5 flaunting must-haves for a pear-shaped body

If you’re reading this, you probably already know that looking good is not all about the size.

It’s about the shape. And the first step in learning to dress better is recognizing which body shape you are.

And if you fall into the category of the sweet and curvy pear, your most prominent features are a full, round booty and thunder thighs.

When it comes to fashion, both of those features are gold. Yes, even those voluminous thighs you’ve been googling ways to get rid of.

Here’s why – you get to have the most vibrant and enviable wardrobes of all. Think of the sassiest of skirts, gowns, scarves - and not to forget – a whole lot of tops with sophisticated necklines and designer print.

So, make some space for 5 of the most figure-flattering outfits your body absolutely deserves:

1. Printed, embellished, quirky tops:

Indulge in shopping for some interesting-looking tops for yourself. Don’t shy away from big, bold prints or bright colors – they’re totally meant to be your thing!

Ditch the plain, single-colored shirts and pick subtle prints for work. And when it’s time to go out and have fun, glam up with blouses that have adornments in metal, pearl or stone. These work well on your body shape, since they draw the due attention to the upper half of your body.

2. Wide sleeve blouses with different necklines:

Unless your arms have a full, plump look, always try to pick sleeves that don’t feel skin-tight. Rather, choose from alternatives like rolled-up, scrunches sleeves, puffed sleeves, bell sleeves and kimono sleeves. They do the job of giving your arms more proportion when compared to the legs.

Another advantage of having a pear-shaped body is the variety of necklines you can carry off.
There are so many gorgeous neck patterns that can add depth and bring your neck and bust to the limelight – including sweetheart necks, boat necks and scoop necks. And if you’re wondering if going strapless will do your body justice, know that it totally will!

3. Accentuating bras:

Why should only your booty get all the attention? Highlighting your bust is one of the best hacks to looking gorgeous in a pear-shaped physique. And while your elegant tops are going to do just that, the right bra is even more important.

Shop for push-up bras or padded bras in your size. And while shopping for outfits, make sure your wearing one of those, so you know exactly how well the dress fits around the bust.

4. Scarves and Jackets:

For your lower body, you want to flaunt your booty but not draw too much attention to the width of the hips and thighs. Avoid the jeans that come with designs or embellishments around the waist, and go classic – you can never go wrong with it! When it comes to skirts, the ones with mid-flair and those that are end just above the knees will look best – no style is out of bounds!
