So what’s this CRAZY obsession everyone has with BUTTS these days? Some Cosmetic Practitioners say that buttock augmentation is the new breast augmentations. In the last few years, women have become more interested in their rear ends than ever before.

So who can we “thank” or even some might say “blame” for this massive interest in butt shapes and size?

I’m sure we are all very aware that no two butts are created equal, and if you’ve ever looked around you, you would realise the different shapes that are out there.

What Causes the Different Types of butt Shapes?

Generally, your skeletal structure determines the main framework for your body shape, and the overall shape that you end up with is determined by the distribution of fat and muscle on top of your skeleton. For the butt, the main factor which causes the particular shape of the buttocks is your pelvis, followed by your fat distribution which is largely genetically determined.

Well, if you didn’t already know there are actually a few different types of butts that are mainly recognised which you can see below:


Square shaped: A square butt tends to look flat from the side, and almost a little masculine. Cosmetic practitioners find that this is the most commonly complained-about shape.

Round shaped: Although attractive, the round butt is second to the heart-shaped in popularity, according to cosmetic practitioners.

Heart/Pear shaped: The heart- or A-shaped butt is typically considered the prettiest and most desirable shape. Because of the smaller waist and bigger hips, it comes closest to the universally ideal waist-to-hip ratio of 0.7.

Inverted/Triangle shaped: This is widely considered the least attractive butt shape, which gets its look from the presence of more fat in the waist and outer thighs. This is also the most challenging shape from a surgical perspective.

So out of the above shapes, you can see why the heart shape is considered the most attractive and the sexiest shaped butt. For example, we have some iconic celebrities that are very well known for the shape and size of their behinds. We have Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, Iggy Azalea and many more women who have contributed to this massive craze that everyone has been having.


What can you do to create a better shape for your buttocks?

By performing the right kind of exercises, you can improve the look of your buttocks no matter what shape you may have. Exercise is number thing one that will target the glutes and build up those muscles that will give you a better shape. Stronger and bigger glutes means the sexier the booty will be!!

Another thing to keep in mind is Diet –  you want to have those surrounding areas (for example hips and thighs) structured and toned which will support the area and will complement the butt to stand out more.

There are also other options such as enhancement underwear and special clothing that is a great way to shape your booty to the way you want it to look.

So as mentioned above there are many ways to keep in shape and ensure you have a great looking behind!

And if that’s not going to do it for you, or you just don’t have it in you to spend those long hours sweating it out in the gym and eating lean protein and veggies all day every day, there is an effective way to now re-sculpt and contour the buttocks and waist area known as the Brazilian Butt Lift (or jump to before & after gallery). This is a 2 for 1 procedure that transfers the fat from one area into the buttocks area to give you a more natural, harmonious and youthful appearance much like the “heart shaped” buttocks mentioned earlier.
