Pears are smaller on the top, and thicker on the bottom – storing fat in their hips, thighs, and butts. They have hips that are wider than their shoulders. Pears are challenged with finding pants that fit both their waists (smaller) and hips (wider). With dresses, they commonly need to alter the top in order to accommodate their curvy lower bodies.
Advice for Pears:
- DO wear tastefully snug tops and jackets that highlight your petite upper body.
- DO wear necklaces, scarves, and eye- catching earrings that draw attention to your slim neckline.
- DO wear pointed shoes and wide- hemmed pants to elongate your legs.
- DON’T wear large pockets, gutsy patterns, or pleats that add bulk to your lower body.
