Levi's Wedgie Jeans Lift and Accentuate Your Butt—So We're Buying Them

A wedgie never looked so good.

Levi's Wedgie Jeans


Jeans are one of the most versatile wardrobe staples, coming in a wide range of colors, lengths, shapes, and sizes. And let’s face it: we pretty much love them all. They're easy to dress up, keep casual, and pair with almost any shoe in your closet—think pumps, flats, sneakers, and boots. They are also available in a variety of styles to fit every aesthetic and preference: wide leg, boyfriend, bootcut, barrel cut, and the ever-so-bold wedgie. 

If you're looking for denim that hugs your hips just right and gives your tush some lift, you need to get a pair of Levi’s wedgie jeans. The iconic brand has been around since 1873, and they have a history of innovation when it comes to starting trends that turn into timeless classics. Wedgie jeans give the illusion of a butt lift by separating your cheeks, sort of like you have an actual wedgie but in the best way possible. They are usually high-waisted and are made from denim with some stretch. 

To keep your denim looking and fitting its best, the brand recommends washing your Levi's Wedgie Jeans once every 10 wears with liquid detergent. It is also a good idea to launder them inside-out to maintain their color.

Inspired by vintage Levi's styles, the wedgie jean is available in different looks to fit every curve-hugging preference. Excited to give this look a try? Read on for seven of our favorite pairs of Levi's Wedgie Jeans to shop now.
