Some clothed, some bare—and all equally deserving of recognition
By Andrew Daniels

The belfie is a delightful portmanteau of butt and selfie. It’s the definition for what happens when a lovely lady snaps a saucy photo of her exposed booty, posts it to Instagram, and drives the world wild. Though the act of sharing one’s perky backside has been around since Instagram’s early days, the term has only recently become the new normal in our feeds. As the nomenclature bourgeoned, so did the practice. Every time we opened our feed, there was another perfect posterior, beckoning you to oogle before giving it a double-tap.

Plenty of celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, and every other Kardashian, led the charge, followed by the likes of Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Doutzen Kroes and more. The more that famous faces turned the camera away from pouty lips to plump bottoms, so did regular sexy women, those without reality shows and record deals, all to equal applause. Bring on butts of all shapes, sizes, and colors. The butt selfie welcomes all with a voyeuristic spirit, a camera phone and a mirror. The butt selfie does not discriminate.

Here, these 7 beautiful belfies prove it. Some are clothed, some are bare. Enjoy.
