Pear Body Women Dress Codes

If you are pear body shape, know clearly your traits and assets first. Some tips for you to know when choosing clothes.
Pear body traits: Your lower body is wider than your upper body — in other words, your hips are wider than your shoulders. Your bottom is rounded and your waist is well-defined.
Your best assets: Shoulders and torso
Your fashion goals: Emphasize your waist and arms, add volume to your shoulders and upper body.

As a rule of thumb, necklines for dresses should accentuate the shoulders and waist — play around with sweetheart, scoop-neck or plunging. Opt for visually interesting hemlines on dresses that slim the hips and thighs, like the hi-lo trend or a tulip skirt.

Codes for pear body figures:
DO try A-line skirts, A-line evening dresses and prom dresses.

DO keep hems of pants, skirts and dresses wide to balance the hips.
DO experiment with light-colored tops and dark-colored bottoms for contrast.
DO look for boat neck tops, square and cowl necklines.
DO wear strapless dresses to show off arms and even out proportions.
DO try styles with ruffles on top.
DO wear jackets that hit right above the waist.
DO opt for pointy-toed shoes to elongate your legs.

This way, you can know what to wear and what not to. Dress yourself well.
