The Ultimate Guide to Buttock Lifters

What are Buttock Lifters? 

Buttock lifters are a special kind of body shaper for women that focus on enhancing the buttocks area of the body. A new phenomenon, Buttock Lifters have been steadily rising in popularity in countries like the United States, Canada, Australia and the UK.

Buttock Lifters are also referred to as buttock enhancersbutt padsbutt lifters, butt lifting panties, booty lifting shapewear, butt shapewearand a long list of other names. Dearest Fawn is widely considered one of the best carriers of women’s shapewear, and more specifically, special lineups of booty shapewear and buttock lifters for women.

How do Buttock Lifters Work?

Buttock Lifters work by improving the shape, size, and overall appearance of your buttocks by adding some lift, padding, or sculpting. Achieving these enhancements will depend on the style of buttock lifter you choose.

The three general kinds of buttock lifters are:

  • Padded
  • Cut out
  • Basic Butt Lifter

Padded Buttock Lifters

Like the name implies, Padded Buttock Lifters use carefully designed pads that enhance the look of the buttocks region by adding extra boost.

Depending on the kind of padded buttock lifter you buy, the pads may be either removable or built-in (non-removable).

Removable Pads: Removable pads sit in dedicated pockets that are neatly sewn into the underwear. The pads, themselves, are usually made of a special foam material - You can also find silicone pads available on the market. Butt shapwear with removable pads still offer a butt lifting effect even 'without' the pads. However, with the added pads the underwear delivers some extra enhancement that is more advanced.

These have removable pads

  • Because the pads are removable, you can also add more padding if you want. See an example of this type of shapewear: here

Built-in Pads (non removable): Non-removable pads are sewn right into the design of the panties. The pads for these panties are often made of a special kind of foam material. Some women prefer this style because there are fewer pieces to manage. Everything is in one piece.

These have built in pads

  • The pads are non-removable, and you cannot add your own extra padding. 

Cutout Buttock Lifters:

Cutout butt shapewear is unique because entire sections of the panties are cut out to allow for the cheeks of the buttocks to sit exposed in the underwear.

Though offering no enhancement directly from the underwear itself, by allowing the cheeks of the buttocks to sit exposed in the underwear, this shapewear gives the appearance of a bigger and perhaps more sculpted buttock under one’s clothes.

  • This kind of butt shapewear is designed to emphasize what you already have. It is non-padded and non-lifting.

The Basic Butt Lifter (No Pads or Cutouts)

This kind of butt lifter is the most common, and includes neither pads or special exposed cutouts for your butt to sit in. Instead, it relies mainly on elastic material that is fit closer to the butt. This close fit, along with stretch material helps to lift, control and manage the shape of your butt. You will often find this kind of butt lifter incorporated into higher end leggings for women.

These are a basic Butt Lifter:

Basic butt lifters also now include non-exposed cutouts (covered cutouts) which help to emphasize the buttocks. This style of lifter is very common in today’s shapewear, and you can find it incorporated in many items on our store.

  • Designed to lift the butt with a special close fit design. Often includes non-exposed cutouts that are meant to emphasize your booty.
