Personal trainer, Kelly-Marie Bakewell, says she's had clients ask her how to get rid of them.
“They are very normal! A lot of women have them… please don’t scrutinize yourself so much! As you can see there isn’t really a muscle there to exercise!” she writes. “Gluteus medius isn’t a meaty muscle, it wouldn’t really be able to be built up to help with a dip. If the dip is from excess fat then exercise may help but again fat storage can be genetic. It’s mostly down to high wide hips. Be proud ladies.”
And while this may be bad news to those who were holding out hope for a fitness-fix, it is leading a number of women to accept and appreciate their bodies the way they are.
“In recent years, proportionate hour glass bodies have been glamorized in the media heavily … but I have realized that I will never have a perfect hour-glass shape because I have very prominent hip dips (even though I do carry more fat in my lower body). There’s absolutely nothing wrong with it, but it is one of those things I don’t absolutely love about my body,” @jenneydoll writes. “However, I accept it and I’m learning to love all my imperfections because that’s what makes us human.”
