Dawson’s video was flooded with supportive comments, with fans thanking her for her refreshing honesty.
One commented: “I needed to see this today. I’m self conscious about my hip dips and it’s relieving to be reminded hip dips are gorgeous and natural.”
Another wrote: “Omg, preach. I swear most of these men out here are so fixated on unrealistic body shapes they expect us all to have hourglasses.”
Dawson’s comments highlight how desensitised people have become to bodies of all shapes and sizes, with social media awash with women who claim to have transformed their figures through exercise alone.
The conversation spilled off of Dawon’s page, with people reminding each other of what should be blindingly obvious: it is not possible to grow the hip bone at the gym.
\u201c@venusnextdoor_ @taylortorea Okay, but their hips don\u2019t grow. You can certainly add mass to your body but your frame will not change. You will not miraculously be an hourglass, if you\u2019ve been inverted triangle your whole life. Some of these fitness models have gotten surgery, or already had that foundation.\u201d
