The Reviews Don't Lie: These Sculpting Jeans Will Make Your Butt Look Great

There’s nothing like putting on a pair of amazing jeans that instantly transforms your look and boosts your confidence. But we know all too well that with so many styles, fits, and fabrics out there, finding the perfect pair of jeans that flatters your figure, contours your assets, and fits like a glove is not always an easy feat. Taking a few features into account can help when shopping for your body type and fit preference. Two style details to consider are the position of the back pockets and the design of the yoke. (The yoke is the V-shaped section at the back of the jeans that gives denim a curved seat. Typically, the deeper the V, the more shapelier your bum will look.)

Luckily, when it comes to finding the butt-lifting jeans of your dreams, we’ve done some of the hard work for you. We looked at the top reviews and positive feedback of sculpting jeans from a plethora of retailers to bring you the 24 best out there. Scroll below to find your perfect pair, and see what reviewers say about them.

Rating: 4.9/5 stars

Customer Review: "I am 5'1, around 106 lbs with a small waist and wider hips, bum, thighs, and these fit great in a size 26. It also tapers at the ankles which I love but because I am short, I do have to roll the hem up a couple of times. Levi's quality is top notch (they wash super well) and I am a fan of the button fly front. These are high-waisted on my petite frame, though the waistband rests right around my belly button so not quite at my true waist. I'd buy all colors of the wedgie style jeans if i could; they are perfect for us pear-shaped gals." — Shopbop reviewer

Customer Review: "I love these jeans! They are so comfortable and cute. I love the cigarette cut, and the back pocket placement makes your butt look great!" — Nordstrom reviewer

Rating: 5/5 stars

Customer Review: "I think this is the closest I’ve ever been to having my ideal fit in a pair of jeans! I have a small waist and an athletic lower half, so I have never been able to find a pair of straight-leg jeans that didn’t cling to my calves and ruin the look, or flatten my butt (or more often, both). This style has plenty of room in the butt and hips, and the flare at the bottom keeps the leg wide enough to clear even my meaty calves." — Madewell reviewer

Rating: 4.6/5 Stars

Customer Review: "Get ready for the butt compliments! The fit is absolutely pristine. It's the perfect amount of compression to smooth everything out, the rise hits at the perfect spot, and the pocket placement and size really does wonders for your butt. I cannot say enough great things about these jeans." — Madewell reviewer

Style Tip: Show off your butt-lifting jeans by pairing them with a chic cropped blouse.

Customer Review: "These pants are the bomb. I've been looking for a curvy version of these classy timeless jeans in this color. They nailed it with the cut, fit and wash, as all are very flattering." — Madewell reviewer

Rating: 4.2/5 Stars

Customer Review: "One of the most beautiful jeans I have ever purchased! The price definitely reflects the quality of this piece. The denim is soft and stretchy and hugs my curves. I also love the way these fit so much." — Nordstrom reviewer

Rating: 4.8/5 Stars

Customer Review: "I lift weights 3-5 days a week. I have for over a year now, and I have the thighs and butt to prove it (which is great), but try looking for pants that fit. I’m also 6’ tall which further complicates things. However, since finding the Madewell curvy line, I’ve been in denim heaven. These jeans are particularly beautiful— the waist is flattering and my butt isn’t squished flat. My thighs and calves fit without leaving indentions along where the seams lie, despite the fact that they’re skinny jeans. I love the weight of the denim. They’ll be great for fall and winter,  plus the color is beautiful." — Madewell reviewer

Rating: 4.5/5 Stars

Customer Review: "These jeans are the absolute BEST. Buttery soft, they hold you in, have the perfect amount of stretch to them, and take any outfit up a notch. I tried them on in-store, but they didn't have my inseam. I went ahead and ordered online because I knew I had to have them! Buy these jeans! Flattering for any body type, as they mold to you throughout the day. Love, love, love." — jrcamp

Customer Review: "The perfect shape. I love these jeans. They fit my hourglass shape like a glove. I'm 5'1 so I bought them in Petite because regular jeans are always too long for me, but these are a bit shorter than I expected (about 4 inches above my ankles). Other than that they're perfectly stretchy and comfy." — Shakti

Rating: 4.5/5 Stars

Customer Review: "These jeans are the perfect fit. They hug nicely in all the right areas of the body, they accentuate and compliment ones natural shape very nicely. I have a somewhat pear shape to my body so the high-waist complements my curves beautifully as well. They are super comfortable and have a stretch like quality to them. The distress denim gives you the ability to play a lot with your looks. These are officially my new favorite jeans." — H&M customer

Rating: 4.8/5 Stars

Customer Review: "These are great jeans for work or going out. They have the right amount of structure and spandex, and are not too stretchy or too rigid. They're a nice deep indigo that is perfect for the office. " — Nordstrom reviewer

Rating: 4.5/5 Stars

Customer Review: "Best pair of pants I have purchased in years! They fit perfectly from top to bottom. The material is strong and the color is rich and gorgeous. I haven't found a pair of pants that had it all in so many years I could cry. Also they're very flattering which is a great confidence booster. I have bought one pair in each color so far." — MJ

Customer Review: "These jeans are amazing! I have a really hard time finding jeans that fit right (as I’m sure many of you do too), and these are perfect for me! I’m a size 18 (230lbs, 5’5”) and always have trouble getting pants that fit my waist but then aren’t too big in my legs.The waistband stretches just a little while wearing and the legs don’t get all loosey-goosey—providing me with the perfect jean. I Bought two pairs of these because I love them so much, and I get lots of compliments on them! You won’t regret purchasing these pants!" — Courtney M

Rating: 4.3/5 Stars

Customer Review: "These jeans are stretchy and comfortable! They’re a little long (I’m 5’4) but since Wit & Wisdom jeans tend to shrink a little in the wash I don’t think I need to hem them. I would wear these every day. They’re flattering and a perfect fit around the waist." — Nordstrom reviewer
