no hips looks more athletic. NARROW PELVIS. it's easier to present a streamlined physique (the current judging criteria) if you're not fighting your own genetics. if, for example, I were competing in bikini, I'd be fucked because I don't have a lick of natural curves on me. I've lunged and squatted a little bit of leg and booty into place, but the kind of natural curves that give women sex appeal and make spandex dresses look bangin? I've never had any of that. bikini criteria requires you to have hips. figure criteria requires you to have the narrowest hips possible. see: Erin Stern, Candice Keene, and my personal favorite, former figure champ Gina Aliotti. Nooooo hipppps.
Haha before opening this I was anticipating a, "why do you ask so many questions??" But your response explained things perfectly.
Maybe one day I will do a bikini comp. My hips are 11-12in wider than my waist currently, and a lot of that is hip structure (although there is fat, too
) so I can't do much about it. CBHs, yo
