Tips to Get Wider hips and Fix Your Hip Dips
Exercise (ideally with resistance bands or weights)
When doing side leg lifts, wear ankle weights to increase the intensity.
Choose from one-pound to eight-pound ankle weights.
You can make squats more intense and effective by using dumbbells.
Choose from 5 to 45-pound dumbbells, taking care to increase weight gradually.
Remember to exercise about 3 times a week to get the best results.
Wear flattering shapewear
This tip for fixing hip dips falls in the “tricks” category.
In my opinion, there is plenty to stress out about already.
Why add hip dips to the mix?
If you’re in a pinch, just grab some Spanx and call it a day!
Opt for something high-waisted to emphasize your waist.
You can also wear nice prints.
Prints have a way of covering up a multitude of sins!
Wear clothes that hang loosely around your hips
Doing so is not only effective in hiding love handles, but also hip dips.
This also creates the illusion that you have wider hips and an hour glass figure.
Avoid jeans that squeeze your waist into a muffin top
Your jeans don’t have to be loose.
But they also shouldn’t be so tight that they emphasize your hip dips.
Also, opt for thicker, higher quality material.
