8 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, our primary goal is to 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.  

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).

Looking for a way to make the whole jean shopping process WAY easier?

That’s where Revelle comes in. When you join — which, BTW, doesn’t cost you anything — we’ll ask you a few questions about your beautiful body. From there, we work our magic (and by magic, we mean technology) to build your personal store. As you like (heart) and dislike (broken heart) jeans, we’ll get to know your tastes, preferences, and style even better so you can find your perfect pair.

Normally, when it comes to jeans that accentuate the backside, you want to stay away from a dramatic flare/wide leg since it lengthens the legs and draws attention away from the bum. But this pair from Everlane has just a subtle kick-flare around the ankle, which is perfect. It’s made with a touch of stretch denim, and the back pockets sit up nice and high.

TikTok‘s trying to tell us that skinny jeans are dead?! PUHHLEASE. These super flattering jeans have a high elasticity rate, meaning they strike the perfect balance between form-fitting and comfortable. Plus, see how deep that yoke is?! (Such a weird word, we know.) In a world with the perfect pair of jeans, these are high up on the list.

These super skinny, high-waisted jeans will hold and accentuate your shape with the help of  Levi’s® Sculpt Hyperstretch material. It’s sturdy but won’t stretch out, which means you won’t be left with a baggy fit at the end of a long day.

Founded by celebs Khloé Kardashian and Emma Grede, Good American’s motto is that “fashion should be made to fit women, not the other way around.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. This summery white skinny jean (available at Nordstrom)  sits high up on the waist and just grazes the ankles. The contoured waistband will help accentuate your backside and move with you throughout the day for ultimate comfort and versatility.

Your plain ‘ol stretch denim doesn’t stand a chance against these *extra* stretchy, form-fitting jeans from J Brand. Although there isn’t a yoke, we had to include ‘em on the list for their sleek triple-button closure, gold-tone hardware, and skinny-leg silhouette.

This classic bootcut is made with exclusive Lift-Tuck Technology that helps flatten the tummy and lift the rear. The high pockets and deep yoke don’t hurt either. Because they stretch with wear, we recommend ordering one size down for the perfect fit.

Talk about a throwback. This pair — which channels the 90s with its heavyweight denim, extra high rise, and laid-back comfy feel — also happens to be one of our favorite butt-lifting jeans.

These jeans have it all: high pockets, deep V, high rise, skinny styling. They’re a wardrobe essential that’ll make your butt look fab, if we do say so ourselves.
