Are hip dips natural?

Yes! Hip dips are completely natural! Hip dips occur in the area where your skin is attached to the deeper part of the bone on your thighs. This bone is called the trochanter. Depending on the distribution and amount of muscle and fat in that area, these indentations may appear less or more noticeable in certain individuals. The width of hips and the shape of pelvis also play a key role in making your hip dips more or less prominent. Hip dips may also become more apparent when you wear certain kinds of clothes.

So, don’t worry! Everyone has hip dips, the only difference is that in some bodies it is more visible than in others. Embracing your body can at times be difficult, we understand that. But the time it takes to work on this is completely worth it.

How to get rid of hip dips

You cannot get rid of hip dips, this is how your body is built and changing fat distribution or bone structure is nearly impossible. However, as we understand it is a process, we have collected are a few practical tips which can help you reduce hip dip visibility, if you really want to;

  • You can avoid wearing clothes that are too tight for you, as well as low waistbands that tend to cut your figure into two.
  • You can wear tops that are longer or those that have more flow.
  • Try loose fitting clothes, such as ruffled dresses, A-line skirts or dresses etc.
  • Some women opt for compression underwear.
  • Sticky hips can be excellent options to fill up your hip dents. They are simple to use, as they have an adhesive backing that you can simply stick in your underwear. Some panties also have pockets that can hold up your hip padding.
  • There are certain exercises which can be useful in helping get rid of hip dips; giving you a more rounded body shape. Although they may not work for all, sometimes they can bulk this area up and fill those gaps. Targeting the gluteus maximus may add volume to your entire butt area and give you a lifted and more rounded shape. Some exercises may include; side lunges, clamshells, band abductions, curtsy lunges, glute bridges, deadlifts, hip thrusts, squats and split squats.

The thing is, in the end as we said, hip dips are pretty much impossible to get rid of. But we always recommend doing exercise and eating well in order to live and healthy and happy life!

Hi Allison,

You can find celebrities with hip dips and so many have them, everyone from JLo to Selena Gomez. However, we should not look to celebrities for our own validation. We encourage body positivity and acceptance. Just because none of your friends have them (or are good at hiding them!), doesn't mean you are unattractive. You are beautiful and what matters most is how you feel, not any body else.
