How to Dress for Your Body Type - Pear Shapes

kids articles

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
