Human beings have different shapes and sizes. These shapes make us different from each other. Though each shape is beautiful, some women might feel conscious about a certain part of their body, while some would like to flaunt another. Among these body types, women with pear-shaped bodies often question what to wear and what not to wear.

What does a pear-shaped body indicate? Well! If your lower part of the body is heavier and broader than the upper part, you have a pear-shaped body. In such a case, women have fat around their lower back, hips and thighs. Whether you want to accentuate or hide your curves is your choice. Take a look at our handy fashion tips!

Accessories For Pear-Shaped Body

In a pear-shaped body, your thighs and hips grab all the attention, you need a dress that can accentuate the upper part of the body. Hence, you must fixate on couture that will help you balance out the proportions of your body.

Women with a body like Ileana D’Cruz can invest in a wrap-around dress, A-line dress, off-shoulder dress or fit and flare dress. All these types of ensembles will allow you to create a balanced figure and will draw attention away from your hips and thighs.

Pants For Pear-Shaped Body

Women with pear-shaped bodies can take inspiration from Parineeti Chopra to style various types of pants. You probably need a pair of trousers that will allow your thighs and hips to breathe and not make them look broad.

Are high-waisted pants good for pear-shaped women? Yes, you must try high-waisted pants to balance out the proportions. Women with a big back can also try pants with a flat front because they offer the illusion of long and thin legs. Similarly, straight and boot-cut pants also work well for pear-shaped bodies.

Dresses For Pear-Shaped Body

To balance the silhouette, women with pear-shaped bodies need accessories. They compliment the outfit and draw attention away from the big back and thighs. They alter the overall appearance of the body by adding illusions.

For example, a styling tip for women with a big back and thighs is to try pointy-toe shoes. They will create an illusion of thin thighs. Women with large hips can also try belts with dresses, drop earrings when hair is tied at the back and trendy neckpieces to draw attention to your neck and comparatively small chest.

Tops For Pear-Shaped Body

What tops should pear-shaped women wear? Women with a small chest and big back need tops that can balance the proportions by making breasts look bigger, and hips look smaller than before. This styling tip will come in handy when you are pairing tops with pants and jeans.

For example, a square-neck top gives the impression of a broad shoulder and big breasts. Similarly, a peplum top makes your chest appear large and balances it with a heavy back and thighs. Women with a big back can also try boat and cowl neck.
