Your Pear body shape is the body shape category that the majority of women fall into.
Most importantly, for the best looking outfit your focus needs to be on balancing your hips with the upper body.
And accentuating your slimmer waist with the right size, length and style will give your pear body shape look the definition it deserves.
Pear Body Shape Style Recommendations
The style recommendations below will give you a great insight into what styles look great on your pear body shape. In addition, we have prepared a dedicated Pinterest board with lots more great styles.
Great Tops For Pear Body Shape
Not only are necklines like v-neck, cowl neck all great choices for your Pear body shape but also boat and round neck. Also turtle and square neck lines look very flattering.
Great Skirts and Dresses for Pear Body Shape
Soft a-line, stiff a-line coupled with straight or high waisted skirts are all great fits. Not to mention the material of the skirts needs to have stretch in the material to fit nicely over your hips.
Just above your knee or just below your knee are of course great finish lines. And mid calf length looks great if you are above average in height and your calf size is slim to medium.
Great Pants for Pear Body Shape
With this in mind, you will need to try on quite a few pairs to find the perfect fit. Furthermore, the rise of your pants looks best at 23cm and above. Learn more about the rise of pants here.
The material needs to have some flow to it in order to accentuate the slimmer parts of your legs as you walk.
Depending on the width of your hips you are best to find a dress pair of pants that falls straight from the hips.
Jeans styles need to be mid to high rise and straight or slim fit with stretch in the material will make you look better than bootleg or skinny jeans.
Side opening pockets or heavy embellishments are best avoided as well as bright coloured stitching as this will create attention to the heavier part of your body and make you appear bigger.
You will look the slimmest if you wear darker on the bottom and light in the tops, giving the eye an instant focus on your upper body.
Great Jacket for Pear Body Shape
Tailoring is what you need to look for in the perfect jacket to accentuate your slimmer upper body. A nice fit in the shoulders as well as a great length and waist definition makes for a great jacket.
Great Underwear for Pear Body Shape
The right seamless underwear will make a difference how nice a slimmer fitting dress, skirt or pants looks. A great pair of shape wear from mid thigh to under the bust will even out all the curves. Which is especially great for those special occasion dresses.
Shopping Up A Storm
For 50 year old, Karen Burke, shopping did not come naturally. Knowing she needed help, she invested a lot time into working together with Angela Barbagallo.
Karen is a Principal of a Wollongong High School and she likes to dress immaculately from head to toe. Her style is elegant and time-less with a touch of chic.
“I used to loathe clothes shopping. I could never find anything that fitted me properly. Now I am buying and wearing clothes I’d never have looked at before,” says Karen.
This busy mum-of-two created a wardrobe she loves by organising firstly what worked and what was missing. When she adds new items to her wardrobe they are always a 10 out of 10.
