• Your hips are wider than your shoulder meaning your lower body is  wider than your upper body.
  • As a result, you have an elongated waist and your legs tend to be shorter in comparison to the rest of your body.


Wearing the Right Clothes
  • Wear trousers that are not too tight or light. Boot leg trousers are very good for pears.
  • Wear something catchy on top. Either a catchy color or some nice detail on your top.  Breast pockets, big collars or a pattern are also good. Horizontal stripes help to widen your upper body to bring it more into balance with your hips as do (subtle) shoulder pads.
  • It’s best that your tops and jackets end either above or below the widest point of your  hips and bottom.
  • Use accessories to further emphasize the top like necklaces and scarves.
  • Waist belts may look good on you as they emphasize your small waist.
  • You will look best if your trousers or skirt are the darkest part of your outfit.
  • Wear structured A shaped coats of knee length. A great coat for you is the trench. Make sure you get one with lots of details on top (like lapels on shoulders) and plain from the waist down.
  • Wear a full bra.
  • A line dresses will always look good on you. Dresses with defined shoulders and a good line are particularly good.
  • V line tops will draw further attention to your upper half
  • High boots are very flattering for your legs. Be careful with high shoes or shoes with ankle straps as they will shorten your legs
  • Wear medium to chunky heals with a bit of height to further elongate the legs.
  • Although it’s not always easy to find wide-sleeved shirts, keep an eye out for styles like bell and kimono sleeves.
  • They add volume to your arms, and as a result, your naturally voluminous hips and rear look more balanced and proportioned.
  • If nothing else, try to wear shirts that have rolled or scrunched sleeves; these also add volume to your arms, but without making such a bold fashion statement.


Wearing the Right Accessories
  • A bold, bright necklace that hangs low draws the eye to your upper half.
  • The extra detail on your bust makes it look fuller, which keeps your entire body looking better proportioned.
  • You can choose to wear a collar-style necklace which adds width to your neck and shoulders as well, a bonus for highlighting your upper body.
