Today I will be telling you all you need to know about the pear-shaped body type. I will give you the inside scoop on ways that you can dress to accentuate the best assets your shape has to offer! Although my primary shape is an hourglass, I do have a slight secondary shape of a pear. But, I want you to realize there is no shame in this beautiful shape! Some of the most desired bodies in Hollywood are actually pear shaped!
Women with some extra "junk in the trunk" can probably understand what I am saying. It can be hard to find clothes that show off your curves without drawing too much attention to yourself. I know for me, the waist is my smallest area and sometimes I have a hard time finding pants that are tight enough in the waist without being too tight in the bottom area. But, today I will show you what outfits you literally need to incorporate into your wardrobe to make it seem as if you have hired your very own personal stylist! So, if you have been reading my blogs so far, you know the drill. Let's go ahead and address the signature characteristics of what a pear-shape actually is.
Characteristics of a Pear Shape:
|Bottom Half is Larger than Top Half||When you gain weight, it typically resides in your bottom half of your body|
|Small, defined waist||Your back may/may not be slightly curved|
|Hips and Thighs usually larger than width of shoulders/upper half||Bust may be somewhat smaller|
Tips &Tricks to Make You Shine With a Pear-Shaped Body Type:
1)Pears usually have a smaller upper body and defined waist, they tend to have a larger
bottom half. If you can relate to this, do not see that as a bag thing! Be proud of those
curves! Your main goal is to balance out your top and bottom half.
- Peplum tops, Tops with detailing on the shoulders, A-line dresses and tops can help to create more balance as well.
2) Keep the hems, pants, and skirts wider in order to create balance and elongate your legs.
-Structured pants that can slim your legs even more will really accommodate your curves in a flattering way!
3) While it is important to create a balance between the top and bottom half of your body, your really amazing upper half is what you want to direct all of the attention to!
-Focus on slimming tops, fitted tops, cardigans, button down tops. This will elongate your top half and show off how small your top half is. If you do this with a slimming pant, you have mastered the perfect look for your shape!
