How to Dress the Pear Body Shape & What to Wear

The general idea is to add more volume to your upper body. Ideally, you want to balance the differences between your bust and hips. You can accomplish that by wearing colourful tops, or tops with pattern. Don’t be afraid of jackets with shoulder padding and tops with statement sleeves. Your shoulders and hips will look more balanced. The goal is to draw attention to your bust area instead of your hips. If you’re not comfortable with wearing a cleavage, one more way to achieve that is to wear a scarf around your neck.

Your waist is defined so you should make the most of it, and accentuate it. You can do that by wearing belts, wrap tops or dresses, and fitted lines in general. But be cautious with belts. You don’t want to wear belts that sit on your hips because you don’t want to draw too much attention to them. Steer clear of trousers with patterns, details or pockets on your hip area. Wide or flared leg lines won’t do you justice either. Instead, try to stick to simple trousers without much detailing.

As for dresses and skirts, stay away from pencil skirts. A-shaped dresses and skirts are your best friends.

Moving on to feet, don’t do things halfway and wear proper high heels. If you don’t feel comfortable walking around in heels, just make sure your shoes don’t reach to your calves, such as Uggs.
