It may be the beginning of winter (whoa, 2022 flew by, am I right?), but if you’re looking to revamp your current swimwear lineup with some butt-lifting swimsuits to flatter that (already cute AF) derriere, we’ve got you covered for any upcoming vacations. It’s always been my stance that a cheekier cut is more flattering than fuller coverage options regardless of your booty size—I mean, seriously, is there anything worse than an ill-fitted, overly-loose bathing suit bottom looking like a straight-up diaper that needs to be changed.
Obviously, the cut, design, and amount of coverage you opt for is totally up to you and your comfort level, but regardless of how much of your backside you’re down to reveal, there are tons of lifting and sculpting swimwear options on the market designed to boost your behind.
Look, swimwear shopping can be uncomfortable—not to mention actually wearing them out in public—and some days, we just want our butts to look as much like the peach emoji as possible—regardless of whether we’ve been adhering to our spin class schedule, or caving into PMS spells, or indulging in pizza and wine whenever possible. In those scenarios, there is no better feeling than slipping into that go-to, butt-lifting swimsuit that never seems to fail us—even on the days when we’re not feeling our best (hey, we all have those days from time to time—regardless of how much we love our bodies or how confident we are).
Whether you’re looking for a cheeky Brazilian bikini bottom or a chic one-piece that highlights your assets, we’ve rounded up the most foolproof, backside-enhancing swimsuits that will help you remind yourself just how hot you are (bum and all).
