She started a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) revolution. And in a seemingly effortless way, she continues to stay relevant and up the game she created. In this years’ Met Gala in New York, Kim K arrived in a dress that set the bar again. But how did she create that butt to waist ratio?!
How to create a butt to waist ratio like Kim K?
First, I think it helps that Kim K naturally has a big butt. I don’t believe she had a BBL and maybe not even liposuction. Her butt is genetic. Her mom and sisters all have a healthy derriere. However, if you don’t naturally have the full buttocks you’ve always wanted, there are options.
You could get a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL). That’s when your plastic surgeon takes fat via liposuction from your abdomen, flanks, back, thighs or anywhere fat is available. The fat is then injected into the buttocks to provide more fullness, projection and fill in the “hip dips.” The waist is narrowed at the same time as the BBL due to liposuction of the waist.
If you don’t have enough fat, options include butt implants or fillers like Sculptra. Butt implants have a high risk of infection so beware. And Sculptra filler? You can hear my opinion on its limitations in this video here.
So you’ve got a big butt now, how do you get the waist so narrow for that Kim K butt to waist ratio?! I believe in her case, she’s continuing to use a waist trainer. I say “continuing” because we know she has used one in the past. A waist trainer works. But only in the short term. The corset like waist trainer can narrow the waist if worn for a several weeks prior to your big event. And it’s possible or even probable that in addition to the waist trainer, she’s wearing a body corset under her Met Gala dress.
Last theory. Aside from waist training, maybe she’s not wearing a corset at all. But instead, she’s wearing a lower body suit that has padding in the hip area (like padding in football pants) to make her butt and hips appear wider and therefore make her waist look narrower by comparison!
At the end of the day, a butt to waist ratio like hers requires either genetics, surgery, tight garments, commitment and discipline. It’s not as easy as it looks!
