Pear Shape


Pear Shaped body types are proportionally larger around the hips and butt than they are anywhere else.

20% of women are pear shaped. On the plus side, men are subconsciously attracted to women with wide hips. It goes back to our animal nature. Wider hips are developed during puberty. Wider hips are related to how fertile we are, whether it’s true or not.

However, if your being pear shaped bothers you and you would like to balance it out, I can give you a few tips.

One way is to wear shirts with sleeves that hang off the shoulders. For example, take this shirt and tuck it into some mid-to-high waist, wide leg jeans. This would be a great day to day look.

If you’re looking for something more dressy… Try tucking this shirt into a black skirt like this one.

The idea is to bring the attention up. This is how I explained it to my husband. If you want to balance out a triangle at the bottom you would have to add an upside-down triangle to the top.

I hope this is helpful. Feel free to comment or ask questions!
