    Angry Uneven Butt Cheeks

    Here's my problem: My right butt cheek is slightly lower (or maybe a bit bigger?) than my left. It's not devastatingly obvious, but when I put on my bikini bottom, it's accentuated because either I have to pull the suit lower to cover the cheek or I have more butt showing at the bottom. I know that squats and leg curls, etc are good for toning the butt, but if I'm trying to help my right cheek match the left, should I work it out more? Will that just make it bigger (hence it's lower placement could be more pronounced) or will it help lift? Also, am I the only one with this issue? Feels like the dumbest thing to be worried about, but it does bug me. Any suggestions?

    I'd work on the right cheek...lunges etc...or when your standing put your leg backwards and do circles...stuff like that and see what happens.

    Everyone has some difference from one side of their body to the other. Unfortunately some have more than others. The issue is whether the difference is due to bone structure, connective tissue, muscle or fat deposits. If it's due to bone structure or connective tissue there is probably not much you can do about it if you are over 18. If it is muscle of fat deposit related then you can change it, but as you noted it may only get more noticable. MOst people find that adding muscle mass helps to hide imbalances. I would expect that other people notice it a lot less than you do. I had a friend once who insisted that one side of her body was much larger than the other, but I could never see it, and it certainly did not detract from her attractiveness.

    Leg curls are a waste of your time, and they do very little for your glutes anyway.

    I highly recommend lunges in all variations (walking, forward, reverse, side to side, crossover, etc). Always start with the underdeveloped side first, so that your weak side sets the standard.

    Smile THank you all.

    I appreciate the advice from everyone. I will be giving it my best at lunges and leg circles. I'm pretty certain this is just a muscle or fat issue. I know this is a possibly trivial issue, so I am extra thankful that you would take the time to reply.

    Being a newbie to this site and to fitness training, I wanted to make sure that I understand the benefit of leg curls. I've been attempting to research and learn about the best exercises for what I'm looking to do. While they aren't good for glutes themselves, won't they develop the hamstrings, effectively lifting the butt area? My goal is to lift my butt so that my legs look longer and also round it out (I am of part Asian decent, so my behind is fuller than typical, however I'd like to focus on making it more so).

    Again, thanks to all for being so helpful with my first post.

    Talking no way!

    good one, but i think thongs were created somewhere in the lower levels of hell. but that's only because I'm from the gender they're meant to be worn by.

    here's a quirky thing that i've always thought about when I try on a thong. first of all, i'm on the slender petite side of the many wonderful shapes that women come in... but i've always had flashing images of those things that sumo wrestlers wear! don't know why...but even if they were comfortable...that image is enough for me to steer clear!

    did I say quirky? okay, disturbed. fine, i'll say it first!
