Still going through puberty at 20??

I am a 20 year old female and I have noticed that my hips have gotten significantly wider within the last couple of months. Jeans that used to fit me are tight now. My butt has also grown a bit. I haven't gained that much weight but it feels like it because of how big my hips have gotten! And the widest part of my hips is still bony! Could I be just finishing up puberty and getting a more "womanly" shape? I look at pictures of myself from a year ago and my hips were noticeably straighter.

Many of  us change as we get older.  It's common for the hips to "flare" when we reach childbearing age. If you aren't overweight, I'm not sure I'd worry too much about it.

You could, however, try doing some exercise to make sure your muscles are toned and tight.  Yoga is great for that; so is walking.
