"Hip dips" – this phrase has recently been frequently searched on social media. What does this mysterious term mean? In a loose translation, it refers to "hips with dimples." It describes characteristic indentations primarily resulting from anatomy. Some women desire them, while others wish to hide them.

"Hip dips" is a phrase that is circulating on social media like crazy. It also goes by "violin hips." This is because it refers to hips resembling a violin's shape. The trick lies in the characteristic indentations and dimples that are a source of pride for many women and insecurity for others.

Where do "hip dips" come from?

It's worth knowing that the occurrence of "hip dips" depends on body structure. From an anatomical perspective, women with these dimples tend to have relatively high-set hip bones.

Muscles also play a role. More developed thigh muscles highlight the "hip dips," while diligently performed buttock exercises can make the indentations less visible. Additionally, it's about the distribution of body fat.

Love your "hip dips." Even models have them

For some women with "violin hips," this feature will impact their silhouette's appearance. Either way, it's worth accepting and unconditionally loving your body. You can find many guides on how to get rid of "hip dips" on the internet.

However, if you don't feel like putting in the effort, you don't have to. After all, beauty standards regularly change, and following temporary trends on social media, especially concerning body appearance, isn't worth it.

One might argue that constantly looking at retouched photos of models and Instagram influencers is detrimental. However, consider Bella Hadid, who proudly embraces her hips with dimples. So, rid yourself of any complexes on this topic as soon as possible.
