Real talk: my butt has always been my least favorite feature. No matter how many millions of squats I do, it doesn’t have that . . . oomph that I’m looking for. Hey, it’s cool, there’s plenty of other physical features that I love about myself, and all booties are beautiful in their own way — but I would love to give mine a little lift every once in a while with a great pair of pants.
I was talking to my friend Brinton the other day, and she told me she found jeans that are like “a push-up bra for her butt.” I thought that was straight-up genius. I want push-up bra pants! So I went on a quest to find the most flattering jeans for my body, and after dozens of try-on tests, I discovered the pair. The. Pair.
Pulling on these jeans is like doing 100 squats without all the work.
These Good American Good Curve Jeans ($165-$179) give my butt the lifted, rounded look I never thought I could achieve. Pulling on these jeans is like doing 100 squats without all the work. Never in my life have I been so willing to have my backside photographed.
Not only does this denim make me feel great, it’s also incredibly well-made. The gap-proof waistband gives me a perfect fit and the cropped legs hit just right on my 5’5″ frame. Emma Grede and Khloe Kardashian know their stuff, because the cofounders’ selection is thoughtfully designed and come in sizes 00-24. I’m crowning them jeans queens.
Keep reading for all the details on my new favorite pants and to see more washes. I’m telling you, these blues are anything but sad.
