Anatomically speaking, the hips are the area at the side where the pelvic bones are widest. And while we can't do anything about the width of our hip bones, we can smooth and slenderize the flesh that covers them with shapewear that targets this area. This can be accomplished with body shapers that have a high spandex content in the body of the shaper, and/or have engineered knits or panels that compress this area. The hips are not to be confused with the derriere (more commonly known as the butt), which is the rounded lower rear. All of HerRoom's famous maker shapewear brands carry styles that address this target area beautifully. Among them, Bali, Rago, Va Bien, Spanx, Flexees, Maidenform, Miraclesuit, Naomi & Nicole, Wolford, Body Wrap and many more.
