What Are Hip Dips?

Before anything else, let’s clarify whether you do have hip dips or… you’re just being paranoid with your Google results. Hip dips A.K.A. hip dents, are inward curves on both sides, just below the hip bone which may or may not be noticeable. If you have muffin tops, they can definitely make your hip dips more visible than they should be. Just a little fun fact: hip dips go by different names such as violin hips, high hips, shelf hips, figure 8 body shape and spoon body shape.

How Do Hip Dips Come About?

To understand how hip dips occur, let’s have a quick Science class, shall we? In anatomical terminology, hip dents are actually known as “trochanteric depression”.

First and foremost, note that hip dips are not a deformity.  Your hip dips exist simply because of how your pelvis is shaped: by having high hips. If your pelvis is positioned up high and wide, it could indicate that there is a slight “dip” between your hip bones and where your femur (thigh bone) starts.
