    The selfie trend which highlights the arches of the female body has only recently taken over Instagram feeds of followers of many Filipina celebrities.

    Aptly called the “butt over back” (also known as the BOB) selfie, the shot involves capturing the woman’s backside from over her shoulder while on her stomach.

    A slight variation of the so-called belfie (butt selfie), the pose was originally known as the “hump day pose” but it was during the popularity of “BOB” when the internet finally took notice.

    While the term “BOB selfie” was originally coined by Chive Media way back in 2015, it was just recently that it became a trending pose online.

    Check out the hottest BOB selfies from the lovely local celebs in the Philippines as compiled by FHM Philippines:
