How To Make Your Bum Bigger Overnight

How To Make Your Bum Bigger Overnight

We’re sorry to burst your bubble here and deliver some negative news right from the off, but you can’t build your butt overnight, well, not naturally, anyway.

But it’s not all doom and gloom. While you can’t add size to your butt overnight, you can make it appear larger.

And that’s what we’re after, right? A bum that actually looks bigger and better whilst we work hard in the gym to build a bigger, better bum.

It’s like faking it till you make it.


The only way we’re going to make our bum look bigger instantly is by deceiving the eye.

That’s right. We’re talking about clever fashion tricks that will make your bum look bigger than it is.

Scrunch Bum Leggings

Scrunch bum leggings are one of the latest fashion trends, and they’re designed to give your bum an extra lift and make it look bigger.

The fabric is gathered at the back, which gives your booty a bit of a push and makes it stand out more. The effect is subtle, but it does give your bum a bit of a boost (in terms of visual appeal, anyway!).

Fitted Jeans

Another great trick is to wear a pair of well-fitted jeans. The idea here is to highlight your bum and give it the attention it deserves. So, avoid baggy jeans and go for something more tailored.

The right jeans can make your bum look more voluptuous, and with the right top, you'll be sure to turn heads. Try it out, and don't forget to take a "before and after" pic.


Butt lifters shapewear has been around for a while now, and it's still a common method used to make the bum appear larger. This type of underwear is specifically designed to lift, shape, and define your bum, making it appear fuller and firmer.

Waist Trainers

Waist trainers make the waist look smaller, which in turn makes the bum appear larger. They work by compressing the skin and hugging you at the waistline, creating an hourglass figure.

They can be a bit uncomfortable and take some getting used to, but once you’ve got the fit right, they’ll work a dream.

Bum Pads

You probably remember bum pads from the days of school discos and 90’s fashion. They’re still around, although they’ve been modernized, and you can buy them in all different shapes and sizes.

They’re a great, fast option to "pump" up your bum and make it look bigger. Just keep in mind that some clothing (such as leggings) might not be suitable for wearing with them.

High Waisted Leggings

If you’re not a fan of the Bum scrunch leggings, you could always opt for a pair of high waisted leggings without the scrunch. These leggings are designed to suck everything in and provide extra support for your midsection, helping to give your bum that extra oomph.

These days, you can find high-waisted leggings in all sorts of styles, fabrics, and colors, so it’s easy to find a pair that works for you.


Not recommended, and not instant, but it can be bigger after a few hours of surgery (not that we advocate this!). The most common procedure is a Brazilian Butt Lift, which involves transferring fat to the areas of your buttocks where you want it.

While the operation is considered safe, it’s expensive and involves some risks. Some of the potential complications include scarring, infection, lumps, loss of sensation in the area, and uneven buttocks. If you’re considering surgery, research and ensure you go to a qualified surgeon.


Unfortunately, some things just won’t make your booty bigger overnight (or at all, for that matter). They’re just another marketing ploy to make you part with your hard-earned cash.

Bum Enhancing Creams

These creams are often advertised as a way to make your bum look bigger, but the reality is they won't work. At best, these creams will provide a temporary tightening effect, but there is no evidence that they can change the size of your bum in any way. The only way to make your bum bigger is to put in the hard work; focusing on a muscle-building diet and training plan.

Bum Supplements

Several supplements out there claim to help you get the booty of your dreams. While some of these may increase energy and recovery, we can't guarantee they’ll make your bum any bigger. Supplements that can be used during a muscle-building phase of training include protein powder, creatine, beta-alanine, weight gainer shakes, and MCCA.


So, we’ve discussed how to trick the eye to make the butt appear larger, but how do we actually make it larger. Growing Your Butt = Frequency & Volume.

Glute Building Diet

So we get off on the right foot, let's understand one thing. The majority of the bum is a muscle (in fact it’s 3 muscles, more on this later). So to build the bum, we’ve got to build the muscles.

To build muscle, we need to be supplying the body with enough energy (food) to build new tissue. This is commonly known as the calorie surplus. A calorie surplus involves eating more calories than you burn on a daily basis – this ‘surplus’ of energy will go toward building new muscles.

If we don’t eat more than we burn, then we’re never going to build muscle, simple. To work out exactly how much you need to be eating to build muscle, check out the linked article. It’s here you can work out how many calories, protein, carbohydrates, and fats you need each day to support the muscle-building process.

Working Out for Glute Growth

The other most important element to building muscle is resistance training, i.e. hitting the weights. We need to regularly perform muscle-building glute exercises to add size to the butt. These include squats, hip thrusts, lunge variations, leg press, glute cable exercises, and dumbbell glute exercises – there are loads of exercises you could do to grow the glutes – check out the ‘Build Muscle’ section of the blog!

With our training, we need to ensure we are applying a principle called progressive overload. This is where over time we increase the stimulus placed upon the muscle to force further adaptation (i.e. growth). If we don’t continually increase the stimulus placed on the muscle and train the same week in, week out; the muscle will adapt to the initial training stimulus but then plateau after a few weeks as the body no longer has a reason to adapt.

What we need to do is continually increase the demands put on our bodies. We can do this by:

  • Increasing the number of reps
  • Increasing the number of sets
  • Increasing training frequency
  • Reducing rest times
  • Increasing the weights we’re using (most common)

Gradually increasing the weights we work with is a great way to implement progressive overload, and it doesn’t change our routine or add extra time to the session.

So, calorie surplus & glute building exercises while implementing progressive overload – got ya!


Despite what the marketing says, no magic pill or cream will make your bum bigger. The only way to actually make your bum bigger is with resistance training and the correct diet.

If you’re looking for a quick fix that you can use while you’re on the journey to physically building the butt: shapewear, high-waisted leggings, and bum pads are all options you can explore.

Give it time, work hard, and you’ll no longer need tricks to make the bum look bigger – it will just be bigger!

Good luck and happy booty building!
