Hip Dips & Ways to Minimize Appearance

Hip Dips & Ways to Minimize Appearance

If your body goes in, out, in again and out, then you are familiar with Hips dips.

Hips dips are inward depression along the side of your body below the hip bone. It is also called Violin hips. Where the curved have indentations, like a dent on the body. These indentations might be slight or conspicuous. They are not abnormal albeit not common in all body types. Some people have it while others don’t and sometimes, they are quite subtle.

Hips dips appear as a result of NATURAL ANATOMY and it’s something you shouldn’t be ashamed of. Essentially because you don’t have control over how your body was formed. There are a couple of exercises that are used to minimize the appearance of hip dips.


There is often this misconception that hips dips are a sign of how healthy one is. However, as ascertained before, hips dips are associated with the shape of your bones and have minimal to nothing to do with your health. It is from the shape of your bones and there’s not so much you can do to change it. And because your pelvis is different from that of others, your hip dips will equally be unique and different from that of others.


Some people are of the opinion that hips dips can never be gotten rid of, but this is not entirely true as there are exercises to help you minimize the appearance. Yes, they are a permanent part of your physiology, therefore it might seem difficult to get rid of them. However, you can reduce their appearance using some exercises. It’s worthy to note that exercises that work your quads and hip flexors are to be avoided. Instead, concentrate on exercises that work your backside thus avoiding the dips.

Do not focus on hips dips exercises alone, rather than focusing on one body part, your lower-body workouts should be on hips, thighs, abdominals, and buttocks.

  • Side hip openers: Targeting your outer thighs, hips and side buttocks is the aim here. Be sure to keep your weight evenly distributed between your hands and knees.
  • Standing kickback lunges: This exercise also works your thighs and buttocks and is great at providing balance and stability in the body.
  • Standing side leg raises: This builds up the muscle along the sides of your hips and butts. Ensure the movement is consistent and controlled.
  • Squats: Squats are a great way to build and tone up your thighs, hips and butts. Keep your back straight and your toes facing forward.
  • Side lunges: This exercise works out your entire leg. They help to redefine your hips and buttocks.

Finally, if your body curves in a bit under your hip bones, don’t be frightened about it. They are perfectly normal and shouldn’t cause you to worry because there’s very little you can do to change it permanently. Rather embrace it and use lower-body exercises to make them less visible.
