Leggings are essentially a comfort piece; meaning that the second you slip into your favorite legging, you instantly feel more relaxed, comfortable, and at ease. They are the hero clothing staple that provide not only comfort, but also a boost of confidence any given day. Whether you're in the comfort of your own home, out for a jog, or running errands, leggings are a simple outfit solution that literally never fails.
That being said, there are so many different styles of leggings to choose from: leggings for a petite frame, performance-based leggings, and even today's focus, butt-lifting leggings that offer a bit of extra support and oomph in the hip, thigh, and, well, butt area. And if you haven't yet tried on a pair of the latter (i.e., those that make your booty look exceptionally good), prepare to be obsessed with them the minute you put them on—they're that good.
To find the absolute best styles on the market, though, we decided to turn to our favorite online retailer—Amazon—and sifted through the bountiful selection to narrow it down a handful of picks that have rave customer reviews. From a pair that gave just the right amount of lift to another that got one shopper so many compliments, these are the best butt-lifting leggings to work into your workout routine ASAP.
"Absolutely LOVE these leggings! They are super comfy and make your butt look great! When you open them out of the bag you will think the medium is for a small child hahaha but then I put them on and was able to workout just fine!"
"I love these yoga pants! They are the best yoga pants I've ever owned. I have a ruler body shape (straight waist and not much in the way of booty or hips), and it's extremely challenging for me to find yoga pants that fit and that don't slide down when I'm working out. Normally, I'm constantly pausing to yank my pants back up! These are a miracle! I don't know how they do it, but they never slide down. They aren't super tight, either, so there's no muffin top. Also, the fabric is a nice heavy weight and not at all see-through, but still feels nice and cool and breathes well, even when it's a tough, sweaty workout!"
"These are comfortable and fit well. I'm 5'4" 155lbs and ordered a medium. The scrunch flattens out when they are put on, but it still is super flattering on my butt. Great for the price. The legs are long, so I can pull them down over my heels for yoga. I will probably buy more in another color."
"These are AMAZING! I'm in love with them and will definitely be repurchasing them in any color in my size. I'm a small in leggings, and these fit true to size, very stretchy! If you're thinking about getting them, do it! No complaints! There's a large pocket in the back of the waistband, holds my Galaxy 7."
"I bought these pants because I joined a gym and have been trying to get healthy. I love ❤️ them! I will NOT buy any other pants to work out in. They have very cute prints on them and they fit very well."
"After avoiding light colored tights as they tend to show every dimple, I purchased these when I saw them on another traveler in an airport. These tights are a nice neutral color (so tired of black all the time) that fit as described, offer a nice silhouette, and allow for full mobility whether traveling or working out."
"They have a nice highwaist, great compression, and fit throughout, but it doesn't take a year to squeeze into them. The 'magic fabric' makes them easy to get on and off and is uber-comfortable to wear. Somehow, they are thick yet still breathable."
"I like these better than ALL my other leggings. I have a curvy hourglass shape and these leggings are HIGH WAISTED AF, which I love. They are tight around my stomach and waist but still fit my butt and hips which is rare. Usually, to fit my butt I have to size up and the waist is loose, but with these the waist is PERFECT."
"So I bought these and those other famous ones on TikTok that have the fishnet look, and these blow those ones out of the water. Sure if you already have a great body, those other ones are going to look great on you because probably almost anything looks great on you. BUT, if you have a mom bod or an average body, these are where it's at sis. It has a tight thick band to help flatten your tummy, of course, the butt scrunch, but also those shadow strips right under your cheeks that add to the effect!"
