In the words of the great Mary Berry, nobody likes a soggy bottom. With this in mind, it comes as no surprise that (as far as bottoms are concerned, at least) we’re all a bit guilty of keeping up with the Kardashians, whether we like to admit, it or not.
The world has gone derriere-demented, with talk of butt-lifts and bum-implants becoming as mainstream as botox and lip fillers. In a bid to save yourself the hassle, cost and whole – you know – surgery aspect of the above, take a look at this list of booty-boosting leggings and join us as we stand in awe at how fabulously functional fashion can be.
It doesn’t matter whether you have a perky peach, or you’re flat as a pancake, these leggings will give you the gift of the LIFT.
