It’s not forever 

Butt lifting leggings are all the rage for the way they make you look and feel, but like all the other quick fixes in your wardrobe, the effects of the leggings only last for as long as you are wearing them. 

The leggings do not train your muscles to stay that way, they don’t even make your bottoms rounder and more shapely, they t=just make it look that way with the world-famous scrunch. 

Optical illusion 

Butt scrunch leggings are textures, this disguises the scrunch seem that accentuates each butt cheek making your butt look rounder and perkier. 

While most of the vloggers who tried the leggings did not seem too bothered with the look of the textured leggings, it was the feeling that bothered them.

One vlogger said she could feel the ‘scrunch’ between her but cheeks as she moved.

Here’s the disappointing part

Wearing spanks under your jeans is great, flattens your tummy shapes your curves but could also cut you off at the knee and announce themselves with an uncomfortable ridge. 

These leggings would have been the perfect alternative, but sadly while they do sinch your waist and flatten your tummy, they only give the illusion of butt shaping when you can see the texture and the ‘scrunched’ seem.

How to get these leggings in SA

Getting ahold of international trends can be a mission, but these leggings are available in South Africa are available in a couple of days on Takealot.com for under R500.

This is probably more than you usually pay for leggings, but reasonable considering you would probably have to pay customs and postage fees if you had them shipped from online stores overseas.
