These days, being told you have a big butt is not an insult. For decades, models and women in general were under intense social pressure to be skinny, but the increasing popularity and fame of apple-bottomed celebs like Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian have helped to popularize the big booty as the most sought-after body part. As the late Freddie Mercury and Queen once sang, "fat-bottomed girls, you make the rocking world go round," and in a big way. Since the early 2000s, big butts have permeated popular culture, from music (Beyonce, Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea come to mind, of course), movies and television, and now to the burgeoning world of social media.
After so many years of watching stick-thin models walk down the catwalks, the world seems ready to finally embrace curves again, and hey, we couldn’t be happier about it. “Moderation in all things” might be good and wise advice for many areas in life...but not when it comes to the booty. Why walk the middle path with butts? Why not enjoy those butts that are excessive? This is definitely one case where too much of a good thing is wonderful.
Instagram is one of the most popular social media platforms for models to show the world what they got, and we’ve rounded up a list of those who have some of the best rear ends on the internet. Here is a list of 10 models with the biggest and best-shaped backsides on Instagram you need to know about right now.
10 Jessica Kylie
Jessica Kylie is easily one of the most underrated models on the entire internet. Jessica, who grew up in Houston, Texas, and is of Irish and Latin descent, is identified by her official website as a “culturally diverse, curvaceous bombshell.” The cover, fashion and swimwear model formerly went by the name Jessica Rabbit or Miss Rabbit, and with her large chest, insane curves and voluptuous butt, it’s easy to see why. She has 2 million followers on Instagram on her therealjkylie account and has a secondary account called jessicakylie_uncut with an additional 650,000 followers. She is also featured on an account called Kandi Kinis as a model for their swimwear. Her curvy form has graced the covers of many magazines and you might not be shocked to learn that she has also appeared in many hip-hop music videos.
9 Brittany Renner
Brittany Renner is a fitness model and Instagram personality. She was born on February 26, 1992, in the state of Mississippi. She was raised in Ocean Springs, MS, and attended Jackson State University, though she would later move to Los Angeles. Renner has made a name for herself on Instagram, where she has gained a huge fanbase of 1.5 million followers. She frequently uses the hashtag #FitThickArmy, referring to her toned abs and bountiful backside. She is one of the most active fitness models, frequently providing health, nutritional, and exercise tips through her various social media accounts. She even has her own app on iTunes that helps people with diets and workout plans. On top of all that, she blessed the world by doing an extremely NSFW video shoot for World Star Hip Hop (WSHH), leaving men everywhere celebrating.
8 Alejandra Gil
The fitness model from Colombia gained fame from posting exercise videos and selfies on Instagram. Since then, she has gained over 1.2 million followers. Her most prominent feature has gotten a lot of media attention in recent years, and she has been featured in a rather steamy video for World Star Hip Hop (WSHH), which left very little to the imagination. While there’s not too much information about her on the internet, she certainly has no problem showing off her body. If you want to see more of her, check out her YouTube channel and WSHH, though she is most active on her Instagram account.
7 Mizz Twerksum
When you consider she is one-half of the duo known as Twerk Team, are you really shocked to see her on the list? The Atlanta-based “dance” company are officially professional booty shakers, with their videos racking up millions of hits on YouTube. The Twerk Team can also be booked to perform at your parties or events if you’re interested. Mizz Twerksum has over 1 million followers on her Instagram account, of which roughly 90% consists of videos of her expertly shaking her shapely rear end while wearing very tight shorts. Her Twitter handle, fittingly, is #QueenofTwerk and after seeing her impressive body of work, it’s hard to disagree.
6 Mulher Melancia (Andressa Soares)
Andressa Soares is better known by her stage name, Mulher Melancia, or the Watermelon Woman (three guesses as to how she got that name. Go ahead, we’ll wait). The Brazilian native is a dancer, singer, and model who has graced the cover of Playboy multiple times in her home country which sold millions of copies. She has received attention for her assets in the United States as well, appearing in a documentary for VICE, where it was claimed she had “the biggest ass in Brazil.” Whether or not that’s true, one thing can’t be denied: her butt is quite impressive.
5 Gracyanne Barbosa
Brazilian samba dancer, fitness model, and smoking hot babe Gracyanne Barbosa once attended law school before starting her work as a dancer. Since then, she’s been one of the foremost performers at the Rio Carnival and São Paulo Carnival. She also appeared on the cover of Brazil’s Playboy and the cover of Revista Sexy. In 2012, she gained media attention when photos and videos of her squatting with weights amounting to an incredible 450 lbs. were uploaded to social media, sparking an uproar as to the authenticity of the plates she was using. One thing’s for sure - with near-daily updates and a whopping 3.3 million followers on her Instagram account, if you like muscles and sculpted butts on women, you are in for a treat.
4 Jen Selter
You can’t make a list of the best big butts on Instagram and not include Jen Selter. It’s simply not done in polite society. At this point her name is practically synonymous with popular butts on social media and her fine behind has gotten her 9.3 million Instagram followers, The New Yorker is famous entirely thanks to her butt, becoming a self-made celebrity through her social media accounts. The fit Selter is always in her videos working out, almost always in yoga pants and tight-fitting gym gear. These days you can also find her in magazines and in various television appearances.
3 Cecibel Vogel
Okay, time for a confession: almost nothing at all is known about Cecibel Vogel, a.k.a. The Real Miss Louboutin. Where she lives, where she’s from, what she does for a living, or if “Cecibel” is even her real name. But we do know one thing: Miss Vogel has some of the most unreal curves on the internet. 1.3 million followers tune in to see her skimpy selfies, and to give a collective “dayum!” while doing so. The insanely curvaceous Cecibel is certainly not shy, and neither are her followers, who seem to have established a cult of personality around her body. Though who could blame them?
2 Eva Andressa
Another Brazilian fitness model, another round and toned onion booty. Eva Andressa is one of the most popular faces in Brazilian bodybuilding. She is extremely popular on social media: her Facebook page has over 9 million fans, and her Instagram account has 3.2 million. She has won several titles for her fitness career, and continues to grace magazine covers with her abs and fabulous rear end. Of course, Eva's athletic accomplishments has led to her being sponsored by Athletica Nutrition. If you didn't think she looked sexy enough in the above photo, you'll be glad to know that in 2013 she posed nude for Revista Sexy magazine.
1 Kathy Bentley
Little is known about Kathy Bentley, except that she isn't shy about the size of her breasts and derriere and she knows how to flaunt them. Though she only has 125 posts on Instagram, she has 3.5 million followers and many jaw-dropping shots of her ample curves and butt. She seems the embodiment of a Miami beach girl, with long hair, tanned skin, omnipresent makeup, and a classic hourglass figure. When the curvy Cuban model’s pictures first gained traction on internet forums and memes, many people thought they were photoshopped. Luckily for us, her body is all real and fantastic.
