I am going to cover a few basic body types this week.
I am way over simplifying body types.
Every woman's body is different.
BUT for the sake of the blog,
I am going to tell you some basic rules for some common body types
and hopefully you will fall into one of these.
Today we are talking about PEARS.
Most women are pear shaped.
What does this mean?
If you are a pear you have a smaller torso,waist and rib cage with larger hips, upper legs and bum.
When you gain weight it tends to go to your lower body.
This is a very easy body type to dress, IF you know what you are doing.
You can wear:
crew neck tops
scoop neck tops
boat neck tops
dresses with fitted tops are MADE for your body type
wide leg pants that are wide from the hip to the foot
pants that are longer and worn with heels
belts at your waist
standard size pockets on jeans
jeans that are distressed a little from the hip to the foot in the front ( helps lengthen the leg)
horizontal striped tops
fitted well tailored blouses
empire waist dresses
A line dresses
50's style dresses ( tight bodice with flared skirt)
You want to play up your slim upper body by wearing fitted tops and lose bottoms.
Wrap tops and shirts, sweaters and jackets with belts at the waist will draw the eye to your slim waist.
If you have that problem with items being to wide at the waist to fit your hips ( A LOT of women do), buy the piece anyway and take it to a tailor.
denim with contrast stitching on the bum an or tiny pockets.
on the seam pockets (they will blunge)
tops, or jackets that end at your widest point
skinny jeans and leggings ( unless worn with a tunic type long top)
over sized boxy tops and sweaters
booties ( unless with pants)
gladiator sandals that go up the ankle
