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

Rating: 5/5 stars. 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: “So flattering! I love these jeans! The curvy stovepipe really is the perfect straight-leg jeans. They are still fitted in the legs, but balance out my bigger bum and hips nicely by making everything look “straight” while still accentuating my waist.” — Madewell reviewer

Rating: 4.8/5 Stars. Customer Review: “These jeans fit so well. They are comfy, and come up high enough for a little belly control. After each wear they get comfier without losing shape. Highly recommend.” — Madewell reviewer

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

Rating: 4.6/5 Stars. 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: 4.3/5 Stars. Customer Review: “These jeans fit me perfectly and are a lot more comfortable than I expected given that they have no stretch to them. They are classic, button fly, structured jeans. I’m 5’4″ and they hit perfect above the ankle. The extra high-rise and ‘butt booster’ really delivers!” — Everlane reviewer

Style Tip: A trending backless top will draw more attention to your assets.

Rating: 4.5/5 Stars. Customer Review: “Amazing fit! These jeans fit me perfectly. It’s difficult for me to find good fitting jeans with a slim waist and very curvy hip area, but these jeans delivered.” — Gap Reviewer

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: 4.3/5 Stars. Customer Review: “These are the perfect black jeans I’ve been searching for with a high waist that’s not too high. They fit so good on the butt. ” — 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

Style Tip: You can never go wrong with a basic white tee and high-waisted denim.

Rating: 4.2/5 Stars. Customer Review: “I love these jeans. They have really flat pockets, and it really compliments your body! They are so comfortable and super cute. I am a tall girl at 6 ft and I got these in tall and they fit so well!” — Gap reviewer

Rating: 4.8/5 Stars. Customer Review: “I’ve been searching for a pair of jeans like this forever and almost didn’t buy them because of the price, but I’m so glad I did! I sized down like recommended and they fit perfectly! I absolutely love these! You won’t regret it!” — Nordstrom reviewer

Rating: 4.8/5 Stars. Customer Review: “These jeans are so incredibly flattering and hold their shape. A lot of other denim I own seems fine but then completely loose their shape after a few hours—not these! They look amazing and make my waist look so tiny.” — Favorite Daughter reviewer

Rating: 4.2/5 Stars. Customer Review: “The jeans are wonderful with great fabric, cut, and sizing.” — Anthropologie Reviewer

Rating: 4.6/5 Stars. Customer Review: “I m 5’8 155-160 lbs with a big bottom and thicker thighs & these jeans fit like a glove. I’ve worn them several times since I got them and they loosened a little but they still fit perfectly. Size down one.” — Revolve reviewer

Style Tip: For a relaxed date-night look, add a fanciful off-the-shoulder top to a pair of butt-framing rigid denim. 

Rating: 4.4/5 Stars. Customer Review: “Those are fantastic jeans. Very soft and comfortable. They make your bum look so sexy. Highly recommend.” — Levi’s reviewer

Rating: 5/5 Stars. Customer Review: “Great material and great quality. Love them so much—they look really flattering on me.” — Shopbop reviewer

Rating: 4.6/5 Stars. Customer Review: “Really comfortable and a nice fit. I have been searching for a pair of wide leg jeans that aren’t too wide, and these were perfect.” — Abercrombie & Fitch Reviewer

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

Style Tip: For a head-to-toe sculpted look, style your jeans with a fitted second-skin top.

Rating: 4.8/5 Stars. Customer Review: “Definitely loving these new jeans. I love the super high waist and they feel soft and lived-in straight out of the box.” — Nordstrom reviewer
