Bubble butt seems to have begun being applied as a descriptor of a certain type of posterior in the 1970s (bearing in mind that many words are in spoken use for some while before print evidence may be found). We have not yet attached a usage label to this entry, but when we do it will likely be something in the neighborhood of 'slang' or 'vulgar slang'; you should therefore use this term cautiously.

Allen is Bubbs. The nickname appears almost anywhere Allen can put it, on his shower shoes, his batting helmet, his Chevy Bivouac pickup. "Back when I played for Arizona State, we went down and played U of A," he explains. "And those games were always madhouses. Their football players would come down and sit behind the dugout and put saddles on us and ride us like you wouldn't believe. Now, I've been blessed with a rather large derriere. So they called me Bubble Butt. When I got back to the dugout my own guys started calling me Bubbles. It got shortened to Bubbs, and it ended up sticking."
