Need a 'lift'? TikTok is obsessed with these sculpting leggings — and so am I

If you’re addicted to TikTok trends (like me), then you’re already in the know about the viral Seasum Yoga Pants — better known as the Amazon “butt-lifting” leggings. With over 51,000 verified five-star ratings, it's no surprise that these trendy pants are one of Amazon's top sellers in women's activewear.

And after trying a pair for myself, I can tell you that they are definitely worth the hype. Comfy, stretchy, flattering and high-waisted fashion all wrapped up in one, these leggings are a must-have for your wardrobe — for any season!

They accentuate the booty

The Seasum yoga pants’ honeycomb material truly gives your behind a magic boost! The seams are strategically placed to cinch at the booty and “lift” it in all the right areas. The pattern (which reminds me of fishnet stockings) smooths the appearance of your behind — and just like that, bye-bye cellulite!

“The honeycomb texture of these leggings completely conceals any dimples or cellulite,” one Amazon reviewer wrote. “I have been blessed with a pretty good butt, but these give it an extra oomph.”

They pass the squat test

Whenever I order leggings online, there is always a fear that they are going to be cheaply made, or worse, see-through. Turns out, I had nothing to be afraid of this time. These leggings have a shimmer finish, which gives off the illusion of being translucent, but they are definitely opaque. They give me that perfect stretch when doing yoga and Pilates, without causing any wardrobe malfunctions. And yes, they are completely “squat proof.”

The fabric is made up of a thick, textured blend of polyester and spandex that covers all my flaws. It not only provides equal amounts of comfort and stretch but also features moisture-wicking and sweat-absorbing capabilities, which come in handy during a workout.

They come in a ton of different colors

The viral leggings are available in almost 100 different colors, designs and length combinations. The most popular shades I've seen on TikTok are black, gray and purple, but Seasum also offers a few trendy patterns like tie-dye, camo and animal print. At 5'6'', I opted for the ankle-length in black. I purchased a size L and found the length and overall sizing to fit just right. I also appreciate the high waist because it's super flattering and keeps everything tucked in.

The brand also offers a "booty shorts" version of its famous leggings as well as ruched and contoured styles. If they are as flattering as the TikTok yoga pants are, and include the same tush-lifting results, be sure to count me in for a few pairs!

Although the legging's care tag says to machine wash and dry, I prefer to hand-wash and lay it flat to dry. With this routine, I won't risk altering the shape, size or feel of my favorite pair of pants.

The best thing about these leggings is how versatile they are. I like to style them with an oversized sweatshirt and sneakers to run errands, but they're also my go-to for workouts. Wherever I choose to wear them, I feel confident that my body is looking its best and getting the extra boost it needs.
