Hipster Jeans – Have They Ruined 21st Century Women’s Figures?

When you were younger, did you wear your jeans too low? Or found that your knickers compared to now, were a lot more snug? And you look now, and you notice it seems to of created this indent in the side of your hips? If you answer yes to this questions don’t worry, you’re not the only one.

Victorian Corset

I discovered this years ago, when frankly I was standing in front of the mirror naked, when I noticed this hideous dip where my trousers usually sit, I didn’t think to much about it and forgot about it for awhile. Then I mentioned it to a friend on holiday and she too said she had this ‘Indent’ where her trousers sit on her hips. After we chatted about it for while, we came to the conclusion it must have been due to too many years of wearing hipster jeans (low rise). After trawling the internet, forums etc, I found that other women too like me have these little dips in their hips.

So, what can we do about it? Liposuction? Maybe spend an hour each night massaging the dents to plump them up again? Umm.. I reckon a change in clothing is the answer. Start by wearing underwear that’s not as tight, plus wearing it above your hips, so it sits nearer to your waist. I know this may look a little funny and somewhat unsexy at first. Also, try wearing high-waisted jeans too, they will give you that peachy shape again. And I believe if this is done properly, we may retain our once was ‘hour-glass’ shape back.
Remember the corset, famously worn by the Victorians. This garment was worn by women, and some men to create this desired feminine figure, historically made from whalebone. Women would go to the extreme corsetry involving ‘tight-lacing’ meaning when the corset laces are pulled tighter & tighter on a regular basis, you were to eventually achieve a smaller waist.

Women back then didn’t wear low rise jeans, so their figures weren’t affected in the way ours our today by certain clothing. Maybe we should revert back to our Ancestors fashion style? But for now, I’m going to try some high-waisted jeans! Let you know how it goes
