How can you tell if your butt is fat or muscle?

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).
