7 Best Butt-Shaping Jeans

If sculpting jeans that create the illusion of a rounder butt will make you feel more beautiful, we’re all for it. Time to get cheeky!

Here at Revelle, we help women find clothes that fit the way THEY want them to. That’s why, whenever we talk about the best jeans for tummy control or petite women or athletic thighs & calves or, in this case, flatter backsides, it’s important to remember that style is SO personal. If a sculpting pair of jeans that creates the illusion of a rounder butt will make you feel more beautiful, we’re all for it.

What we DON’T want to do is reinforce reductive generalizations about arbitrary standards of beauty. In other words, there’s nothing about a flat butt or athletic thighs or petite frame that needs to be “fixed.” We’re just here to help you feel the most at home in your body — whatever that might mean.  

Part of Revelle’s purpose is to dismantle the labels we use to talk about women’s bodies and help you realize that your body is absolutely beautiful just the way it is. How are we fulfilling that purpose, you ask? By becoming your go-to denim EXPERTS. Revelle knows everything about jeans so you don’t have to. We’re here to help you find a pair that will fit you perfectly (the first time you try them on!).  

What Types Of Jeans To Look For:

Now that we’ve established that, let’s talk jeans and, ahem, butts. If that’s something you’re hoping to accentuate with a little help from denim, here’s what to look out for:

  • Back pockets that sit higher up
    Strategic pocket placement can help create the illusion of a lifted bum. 
  • Deep V-shaped “yoke”
    The yoke is a fancy word to describe the part of your jeans in the back just below the waistband — essentially right where your butt goes. It can range from a deep to a shallow V, to no yoke at all. But in order to accentuate curves, you want a deeper depth. 
  • High-rise/high-waist jeans
    That’s not to say that mid-rise or low-rise are forever off the table, but when the jeans sit higher up, they hug you better around the waist and hip area to give that beautiful booty a lift. 
  • Super skinny jeans
    There’s skinny jeans, then there’s what’s called “super skinny,” which fit just a little bit tighter to accentuate your backside — just like leggings would. 
  • Sculpting/lifting technology
    Certain brands use specialized denim that works double duty to lift and sculpt in order to lend the impression of a rounder derriere (more on that below).
