Also known as the “bubble butt,” cherry-shaped butt, or O-shaped butt, most of the volume of the Round-shaped butt is carried in the center, and it sits high. This shape of butt is very perky and full. It’s the second most desirable shape behind the classic heart- or A-shaped butt.
Despite the popularity of some celebrities who are particularly known for their Round-shaped behinds, here are some downsides to this shape of backside. Finding jeans, pants and underwear that fit at full coverage can be challenging. Also, unless you’re in great physical condition, having an Round-shaped butt can make you look bottom-heavy. A clean diet and regular exercise are key to maintaining not just your bubble butt’s size, but also its perkiness and projection.
Some celebrities with Round-shaped butts include:
- Sofia Vergara
- Kim Kardashian
- Jennifer Lopez
Most of these exercises focus on the gluteus maximus to create or maintain more of your Round-shaped bottom’s pert outward projection.
To keep your perky bubble butt in top shape, try these:
One-legged glute bridges
Hip thrusts with weights
Side steps with optional hand weights
Lunges with optional hand weights
Donkey kicks on a Smith machine, or with ankle weights
Squats with weights
Fire hydrants with ankle weights
Dead lifts using hand weights
Sitting Less and Standing More
Especially if you have a desk job, or one that involves sitting for most of the workday, it’s important to take regular breaks. In addition to walking, consider doing squats and lunges. Incorporating some exercises into your break time can also help both your cardiovascular health and your butt.
A standing desk can also radically change your daily routine. Studies are mixed as to its long-term effectiveness (since a standing desk puts extra stress on the back, legs and feet), but there’s little question that sitting for long periods is worse for your health than standing or walking. Experiment and find out what’s best for your body and your booty.
Your underwear should have enough fabric that it stretches four ways for the best fit. Without this extra coverage, the crotch will tend to shift toward the back, pulling the waistband at the back downward, which can be uncomfortable. A ruched seam that runs vertically up and down the center of the backside builds volume at the sides and is the most flattering for the O shape. You can also size up for the most comfortable and flattering fit.
TIPS FROM OLENA
Don’t just walk as much as possible, but take things up a notch and go hiking occasionally. A strenuous walk on uneven terrain can give your glutes – and your heart and lungs – a serious workout that will pay dividends long after the hike is over. If you prefer using a treadmill indoors, set your machine to include intermittent inclines to get the most out of your exercise.
And be sure to treat the outside of your booty as well as you do the inside of your body. Keeping your skin clean is essential, especially if you’re prone to butt acne. After sweaty workouts, use Massk’s Butt Cleanser. Unplug your pores with Massk’s Bamboo Charcoal Butt Cheek Mask – better than any treatment you can get at a spa. And finish off your regimen with Massk’s Butt Cheek Lotion to bring out that after-workout glow. Your skin will thank you!
