Best Types of Dresses for the Pear Body Shape
How to choose a Dress for the Pear Shape Figure
Pear-shaped women have a petite upper body characterized by a slender neck, narrow shoulders, small bust and rib cage, shapely waist, and a fuller lower body with generous hips and thighs. For the most flattering look, you should choose a dress that plays up your slender waist and sexy shoulders while minimizing the hip and thigh area. Below you can find the most flattering types of dresses which will improve balance between your upper and lower body, hide your problem areas and accentuate the best parts of your body
Pear shapes look best in empire-waist dresses that stop just above the knee. A type of dress or top where the waist line is raised above the natural waistline, sometimes as high as right below the bust. Best on slender-on-top or petite figures, the empire dress creates the illusion of length and camouflages a bottom-heavy figure or thick waist. Empire dresses with a fitted bodice showcase your petite waist and bring the eye up away from problem areas. The A-line cut of the trapeze dress is perfect for minimizing wide thighs and hips because of the generous room over the bottom.
