Ah the classic Pear! This much maligned and most common of all body shapes is often not viewed very positively and carries a rather frumpy and drab image. This is totally unfair though and has lots of advantages.
To start with because around 60% of UK women between 18 and 30 are Pears and this grows every year, the rather set in its ways fashion industry has finally had to admit that only 6% of women are the classic Hourglass shape that much of its output was based on. This means a lot of off the peg clothes on the high street are naturally made for you lucky Pears so dressing to impress is just a case of choosing wisely.
There is often the idea that Pears are overweight and this can also be totally untrue, Trinny is a Pear not because she’s chubby but because her thighs are just a bit bigger than the rest of her – and none of its very big! Pears have all the good stuff going on up top and this is always a huge bonus, back, boobs and arms are usually all winners so its just a question of emphasising them to naturally balance everything below the waist.
Keep away from:
Tight cut jeans.
Take a look at:
Anything that enhances your shoulders.
Strapless dresses with generous skirts.
A-line skirts (long ones only).
Coats with belts.
Flat fronted wide leg trousers.
Just keep the focus on your lovely slim top and the rest will naturally follow.
