Are You a Pear? Here's What You Should and Shouldn't Wear ...


Body shapes are confusing, to say the least. So, what exactly is a pear shape? Think Kim Kardashian, Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, Eva Mendes, and Katherine Heigl. Simply put, it means that you carry most of your weight in the lower half of your body. Your hips are wider than your shoulders, while your waist is much smaller. While I'm a big believer in wearing whatever you like, the fact remains that some things do look better on certain body types than others. So, here are a couple of dos and don'ts for the pear shaped body:

I thought Kim was an hourglass? She has a waist and her bust is in proportion with her hips. A pear shape has hips and skinner upwards.

I have a pear shape and I try to keep it simple. A lot of things just look extremely sexy on girls with this body type. So when it's time to look more relaxed or professional I try to wear darker, looser fittings clothes. But when it's time to look sexy, I that all taken care of (:
