Dressing for a Pear Shape Body - Vintage Style

Pear or Triangle

This is me!  I think all us juicy pears know that we have bigger bottoms and thighs.  Our busts are generally smaller with smaller tummies and narrow waists. 

Famous pears include Beyonce and Katie Holmes

A-line, fit and flare dresses are the way to go!  I think this is why I am so drawn to the 1940's & 1950's vintage style clothing as so much of it suits a pear shape. Another bonus of being a pear is in general our arms and necklines are much slimmer so we can embrace a strapless dresses or or smaller straps to emphasize our smallest area.  The 1950's big full skirts are just perfect teamed with their fitted bodices.  Why not get a petticoat to go for the full flounce! 

This 'Hepburn' Dramtic Rose 1950s Style Dress is a wonder for this body type.  Fitted bodice with an elegant boat-neck line which then flows out into a wide flared skirt.  Shows off your slimmer upper body, flatters your narrow waist and then skims out over your bum and legs.   If you don't like your arms so much then you could pair with a cropped cardigan or even a denim or biker jacket to give this an edgier look!  We love this style of dress called 'Hepburn' as inspired by the gorgeous Audrey Hepburn herself.
