The INSIDER Summary:
- #HipDips is the latest body-positivity movement to go viral on social media.
- Hip dips are indentations that occur when one’s hip bone is located higher than his or her femur, causing fat and muscle to cave inward.
- The trend celebrates all types of women’s bodies.
- Women are sharing empowering photos of their hip dips online.
The latest hashtag to go viral on Instagram, which we first read about on Refinery29, does just that. #HipDips is taking over with thousands of women sharing photos of what’s been medically coined “trochanteric depressions.”
Although they don’t make for a rounded-hip hourglass shape, these dips or depressions are rather common. If your hip bone sits a tad higher than your femur, causing fat and muscle to cave inward, you’re more likely to notice them.
