by Caitlin Casey |

An influx of 'scrunch bum' leggings has been taking the internet by storm, favoured by celebs like Zara McDermott, Molly Mae and Chloe Ferry. These flattering squat-proof leggings make your bum look extra perky while being super comfortable, so it's no surprise they've become a fitness favourite.

Finding the right pair of gym leggings can be a chore, but we're quick to jump on any new gym wear trend. Everybody wants a set that doesn't fall down during squats, keeps you dry while also figure-hugging. Influencers and celebs have been nabbing up these gym sets, and we've pinned down scrunch bum gym legging favourites from Gymshark, Bo+Tee and more. Sharing is caring, after all.

Love Island and Made in Chelsea star Zara McDermott isn't afraid of showing off her amazing figure in these scrunch bum leggings. Pairing a pink pair with a tight long-sleeve gym top makes for a cute set.

Famous mum and previous I'm a Celeb winner Jacqueline Jossa is also a big fan of athleisure and fitness gear as she rocks a bum-sculpting pair of leggings from her range with In The Style. These are honeycomb (also known as waffle leggings) fabric, making them smoothing and hiding any bumps around the hips and bum.

These gym leggings have the perfect bum-shaping and lifting look, that you'll have everyone looking your way. Shop our favourite selections for your new gym wear:
