Bubble Butt

Until recently, the bottom has been the source of continual angst for women. According to pop culture, when pants/bikini/dress/ok-everything shopping, women will universally utter the words: "Does my butt look big in this?"*
* [Note, no one has actually researched the veracity of this, but I guess we've all said it one time or another, which is good enough for pop culture].

I actually don't worry so much about my butt, I prefer to focus on more angsty topics such as hips, but it has always been a thing for ladies to worry about. Thanks to round-bottomed-and-proud divas such as Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce, Nikki Minaj, Kim Kardashian, Christina Milan and Iggy Azalea (representing the Caucasian corner), the bottom has recently reached another type of pop culture status: it is now a phenomenon to applaud, exalt and draw attention to, rather than its erstwhile pop culture status of thing to hide, bemoan and generally downplay.

Bottoms are now the toast of the town

We now have songs glorifying butts, butt implants are becoming increasingly common as surgical procedures and now ... (drum roll) ... we have padded panties that chicken fillet-ify your butt. Little pocket breads of silicone can now do what loaves of bread have always promised to do: round out your bottom, give you more junk in your trunk and generally invite lots of lustful mens' Anacondas in your direction.

Love My Bubbles is one such purveyor of these treats to slip inside your underpants, boasting on their website the "biggest booty pads ever". How could you resist?

By Royal Queen Bey decree: hips, butts, boobs and waists are back
