1. Cinch up your waist. You can try something like the “booty wow” it lifts instantly without padding. Emphasizing a small waist will make your bottom look bigger by proportion. Whether your tummy is tiny or not, try these tips to trick the eye:
Wear a belt over your waist. Find a medium to large width belt, and tie it around the tiniest part of your waist, over whatever shirt your’e wearing. (This looks best over button-down shirts, sweaters, or loose blouses.) For extra emphasis, put a dark-colored belt over a light shirt.
Try a girdle. If you have a little more girth than you’d like around your middle, try a girdle. It should push the excess from your tummy down around your hips and butt. Girdles can be found at most department or lingerie stores.
Don’t wear horizontal stripes or patterns around your waist. Busy fabrics or colors will emphasize your tummy and make it look bigger. Instead, stick to dark, solid colors on top.
2. Pick the right pants. The right pair of jeans can seemingly transform your butt, making it appear round and perky. Consider the following next time you buy a pair of jeans:
Keep the fit tight. Baggy pants will “drown” your curves, making them impossible to see underneath too much fabric. Skinny jeans or jeggings are ideal for showing off your butt. If you’re not quite comfortable with that, try bootcut or regular jeans with a fitted rear.
Look at pocket placement. Small, high back pockets will make your butt appear larger. Additionally, pockets with embellishments such as sequins, stitching, or colored thread can add more interest and “direct traffic” (or draw the eye) to your rear. Avoid jeans with big pockets or no pockets at all.
Try high-waisted jeans — the top of the pants should fit around the slimmest part of your waist, making it look small and your butt appear bigger.
Wearing low-rise jeans (that hit at the widest part of your hips) with a fitted shirt can also give the illusion of a bigger rear.
Avoid dark wash jeans, which will make your legs and rear look smaller (especially if you’re wearing a light-colored top). Instead, try white, pastel, or light blue jeans.
Wear high heels. Heels change the natural curve of your spine, causing both your butt and your boobs to protrude more.
For an extra-lifted rear end, ditch the kitten heels and go for stilettos.
If you’re unsure that this works, get in front of a mirror and stand up on your tiptoes (it will help). Take a few steps, and you’ll notice how the movements of your legs and rear are a little more exaggerated. Your legs should also look more toned, and your butt should appear to be an inch or two higher.
This advice applies to men as well. The first high heels were designed for horse riders, to help the shoes grip stirrups. To this day, cowboy boots sport heels (and many cowboy’s sport tighter jeans — coincidence?).
Keep in mind that wearing high heels all the time can permanently damage your feet and knees.
Change your posture and your walk. How you carry yourself can highlight or obscure different parts of your body. While wearing heels can alter your posture, you can also do it without them. Here’s how:
Throw your shoulders back and arch your lower back. This will not only make your butt more prominent, but it’ll also slim your torso a bit and make your chest look bigger.
Imitate the way runway models walk. Imagine there’s a straight line running on the ground ahead of you, and it’s located exactly beneath your belly button, in the center between your two feet. When you take a step, move your foot toward the center of your body, putting it down on this imaginary line. Then put your other foot down on that line, directly in front of your first foot. Keep walking this way, one foot in front of the other and clench your glutes.
To further emphasize your curves with a feminine swagger, follow the steps in
Build up your glutes. You can actually make your butt rounder and larger by strengthening the muscles in it (namely, the gluteus maximus, gluteus medius, and gluteus minimus, or glutes). Try these exercises:
Do squats. The ultimate butt expanding exercise is the full squat. It not only can dramatically increase the size of your butt, but it will also improve the shape of your legs, giving a more proportioned appearance.
Stand erect with your feet about shoulder width apart.
Keep your arms extended in front of you.
Slowly bend your knees to a ninety degree angle.
Keep your back straight and eyes looking ahead.
Slowly rise to starting position, placing your hands on your hips.
Do lunges. Lunges will build up your quads (thighs) and glutes. To focus on your quads, do shorter lunges; for better glutes, do longer lunges.
Stand erect with your feet about shoulder width apart.
Keep your back leg straight and bend your front leg to lunge.
Return to starting position.
Alternate with your other leg.
Do kick backs. This exercise will both bulk up your glutes and improve your balance. To add resistance, use ankle weights or cables.
Stand on one leg.
With the leg that is free off the ground, kick it back until you see your butt squeeze into a bubble.
Repeat 10 times and switch.
Tighten your core muscles. Working on your core (namely the rectus abdominis muscle, the internal and external obliques, and the transversus abdominis) can melt away excess fat around your belly, making it look tighter and smaller compared to your butt. Start off with these exercises:
Do leg lifts. Leg lifts (or raises) might sound like they’re focused on your legs, but really they’ll help work your abs. This beginner exercise can be made more difficult by holding a medicine ball (or bundle of clothes) between your ankles.
Lie flat on your back with your legs stretched out in front of you.
Bend your legs and raise them, keeping your toes pointed.
Straighten your legs so that they’re pointed at the ceiling.
Slowly lower your legs to about an inch off the floor.
Slowly raise your legs back up to the ceiling.
Repeat 5 times, then rest for 30 seconds.
Do twist crunches. This variation on abdominal crunches will target your obliques, or the muscles around the sides of your waist.
Lie on your back on the floor and bend your knees.
Put your hands behind your head, keeping your elbows bent.
Lift one shoulder off the ground, and twist to the opposite direction. For instance, if you lift your left shoulder up, twist your body toward the right.
Repeat, alternating shoulders. Do 10 on each side.
Try sports that build your leg and buttocks muscles. A hobby you enjoy could also simultaneously enhance your rear. Here are some possibilities:
Changing Your Diet
Adjust your weight. Whether you should gain weight or lose weight in order to make your butt bigger (relative to the rest of your body) depends on your natural body type, which is controlled by genetics. When you gain weight, where does the fat go first?
If it tends to go to the butt and hip area, gaining a little weight will help fill things out. See How to Gain Weight.
If fat goes to your arms, stomach, or back first, losing some weight will make your body more petite in relation to your butt, which makes your butt look bigger. ReadHow to Lose Weight. This is especially true if you carry extra weight on your waistline. Getting a smaller waist can make your butt look bigger, even if it didn’t change a bit.
