The size of one's butt may say a lot about the overall health of a person. It is commonly believed that fat storages anywhere are terrible for the body, but this may not be entirely accurate.
Researchers have known for awhile that where the fat is stored in the body determines the health of the person. Fat storages near the chest or in the trunk of the body are far more dangerous than fat stored in the butt or the hips.
Fat in the hips "â¦keeps the fatty acids away from the heart, the arteries, and the liver to lower your risk of heart disease and other debilitating problems like diabetes. Since your body is ultimately programmed to decide whether to store the fat in the butt region or the stomach region, it is said that, in women, the hormones that direct and distribute fat are actually doing this to protect the heart by building up the buttocks."

It has also been noted that those with slightly bigger backsides may also be more intelligent.
"Results found women with bigger backsides tend to have lower levels of cholesterol and are more likely to produce hormones to metabolize sugar. Having a big butt requires an excess of Omega-3 fats, which have been proven to catalyze brain development." (Source) In other words, big butts are associated with higher Omega-3s. And Omega-3s are known to promote brain health.
So having a bigger butt than average is not necessarily a bad thing, but there are some things one can do to help remove some excess fat from that area and make the bottom a bit stronger and the body healthier.
