Shapely women are being judged by butt enthusiasts around the world in the Miss BumBum Brazil competition.
The saucy nationwide competition from the country renowned for its love of the exposed and tanned bottom is now in its 2nd year.
Buttock implants are strictly forbidden in this competition which celebrates Brazilian women with impressive curves.
Competitors have now been narrowed down to the final 15 following votes online. The finalist head to São Paulo to compete for the slightly underwhelming grand prize of $2000.
What do you think? Is this a praise-worthy celebration of naturally curvy womanly bodies, or a shamefully sexist display of objectification?
