Perfect for: middle-of-the-road butts.

Since most cocktail dresses are snug around the hips and butt area, they pack a double-whammy of making your upper body appear smaller while also amplifying your rear. The result: think Kim Kardashian-esque impact on all your curves.

Perfect for: wide butts.

If you have a wider hip and butt region, pencil skirts help create beautiful curves, as well as flatter and shape your posterior. To make this effect even more pronounced, try pairing a form-fitting pencil skirt with a looser, more casual-fitting blouse. The contrast of the two silhouettes will help your rear stand out in a good way.


Perfect for: round butts.

It's no secret that skinny jeans hug your butt, which highlights its shape, making it appear uplifted and toned. For those of us with rounder derrières, this is absolutely a positive thing; be sure to reach for a pair in a high-quality denim, which also serves to flatten out and smooth any unwanted curves.

Perfect for: flat butts.

Because trousers typically fall into a straight, sometimes wide-leg, silhouette, at first glance it might seem like classic slacks wouldn't do much for your rear. However, the opposite is true. For ladies with flatter bums, a pair of tailored, well-fitted trousers help give your butt some lift and volume in an incredibly stylish way.
