Ain’t no shame in keeping a little extra junk in the trunk. A bigger booty actually makes your waist look smaller and is super sexy when you dress it up right. Here are 5 clothing combos to help you show off your assets to their fullest potential.
1. Skater Skirt And A Crop Top
A good skater skirt gives you a little extra bounce when you walk, bringing some much-deserved attention to your booty, while crop tops emphasize your waist without the added bulk that comes with tucking in a shirt. Add a cute belt for extra impact.

2. Boyfriend Jeans And A Motorcycle Jacket
Motorcycle jackets are supposed to be a little short, which is perfect since you don’t want your jacket to cover your butt and add bulk around your middle. Look for boyfriend jeans with a higher rise so they fit closer to your natural waist and just skim your upper thighs. Make sure to cuff the bottoms just above your ankles – it adds a little bit of volume to the lower leg of the jeans, which actually makes your whole leg look leaner.

3. Fit-And-Flare Mini Dress
Look for dresses that hug your torso and then shoot out in an A-line from your waist. The dress should end somewhere on your mid thigh, so that the hem does not hang down and touch your leg. Having that space between your hem and your legs camoflages your thighs and makes you legs look more lean.

4. Pencil Skirt And A Cropped Sweater
This is the leanest look you can get without strapping on a bandage dress. Don’t worry about exposing your midriff if you don’t want to – the pencil skirt should hold in your belly and underlap slightly with the sweater to keep you completely covered.

5. Off-The-Shoulder Dress
An off the shoulder dress, cutting horizontally across your chest, gives you a more balanced hourglass shape and makes your waist look smaller.
