The following characteristics define the pear-shaped body:

  • - Your waist is wider than your bust
  • - You consider yourself to have fuller hips
  • - You may have narrower shoulders in comparison to your hips
  • - A fuller rear

Statement tops are essential for dressing this body type. Tops that are more fitted and structured define your shoulders and draw attention to your narrow waist. Try something daring like a plunge neckline or a cowl neck to show off your beautiful decolletage.

Dresses with dropped and embellished necklines, dramatic sleeves, belted styles, and open backs will elongate your frame and highlight your beautiful body shape.
