Nope. Hips dips aren’t a new dance trend! Hip dips are in those gentle inward curves found below your hips and above your thighs. The latest body trend that’s gaining popularity over social media. Your hip dips may be deep, or they may be subtle. Hate them or love them, that’s for you to decide.

What are Hip Dips?

‘Hip dips are naturally occurring, inward curves. Emphasis on “Naturally occurring.” ‘Hip dips are caused by the shape of your pelvis. Although not everyone will have noticeable hip dips, if reduced to a skeleton, all of us would have an indentation where the hip bone meets the top of the thigh. Hip dips are a normal part of your body’s structure.’ says David Wiener, training specialist.

Good or bad?

A common assumption is that hip dips – or a lack thereof – is a sign of how fit you are. However hip dips are associated with the shape of your bones and are unique to everyone.

Does everyone have hip dips?

‘Hip dips are not a sign of being healthy, unhealthy, overweight or underweight,’ says Wiener. ‘Although the amount of body fat you have can make hip dips more noticeable and they can be the result of having a higher level of muscle mass, it’s important to remember that hip dips are a part of your bone structure, and while you can enhance your body shape through exercise and diet, you cannot change your bone structure.’

How do you get rid of hip dips?

While exercising to build muscle mass and reduce fat can help minimise their appearance, it won’t make them completely go away. Unless you opt for surgery.

Should I worry about my hip dips?

No one bit. Celebrate your body! ‘Obsessing over any part of your body, especially those which cannot be changed, is potentially very damaging to your health,’ says Wiener. ‘It’s important for women to learn to love their body, rather than being continually determined to change it.’

We’re in agreement to that! 🌸
