The truth about your butt in leggings and how to fix it
I know you want to look good in those new leggings you decided to buy after watching a Tik Tok video, but I have some bad news. They're not flattering on everyone. If you're one of the unlucky ones with a flat butt or a booty that just looks like a big mass there are a few things you need to do before throwing them in the back of your closet for another year. Today we'll talk about what's going wrong and how to fix it!
You've seen those scrunch butt pants on Tik Tok and Instagram, but they never seem to work for your shape. The girls in these videos always appear as if their behind is perfectly round like an apple - not a sack of potatoes! What's going on?
They work by lifting portions of your butt and creating an illusion. But you have to help the illusion along if you want to highlight your ASSets.
- Go for a legging with a higher and longer waistband. This will essentially create an "instant tummy tuck" effect that holds you in. It also smooths out any rolls on your lower back, making it appear as if the fat is simply sucked away from them entirely.
- Here's the biggest tip we discovered. Wear a thong or go commando. The darting in the fabric needs to hug your curves, not your underwear. Trust us. Take a photo of your derrière in these leggings with and without underwear. You'll be shocked at the difference between the two.
- Improve your squat game. The best way to get a better looking butt is to actually put in the work. Plus, you'll look great at any pool or beach in a swimsuit. You should be squatting every day, and not just on the days you're going to wear your bikini or shorts! Squats are one of the best exercises because they hit all major muscle groups in your legs at once: hamstrings, glutes (or butt), quadriceps, calves.
