    My hips seem to be out of proportion to the rest of my body. Should I try to develop lats?

    btw, my shoulders are broad and are wider than my hips. basically, my body has a V-ship, above the hips...

    bigger lats will make the hips look smaller, proportionately

    Yeah but there would still be the "hourglass" shape that we typically consider a female attribute. Larger Obliques would even out your sides and it would be less noticeable.

    true... if you get wider lats, though, your whole back should get wider... unless you have high insertion points

    bigger obliques may cause that ugly same thickness from shoulders to hips that some people get.

    perhaps go for huge thighs? i dunno, hard to tell w/o seeing a pic.

    Usually obliques are intentionally downplayed for aesthetic purposes.
    I agree maybe developing the lats and outer thighs would give the illusion of the X frame.

    Ya, working your obliques will just give you a wider waist to go with your pregnant ho hips and make your lats look smaller at the same time. X-frame ftw.
