8 Best Bum-Sculpting Leggings To Perk You Up

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.

1. Nike Epic Luxe 2.0,  €120 at nike.com

The ideal combination of stretch and support to help you move through your miles.

2. Beloforte Jura Legging / Dusty Rose, €79.00 at belo-forte.com

The double satin elastic waistband is perfectly angled to create the illusion of a waist while flattening the tummy

3. Sweaty Betty Zero Gravity Run Leggings, €115.00 at sweatybetty.com

Say hello to the bum-sculpting superhero leggings. These are ideal for all workouts, no matter how sweaty you plan to get.

4. SPANX Motorbike Leggings, €110.00 at Brown Thomas

Using a distressed faux leather finish, these edgy leggings sculpt to your natural shape, smoothing and enhancing your silhouette for the perfect fit.

5. ALO Airbrush Tech Lift High Waist Leggings, €102.28 at nordstrom.com

Designed in sunny L.A., these leggings are modern, flattering and constructed from durable fabric with an extra-wide waistband that can be worn high or folded over.

6. MYPROTEIN Heartbeat Full-Length Leggings, €42.00 at myprotein.ie

Using super-soft yarns, with a supportive high-rise waist, this best-selling design includes sculpted seams to contour your booty along with mesh inserts – keeping you stylish while you squat.

7. Lululemon Stop Drop and Squat Tight, €118.00 at lululemon.com

The undisputed champions of leggings all over the world, Lululemon never fail to keep us looking firm and fabulous, and feeling svelte and ready to break into an enthusiastic star-jump routine at the drop of a hat.

The brains behind Freddy leisure ware have done it again, with a clever combination of tailoring, stitching and silicone inserts on the waist for an uber-perky, stay-put fit.
