How to define a pear-Shaped figure

Those with classic pear-shaped figure have heavier hips and thighs holding all their weight on the bottom halves of their bodies. Small waists and arms are their best assets.

Here are a few key points to remember when dressing a pear shape:

  • Dresses and skirts in lightweight material like chiffon will skim over heavy hips and thighs.
  • Flatter your lower half with a dark-based colour.
  • Avoid side pockets and detailed back pockets on trousers.
  • If you going two-tone, stick to darker tones on your bottom half to instantly flatter hips.
  • Bring the focus on top to keep attention away from your heavier lower half.
  • Light layers that are cleverly styled will minimise your shape without adding extra weight to your look.
