If you thought that shapewear was mainly made to manage your midsection, it’s time to think again. Why should your waist get all the attention when there’s a whole crop of tools available to shape and show off your fabulous fanny. And from butt pads to booty lifters, we have all the gear to bring up your rear.
One of the easiest ways to perk up your behind is a padded panty. If this is an option you’re interested in, there are many great styles to choose from. One of our favorite makers of bottom enhancing panties is Bubbles Bodywear. Whether you prefer the classic Foxy Fanny Silicone Padded Panty or want to add some curves to your hips as well with the Bombshell Hip and Butt Padded Boyshort, this brand is a must see if you want to create a shapelier look. The Caboost Padded Panty and Booty Pop are also great options you may want to check out.
But perhaps you’d like to add shape to your own natural rear instead of volume? If this sounds like you, you’re in luck. Many of our body shapers have special lifting bands built in that actually raise the gluteus and round the area. Items like the Katie and the Alexis by Vedette are wonderful examples of this technology and as an added bonus, these garments also slim your midsection creating a more dramatic hourglass figure.
And last, but certainly not least, for those of you who want to achieve a perfect apple bottom without the addition of any shaper at all, we have our most stylish solution yet. Originally developed and popularized in Brazil, the butt-lifting jean (also called levanta cola) creates the shape you’re looking for by design, not padding. Their secret is a heart shaped seam that arcs around the top of the buttocks and wraps diagonally around the hips. This makes, in effect, a supportive pocket for your rear, lifting and rounding. And even better, brands like Verox and Capellini Jeans come in tons of styles with sparkling accents and embroidered detailing, so you can really make this look your own.
