A pear shaped body is one of the commonest body shapes and is characterised by a slim torso, bust and waist with larger hips, thighs and bottom. Put simply, your hips, bottom and thighs are larger than your upper body.
Ideal Dress Styles: Empire, A-line, Ball Gown
This shape is all about balance, drawing the eye up and elongating the leg.
- Flatter your best assets (your top half) with dresses that accentuate the bodice and loosely flow over the body.
- Strapless bodices are the best choice for your body type.
- Choose either an A-line, empire or ball gown and favour a strapless bustier or a halter with a circular neckline.
