If you’ve got that pear shape on lockdown, be sure to show it! There are a couple styles you should keep your eye on to ensure that you will look marvelously fabulous. A-line or fuller skirts are a great way to show off or camouflage, while a boat neckline or straps are a great way to balance your proportions.
Showcase your curvy figure and full hips with an a-line gown that gently angles away from your body. A fitted bodice will help reveal your curves in a simple, sophisticated and sexy way without sacrificing comfort. The simple lines of the dress will show your figure’s strengths and you will be sure to catch everyone’s eye.
If you are looking to focus more on the upper part of your frame, check out an empire waist gown. The high-waist style will show your figure and a flowing skirt will create a soft, graceful line that won’t appear too loose on your body. Look for a corset that has some texture, like light ruffles, and go for a soft material on the bottom for it will have a whimsical and light feel but will still display your pear shaped frame in the best way.
A ball gown with a natural waist is an excellent gown to help flatter your upper body while the full ball gown skirt flows out from your hips and thighs. The natural waist will hit the smallest part of your waist at the most perfect spot to really allow your beautiful curvy hips to shine. The full skirt will help conceal your lower half giving the upper body the spotlight.
These styles are all a little similar and a little different at the same time so be sure to choose the one that will make you feel more comfortable, confident, and beautiful.
