Pear – Dressing for Your Shape

By August 11, 2011 2 Comments

Pear Shape: Also a beautiful shape! Women with this  shape will most likely have a slim neck an average bust, small shoulders and back. Along with a defined waist and backside, also thicker thighs. That is why it is important to balance this shape out, and you can do so by redirecting the eye from your lower half to your top half.

Lets start with the upper half of the body. You can get away with wearing blousy or fitted tops. I personally love to wear blousy tops. People say that it hides your shape but I feel that if my arms and legs are being highlighted it makes me look petite and balanced. Anything that is embellished with ruffles or fun patterns looks good on this shape. This draws the eye from your bottom to your top.

A halter top works great on this shape. It makes the shoulders appear wider which in turn balances out your lower half. I wore a gorgeous halter dress for my wedding.  

Also a padded bra is great for a pear shape this too balances the body. Trust me when I say this girls, I have always worn one. It gives the appearance of just a little more than I was blessed with.  

A wide leg jean will balance out the pear shape and make your legs look slimmer.  As for pants I find that a wide legged or flare look best.  You will want a mid rise jean  rather than a low rise which doesn’t flatter your waist. Dark wash is best, it also slims the body.



I am all about women knowing who they are, finding their own individual style, and not spending a lot of money doing so.  I believe in creating looks that are timeless yet practical and consistent with your own personality. I live to shop the clearance racks! I truly believe It’s not what you wear but how you wear it. Not one of us were created to look the same, so what looks good on one woman might not look good on another. So when shopping for yourself, it is crucial to know what looks good on you. Knowing what works on your shape can make the difference from an ordinary outfit to ex-ordinary. I think we should go through life giving it all we have and I apply this ideology when dressing myself. I know from my own experience that when having a not so good day I know that if I put on a nice dress or fun sassy top, I can guarantee that what ever sour mood I might have felt before starts to slip away when I slip into the clothes. First impressions are lasting so why not always try to look your best you never know who you might meet! These are all approaches I take when building my wardrobe, or getting dressed on a daily basis. As far as about me as a person to share some insight with you. I clearly LOVE clothes. I but what I love more than the clothes themselves is how I feel when wearing certain outfits. I also LOVE to style for other people. I get such an amazing feeling when I have helped someone select an outfit that they feel good in. Or sometimes what is better than that for me is dressing someone in something they would never choose for their self and they end up loving it. Although I do love clothes I do not believe in spending a lot of money to look and feel good. I get a thrill out shopping clearance. The price tag does not define the worth of an item to me. What makes it worth it for me is how it makes me feel and knowing that I paid half the cost and still look GREAT!
