Ladies (and gentlemen) take note: size really does matter. More than 16,000 women took part in a study confirming what we’ve long suspected. In matters of the downstairs, small is okay, but bigger is better.
We pear shapes finally have something—apart from our ginormous glutes—to rub in the faces of our slim-about-the-hip sisters.That’s right, baby, whether you’re genetically blessed or forged yours in the gym, here are the top eight reasons to love your big booty.
1. Big Butts Are Better to Touch
You know that line in the wedding vows, to have and to hold…it’s about butts. Well, it should be. We all love to touch, hold, and squeeze a juicy double. There’s no denying, there’s something primal-yet-sweet when bae gets his giant paws on our rear end.
2. The Bigger, the Healthier
Studies show women with big bums have a lower risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes. They also have low cholesterol even with a higher than average BMI. As long as that fat stays off your belly and firmly on your butt, hips and thighs, you’re likely to live longer than the skinny minnies.
3. Better Control Around Food
The adipose tissue (fat) stored in the butt and hips areas share production of the hormone leptin. This hormone is responsible for regulating appetite and decreasing hunger by telling the brain the body has enough fat. So, in this case, fat bottomed girls do take the cake, although they only take a little bit.
