The first and foremost step for slimmer thighs and hips is balancing squat. All you have to do is, stand tall and straight, widen your legs and perform squat while lifting your chest. Do it while tapping on the floor. As you get up, try to hold on your left leg and count 1while keeping your body weight on the right leg. Repeat the same while holding your right leg. Squat can be done in two-three rows but not more than 20 to 25 times.
