Tie side pants
If you have a bottom-heavy bum, so most of your shape sits in the bottom of your cheeks, then tie side pants are the style that you need to add to your summer wardrobe. Since you can choose how much coverage you get from a tie side bikini bottom, you decide how much to lift your bum, creating a peachier posterior for you to own at the beach.
This is also the case for flatter booty shapes. The thin ties such as those on the Namibia Rope Tie Side bikini pant from Heidi Klein draw attention to the sides of your bum which takes the focus off of your rear and makes your bum appear curvier. Adjust the tie sides however you prefer for your shape and style.
