With each passing year, fitness trends change thanks to the media. The latest in-vogue body type is the notorious Kim Kardashian slim thick body, defined as the perfect hour glass figure that most women seek.
Apparently, perfectly flat abs with the 11 apparent with a waist that is clinched and a booty that is as peachy as it gets. Varying from the early 2000s trend when the preferred feminine body was supposed to be skinny and as thin as it could get from every aspect, the 21st century slim thick body supports filled thighs, with stuffed hip dips, clearly larger than the mid-section but toned as they could get. The rear follows suit; it needs to be plump and filled in all the right spaces. In contemporary language, a bubble butt is what completes a slim thick body.
This is a deviation from the norm that women who were slim and skinny qualified for Victoria’s Secret fashion show, Hollywood movies and TV shows. The newest demand is that of all the right curves in all the right places on a relatively slim and toned figure. The chest needs to be similarly busty. If you are on Instagram, you have probably already visualized this figure as almost every famous Instagram model and celebrity rocks this very same body.
Hailed as a somewhat healthier body image that embraces women with curves and weight, the slim thick body cannot be attained overnight. Look at Khloe Kardashian; it took her years of gym training and several break ups (optional) to get that juicy slim thick body. If you cannot afford a gym or are already under a lockdown due to the COVID19, worry not, consistent weight training at home can get you the same results over a period of time.
While most of the online slim thick bodies are photoshopped, they aren’t really unattainable. Some changes in your diet and specific work outs that help you build muscle while burning fat will get you the slim thick sexiness just in time for bikini season; once the COVID19 lockdown has been lifted of course. Use this time to train your mind and body!

Here’s the most famous celebrity in this short list of ours – the one and only Kylie Jenner! She’s known to have an unreal butt paired with the slimmest waist and legs, which translates to a phenomenal figure. Something like that can’t be achieved effortlessly though, that should be well understood. Her waist training is extremely intense, so much so that experts actually warn against the workout regime she follows.
However, some useful tips she gave while talking to ‘Babe’ included;
- Doing donkey kicks, and increasing the reps as you move forward in your workout sets.
- Focusing more on the pilates machine.
- Incorporating more exercises that work your bottom half and core, making it possible to achieve a slimmer waist but a thicker butt!
A little diet tip from her to keep in mind: eat clean, drink more water, and strictly limit carb intake.
Slim thick body exercise to do at home
A whole lot of people have made this quarantine a big old excuse to procrastinate from working out. Yes, you might not be able to go the gym, but that doesn’t mean you can’t exercise. In fact, home workouts are highly recommended for beginners as it’s a fool proof way of ensuring that you never hurt yourself.

Warm up with 2-3 sets of the following, with 30 seconds of rest between sets;
- 30 seconds of high knees
- 30 seconds of butt kicks
Begin the workout with the super set! It consists of 10 jump squats and lunges (both legs). To clarify, one jump squat and two lunges in total would count as one rep.
The next super set involves planks; 1 minute for a regular plank and side planks for 30 seconds on each side.
