. Place your weight on one hip and point that hip towards the camera. Pretend your navel is at 12 o’clock and your side is at 3 o’clock. You want the hip to face the camera at about 4 o’clock, so both cheeks are visible in the shot, yet it is still a “side” shot
  6. Slightly bend the knee of the leg that is not facing the camera. The idea is to make your legs appear as narrow as possible, accentuating your booty
  7. Take a selfie. Post. Sit back and wait for the likes to parade in

How to choose jeans that make your bum look good

Check your Pockets!

Jean pockets play a vital role in butt shape and appearance, so getting the pockets right is critical. Pockets draw attention and focus to the bum.

Choose pants with pockets that are placed high and wide. Pockets too close together narrow the backside, and low pockets give the appearance of a saggy bottom. Not a good look!

Look for a good angle. Pockets placed at an angle accentuate the booty and make it appear round and bootylicious.

Size Matters. 

“The smaller the pocket, the bigger the booty will appear.” ~ Ancient Buttist Proverb

So….look for jeans with little pockets that sit at the outermost point of the bum, for the appearance of a perfect apple bottom.

Mid-Rise or High Waist Jeans? – Mid-rise is good for some body types, especially if you are thin, and have a flat or non-existent butt. High waist jeans might make your butt look worse if you don’t have enough cargo in your trunk.

If you do have an ample backside and are looking to shape and lift, you may benefit from high waist jeans, which have more fabric to accommodate those blessed with booty.

One thing is certain: avoid low rise if you are trying to maximize the butt.

Rounded yolk seam – The yolk is the fabric of the jeans that sit above your butt. If the bottom seam of the yolk is straight, it flattens and minimizes the butt. If the yolk has a curved seam, it gives a rounded, bootylicious, bubble-butt look.

Light Colors – Dark colors minimize, while lighter colors accentuate and draw the eye. If you want to maximize your gluteus maximus, choose white, beige, or any other light color to get the job done.

Pro Tip: The whole “light colors/dark colors” works for choosing a top to go with them jeans, too! To minimize and slim the waist, wear black or dark on the waist.

Small Waist – Jeans that come up in a “V” shape around the hips give the waist a smaller appearance.
