Best Underwear For Your Butt Shape


There are no if, and’s or buts—no one booty is the same.

It’s true every body shape is different than the next, and at Modern Match we believe that all butt shapes are beautiful and deserve to be celebrated with underwear styles that will flatter them the best!

Wearing underwear that accentuates your natural form is so empowering, but without knowing your body shape, the shopping experience can feel confusing and a little frustrating. So here’s my crash course identifying common butt shapes, and how to choose the best type of underwear for your booty type.

Selecting the perfect panties style starts with KNOWING your butt shape, and for today we will stick with the four most common shapes:

  1. H-Shaped or Square shaped butts
  2. V or inverted shaped butts
  3. A-Shaped bums aka upside down heart shape, and
  4. O-shaped tushies aka bubble butts

Trust me, once you understand your shape, you'll have way more fun and confidence when you make your next panty purchase online or in-store!  Let’s dive right in!



Best Underwear for Butt Shape: H-Shaped/ Square

The H-shaped butt or square butt is one described to have the same width from the hips to where your butt and back of your thighs touch. Having this shape makes your torso look longer, so your goal is to create some definition in the waist while accentuating your bum cheeks is important.

For H-shaped booties, high-waisted panties are all the rage, as they accentuate the waistline! Combine high-waisted with cheeky and you've got a perfectly plump looking bottom!

Modern Match Cheeky Panty is the best underwear shape for H-shaped butts

Why does the Flawless Form Cheeky Panty work well with the H-Shaped / Square Butt?

This #1 selling undie by Modern Match flawlessly hugs your curves and doesn't ride. More material at the upper area and less at the bottom of the cheeks gives the square butt a bit of a rounder look and more definition. The no-itch lace fabric provides just enough coverage that looks sexy and is comfortable for all day wear. It is seamless on the front and doesn't roll, plus the lace in the back lays nice and flat. It's pretty much everything your lovely square bottom would need!

Best Underwear for V-Shaped / Inverted Butt 

So how do you know if you have a V-shaped bottom? Well, just like the V-shape, the majority of your booty’s mass is in the upper part of your butt, losing volume as you come down from the hip bones towards the legs.

When shopping for underwear for your V-shaped butt, the trick to finding the best panty is to wear something more full coverage. This creates a rounder look for your tush. Look for underwear styles such as bikini bottoms or boyshorts. Avoid panties such as thongs. As a bonus, ruching around the leg opening area will also support you in creating a more full bottom!

Best Underwear for A-Shaped / Upside Down Heart

A-Shaped / Upside Down Heart bums are pretty self-explanatory—your butt follows the path of the letter A that is slimmer up top and wider towards the bottom. People with A-shaped butts usually have a smaller waist followed by a wider bum, and thicker thighs. This butt shape will literally resemble an upside-down heart. 

The best tip on underwear for your body is to avoid covering up too much! Less is more when comes to an a-shape butt, so thongs are a great option–even a cheeky panty!

I recommend: Modern Match Smooth Moves Thong

Why does the Smooth Moves Thong work well with the A-Shaped / Upside Down Heart-Shaped Butt?

O-shaped bums or bubble butts are round butt shapes that have their volume evenly dispersed throughout the bottom.

With this shape you want to accentuate your cheeks, so that means less is more for my bubble gals! Thongs and Brazilian-style bikinis are the most flattering styles for this booty shape.
