What Are Hip Dips?
Hip Dips – oh well, another new word for a completely natural body part that is frowned upon on social media.
Haven’t we had enough of that already?
After Thigh Gap, Ab Crack, Bikini Bridge or Collarbone Challenge, it should be enough with the unrealistic, unnatural body ideals that we’re supposed to emulate, shouldn’t it?
But no, after one comes the next: Hip Dips. This is not a new barbecue sauce, but the translated so-called “dents on the hip”, which refers to a hip curve between the pelvis and the base of the thighs.
Where the hip bone ends and the thigh bone begins, there is neither a muscle nor another bone in between. The result? The so-called hip dips develop.
Although this is completely normal and more than human, many women feel uncomfortable with it, because the ideal figure of the “hourglass figure” so strived for on social media is interrupted by it.
But here’s a little reminder: there is not a single woman in the world who naturally doesn’t have hip dips! Yes, in one it’s less pronounced than in the other, but everyone has it! And that is also completely okay!
Are Hip Dips Attractive: 4 Reasons Why
1. They Make You Look Athletic
Let me tell you one thing as a person who has been going to the gym 6x a week for almost 3 years: hip dips make you look shredded and very defined.
Especially in the summer when I do a little cut (calorie deficit to look more defined), I look forward to my hip dips one of the most to see them again more.
Because the little “dent” looks especially from the side more than aesthetic and shows that you have worked hard in the gym and they make you look super athletic.
In fact, in the second picture on the right, you can see well that the various butt muscles come out more defined and put your body very attractively in the scene. Trust me.
2. You Look Natural
In a world where shapewear (sometimes with pads) has become not just a fashion trend but an industry in its own right, and surgeries, as well as fillers, have become a desire of younger and younger girls, it’s always nice to stand by yourself and show off your naturalness.
My grandma always said: “A beautiful person doesn’t disfigure anything” and I still thank her every day for this phrase. Because every little intervention in your naturalness is unnecessary and covers up the beauty behind it.
A beautiful person doesn’t need to hide and isn’t more beautiful without hip dips – they have only lost charisma because they no longer stand by their naturalness.
BUT: Of course, this body part can make you very dissatisfied or disturb you strongly. If this should be the case and you are aware of the dangers of an intervention, for example, there are still ways to fix this problem area.
However, the main point here is that you shouldn’t feel uncomfortable or insecure about it. Because they are completely normal and show that you stand by your naturalness. A quality that many men find very attractive.
So girls, don’t hide your hip dips, learn to love them!
It Shows that You’re Open-Minded
Also, hip dips show that you’re open. You aren’t ashamed of them or trying to hide them.
They belong to you just like any other part of your body and they’re perfectly okay.
If you stand by them, you’ll notice that you suddenly become much more open and relaxed – and you’ll gradually become more so with men.
And whoever doesn’t find that attractive has only himself to blame.
3. It Shows That You’re Confident
If you accept your flaws and imperfect sides, you’ll become more and more self-confident over time and you’ll also be able to handle criticism much better. – Not that you should ever get criticism for it, but if you find yourself uncomfortable in a situation because of it, you can catch yourself quickly.
Self-confidence comes from recognizing that we are all not perfect.
After all, do you know a person who has had a lot done to them? Botox here, Hyaluron there. Does that sound familiar to you? It does to me, too… And now think about what these people have in common…
They’re usually anything but self-confident. They often suffer greatly from a false self-perception, in that they don’t find almost everything about themselves beautiful – and this circle of dissatisfaction quickly becomes pathological.
That’s why it’s better to learn early on that these parts of your body are perfectly okay, even if you don’t find them sooo beautiful than to slip into this cycle afterward.
In addition, a good dose of self-confidence is not only super helpful but also more than attractive.
4. Most Men Don’t Even Notice It
Ask 10 men about hip dips and I bet you most of them don’t even know what it is.
And if they do, they don’t even notice it.
That’s why you shouldn’t care too.
What Body Type has Hip Dips?
I’m sorry to disappoint you, but it’s just wrong to say that certain body shapes are “more prone” to hip dips.
They can occur with any body shape and aren’t related to it – they may just be less pronounced in one than another.
Are Hip Dips Rare?
Hip dips are more common than you might think. Almost everyone has them, and it’s perfectly normal.
The only difference is that they’re less pronounced in some people. But basically, almost everyone has them – and even men too.
It’s only because of the position of the hip bones and the genetically determined distribution of fat that they’re more common in women.
How Do Hip Dips Look Curvy?
Due to the bone of the hip, which thus heralds the end of the narrowest area of the body – the waist, hip dips naturally create a silhouette and a feminine curve.
By specifically training the upper butt muscle – the gluteus medius – it’s relatively easy to make this curve even more pronounced.
In addition, silhouette-shaping cuts and accessories such as belts help you to showcase your feminine curves.
Why Did I Develop Hip Dips?
Through your birth.
No really, hip dips are quite normal and we have had them since birth. Gradually as our bones get bigger and stronger, the hip bone and thigh bone naturally get bigger too. Accordingly, it is then that the gap occurs.
