Things people don’t tell you about growing up: you acquire a taste for wine, the technology you grew up with becomes obsolete, what people think matters less and less and, of course, the first body part to feel the full effects of time is the good ol’ bum.

There’s only so much you can do at the gym and genetics play a HUGE part. And in this Kardashian-obsessed, high-waisted era, how you’re holding up when walking away is starting to really affect women’s confidence levels worldwide.

So what do these little miracle-workers do? Watch the video below to get the 101 on summer’s most, ahem, visible shapewear trend: the butt lifter.

And don’t just take our word for this - ask science! According to Adam Hajo and Adam D. Galinsky, professors at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, what you wear can actually REALLY affect your mood, confidence levels and personality. They call it “enclothed cognition” and you can read their paper in the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology here (#ShapermintSmartGirl alert!).
