Leggings are essentially a comfort piece. The second you slip into your favorite leggings, you instantly feel more relaxed, comfortable, and at ease. They are the hero clothing staple that provides comfort as well as a boost of confidence on 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 butt-lifting leggings that offer a bit of extra support and oomph in the hip, thigh, and, well, butt area. 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 to 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.

Review Highlight: "I wear leggings a lot, but I have the same issue with many of them; they ride down, and I always have to pull them up, and I hate it! I have been searching for leggings that don't ride down for the longest time. I read the reviews on these Dragon Fit leggings (they all seemed genuine and legit, and the price was right, so I ordered them. All I can say is, Where have these been all my life? They are perfect. They stay in place, are not see-through, have pockets, and are comfortable. I am a size 16-18, and I ordered the XX-large, and they fit me perfectly. I am so happy! I am now going to order multiple pairs of these!"
Review Highlight: "These workout leggings are well made and comfortable to wear. They are breathable and seem to be moisture-wicking. I've been wearing them weekly over the last six months, and they still look and feel brand-new. I've been washing them with my regular loads in the washer and then tossing them into the dryer—there is no sign of wear or color fade. These fit as expected and are tight without being overly compressing. These also help to enhance and pull your booty up and in place to help you feel and look more confident. These work well for daily workouts, yoga, Pilates, hiking, running, etc."
Review Highlight: "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!"
Review Highlight: "These are amazing! I'm in love with them and will definitely be repurchasing them in any color in my size. I'm 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 that holds my Galaxy 7."
Review Highlight: "They have a nice high waist, 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."
Review Highlight: "I practically live in leggings. I've never seen this kind before, so thought I'd give them a try. They do exactly what they advertise, giving your bum a nice little curvy lift without 'riding up.' They're incredibly soft and comfortable. They laundered well on a permanent press cycle in the washer and a low-heat setting in the dryer. For reference, I'm 5'1" tall and weigh about 115 lbs. The size small is a great fit."
Review Highlight: "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."
Review Highlight: "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!"
Review Highlight: "I have three pairs. Bought two black pairs because I would wear them the most and then went back and got a grey pair for working out. (Don't wear seamless panties with lighter colors tho…) I LITERALLY turn heads when I wear them and I've never been one to do that with my booty."
Review Highlight: "I love these leggings. I went through a bunch of reviews before purchasing and wore them a ton before doing so too. Love the quality of them for the price. Very smooth putting the leggings on, and the scrunch in the back helps my little pancakes. They also hold up where you place them and don't roll down. Plus, these are tall-girl-friendly! It'll make something pop out for you (especially if you're blessed in the back) even if you don't have a lot packing!"
Review Highlight: "For the price these pants were, I definitely was skeptical about how they would fit. They were very comfortable, fit well, thin enough not to feel overheated or stuffed like a sausage, and weren't see though. They also make for a cute gym look!"
Rating: 4.2 /5
Review Highlight: "I have trouble finding leggings that are not 'shiny' but still fit well. These fit the bill exactly as they are cotton rich with just enough stretchy stuff to make them fit well. I am short, so the shorter length is a godsend."
