How to Dress for Your Body Type - Pear Shapes

Find out how to work your hips to the max and flatter that pear-shaped figure of yours with Kidzworld's style tips and tricks!

Pear Shapes - What Do Pears Look Like?

Pear-shaped peeps have small upper bodies (narrow shoulders, small bust) and larger lower bodies (shapely waist, full hips and thighs). If you're not sure what a pear-shaped bod looks like, then think of bootylicious celebs like Beyonce Knowles, Jennifer Lopez and Christina Aguilera!

Pear Shapes - What to Wear

Draw attention away from your lower half by doing as Beyonce does and wearing colorful, sparkly, striped, or patterned tops. Accessories like earrings, necklaces, pins, hats and scarves will also draw eyes upwards. When it comes to bottoms, stick to dark colors (they have a slimming effect), A-line skirts and low-rise, boot-cut jeans. And as for shoes, heels can make your legs look longer and leaner, and knee-high boots will cover up your legs if that's what you want.

Pear Shapes - What NOT to Wear

  • Short, tight skirts
  • Pants with side pockets
  • Tapered hems
  • High-waisted pants and jeans

I just don't enjoy anything I used to. My mum does know but she says it's a phase. It isn't. I just started high school, but I don't have any new friends yet and all the popular girls pick on me and call me a loner :-( I hate school. I like the actual lessons but I don't like the social side of it. There are lots of clubs on at lunch that I want to go to but I'm too scared to go to any. I have been to one , science club but everyone was staring at me the whole time (I don't know why, and frankly I don't care, I just want them not to). Any advice would be appreciated. It really does help to talk to someone (teacher, parent, counselor, or another trusted adult) about it. If you tell someone what you've written here I'm sure someone will help you.  As for the clubs, you really just gotta go for it. Things are always going to be scary at first but it will get better the more you get into it. And obviously being in a club should help make friends. I hope what I've said is even a little bit helpful! :)

YESSSSSS ! ! ! I love make up but I dont wear as much as ppl think I do. doing full make up takes too long but I wear concealer if I have a pimple or something to cover. I usually have my nails done but u dont have to do those every day, just touch em up unless u want to change the color. when I feel like more than that I do my lashes, lips an maybe eyeliner if I have time. having fun is more important than make up.
