HUMANS have a natural indentation where the hip bone meets the top of the thigh.

Women are being told that these so-called ‘hip dips’ aren’t a problem, and don’t need to be ‘fixed’ – despite some body-shamers saying otherwise.

Says it all really - 'hip-dips' are part of your hip bones and don't need 'correcting'

What are hip dips?

Despite the ghastly name, so-called ‘hip dips’ are not a sign of being healthy, unhealthy, overweight or underweight, say experts.

That’s because they’re completely natural, explains David Wiener, training specialist for the Freeletics fitness app.

‘Hip dips’ are a naturally occurring feature when women have an inward curve below the hips and above the thighs.

David explains in more detail to Women’s Health: “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.”

What causes hip dips?

Hip dips have become – for some – a derogatory phrase used to describe the indentation that may or may not exist between your hips and your thighs.

They “are associated with the shape of your bones – something that cannot be changed.

“And, because your pelvis is unique, your hips will look completely different from everyone else and that includes your hip dips, too,” notes a body-positive Women’s Health.

How do I get rid of hip dips?

While some people like to airbrush these natural indents from pics, there’s no need to, say loads of supportive women across social media, along with coaches and health/fitness experts.

Plus, these ‘dips’ are associated with the shape of your actual bones, which can’t be altered.

As fitness guru David Wiener advises: “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.”

Women’s Health adds: “While exercising to build muscle mass and lose body fat can help minimise their appearance, it won’t make them completely go away.

“That’s something to make peace with now – there’s more to life than hip dips.”

David echoes many other experts in recommending that “obsessing over any part of your body, especially those which cannot be changed, is potentially very damaging to your health.

“It’s important for women to try to love their bodies, rather than being continually determined to change them.”
