"You want to look as great walking out as you do walking in!!!"
In light of this, I thought I would share some tips on selecting jeans with back pockets that suit your butt. For some, this will mean choosing pockets to create more butt and more curves on your back side and for others it will mean selecting pocket features to minimise a voluptuous bottom!
So...in a nutshell the things to consider when selecting pocket features for the perfect butt in your jeans are:
- Pocket size
- Pocket placement
- Angle of pockets
- Detailing on pockets
- Bulk of pockets
Flat Bottomed Girls
You probably feel you'd like to create more bottom so you are looking for pocket features to accentuate your rear view!!
Consider back pockets with a 'flap' design to add some bulk.

Contrast stitching and bold accents (embellishments, embroidery) also create the illusion of more fullness.

As an alternative to jeans with flap pockets you can look for jeans with back pockets that are placed higher on the bum and tilted slightly outward, to give your butt a lifted appearance.

Note.....The bottom of back pockets shouldn't sit lower than the bottom curve of your butt (where your butt cheeks meet your legs), as this will give your flat butt a droopy appearance.
Big Bottomed Girls
Depending on your proportions you are probably wanting to find back pockets to flatter your perfectly curved bottom or you are wanting features to minimise a bigger bottom.
The size of the pockets is a big trick. Choose back pockets that are a medium size (in comparison to your own bum). Too small and you make a bigger butt look even larger.

Pockets that are closer together will also create the illusion of a narrower bum.

Avoid pocket flaps, embroidery, embellishments or any other features that are going to add bulk to your rear.
You can help create a slimmer butt, too, by always opting for dark washes of jeans.
