Pear Shape (Large hips) Body Type

Your Figure Defined

Find what dress suits your shape

You are narrow on top and heavier on the bottom. With this shape, your goal should be to find a dress that balances the top half and bottom half.

A-line / Princess dresses disguise fuller hips and suit the pear shaped body types best. This also balances torso to bust. An A-line skirt together with a strapless neckline looks really well. Another good option would be an Off the shoulder or scoop neckline with an A-line shape. These styles focus attention on your upper half and bring balance to the overall look. Avoid styles that cling to the shape of your body such as Sheath and Mermaid. Also avoid V-neck. These tend to draw the attention towards your chest and hips.

What flatters:
Silhouette: A-line/Princess, Ballgown, Drop Waist
Neckline: Strapless, V-Neck, Off the shoulder, Scoop, Halter

What doesn’t:
