Styles for Pear Shapes

We recommend going for outfits that help balance out your shoulders, hips, waist and bust and at the same time draw focus to some of your best features!

  1. Bright Colours

For the bottom heavy, wherein your hips are wider than your shoulders and busts, the trick is to give equal attention to the upper body! What better way to do that than to wear some catchy bright colours that are sure to grab all the attention in the room. Remember your eyes are more drawn to bright colours than they are to dark hues.

  1. Boat Neckline

Boat necks emphasise the shoulders and accentuate your collar bones. The horizontal neckline adds breadth to your shoulders to bring about alignment in your structure. Some attractive details on the top half along with some drama on the sleeves is everything you are going to need!

  1. Empire Waistline

Empire waistlines are made for curvy figures with a defined waistline. They fit right in the narrowest part of your body extremely well and grab all the attention to that ‘so worthy of a flaunt’ waistline. Further they flare up going down balancing out those wide hips in proportion to the narrow upper, making it a win-win.

  1. Straight, Dark Bottoms

Use colours to focus the eye where you want it to go, while bright ones can emphasise your favourite parts, dark colours do equally well in reducing attention.  A pair of dark pyjamas do the work in covering your wide hips aligning it to your shoulders and give a sophisticated look overall.
