Readers ask, we answer:

Hi Jolie,
I want a butt that sticks out and one that you can see has a nice shape. I have an okay butt shape now, but I would like it to be rounder and pop out more. How can I get a bubble butt?

If you’re a part of popular society (read: not living under a rock), you’ll know that bubble butts are very much in vogue these days. If you weren’t aware of this, let me give you the run down on why we love bubble butts.

But first, the basics.

What is a “Bubble Butt”?

It’s a glorious booty that is even more glorious to look at. If we had to describe one, a bubble butt is nicely spherical and round and ‘pops’ out. As the name implies, it is bubble-shaped.

How Can I Get a Bubble Butt?

So you’ve seen a bubble butt and you’ve decided you want one for yourself. That’s understandable – they look awesome and guys go crazy for them.

You’ll want to start doing some exercises to try and boost up your assets and try and shape your booty into a nice rounded shape. The video below explains how you can work towards building your own bubble butt through exercise.

Are Bubble Butts Genetic?

Yes. Unfortunately, the shape of your butt is mostly determined by genetics, which means you have to accept what you’ve been born with. But, if you’re not one of the lucky ones who was born with a bubble butt, that doesn’t mean you can’t have one!

Bubble butts are largely shaped by a particular fat distribution, which again, comes down to genetics. You can’t do a lot about changing the amount of fat on your butt without also changing your total body fat content.

But Don’t Give Up on Your Bubble Butt Dreams Yet

As mentioned in the video, you can still start exercising to build muscle which will definitely fill out the shape of your butt and give it a rounder appearance.

Depending on how your butt looks at the moment, you’ll probably be best doing exercises which target the sides of the butt, like the butt scissors that Davey shows in the video.

You can also check out my list of some of the best butt shaping exercises to find out more moves that will help you get a rounder butt.

Supercharge Your Results By Using Weights

If you’ve read any of my posts on building muscle, then you’ll know that the key to putting on muscle mass is training with weights.

If you have a barbell or weighted workout bar at home for weighting up your squats and deadlifts, great – otherwise you may have to hit the gym.


Try doing the other exercises from the video with ankle weights to really get your muscles working.

If you don’t have ankle weights you can rig up a home-made solution for free – or also try using a towel to wrap around your ankle and wrap a bag of rice, plastic bag full of sand, weight plates, or even tins of food in it as a weight. Yes, it’s very MacGuyver-ish (well, maybe a lot less sophisticated), but if you want results you need to add weight!

      Hey Evan, I can’t believe you aren’t happy with your butt, it sounds like a nice one! You could try doing some targeted butt exercises to change your butt shape, but to be honest most people are trying to go from a flatter butt to a bubble butt shape (just goes to show that you’ve already got what most people want and find attractive!!).
      If you really don’t like it, you might be able to try and change the shape a little through exercise, but changes may be minimal if you’re naturally muscular in the butt area. If the shape is due to fat instead of muscle, then overall weight loss (to a healthy weight range for your body, of course) may help.
      Also don’t underestimate the power of simply changing your mindset – a simple change in thinking can definitely turn a hated body feature into one you like.

      Hi Natasa,
      Feel free to contact me through the “Contact” link on this site and I can email you back. I’d say with enough dedication you could definitely get back to your old butt! The potential is there, since you’ve done it before. Nutrition and exercise combined would be crucial for this. I think it’s great that you’ve gone the personal trainer route, and I do think that lifting weights is the best way to get a better butt shape. But if they weren’t taking enough time to explain things to you, then you could always try a different trainer.
      For now, you might benefit from something like this book: Strong Curves. That link will take you to my more detailed review of the book. It goes into HEAPS of detail on how to create a better butt, and has many exercise programs in the back… Do be careful though, maybe you could take this program to your personal trainer (since you’ve had previous back problems), and they help can ease you into it slowly! Be patient too… sometimes getting those gains in the back side can take time (even up to years!). Good luck.
