Forget the traditional selfie, 2021 is seeing the rising popularity of the BELFIE, or if you’re not familiar with the term, bum selfie. The popularity of photographing our posterior stems from the selfie queen herself, Kim Kardashian West, and if we had her booty we would be photographing ours every five minutes too. The Belfie is loved by celebs, gym bunnies and travel bloggers with Belfie’s everywhere from the gym to the beach.
For the most part, Belfie’s are about understanding your angles than they are about having a naturally gravity defying behind. So how exactly do you take the perfect bum selfie? Here at House Of Peach ® we have gathered our top tips for perfecting that peachy picture.
PREP STEP: GET THOSE GLUTES PUMPED
Pumping your glutes before you take a Belfie is a great quick fix when getting ready for your sexy snap. Doing around 3-4 sets of squats, lunges and hip thrusts will get your glutes going which will help to make your booty to look fuller and rounder ready for your big booty close up.
Getting your outfit right for a Belfie can impact your results drastically. Choosing a well-fitting and uplifting bottom half to your Belfie outfit is a great way to boost your booty shot. House Of Peach ® have a great range of butt lifting and shape enhancing scrunch bum leggings that work wonders, so you don’t have to.

Arching makes a massive difference to any belfie and another angle secret that can make your butt look fuller. No matter what position or pose you choose, be sure to arch your back to enhance your booty. If you want to take it to next level, you can also suck in your stomach at the same time to really get some height into your frame which in turn lifts your butt.
Just by scrolling through your IG explore page, you will see this pose is probably the most popular when it comes to Belfies. Yes, any Belfie pro will tell you that twisting your body to expose your booty is the best way to get the perfect pose. Whilst twisting will pump up your posterior, by putting your shoulders and hips on a different axis you get the illusion of an itty-bitty waistline to really give you the ultimate Belfie.
BONUS TIP: FILTERS ARE YOUR FRIEND
A good filter can make a break your selfie and can really help to enhance your shape. Shadowing is your best friend when it comes to boosting your Belfie, ensure that you don’t just concentrate on your booty, making sure the rest of the picture is in equal proportion and shading is important to get that seamless snap.
