It sounds like a new fitness or dance move but the newly coined term 'hip dips' actually refer to skeletal structure and the growing trend is helping countless women accept their bodies the way they are.
Of course we're all aware of what has quickly become the long overdue body positivity movement—and it's come just in the nick of time to squash concerns about thigh gaps and public fat shaming—but this social campaign is now taking on another physical characteristic, one women have been struggling to rid themselves of in vain.
You see, hip dips (and their accompanying viral hashtag) are the recently named indents just below a woman's hips and, contrary to what many perfectionists had hoped for, they are impossible to get rid of through exercise.
“So yesterday I learned that #hipdips or #violenhips[sp] are a thing,” wrote @paulagoestobrizzle. “Like it’s a body type. I’ve spent my life lusting after perfectly rounded hips, when actually it’s to do with my skeleton. Nothing to do with weight or fitness. CRAZY.”
