    Default big butts on women

    So what's with this? why does everyone think a large jiggly bum is sexy?

    why back when I was growing up (when we walked to school both ways uphill in a snowstorm), girls would lament the fact that they had too much behind them.

    any guys care to comment? or women

    Different people have different tastes?

    It seems to be a cultural thing. Women are dying from illegal butt enhancement injections but if you have the money http://www.nydailynews.com/life-styl...icle-1.1166967

    I prefer a nice firm and toned butt. Not a fan of big jiggly butts at all.
    Thus do we growl that our big toes have, at this moment, been thrown up from below!

    I was born with my big jiggly butt, and I suspect I will die with it

    Why are big jiggly boobs sexy? Or big, fake ones (even worse, they are not even a real body part)?

    Different tastes for different people.

    From the mouth of the horse himself, any time such topic came up with a BF, I would say most voted for preferring a bit of padding.

    My grandmother once remarked that the women of my family all had "hips like a Percheron" but that doesn't mean our butts are jiggly! Just means I have a freaking Barbie-doll waistline and pants don't fit unless taken in at the waist. Not that my husband complains...

    As a people-watcher, though, I will say that a little jiggle seems to catch a fellow's eye, and it seems to be instinctive.

    Not that I've followed it, but for some reason Kim Kardashian's butt is considered some kind of a gold standard? (It could be argued that Kim herself is the gold standard for asses).

    Why?

    Me, I hail from the Square-Butted Tribe. Seriously - it's distaff line thing in my family. We aren't big, we don't jiggle. We are square and flat. Exercise helps add a hint of roundiness and does firm things up. But I'll never have a neat little round bum.

    Well, I will never be 5'6", having stopped at 4'11".
    Those are "them breaks", as they say around here.

    I am "behind challenged"... and am pretty glad about it (most of the time).

    Built with the "athletic body type"- think rectangular shape (shoulders, ribs and hips all "more or less" align)... pretty sure a butt would look ridiculous with my conformation!

    But then again- to each their own... if your SO likes more junk in the trunk, be glad you have some

    I think riding helps keep a butt down (if that is what a person wants...now that I know it is sexy to have a big butt) because of all that glute work of independently using one side or the other.

    I go to the Gap for my jeans and ask for the Queen of Jean as she calls herself. She knows I need the extra long, and she fixes me up with a pair that
    'lifts and separates'. (For you youngies, that's a reference to the Maidenform bra ads from long ago.)

    Narrow waist with more 'padded' busts and hips (which generally correspond to a bit more behind) has been shown in studies to be more attractive to men (who also tend to like a slightly "heavier" looking silhouette when tested than women consider "ideal" when given the same test). Which from a genetic standpoint makes sense-that's a body type more likely be able to conceive, carry, and deliver offspring and organisms are programmed to be attracted to mates that can actually reproduce.

    Or as some of my dance pros have put it, "You can't work what you don't have" regarding hips (or in a more general sense, 'who wants to **** a pillowcase full of coat hangers?" Sorry, one of them's British, he's less self-censoring than most Americans.)

    I always thought pop culture references to big butts on women were supposed to be jokes. Kind of cruel jokes. Heck, Rubens died in 1640.

    [Just looked that up, thought he was later. Illegitimate son of the wife of William the Silent of the Netherlands, who in her own right was heir of the Elector of Saxony. Who knew?]

    FWLIW, I think firm, well-shaped, well-formed, filled-out but definitely not blubbery/jiggly is pretty much the gold standard for either type of female anatomy, and that goes for most of the other guys I know.

    Maybe there's some kind of over-reaction going on against the skinny cachetic look?

    I don't know if it is a curse of an asset on J-Lo?? Hasn't hurt her at all.
