best jeans for your butt

There is nothing like finding that perfect pair of jeans that is comfortable and tight or loose in all the right spots and most importantly, makes your butt look HOT!

Stephanie is the perfect person to teach us about jeans!  She is always fashionably dressed!  She is a professional shopper who knows how to get the right pair.  She took Alison shopping for her TV debut on Good Things Utah and taught her all the ins and outs of shopping for jeans.  Shelley and I wanted in on that action, so we talked her into taking all of us!

(Pardon the flash photography:)

 It was so fun, (and a little embarrassing) trying on jeans and having them scrutinized.  I am sure Stephanie was tired of looking at our backsides by the end…sorry about that!   I wasn’t aware there was a science to picking the perfect jeans, but as you will see, it all makes perfect sense!

“Hi I am Stephanie,

best jeans for your butt I am a busy mom of four girls, and love anything girly!  I Love fashion and anything to do with fashion.  I love, love to shop!

Five Fun Facts:

I Lived in England for two years and my six year old came back with a British accent.

I love dance and taught dance when I lived in England.

Had my third child in England (would never ever do again, and would not recommend)

While living in England my friend and I got up one morning flew to Venice Italy for the day, shopped and came home that same night. (it was heaven)

I love to travel and having new adventures!

Super Hero Power:

My husband says that I have a super power, and that is I have a GPS in my brain.  I can find my way anywhere, and (almost) never get lost.  Yes, I do have a special radar for finding a mall in a city I have never been to.

So there are many types of bums out there, but (no pun intended) these are the main groups. When it comes to Jean shopping what it really comes down to is take your time, you can’t rush it. Try on lots of pairs; you will know when you have found the right pair.

Flat butt

Aim for jeans that have smaller pockets, sat medium high and semi-wide on your booty. The denim needs to stretch and give, so only look at jeans that have Lycra (or similar) woven into the material. Stiff jeans will only flatten your butt further, so avoid classic cut denim. It’s worth investing in jeans that have a waistline that’s average.

A pair of low wasters will only reduce the size of your butt to the eye – and the point is to project ‘more’ – not less.

* Lycra of spandex in them for a lift.

* Wide set back pockets

* Embellishments and stitching

* Avoid stiff denim as it will flatten your butt even worse!

Bubble butt

For you bootie-licious babes, you should buy jeans that sit higher on the waist – no low risers, they’re simply non-flattering. Go for the type that have a larger ‘yoke’. This gives a better coverage across the small of the back. Pockets are great but try and aim for those with a little detail on them, and make sure they’re close together. Widely placed pockets add to width – so avoid widely spaced ones. Find jeans with a little give in them, you might look good standing but you need to think about when you’re sitting. Jeans that cut into your waistline or won’t adjust when you sit will simply ride down – exposing a bit more than you’ll have bargained for.

*Higher waist

*Contoured seams above the back pockets

*Stretchy fabric for a comfortable non-saggy fit

No Butt

When you wear the wrong fitting jeans and have no butt, it can make it look even less there.  There are some great styles on the market that are specifically tailored to enhance the butt.  Aim for back pockets with embroidery, bling, embellishments, buttons, or detailed stitching. Look for jeans with wider spaced pockets to create the illusion of curves. Low rise jeans are a great style for you, and also look for jeans with a faded seat area – basically butt-creating details. As with the flat butts don’t buy stiff jeans.

*Flap or button pockets

*Multicolored designer stitching

*Embellishments on the back pockets

Now my rules for jean shopping:

*The buddy system, never EVER go alone!  Bring a friend you can trust to tell you the absolute truth!

*Try on at least 10 pairs of different jeans.  Jeans that you might not think would look good on you, just might be the ones.

*Wear one of your favorite shirts when trying on jeans.  (trust me on this one, right Alison)

*Wear the shoes you would most likely be wearing with the new pair of jeans.

*Don’t be afraid to get the length of your jeans altered to fit.

If you are like me, Jeans are the major staple in my wardrobe.  I have Jeans for working in the yard, Jeans for everyday, jeans for date night, and jeans to wear on a vacation.  I have jeans in different styles colors and fit.  I don’t think I am an expert, but I do believe that everyone should own a pair of perfect jeans.

Embrace your bootie and go get yourself a pair of jeans you feel hot in.” 

You ROCK Stephanie – thanks for all the fun and for teaching us the answer to the question,

“How Does She find the right jeans?”

Just curious…

what is your favorite brand of jeans and why?

      Lucky Brand jeans are the way to go. I get classic fit (at the semi annual sale) and I can practically go with no belt they fit that good. Luv Lucky Brand. 2nd choice is GAP.

      My favorite pair of jeans I believe are a brand called dollhouse. They fit perfectly...almost like they are magic. Unfortunately I got them on the sale rack at maurices and have not found the brand anywhere else. Does anyone know where I can find Dollhouse jeans?

      American Eagle's Artist jeans are my FAVORITE! Sure I'm a 34 year old mom of 3 and I mostly see girls half my age shop at that store but if you’re shaped like me (straight trunk - with little definition between my waist and hips and a small butt. I think some call that boy shaped) then these jeans are perfect!

      Seven for all Mankind are by far the BEST JEANS EVER. Too bad they cost a small fortune! Oh, how we need a DownEast Outfitters home/clothing store here in Boise!

        candace says:
        You should check out they have designer sales all the time. In fact there was a Seven for all mankind sale going on yesterday. Check it out and hopefully you will find something. If you know the style, fit, and size that works for you then you can just order it.

          I also had a friend just tell me that Kohl's is now carrying a less expensive line of Seven jeans.

        There's a DownEast Warehouse that just opened up on Eagle Rd & Ustick right by Kohl's & Maurices. The girls said they just have a 60 day contract for now, but if they get enough traffic corporate will consider putting in a DownEast Outfitters. *fingers-crossed*

      Hum, my favs right now are MEK's they are so soft and comfy. They have super cute pockets but not to flashy. I also love my Big Star's. I don't love all Big Stars but I have a pair that fit just right. Like the pro said you have to try on a ton because even in the same brand, the style's fit different.

      Great tips! I am on a continual hunt for the perfect pair of jeans. I have to say that for me the more expensive jeans really are worth the money. I spend more on jeans and then find cute, cheap shirt to make up for the extra $$. I love Nordstrom Rack for getting the expensive jeans for half off. My favorite -- Citizens for Humanity and Paige Premium Denim.

      I do have to admit that I got some pretty cute boyfriend jean/capris at Target the other day. They were on clearance and were the Converse brand. And I also like American Eagle jeans -- just wish their pockets were a bit bigger.

      Great topic girls!

      Great post!!......I currently don't have a favorite pair of jeans because I've gained weight, and I have the "bubble butt" this post will come in handy when I go shopping for jeans.

      In the past I have loved Charlotte Russe for jeans - they have several styles for many body types and sizes!

      I've got some serious junk-in-the-trunk, and I am short. Finding jeans to flatter has always been a challenge! (but maybe it is for everybody!!) In any case, I found a brand that fits without fail, and is always very affordable: "Gloria Vanderbilt." For an 'everyday' jean that can withstand playgrounds and spit-up, these are tops!!!

      OH man... I need major help with Jeans. Longer legs, and seven kids give me a muffin top that just is NOT mouth watering. I have yet to find a pair of jeans I love and have come to the conclusion that I just need to drop 20 and THEN maybe I'll find something!

      I'm a plus sized gal, as in, they don't sell pants that fit me at Target, so I buy Lane Bryant or Fashion bug. I L-O-V-E their new color coded 'right fit' jeans. They have great stretch and just the right Stacy and Clinton would approve straight leg cut.

        I had children in both the US and Ireland. The hospitals ( unless your able to spend a fortune) are a little out dated. I didn't have a private room or room service in Ireland that I got in the US, but I preferred the midwife lead care, and the company of the other moms:) To each their own.

      I love the jeans that I bought from Victoria's Secret (catalog/online). I think the name is London Blue, but the wash is a little darker than I would normally get. Turns out that it is perfect for me (when I am not preggo). I cannot wait to get back into them this fall (post pregnancy)!!!

      I would have to say I fell in love with my Jockey Person to person jeans. They have spandex and fit me perfect. I did have toget them altered but they are my favorites. I can wear them all day and not feel uncomfortable or have a jean mark on my tummy. I bought them at a home party and was hooked I started selling their clothes too!

      Great article! But (no pun intended!) - any advice for us short-waisted gals? Anything above a "super-low" rise seems to almost hit my bra strap and make me look like I'm wearing "mom" jeans! But as a 48 year old, the super-low rise aren't always appropriate! I'm 5'4" with most of my height in my legs; I'm in shape and not overweight, but I do have a hard time finding jeans. Any brands you could recommend? Thanks in advance! Lisa
