Kim Kardashian shows off her assets on the cover of Paper Magazine and our reporter checks out how you can mimic her style.
Most women can’t — or won’t — pony up $10,000 for a surgically enhanced booty like Kim’s, but there is good news for bun worshippers: Products such as Booty Pop padded underwear, butt-lifting jeans, boosting Spanx and even butt-enhancement cream all claim to provide a reasonable facsimile.
Full disclosure: I’m pretty happy with my derriere, though for the opposite reason that Kim loves hers. It doesn’t garner much attention, being neither huge nor flat. But these days, it’s all about that bass.
So I started with Spanx’s Slimplicity Booty Booster Shorts ($68 at spanx.com) — high-waisted nude compression shorts with a firm, wide, oval-shaped pad for each cheek.

The results were negligible. I mostly felt like I had inserted chicken cutlets into my back pockets. Comfy, but not wow-factor.

It was time to go bigger. The Booty Pop Boyshort ($22 at bootypop.com) has a smaller but ever-so-slightly thicker layer of padding.
The top of my butt was definitely higher, but too fake-looking and shelf-like. Perfect for balancing a Champagne flute.
Besides, even if my butt looked bangin’, there’s something decidedly unsexy about nude Spanx and cotton boy shorts. There had to be something that looked more like lingerie.
Enter the Vedette Amie Mid-Thigh High Waist Open Bottom Enhancer ($55 at hourglassangel.com). Instead of using padding, the compression material stretches from the belly button to the mid-thigh and has two dinner-plate-sized holes for the butt to project at full capacity.
I felt like Christina Aguilera in assless chaps in her “Dirrty” days, but the “enhancer” best approximated the Kardashian-like rear end. My butt was huge. Two subway seats huge.
Booty Pop padded underwear (pictured) and boosting spanx claim to get women the same butt that Kim K. has.
But underwear — or, more accurately, butt underwear — is only one way to get there. Verox makes two pairs of jeans that it claims push the glutes up to the maximus.
The On the Daily Butt Lift Jeans ($67.80 at hourglassangel.com) have a heart-shaped seam to suck the cheeks together. And the Blue Angel Butt Enhancing Skinny Jeans ($67.80 at hourglassangel.com) taper around the hips and even work to flatten your tummy.
I mostly felt like I was trapped in sausage casing.

Of course, there are plenty of dietary supplements out there claiming to triple your butt size. Gluteboost has Butt Enhancement pills that are supposed to increase estrogen throughout the body, concentrating fat cells where they matter: that womanly ‘C’ curve.
And Gluteboost’s Butt Enhancement cream contains what the company calls Voluplus and Volufiline, ingredients that allegedly activate fat tissue.
After using the cream, I started to worry I’d just told a lie. My pants were on fire.
Well, mostly my butt just felt hot — and not in a good way.
