Though we can attempt to wish it into existence, we simply can’t all be J.Lo—but we certainly can try our hardest to emulate her. While my workout routine never has been and never will be as intense as Jennifer Lopez’s (seriously, how does she do it?), I can fall back on butt-lifting leggings to pretend that I have the superstar’s unmatched strength and bomb booty. Workout leggings are already relatively tight, squeezing everything in and—theoretically, at least—lifting up the behind. But some leggings do this better than others, giving your bum a little extra oomph.
Luckily for anyone itching to look like J.Lo (so, everyone), there are plenty of leggings made to help raise your booty. Whether you’re someone who likes to go on runs every morning, do yoga at sunset or simply wear leggings to stay comfy while sitting on the couch, there are so many butt-lifting options waiting to leap into your activewear collection. After all, you can never have too many leggings!To give you a peak at what’s available, we rounded up 8 booty-licious pairs for you to shop below. From classic black to fun colorful ombres, you’re sure to find your next go-to flattering leggings below.
And while these leggings don’t come with a warning, let us give you one: Don’t be surprised if suddenly people comment on your mirror selfies asking if you’re J.Lo. (Just kidding! Haha…unless…?) We’re not saying these butt-lifting leggings are magic or anything, but they can help give you the confidence of a mega-star.
