Does this make my butt look big?

For those of you that know me, I'm not lacking in the derriere department.  My 5 year old son has even noticed this quality about his Mother.  As we say, a Squishy Tushy.

My Sister is in town for a couple weeks and we both love to shop.  There is limited shopping around the area, but I can always mange to find somewhere to go.  On this occasion we went to Macys.  They have a pretty decent jean collection there.  I was quite shocked  by this.  So we had fun trying on a few pairs.  Let me tell you, finding the perfect jean is one of the hardest things I've ever done.  I have yet to complete this mission.  But, it's a huge goal of mine. Yes, some people have a mission to get a PhD, or resolve major World problems, but my mission in life is to find the perfect jean, for my body type that is...

So jeans can make or break a figure, especially your BUTT.  It can make you look like you had some magical butt lift, or it can make you look like your behind is 5 inches bigger than it actually is.  I can go on forever about the "perfect jean", but for now, this is one lesson.  Pockets:  If you are well endowed in the Butt area, the smaller the pockets, the better.  Don't have any flare on the pockets.  Fancy Schmancy jeans are not great for bottom heavy Women.  Also, those pockets with the flaps on them can make a behind look bigger.  Structure is good for a jean as well.  I know "jeggings" (jean leggings) are in right now.  They are just like wearing some regular leggings.  As a person who likes to follow trends, I really would love a pair, but I tried some on, in a lighter wash and they made my booty look HUGE!  Here are the pictures below...
Ugh, here is for all to see my squishy tushy!  This is with the jegging.  It's just all spandex with no structure and a lighter wash.  These were Hudson jeans for $140

This is the better jean!  See how small the pockets are?  It has more structure to the jean, meaning more to hold you in.  My behind looks much smaller.  These are Joe's Jeans, called Honey.  They were $158.

Now off to do some Squats!


  1. You should look into Buckle's Madi jeans... they're made for us "curvy" girls.

  2. Bigger booty makes for a better woman. I don't understand why you'd want to make it look so congested and squished in with those other jeans. I wouldn't bother with what's "in" and feel your own style out for yourself (screw Hollywood). Your ass isn't that big as it is...
