Finally, These Denim Shorts Won't Make You Look Like You're Wearing A Diaper (& They'll Make Your Butt Look SO Good)

I hate when someone asks me to name my best feature or say what I love most about myself. I guess I’m referring to those annoying AF ice breaker activities our employers force us to do that make us feel like we’re still in like, kindergarten. Instead of saying, “I guess I like my eyes,” what I ‘d really like to say is that I love my stone cold heart and chronic resting bitch face. And, I am pretty proud of myself for surviving flat ass syndrome too.

I know many of you are not as lucky as me (obviously). Some of you probably do an overly intense daily squat routine, or simply settle with wearing saggy pants (which is not okay). If you’re fed up with exerting energy (that can be better used scrolling TikTok) at the gym, and you’re sick of your bodycon dresses looking like shift dresses, buy some of these butt-lifting shorts for a J. Lo booty. You probably won’t break the internet by trying to balance a glass of Champagne on your ass, but you can change your Insta bio to Miss New Booty—which is clearly the better option. Ahead, shop for the best denim shorts that A) don’t look like a fucking diaper and B) will make your butt look just like (or better than) the peach emoji. 🍑

Superdown’s affordable denim

Kathleen Denim Short

Revolve’s little sis, Superdown, offers more affordable styles across the site, denim shorts included. These cutoffs will not only graze the bottom of your cheeks perfectly, they’re also stretchy and help make it look super plump.

Ripped and ready

OFLUCK Women's High-Waisted Frayed Raw Hem Denim Shorts

Pay attention to the washes and cuts of denim shorts to find a pair that best suits your booty. This style is created individually, each with a unique vintage wash that serves the same purpose as contouring your ass. If you really want to highlight your cheeks—not the ones on your face—go for a cheeky cut that angles just enough to give a sneak peak.

Curve Love shorts

Curve Love High Rise Mom Short

The lighter the color, the more flattering they are for emphasizing your bum. These shorts are at a perfect high-rise to accentuate your waist and give you an hourglass shape. The uneven hem in the front and the back elongates your legs so people think your butt is held by more material, therefore looking bigger than it really is. Plus, they stretch so the more you can chug at the bar, the merrier.

Extra short & cheeky

Gap High Rise Cheeky Shorts

Want them super short? These 11-inch shorts have got you and your butt (almost) covered. They’re cut right above the hips, so you butt looks extra good at every single angle. As for the stretch, it’s minimal, so just make sure to stick true to size, or size up if you don’t want them to be too snug.

Madewell’s curvy high-rise shorts

Curvy High-Rise Denim Shorts in Lunar Wash

Denim shorts that have a flexible hem look best when they’re folded. Fold at an angle, with the longest edge going towards your inner thigh. The cuffed hem on these shorts cup your butt a little tighter and push your butt up just enough so it looks perky and firm. Bubble butt, here you come.

That extra good curve

Good Curve Denim Shorts

I’m kind of convinced Khloé Kardashian has some sort of potion in her line of denim that makes your ass look like you just did 1,000 squats overnight. They’re fucking magical, I tell you. The length of these shorts shows off your long legs, while the material hugs your waist in just the right places to make your butt look fuller.

Another Amazon fave

Floerns Raw Hem High Waist Denim Shorts

Amazon’s got it all when it comes to the clothing department, and one of its most-loved brands, Floerns, has the denim shorts of your booty’s dreams. These are super high-rise, and pair well with everything from a white tee to a fancier top for a night out. Not into this light wash? You can score these in three different shades of blue, or get a pair in black, white, or grey.

Classic Levi’s

Levi's Women's Premium 501 Original Shorts

Can you really ever go wrong with Levi’s? It’s almost like all of its denim is designed to make your butt look the best it ever has. These are the OG denim shorts, made with cotton for a nice stretch and molding your hips and backside. The 501’s are also available to buy in several different colors and plus sizes.
