The elements that combine to create the best scrunch bum leggings on earth collate into quite a lengthy list - but in 2024, it is indeed possible to find your perfect pair. A few years ago, it was hard to find the best leggings that 1) didn't fall down, 2) was amply high-waisted, and 3) was fully squat-proof. Fast-forward to the present moment, and now leggings can even make you look like you have a bigger and rounder bottom. May we welcome you to the concept of scrunch bum leggings?

Absolute WITCHCRAFT, as seen on Chloe Ferry below. Whether you need a pair of running leggings or just a tight pair to show off your booty on a night out - Chloe says, bring on the scrunch. Because if there's one thing Chloe Ferry's Instagram tells us, it's that she is obsessed with this latest leggings craze. And, tbh, we are too.

What are scrunch bum leggings?

Essentially, they have a well-positioned 'scrunch' seam that accentuates your bum cheeks. This ultimately makes your booty appear bigger and more rounded. Essentially, it has never been easier to achieve booty goals a là Kim Kardashian.

Butt selfies, incoming. 📸

We promise you once you see how great you look in a pair of these bum-sculpting leggings, you'll never go back to a standard pair again.

How to achieve #bootygoals naturally:

Want to grow your bum through exercise and nutrition? Here are three must-haves to see results...

1) Focus on staple leg exercises: once you've got yourself a solid pair of gym leggings, work on your hip thrusts, deadlifts and squats. They should be a staple to your leg day routine. Concentrate on good form, consistency and progressive overload rather than complicated moves.

2) Make sure you're eating enough: to gain muscle, you need to be fuelling your body with enough calories and macronutrients to aid that process.

3) Fill up on protein: an essential macronutrient that helps repair and build muscle tissue. All needed to help grow your booty. Think lean meats, eggs and protein shakes, whilst peas, tofu, and chickpeas are great vegan options.

4) Get pregnant: if you want to fully commit to getting a bigger bum and bigger boobs, you might as well go the full hog and get pregnant. Step too far? Anyway, you'll want to opt for some maternity leggings in that case, anyway.
