The Butt-Lifting Leggings Trend
Posted: Feb 10 2017
If you haven’t heard about the latest body-shaping trend in leggings, you’re missing out. Like, big time! Just as push up underwires were revolutionary for the bra industry, so are butt lifting leggings for our backsides! If you’ve been blessed with little to no “junk-in-the-trunk” have no fear. Aside from the fact that butt-lifting leggings do actually lift your butt, they also tend to tighten up and cinch your midline for an all around over sexy and beautiful shape.
How do Butt Lifting Leggings Work?
The idea of using clothing to boost less-than-plump body parts is nothing new. For hundreds of years, women have been utilizing undergarments like corsets, bras, and Spanx to shape, contour and tighten everything from waists to saddlebags. However, undergarments present problems of their own such as annoying and rough seam edges that show up under clothes. Which, is exactly why leggings and jeans with the lift built into them have become so popular among fashion enthusiasts! No unsightly seams. No layering. No hassle. Just comfy, smooth, silhouette-enhancing tights you can wear anytime, anywhere.
In order to create the lift you’re looking for, these leggings use clever stitching techniques along with strategically placed pockets and seam lines. However, what you WON’T find are any padding or tricks. All the sculpting and toning you get from these leggings works with what you’ve already got, so you’ll get the most natural looking curves possible. What could be better?
How to Care for your Butt-Lifting Leggings
After you’ve purchased booty-sculptors, and worn them all around the house admiring your derrière (don’t worry, we won’t tell anyone!), you’ll want to make sure that you don’t ruin them by washing them incorrectly or stretching out the stitching. Let’s take a look at the proper ways to care for your leggings below.
1. Make sure they fit. While that might seem like common sense, getting the right size will really make a difference in how long they last and how much volume they add to your backside. For online shopping, make sure you check the sizing guides before ordering.
2. Check washing instructions. They might seem like regular pants, but certain brands and styles may require hand or delicate washing so the material and stitching can be maintained. Similarly, check the directions for drying as some may require line-dry vs. tumble dry or low heat vs. regular.
3. Buy multiple pairs. While this might not seem like it has much to do with caring for your leggings, trust us when we say you’ll probably be wearing them a lot! The lifting and toning can become slightly addicting (in the best way possible), and you’ll wear them out quickly by wearing and washing them frequently. Having an extra or two on hand allows you to wash and wear each pair less frequently.
