Shopping for jeans is always a tough feat—there’s the wash, the length, and the right fit to worry about, and if you have a small butt, filling out a pair of jeans is one more concern on top of the rest. Obviously you’ll want to find a style that’s snug and flattering (no pun intended) while giving your derrière a little definition, but what should you be looking for exactly?

Mother designer and co-founder Tim Kaeding adds that high-waist styles are ideal because they “promote the idea of a fuller silhouette.” Below are the top three denim styles that are guaranteed to enhance the flattest of derrières.
