Dear Minky
There is no diet that will help you gain weight in specific areas of the body like the hips. If you are seriously underweight then gaining weight all round will also increase your hips size. Body shape as such is usually genetically determined and you probably have other members in your family who have such slim hips. Click on 'Diet' at the top of this page and then on 'Diet Basics' and 'Weight gaining' and read the articles on 'How to gain weight'.
