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 squat routine everyday, 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.

The Perfect Fit Shorts

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.

Jimmy Jimmy Short

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.

Corelida Short

Even if they’re not denim, find a pair of shorts with an intricate design throughout. Plus, the ruffle is an added bum-booster. Add them to your vacay wardrobe for a pop of color with a neutral flirty top. People will probably get lost in a trance staring at you as you strut your stuff. They can look, but they can’t touch.

Wrangler Cheeky Denim Short

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.

Bombshell 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.
