7 Ways to Get a Bigger Butt

The Brazilian booty is the latest trend in fitness. Some women are born with it, while the rest of us have to work at this fitness look a little harder. Exercises are going to be the primary goal, but there is a few cheats you can take along the way to instantly lift and pop that bottom out a little more.


If you are ready to add firmness and roundness to your booty, here are 7 ways to get a bigger butt:

  1. Waist Training

While you wouldn’t think wearing a waist trainer would have anything to do with a bigger bottom, it actually does make an impact, just in a different way. As a waist trainer works to bring in those curves in a fabulous way, and redistribute fat into more complementary results, the illusion of a bigger butt is created. The hips look lusciously more rounded; thanks to those extra inches the waist trainer pushed in and carved into a goddess figure. This is why it is called the hourglass figure.  This is also why it is so extremely popular with women today (and throughout history). Try on a waist trainer and then evaluate your next step in popping out the butt more.

  1. Shapewear for the Butt

You heard that right, and wait until you see the unique products available to do almost about anything you need done to up that booty. Just to give you an idea of the uniqueness of these garments, you can get butt bras, butt pads, booty lifters, and hip pads. These are available in leggings, underwear, and tights. Some have cut-outs in the behind-area, while others add extra cushion. The butt bras are as they say—pushing up and out those flat bottoms. So grab your waist trainer, and add one of these embellishments and you are set for a night out at a perfect form of woman.

  1. Time for Major Squats

Now that you have experienced a delicious night out as a new you, it is time to get serious in a different direction. You probably are already embracing the new found confidence after wearing these garments, and are ready to do the hard work—exercise.

Anybody who is into fitness routines, know squats tighten and lift the butt like no other exercise can. Start off slow, and gradually increase the repetitions. You can do them anywhere (almost) and anytime. Just do them. They do wonders for developing great thighs too. And anytime you get a chance to run stairs or use a stair climber, take advantage. If you continue diligently, you will want more, so try doing jump squats; you will whittle fat at the waist and burn calories fast. Activate those butt muscles, get moving.

  1. Increase the Confident Mind

Now move on to those lower body workouts and add weights. Start small with the 10-20 lb. range. Some terrific workouts for this area using weights are of course the dumbbell squat, sumo squats and lunges.  Hip thrusts, butt bridges and leg presses are also effective in developing strong muscles. If you want to add a little more excitement to the fitness routine try hoola- hooping, hiking, dancing, and Pilates.  The more you do, the more you can do. Before you even realize it, your body is going to beam with golden results.

  1. Eat what you Want, But Not That

Now all your attention will move onto eating habits. You will have to incorporate foods which will help burn belly fat but also feed the bottom for that perfect butt. Try to make excellent food choices by passing up processed foods, fast food, refined foods and high sodium products. Basically eat high on the food chain, and think ‘naturally occurring’ foods like simple vegetables and fruits. For proteins, add the fish or lentils…get creative with healthy sauces. Carbs are going to be a challenge, as most women know; the butt gets big from carbs. Study healthy eating plans and try to incorporate a healthy balance. Eat a dessert once a week so deprivation doesn’t set in and set you up for failure.

  1. Butt Enhancement Pills?

Let’s talk about incorporating supplements and enhancement Pills. This isn’t for everybody. But for those who are implementing a healthy fiber-rich diet, and strength training for a bigger butt, you may be able to benefit from butt enhancement supplements. Most of these are derived from organic herbs meant to stimulate growth hormones. Other benefits are acne reduction and increased mood and energy.

  1. Look at what you are wearing

The last step is a simple but an important one. Choose the right clothes. While you might be sporting a waist trainer or some pretty snazzy butt pads, all this is not going to impress if you opt for the wrong selection in wear. Too tight of leggings may reveal the outline of the padding or a bad fitting dress could tell all your shape secrets. Pull it together nicely and then take on the world.

Do Waist Shapers Work?

The phenomenon of curving the waist instantly has taken over social media. But, do waist shapers work? The short answer is yes. There are huge benefits to wearing a waist shaper.  As we quest for the best body, this is why shapewear exists. It began decades ago with corsets and progressed right into the girdles and padded bras of the 50’s.

This decade is dedicated to any shapewear which leads to that quintessential hourglass figure.  This isn’t a trend disappearing soon. In fact, thanks to social media it will grow for a time to come. Don’t believe me? Hop on Instagram using the hashtag#waisttraining and your jaw may just drop at the over 500k plus posts (and growing) of people waist-training.

You can become a true believer by searching before and after pictures of serious waist trainers on the internet. After this, you will most likely browse for waist shapers or waist trainers to learn more about this fascinating little garment.  The next move is to buy one and try it on.

Waist shapers create a flat tummy by redistributing fat around the core. The immediate results include seeing your waist shrink by 1-3 inches initially. What you want to remember more than anything about waist training is to get a proper fit, and wear it correctly. If you cannot breathe, it is too tight. This can interfere with body processes like digestion (heartburn) or impair breathing. The simple remedy for this is to loosen the waist trainer.

Benefits and Misconceptions

Realize a waist shaper is a golden tool to provide temporary physical benefits such as an overall thinner appearance. It is also good for the mind in ways of confidence and self-esteem.

Other benefits can include extra back support, like a compression garment, and offer posture control thanks to the binding and boning in waist trainers. This same support for the back extends to the front, giving wearers added abdominal support for less overeating or as a reminder to sit up straight. The latex material used in some waist shapers can be equaled to that of a sauna suit, which is often used by athletes to sweat out any excess water weight.  The boost in thermal activity is another added plus to purge out impurities from the body.

Brad Thomas, M.D., an orthopedic surgeon and founding partner of Beach Cities Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, has some great things to say about waist trainers. He has stated he sees merit to some of these benefits. “One benefit that may be overlooked about waist trainers and wraps are their ability to help an individual activate their abdominal core muscles and inspire good posture,” he says. “Possibly, if they are worn a bit loose as to not completely smash the waist but still pull in one’s tummy, the trainers could have a lasting benefit.”

However it is important to pay attention to a healthy diet and a fitness regimen as waist training is not a substitute for a healthy, active lifestyle. Always listens to your body’s cues when engaging in a waist shaping program.

Some of the biggest risks of waist shaping can be decrease abdominal muscle tone, visceral displacement, and atrophy of the abdominal walls. This is why you should take a break from your waist shaper for a block of time. The body can misinterpret the waist trainer as permanent and may interfere with the stomach formation, liver and lungs. So, as a smart wearer, use the waist trainer appropriately and intermittingly, allowing your body to feel natural for awhile before continuing the program.

Much of the ‘squishing’ you read about in regards to waist shaping is exclusive to those who do corsets and cinching. This is a more extreme measure of creating a tiny waist and carries more challenges and responsibilities with it.  If you are new to this area, a waist shaper is the only place where you should begin, and do so slowly.  Do not wear it too tightly or for too long.

Waist shaping properly and safely includes the size and materials used to construct the waist trainer. If you are allergic to latex, choose an alternative material.

Again, waist shapers are not created equal, so sizing has to be carefully assessed; similar to the same process as bra-buying.  If your waist trainer pinches or hurts at all, it is the incorrect size.

If you are ready to start a waist shaping regimen, understand the benefits and procedures involved as this is a big part of your success.  Stay comfortable, and listen to your body. And as no matter how much you love how you look in your waist shaper, give your body a break and go natural for awhile.

Do Waist Trainers Give You Bigger Hips?

Waist training does a wide range of wonderful things to your body. This is the proverbial hourglass body builder. The way a waist trainer attaches to the waist immediately tightens the waist with curves and as the added bonus, gives rounder, more luscious hips. It is a beautiful marriage for this part of the body.

Waist training also creates a flatter stomach and a bigger bottom. What the waist trainer is doing is redistributing the fat. It will push the excess fat from the stomach and distribute it lower, which means around those hips.

If you feel you still need more cushion added to your hips don’t despair. You now live in a time of spectacular innovations in shapewear. There is a committed line of panties with hip padding available on the market to complement the waist trainer. Along with this is butt pads, and butt bras. So whatever your weakest areas are on your body, you can pretty much count on a garment available to help deal with it.


About Exercise

Think about adding Pilates to this venture as well, or even a fun activity geared to trim the waist like hula hooping. Stay limber with side stretches, and yoga. Search out exercises which target the core area of your body. The tinier the waist, the bigger the hips look. Exercise will benefit the hips too by smoothing out those rough and tough patches of fat that don’t seem to want to budge.

While a waist trainer is going to immediately bring on the silhouette form, it will not be a cure-all unless you become inspired to chisel your body as you see it in a waist trainer. For many women, this is just the edge they need to get moving.

The psychological benefits from waist training are nothing short of a miracle. It may not happen right away, but typically it does happen because you are so enamored with your new look, and desire is created to keep that look.

About Eating

Much of the female population experiences weight gain from eating too many carbs. Carbs can show up in back fat, arms, thighs, belly, butt, and of course, the hips. Be carb-aware. This is not an easy task in a country which loves its carbs.

The last thing you want to happen is exercise combined with carbs to bulk you up in the wrong way. Read labels, use mindfulness, or even count carbs to stay on top of this issue. Do whatever it takes to avoid over –eating and unnoticeably packing on more unwanted fat.

About Waist Training

Don’t be shy about buying this trendy, controversial garment. It doesn’t bite like some nay-sayers claim. In all actuality, every woman should try one at least once in their life. There are many benefits to wearing one of these. They are not expensive and come in a variety of different sizes and styles.

You can wear it all the time, or only when you plan on a night outing and you want to look your absolute best. Some women, whose jeans are appearing tighter than normal, will put on a waist trainer to be able to slip into those jeans comfortably and look gorgeous.

This is not a garment which will set and collect dust in your closet; you will be inclined to use it again and again. You may become a true blue advocate using it daily to whittle your waist while you try to lose weight.

Just like a woman’s boudoir is lined with wonder bras, pinched bottom panties, and shapewear…a waist trainer is another necessary item to include in that dresser drawer.
