Last December we asked our readers to tell us about their biggest denim-focused hang-up, and several comments mentioned the desire for boyfriend jeans that “make your butt look good.” So, in an effort to find the best #belfie-worthy pair, we put three of our favorite denim brands to the test. After trying on a number of excellent options, we narrowed it down to each brand's top two styles with the most flattering fit.
Scroll down to see the results, and let us know which pair is your favorite at the end!
“I love super-relaxed jeans, but I usually hate how they make my butt look—no curves? No thank you. The Loosey are the exception: They have a true boyfriend fit, but the rear view doesn’t get compromised. The wash is gorgeous too, with a vintage-inspired appeal.”

"It really amazed me to discover that a good-fitting pair of boyfriend jeans could actually hug my bum in a way that flatters me as much as a slimmer-cut pair of jeans. When I first tried this pair on, I actually thought they were a bit too snug, but after wearing them for a bit, the waistband loosened up nicely while the denim stayed fit to my rear—a good combination if you want some seriously bun-loving jeans!"

“When I tried the jeans on at home and looked in the mirror, I was all about the lighter pair. Surprisingly, once I saw the photos, the darker wash stole the win. The deeper hue and distressed detailing accentuated my backside and gave my butt an extra oomph of attention!”
