How to dress for your body type: Pear-shape
Hello! It’s been awhile, but today I’m going to talk about how to dress for a pear-shaped body type, otherwise known as A-type or triangle shaped body.

The dress that I picked out is black, which means it’s already overall slimming. A deeper, more plunging neckline elongates the upper body and draws attention upward, and adding long embellishments, such as the above bullet necklace, also lengthens the upper body. The A-line silhouette of the bottom portion of the dress again emphasizes the upper body while also slimming wider hips, which is a characteristic of a pear-shaped body, and giving the illusion of a tiny waistline.

With a pear-shaped body, it is important to direct attention to the upper body in order to make it seem in balance with the hips. This is because pear-shaped bodies are, by definition, bodies with narrower shoulders than hips. The heels help by slimming down curves and giving height to a pear-shaped body, although, not all pear-shaped bodies are necessarily short.

Thanks and I hope you enjoyed my advice!

Love,
Rachael
