Think you need a butt lift?
I’m going to show you how to tell if you have a nice butt or not…
I saw a fitness expert talking about this on one of the morning news shows.
She said you should put a pencil beneath your butt cheek, up next to your thigh like this.
- If the pencil falls to the ground, then you have a nice booty. (Or at least an adequately lifted one.)
- If the pencil stays in place, then you need to do some exercises to firm and lift your butt.
Supposedly, the pencil test theory was started by the Brazillian Butt Lift folks.
They recommend doing the pencil test in order to determine if your butt is already in shape to begin with, or if the exercises you’ve been doing are working or not.
Sounds good to me! See the pencil test in action here:
In this video, Jennifer Love Hewitt talks about the pencil test:
Now, if you really want to get your butt into shape, a fellow pencil test taker recommends these exercises for the best-looking booty:
- Kickbacks/Cable Extensions
- Lunges – Stationary, WALKING!!!, Reverse
- Step Ups (MAJOR results!)
- Donkey Kicks
- Squats– Sumo, Regular, Bulgarian Split
- Hamstring Curls
- Hip Extensions
Or… just perfect your booty pop pose instead!

I like to help people find clever ways to do things that will save time & money — so I write about "outside the box" Beauty Tips and Beauty Hacks that most people wouldn't think of. With beauty products (like hair care, skincare, and makeup) and personal care items (like teeth issues, body odor, undergarments, and <em>other</em> topics that very few people enjoy talking about)… I share my own honest firsthand experiences that I think others would appreciate hearing about and find helpful. Especially for topics that are usually very "private" and most people don't like to talk about publicly! When I'm not trying new beauty products and organizing all my "stuff", you'll find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
