Key to dressing up a pear body

– If you have a pear body shape, an oversized tee might not be your best bet. Instead, opt for a fitted shirt to accentuate your waist 👈 ⁠

Do & don'ts for a pear bodyshape

– Wear prints, brighter colours and embellishments on the UPPER BODY, instead of the lower half to avoid drawing attention to the hips.

– Avoid body-hugging bottoms, and opt for high waisted pants and wide-legged pants, preferably in dark colours.

Recommended Necklines: Boat neckline & portrait neckline

These necklines can will help to create illusion of wider shoulders. To have a more structured upper body, shoulder pads can be added.
