For both men and women, the buttocks are a highly symbolic part of the human body. Like the breasts, for women the buttocks are a symbol of femininity, sensuality and fertility. And the buttocks come in very varied shapes! In fact, although all buttocks are formed in the same way, no two are alike.

The buttocks are mainly made up of buttock muscle, which comprises three layers of muscle (gluteus maximus, gluteus medius and gluteus minimus) and fatty tissue.

It is possible to distinguish 4 different buttock shapes in women:

  • A-shaped (or heart-shaped) buttocks: the waist is quite slim, and the volume is distributed towards the lower part of the hips and top of the thighs.
  • C-shaped buttocks: the ultimate round buttocks, with the volume distributed evenly over the whole buttock.
  • H-shaped buttocks: the width of the upper hips and outer thighs form a straight line in square-shaped buttocks.
  • V-shaped buttocks: the top of the buttocks is wider than the bottom. Women with narrow hips generally have this shape.

The buttocks are generally a difficult area to build muscle in. Due to the anatomy of the buttocks, but also following weight loss or gain, the buttocks can often give people complexes – all the more so as they are not spared from the effects of aging. The skin on the buttocks does indeed sag over the years, and this process is made more prominent by weight changes and a lack of physical activity.
