Is the "hip pocket" the front pocket or the back pocket?

My whole life, I thought the hip pocket was in back. But I just read something that seemed to imply that the hip pocket is in front.
My visual dictionary is no help in this case--it just calls them "front top pocket" and "back pocket".
Is it a regional thing, or is it like how I used to think "mausoleum" rhymed with "linoleum" because I never heard anyone say it?
