It's becoming more desirable to have a bigger butt. According to a poll taken by NYDailyNews.com, the perfect female body would have Michelle Obama's arms, Jessica Alba's flat abs, and Jennifer Lopez's lean legs and "bubble butt." More women are seeking out plastic surgeons for butt augmentation, reports Cosmeticsurgery.com. But if you want a bigger butt, you may be able to do it naturally. You can do various exercises that can build the gluteal muscles. These exercises need no equipment or weights and you can do them in the comfort of your home.

Do forward lunges. Stand with your feet slightly apart to start. Step forward with your right leg and shift your hips forward and down so that the thigh of your right leg is parallel to the floor and the knee of your right leg is directly over your ankle. Also, draw your left knee down toward the floor so that your left shin is parallel to the floor. To return to your starting position, spring your right leg up from the lunge by pushing through your leg and foot and placing it next to your left foot.
