If you’re a woman blessed with curves then you know how sometimes they tend to do what they want without even asking you. Our hips have a life of their own, sometimes it’s like we’re simply just there for them. However, with time and trial and error, we figure out what works for our body, what flatters us and what we really need to stay away from.
Plus, curvy women have been finally getting the recognition and they deserve for being sexy and fine as hell! Through popular culture, many curvy women in media have embraced their bodies and support and encourage curves. I mean, you’re born with hips, there’s no point trying to change it, just embrace your body. But what does it actually mean if you have wide hips? Well, we’re going to let you in on what having wide hips is all about.
You’re a reproducing dream
I’m not trying to make you sound like you have to start popping out babies because you have wide hips. Though, you should know that biologically speaking, wide hips make you more genetically fertile. Why? This is due to hormone levels in your body. Wide hips suggest that you’ll be able to easily bear children.
Not everything looks good on you
Industry standard models look good in a potato sack because they’re relatively straight from the shoulders down. So, of course, most fashion trends will just look effortlessly on them. But, if you have hips, which most women do, we have to watch what we wear. Low-waisted jeans? I don’t think so. Short skirts? Only if you want to continue pulling it down the entire night. So, though we’re blessed with curves, they come at a small price – not everything is going to suit us – but maybe that’s okay. Imagine our visa bills if everything did?
Don’t even get me started on jeans
Jeans are the worst thing to have been invented for women with curves. When I have to go jean shopping, I literally cringe at the thought of it. I can try on hundreds of pairs, yet, none of them will work. That is unless I get them tailored which is what usually ends up happening. They’re either one size too big in the waist but perfect on the hips or vice versa, it’s never an effortless procedure. So, what ends up happening? I opt for dresses, skirts and of course, leggings.
Hips and thighs go hand-in-hand
If you have wide hips, well, you can almost bet that you’ll have big thighs as well. Is this a bad thing? No! It’s proportionate. If you had no thighs, how would you support your hips? But, I also know that women with wide hips have to buy new pants every couple months. Mine all have holes in the crotch, I mean, when is a company going to make anti-chaffing pants? Come on people, it’s time!
Your hips don’t go out of fashion
Marilyn Monroe, one of the most icon women in fashion was curvy and voluptuous. Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, these are all women who have curves throughout different time periods. Those hips don’t go out of style. Men will always be attracted to wide hips, it’s in their DNA and women will always wish they had a booty like yours. Wide hips will never go out of style, they’re here to stay.
Your hips help set up personal space
No sir, you cannot come close to me because my hips will not allow you to – thank god for that. They kind of act as a personal security guard, defining your personal space. I mean, I’m not complaining. I would rather have my hips nudge someone out of the way than having them in my space.
Yes! You want to know what looks good on a pair of curvy hips? High-waisted clothing. It cinches in at the waist while making all the curves pop! Curvy girls shouldn’t wear overly baggy clothing because it makes us look wider and frumpy. Tighten those clothes up a bit and your curves will be properly accentuated. So, make sure you have at least one pair of high-waisted pants.
Weight loss is a nightmare
Especially if you’re trying to get rid of some tummy fat, well, good luck. Losing weight when you have wide hips is like swimming against the current. Of course, you can do it, but those really slender girls seem to get in shape in no time while you’re still trying to figure out why you can’t get rid of your muffin top. We all know how important food and exercise is… blah blah blah, but people without hip don’t actually understand the struggle. It’s three times harder for us to lose the stubborn fat, though, three times faster for us to gain it…on our hips and tummy.
You have a great sex life
I mean, you’re not lacking in that department. Women who are curvier typically have more sexual encounters than non-curvy women. It may be connected to the whole “fertile and biological” wiring in men’s brains, as curves show fertility, but we’re not complaining. We’re just doing our thing and they seem to keep coming.
At the end of the day, you love your curves
No matter how much hassle they put you through, whether you can lose that pound or not, if your jeans have a hole in the crotch – you love your curves. They make you feel sexy and sensual, as they should. You may not be able to pull off every fashion trend but what you do wear, you rock it and look va-va-voom. Do the hassles outweigh the benefits? Absolutely not, and if someone was to offer their slender body in exchange for yours, you wouldn’t even blink. Those hips are all you.
Hips or no hips, love your body – you only have one. Yes, I know, from this list above, they sound like a pain in the ass at times, but really, they’re a part of you. Love them.
