What's the pear-shaped body?  It means the upper body (shoulders and bust) is smaller compared to your lower body (your hips and thighs). Typical body traits of women with this shape include wide hips, thick thighs, a small bust, and narrow shoulders. If you have this type of body, you need to highlight your slender shoulders and create a flattering, sensuous look with dress styles that draw attention to your shoulders and bust.

What should you do if you are pear-shaped? Appealing styles such as halter necks and strapless dresses draw people’s eyes to your upper body rather than your hips, and balance out your proportions to create a beautiful, elegant look. Necklines that plunge low combined with statement neckpieces or large earrings also work great for you and emphasize your face and bodice areas.

If you are pear shaped you likely have a defined waists, so you show it off by going for dresses that have a cinched waistline. Empire waistlines and detailing around the waist are ideal choices. Play around with belts to create a bold or soft look depending on your mood and the occasion.

If you love flowy dresses, having a pear-shaped body is perfect as you can go for full-skirted options or wear opt for A-line skirts. These styles forgive your hips while keeping your look classy.

Do not hesitate to wear figure-hugging dresses as many pear-shaped women do; in fact, being a bit clever about which styles of cocktail dresses suit you best creates a completely new look for you.

A two-toned dress with a darker tone below the waist and lighter color on the upper body enhances your shape while also creating the correct balance. Just remember to wear the right undergarments to avoid unwanted underwear lines.
