You already know that some men love a big butt, but it looks like science is breaking down the infatuation might have more to do with the curve of a woman’s spine.

A study at Bilkent University showed 300 women different silhouettes of women with different degrees of curvature in their spines. They then rated which they found most attractive.

In the end, the majority of men were attracted to a woman who has a spine with a curve of 45.5 degrees. You may think this is a weird thing for men to notice – and it is, more on that later – but the attraction is actually tied into a woman’s fertility: women with curvier spines are more fertile.

“Ancestral women who possessed this degree of lumbar curvature would have been able to forage longer into pregnancy and would have been able to carry out multiple pregnancies with a reduced risk of spinal injury,” explained Dr. David Lewis, a psychologist at Bilkent University to Daily Mail.

Dr. Lewis believes that men who talk a lot about loving “big butts” might actually be more into the curve of a woman’s spine, but are misdirecting their compliment. So does the attraction of the curve of her backside have anything to do with the size of her butt? Possibly.

Apart from the natural fertility, women with bigger butts are smarter and resistant to chronic illnesses

Scientists from the University of Oxford and Churchill Hospital in the United Kingdom have discovered that women with bigger butts which is above average butts are not only increasingly intelligent but also resistant to chronic illnesses, Elite Daily reported.

The results found that people who carry their body fat in their thighs and backsides aren't just carrying extra weight, but also some extra protection against diabetes, heart disease, and other conditions associated with obesity.

"It is the protective role of the lower body, that is [thigh and backside] fat, that is striking," the researchers said in a statement. "The protective properties of the lower body fat depot have been confirmed in many studies conducted in subjects with a wide range of age, BMI and co-morbidities."

According to ABC News, the results found women with bigger backsides tend to have lower levels of cholesterol and are more likely to produce hormones to metabolize sugar. Having a big butt requires an excess of Omega 3 fats, which have been proven to catalyze brain development, Elite Daily reported.

Researchers also found that children born to women with wider hips are intellectually superior to the children of slimmer, less curvy mothers.

Researchers analyzed and compared female belly fat with the legs, hips, and buttocks, finding that the fat from the lower body of women prevents the development of diabetes, thanks to the quantity and type containing hormones, Eyeonthenut reported.

"If you're going to have fat, you're definitely better off if you've got some fat in the lower body," Dr. Michael Jensen, director of endocrine research at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. told ABC News. "If you look at people who have primarily the pear shape, they're healthy in all the ways that this fat behaves. It's not just less heart attacks or less diabetes, it's all these ways we think about fat as an important organ for our health."

Below are 21 summarized proven benefits bigger butt as a woman:


1. Bigger butt is a beauty to behold

I know what I am talking about, you can ask the man nearby you; and in-between butts, and bubble butts! All the butts are amazing. As a medium-butt girl, I’ve envied girls who filled out daisy dukes and tight dresses. The grass is always greener, am I right?

2. Bigger butt promotes healthy heart

According to researchers at Harvard Medical School, the subcutaneous fat found in women’s butts, hips, and thighs may protect them against health issues, such as heart disease and diabetes.

3. Bigger butt fat is healthy

Butt fat is relatively harmless, health-wise. Unlike excess white fat in the gut, which surrounds organs and can lead to inflammation, high blood pressure, and disease, big butts are full of subcutaneous yellow fat, which is benign in that area, Dr. Peeke explains.

4. No saggy trousers for you

No matter how perfect the jeans are that I finally find, they end up sagging by the end of the day, and it’s not cute. Big butts fill out jeans and don’t have to worry about stretched out denim. You lucky gals!

5. Bigger butt makes you more attractive

Some evolutionary psychologists believe that men prefer women with fuller butts because it enhances the appearance of the curvature of the spine, according to a recent study published in Evolution and Human Behaviour. From an evolutionary standpoint, this is a Very Desirable Trait: A curved spine can alleviate spinal pressure and related injury during pregnancy, which supports mobility to forage food for you until the baby arrives.


6. Bigger butt makes you more intuitive

Studies suggest that women, who are generally more empathetic than men, become especially attuned to people’s feelings around the same time they develop curves at puberty. Evolutionary theorists think there could be some connection between emotional intelligence and butt size. Because shapely women who have the largest butts and smallest waists appeal to so many men, they needed to develop superior social skills to assess and select potential mates.

7. It protects you from diabetes

According to ABC News, women with bigger booties tend to have lower cholesterol levels and are more likely to produce sugar-metabolizing hormones. Therefore, women with big butts are less likely to have diabetes.”

8. You have no difficulty sitting on hard surfaces

Falling on your ass is painful if you don’t have much down there to act as a cushion. Sitting on the ground or uncomfortable chairs for long periods of time? Forget about it, little butts. We’re just not well equipped for this.

9. Bigger butt can help protect your lower back

According to Pamela M. Peeke, M.D., a physician and spokesperson for the American College of Sports Medicine; when your butt is too weak to propel your legs forward as you walk, smaller muscles end up kicking in to help, and this can lead to strains in your back, hips and knees.

10. You rock it when you dance

Medium butts like me can totally get down, too. But to pull off true Beyoncé moves and shakes, you probably need a little more muscle in the rear, let’s be real.


11. You can climb steps like a boss

Scaling a staircase requires an orchestrated effort involving most muscles below the waist — including the gluteus maximus, which is the biggest one. That makes climbing steps a total bitch for anyone with a flat, weak backside (unless they have super strong legs).

12. Hunger doesn’t seriously faze you

Yes, big-bottomed women can reserve the right to be hungry. But if you’re too sick to eat, too busy at work to break for lunch, or even stuck on a desert island; the extra fat stored in a big butt can serve as fuel. It’s like a backup meal that can help you survive emergencies.

13. Makes pregnancy a little bit easier

While fuller buns won’t make labor a walk in the park, a big butt can help you stay mobile during pregnancy by balancing the increasingly heavy weight of your baby belly, which can put tremendous strain on your spine.

14. Big butts promote proper posture

Tight hips, an inevitable result of excessive sitting, can make it difficult for you to stand up straight, Dr. Peeke explains. But a strong butt can help lengthen your hip flexors and keep everything in alignment, which alleviates pain (and stops you from looking like a slump).

15. Big booties breed smarter kids

Butt and thigh fat stores special omega-3 fatty acids. Some scientists believe that when you breastfeed, your body taps those stores to enhance your breast milk. Because babies need this particular kind of fat for brain, nervous system, and eye development, some biologists think that a bigger butt could translate to brighter kids.


16. A big butt is like a drug

The sight of a large woman’s butt activates the reward regions of the male brain that are otherwise activated by drugs, alcohol, and food, according to a study published in PLoS ONE in which researchers monitored brain response to photos of women before and after butt enhancement surgery.

17. Reduces dangerous cholesterol levels

When researchers looked into butt fat (measured by thigh or hip circumference), they linked it to healthier cholesterol levels, which mean a lower risk of chronic illness down the line. Women with bigger butts and smaller waists tend to have higher levels of HDL cholesterol (the good kind that helps keep your arteries clear) and lower levels of LDL cholesterol (the bad kind that blocks arteries).

18. It can streamline your silhouette

People with small, weak butts often end up tilting their hips forward and sticking the tailbone out, which pushes the belly forward to give you the illusion of a gut. A strong butt can help correct the overextension of your spine so you default to tucking your hips underneath your body and maintain an all-around leaner look.

19. Diabetes probably won’t mess with you

The bigger your waist-to-hip ratio (i.e., the smaller your waist and bigger your hips), the lower your risk of developing type-2 diabetes, according to an International Journal of Obesity study.

20. Bigger butt is like a helmet for your hamstrings

The muscles that run down the back of your thighs are particularly prone to injury, Dr. Peeke says. But a strong butt can protect the hamstrings by helping out with movements that engage the under-thigh area, like lifting something heavy from the ground.


21. Bigger butt is an in-built cushion

You seriously don’t want to fall on a flat butt: Gruesome bruising aside, you could end up with a stress fracture in your sit or pelvic bones, Dr. Peeke say. But a big butt can pad the blow so you can get right back on your feet.
