What’s the pear shaped figure? If your upper body is smaller than your lower body, you are classed as pear shaped, as are Beyonce, Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez. Strapless dresses are perfect for showing off your slender shoulders and drawing attention away from your hips.

How to choose dress if you are in pear-shaped. Emphasize your upper body with eye-catching detail. Halter-neck dresses will help balance your slim shoulders and wider hips. Low-plunging neck-lines will accentuate your upper body, drawing attention to your face and chest, and accessorizing with a statement necklace or large earrings will have a similar effect.

Most pear shaped women have beautifully defined waists, so show yours off with a cinched in waistline. Empire waistlines are ideal, as they draw attention to your upper body and make the most of a slender waist. Belts and detailing around the waistline will also play up this asset and balance beautifully with a full skirted dress.

Cocktail dresses with flowing or A-line skirts are perfect for pear shapes, as they skim the hips beautifully. Don’t be afraid to wear figure-hugging dresses, but make sure that they are not too tight around the hips and invest in the right under garments to hide any bulges or unwanted underwear lines.

Opt for block coloured cocktail dresses and steer clear of large prints, as they risk adding bulk to your hips. Alternatively, a two-toned dress with the lighter or brighter color above the waist and the darker tone below will balance out your figure proportionately.
