Look better in your jeans this fall with these booty shaping moves. A tight, toned tush is a key ingredient for rockin’ your jeans with confidence. Plus, learn some tips to choose the best jeans for your body type!

 

Running StairsTry one or all of these butt-boosting moves a few times a week for a more toned tush by fall.

 

Step-Ups

Grab a pair of dumbbells and place your right foot on top of a box, bench, or step. Without moving your foot, drive through the ball of your big toe to come all the way up to standing. Slowly lower down until your back foot touches the ground. Your front foot stays on the stair the entire time. Be sure to keep chest up and core engaged. Do 10 reps per side.

 

Hip-Lift

Lie on your back with your arms at your sides with your knees bent and your feet on the floor. Lift your hips toward the ceiling, extend one leg at the top of the lift. Keep your thighs parallel and hold the lifted position for about 5 seconds, and then lower back down. Repeat this exercise for 30 seconds; switch sides and do the move for another 30 seconds on the other leg.

 

Lateral Band Steps

Position a resistance tube or band right above knees. Bend knees and shift hips back as if you’re sitting in a chair. Step your right foot wide out to the side, then step left foot half way in. From there, step out with left foot, and step half way in with your right. Continue to step back and forth, making sure to stay in a deep squat the entire time. Keep chest lifted and shoulders back. Continue for 10 steps on each side.

 

The Kickback

Start out on all fours. For 90 seconds, kick your right leg straight out behind you at a 45 degree angle to the floor. Do the same with your left leg. Repeat this three times.

Alter this exercise by lifting your leg up to the side until its parallel with your hips. Do this for 90 seconds on each side, and repeat this rotation three times.

 

Side-Walking Lunges

Instead of lunging forward and backward, step out to the side, bend your right knee and lunge sideways. Repeat 10 times, and then switch to your left side.

 

Stair Runs

Running stairs torches calories and while firming up your butt. Start by running up stairs, one step at a time. Then switch to two steps at a time, and build your way up three steps at a time if you can. Burn more calories by carrying weights.

 

Tips for Choosing the Best Jeans for Your Body Type

 

For curvy or muscular bodies

Do: Choose a darker wash and jeans with Lycra for a more comfortable fit.

Don’t: Avoid baggy silhouettes, which can make you look heavier.

 

If you are thicker in the middle

Do: Choose a mid-rise or classic fit to camouflage your middle.

Don’t: Go too tight, this can lead to muffin top!

 

For pear shaped bodies

Do: Choose shades darker near outer and inner thighs to slenderize and wear a boot cut jeans to elongate the legs.

Don’t: Wear jeans that are too stretchy, they’ll hug in the wrong places.

 

For thin bodies or flat butts

Do: Get pockets that are on an angle to give the illusion of shape and wear low-rise jeans to show off your waistline.

Don’t: Go too baggy.
