It is going to be fat on top of muscle, on top of pelvis. To find out how thick the fat is, just grab a handful of skin and the fat will be attached to it. To feel the muscle below the skin & fat, just flex the muscles of your bum and you'll feel the muscles contract (imagine someone's about to give you a wedgie and you reflexively contract your whole bum - that's the flex I'm takling about).

Is there any way a girl can get her butt bigger?

Sure you can, there's a few different ways. Fat: You can get fat from what you eat but you will get fat everywhere unless you research witch foods will specifically add fat to your breasts and well as butt. Muscle: Looks really good to see a girl with a butt of muscle. The butt muscle is called the "glute" one for each butt obviously. Do things like squats to get a lot of muscle on your butt. You now your butt got bigger when it feels sore... Because you hurt your butt by working out and your body will make it bigger so next time you won't get hurt, there for you must work out harder each time your butt gets sore. Overall, I'd say a little bit of fat on a butt looks okay, but it's not long before too much fat and your butt (and boobs, belly, etc) get wrinkly, which is gross. So, a little fat is nice, but mostly muscle, and do sit ups if you want to flatten your stomach so your butt would stick out better.
