to melissa with love. :)


so sexy. seriously!! i would give most of my shoes and all of my jewellery to have a butt like these women have. (lucky... grumbles. )

pear shaped women generally have a petite top half and a more heavy bottom. smaller chest and shoulders and wider hips. Dressed properly these women are knockouts!!!
don't believe me? think beyonce, alicia keys, J Lo..

so ladies.. after searching long and hard... (this post took 3 hours to do.. reading all that advice is no joke man.. hahaha.. )

here's the verdict!!
The key for pear shaped figures is to draw attention to the upper half of the body in order to divert attention from the hips and thighs; the result is a seemingly more balanced body.

how to to that?

Bootcuts are a dream for pear shaped women. The cut is flattering because it widens below the knee and slightly flares at the bottom. A low rise or extra low rise minimizes the appearance of large hips and gives you a more balanced appearance. This also emphasizes your sexy waist. Pants that sits on your waist will make your bottom look much bigger than it is, especially from behind, so make sure u choose a pair that sits just below the waist line.Wear bootcut pants in dark colors and with a slight heel for a look that elongates your silhouette even more.

Stay away from trousers and jeans that taper in and are tight around your ankles, but also avoid really wide leg trousers that just go straight down from your widest part. A fitted boot cut or straight leg jean or trouser is your best shape. Cropped trousers are probably a bad move as they can make your legs look shorter and therefore your hips and bum wider.

A-line or flared skirts – the ageless femininity of a-line or flared skirts are just one reason you should stock your closet with these gems. Pear shaped women will find the skirts to be comfortable and flattering. Make sure the skirt fits well at the top and flares out as it goes down – the result is a minimizing look for the hips and a beautiful and confident you!
Short, tight skirts should be avoided as these will accentuate the tops of your thighs, and divert attention to that problematic areas.


You can wear most shirts and T-shirts that more top heavy girls can’t, so make the most of it and show off your figure. Look for necklines that are scooped, draped, v'd, rounded or squared. Any neckline that has a lower and wider neckline will look great. These will emphasize your bust and draw attention to your face. Also look for an under-wire or molded bras to help with balance. A halter top that ties at the neck will give the shoulders the appearance of width they need, and this will help balance out your hips and thighs.. Boat and slash necks that create a horizontal line across your neck, making your shoulders appear wider will balance out your bottom.

Adding detail to the top half can be brilliant at drawing the eye up the body away from the problem area. Brighter colours on top or beading detail around the neck line can look great, or you could try adding a statement necklace.
Any tops and jackets that highlight your waist are flattering for you, keep dark colours on your bottom half and have fun with brighter colours and prints on your top half.


Dresses can be your best friend as long as they emphasise your waist and do not have ruffles around your hips. Empire lined dresses are great as they are tight around your smaller top half and then flare out just below you bust line, skimming over your larger bottom half. Be careful though what material the dress is made out of.. sometimes light cheaper cloth makes the dress look frumpy if its in this cut. heavier material will give a sleeker and sexier finish.
:) have fun experimenting!!
