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?

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.
