    Question Can someone check my grammar please?

    The lady on the far left has been fitted with cork rump. It is recognisable due to the overly exaggerated bum that is three times the size of her head.

    the 'bum', what is another way to say it without sounding too childish?

    Thank you.

    the image i'm referring to is:
