Pear-shaped bodies have smaller shoulders, bust, and waist in comparison to larger hips and thighs.
Pear-shaped women typically carry more of their weight on the bottom half of their bodies, and less on top. When considering how to best dress for this body type think about ways to create visual balance with your outfit.
For instance, by adding a bold necklace to a high neckline, A-line dress, you can draw the eyes up to the top half of your body. This will help you balance out the bottom. Or try a strapless dress with big and bold earrings and statement belt at the waist, again giving more balance to your outfit by accentuating your top half.
Women with pear-shaped body types should avoid clingy fabrics and bold prints that draw unbalanced attention to their bottom half, instead focusing more on embellishing the top half.
