Pear Body Shape Celebrities And How To Elevate Your Wardrobe

Are you wondering how pear body shape celebrities are maintaining their style and diet?

Join my discourse on how to elevate your body shape maintance!

One of the most common types of shapes is the pear body shape. The same “pear” with wide hips and small breasts, which for some reason is not loved by its owners and is so attractive and feminine in the eyes of men.

How to dress correctly for women of this type?

Description of the pear body shape

Many people immediately associate the female figure of a “pear” with a wider lower part in comparison with the top, which is generally true. This type is also called A-silhouette or a “triangle”.

Wide hips (noticeably wider than the shoulders) in women of this type are combined with a neat chest, narrow shoulders and graceful arms, a delicate thin neck. Legs are usually somewhat massive, sporty, sometimes a little short.

Those with a pear shape body usually own a refined, even aristocratic, elegant upper body. The difference between the hips and the waist is very significant – about 25-30 cm. The thin “pear” boasts a completely flat belly, wasp waist, and rather voluptuous buttocks. Excess weight, of course, spoils the impression somewhat, making the figure more voluminous and vague.

In addition to the delicate and long neck, “pears” have thin beautiful arms. And even with a slight discrepancy in the width of the wrists and more massive brushes, this drawback can be easily leveled with accessories. The main pride of “pears” is, of course, the waist. It can be slightly more elongated or short, but always thin, which is further emphasized by the hips.

Famous pear body shape celebrities

Many women with this type of figure consider themselves unattractive. Which is completely in vain. Domestic and Western show business is literally replete with “pears”. And no one dares to accuse celebrities of non-sexuality.

The most striking example of a star with this type of figure is the actress and singer Jennifer Lopez, who has long made her wide hips, combined with a thin waist, a calling card.

Among the famous “pears” – Christina Aguilera, Shakira, Beyonce, Meryl Streep. All of them just choose the right outfits to look seductive and easy. It is enough just to study their images in more detail in order to adopt ideas that are close to you in spirit.

We emphasize the advantages and hide the disadvantages

The upper part of women of this type is distinguished by grace and aesthetics. It is on her that one should make a “bet” when choosing a wardrobe. At the same time, it is enough to somewhat disguise the “bottom” and “stretch” the legs to get a noble and feminine image.

Women “pears” should not wear tight-fitting outfits, as well as tight-fitting clothes (T-shirts, sweaters) up to mid-thigh length, otherwise, they will visually fully justify the name of the type. The thighs will appear even larger, and the legs will look chunky and chunky.

Turtlenecks, open-fitting T-shirts, or T-shirts can be worn, but it is better to combine them with jackets, cardigans. The length of the latter should be above or below mid-thigh.

There is no need to strive to become inconspicuous, choosing modest and simple blouses, on the contrary, the “top” of the outfit should always attract attention, be original so that one would like to look at it. Bright colors, an abundance of decorative elements, flounces, and unusual lines of the neck – all this should become the weapon of women with this figure.

The emphasis should be placed on the waist, and wide hips should be hidden with clothes flared from the hips and flowing fabrics. You can play on contrasts – choosing clothes of lighter shades for the top, dark ones for the bottom.

A taboo for women “pears” should be pleated skirts, as well as patch pockets, and folds. Even a rather slender “pear” with a well-defined waistline, will make a shapeless fat woman. An emphasis on the hips should be avoided – the same applies to trousers, coats. You cannot choose models with pockets in the hip area.

You should also not buy clothes with horizontal stripes and other color accents in the hip area.

The optimal fit for trousers and skirts is medium. Clothes with a high waist can be recommended very conditionally, mainly for young girls without excess weight.

If with the help of clothes it is possible to balance the upper and lower parts of the figure, then heeled shoes will help to visually stretch it (and this is necessary for “pears”). Its shape must necessarily correspond to the shape of the legs.

For slender legs with thin ankles, you can choose both wide enough heels and stilettos, “glasses”. For women with full legs and massive ankles, the latest options are not suitable, shoes with a classic cylindrical heel look much more spectacular on their legs. Not the best option for this type – shoes on a platform or wedge heel, with a flat thin sole.

Matching trousers to match your shoes will make your legs look longer. Open-toed shoes have a similar visual effect.

Such an important accessory as a bag is also able to hide figure flaws. And, contrary to popular belief, bulky bags that are carried in the hands are not suitable for “pears”. The entire volume falls on the hips in this case.

The ideal bag is soft and worn above the hip line. A small clutch, a bag with a strap, and a miniature backpack are what you need.

Other accessories will help to emphasize the natural femininity and softness of forms. Do not be afraid to choose bold designer jewelry, the main thing is that they have smooth curves and a rounded shape. It is better to choose a thin belt, wearing it strictly along the waistline.

Bulky shawls and knitted scarves-collars, fur boas, and cozy capes – all this can and should be worn by “pears”. It is better not just to throw them on the shoulders, but to learn how to drape beautifully and emphasize the waistline with a belt tied directly over the stole, for example. This will create a feminine volume, draw attention to the upper part of the figure, but not turn into a shapeless spot.

Fabrics for clothes should be chosen soft, well-draped – silk, lace, chiffon, knitted fabrics, voluminous knitwear, suede. Moreover, for the bottom, you should select simple in texture, but not coarse materials.

Large prints in the lower part, bright colors should be avoided. The top should be bright in terms of both color and design.

All of these tips are aimed at visually hiding the lower body. However, you can do the opposite, because now the trend is to demonstrate an appetizing bottom. The main rule is that you should not have excess weight, flabby, sagging parts of the body.

It is enough to make friends with sports, then your buttocks will become the way men like them – elastic and quite voluminous. Thighs that are too massive will suddenly complement the buttocks perfectly. This rule is followed by the hottest beauties of Hollywood with a pear-shaped figure – the same Lopez, Shakira, Beyonce.

How to build a wardrobe for a pear body shape

The femininity of the figure, graceful arms, and pronounced waist allow “pears” to wear dresses and skirts that make them seductive and light. And even if you are used to wearing trousers and jeans, a couple of dresses simply have to appear in your basic wardrobe – so much to the face, or rather, “to the figure” of this type.

It is a big mistake to try to hide excessive hips with straight, baggy dresses. This not only does not reduce the hips but also adds unnecessary bulk to the “top”. For this type of figure, semi-fitted dresses of the correct length are perfect. They should end in the part of the legs where their narrowing begins, the thinner part.

Dresses with a flared skirt, as well as A-shaped silhouettes that expand from the chest, are also a worthy look.

Wrap and asymmetrical outfits also distract from oversized hips. At the same time, it is important that the thighs do not turn out to be both overly covered, and do not have a large number of layers, folds.

The top of the dress, on the contrary, can have volume in the form of flounces and ruffles, deep neckline, and boat neckline look beautiful and feminine. A thin waist can be emphasized with a strap.

Women with a pear figure should pay attention to skirts that have an extension in the middle of the thigh (this will mask the widest part of it) made of light-flowing fabrics. First of all, these are, of course, a-line skirts and bells.

If this style seems too boring and simple, take a closer look at the tulip skirt style. By itself, it is quite lush in the hips, so it will hide all the “unnecessary”. However, at the bottom, such an outfit narrows, which makes certain demands on the legs. They do not have to be full, it is better to wear such a skirt with high heels. Having a high waist, this style will shift the emphasis to this area, which will add grace to the image.

Wrap skirts look interesting and unusual, seductively on “pears”. In this case, you should correctly choose the line on which the 2 halves of the outfit converge – it should not fall on the full part of the hips, but ideally should be at the level of the thinnest part of the top of the legs.

At first glance, it seems that year skirts are not the most suitable option for this type. However, despite the fact that such a skirt fits the upper part, due to the expansion downward and the lush flounce, it is possible to neutralize the excessive volume in the hips. A year-old skirt with a drop in length (slightly shorter in front) is also a suitable cut.

In the absence of excess weight, you can afford a classic high-waisted pencil skirt. Thick fabrics, small print “houndstooth” or “checkerboard” will also hide the fullness.

The choice of trousers for women with such a figure should be approached extremely responsibly. Models with low and high waists should become taboo, which makes the hips look even more massive. However, baggy models, like those narrowed downwards, should also be abandoned.

You should not choose models with pockets – back, side.

Slender pear-shaped ladies can afford high-waisted palazzo pants. By the way, they are suitable for quite tight-fitting trousers, jeans, but in this case, you need to add volume to the lower legs, ankles. You can tuck your jeans into high boots or wear rough boots that “dangle” a little in the ankle area.

Almost all “pears” fit straight trousers, as well as bell bottoms from the hip or knee. The main thing is to avoid over-fitting.

In the absence of excess weight, “pears” can afford shorts. The main thing is that they hide the problem area completely – the length of the shorts should be such that they end after the widest part of the hips. They should be straight or loose cut with an elastic band or on a belt, somewhat gathered with folds.

When choosing a blouse, shirt, cardigan, or jacket, you should be guided by the following principles:

  • no baggy, clothes one size larger;
  • the optimal length is just below the middle of the thigh (or the widest part of it);
  • the presence of decorative particles in the upper part is welcomed – buttons, brooches, original elements will
  • become the accent of the image, distract from the problem area;
  • open shoulders, lantern sleeves, boat necklines, American armholes – all this allows you to balance the massive
  • bottom, emphasizing the beautiful sloping shoulders;
  • voluminous sleeves, frill, ruffles, unusual cutouts – all this also allows you to place the right accents and hide
  • problem areas of the figure from prying eyes.

As for outerwear, the rule also applies here – no shapeless “bags”. Wear blazers and jackets that are either taller or well below mid-thigh. An autumn wardrobe can consist of coats and jackets. The coat should be fitted with a fitted or A-line silhouette. Chanel-style jackets, leather jackets with an original lock cut, jackets with a clear shoulder line – all this should appear in a fashionista with this type of figure.

It is also better to choose a fur coat with an A-shaped silhouette, fitted with a voluminous collar or hood. The fur is preferably long or, on the contrary, sheared.

Do not be afraid of too bright and catchy accessories – large locks, rivets, epaulets – they all not only add individuality to the image but also draw the eye to the top, distracting from the bottom of the figure.

Useful tips for different ages

All of these recommendations are suitable for pears of all ages. But they should still be implemented, adjusted for age. So, for example, open shoulders and a huge fluffy shuttlecock on girls 20-25 years old look harmonious and attractive. However, for women after 30 years, such an outfit can be vulgar. You should not refuse such a neckline; it is enough to choose clothes with a more closed neckline and lace trim in the upper part, reminiscent of a boat neckline.

For a lady over 40 years old, you can choose an upper with an American armhole or clothes with transparent and translucent voluminous sleeves as everyday clothes. This will help to visually expand the upper part, but it will not be perceived as a desire to “rejuvenate”.

The same goes for bright colors. If young girls can choose bright red, pink, yellow tops, jackets, and cardigans, then mature women are better off making these colors nobler and muted – not a bright red jacket, but a dark cherry, shade of Marsala, not a canary yellow blouse, but mustard or olive shade.

By the way, even a white or beige shade against a dark background looks bright and noticeable. And the very combination of black and white in the presence of an interesting cut, a combination of textures and accessories does not look boring and “office”, but expensive and sophisticated.

Beautiful examples

These ladies demonstrate how to visually stretch a figure with massive hips and fairly short, slightly plump legs. To do this, you just need to “lengthen” the waist by choosing outfits with a high waistline. A length just below the knee and shoes with heels also help.

An example of an ideal dress for this type is a flying skirt of the correct length and an interesting “top” with a boat neckline. The latter visually expands the line of the shoulders, focuses on the graceful collarbones. Pay attention to the silhouette of the dress – it is fitted, and the waistline is slightly higher than its natural line, which contributes to the “lightening” of the image, stretching the silhouette.

Elongated and very long cardigans, light coats, jackets – all this, if worn wide open, literally “eats up” the extra centimeters in the hips. This bow uses an elongated jacket made of lightweight, dense fabric that keeps its shape well. It frames but does not fit the figure, hiding everything unnecessary.

If you additionally tuck the sleeves, then they will attract the eyes to the arms, the upper part.

The look with an elongated jacket can be called even more successful. They hide excessively heavy legs, stretch (in combination with shoes with heels) the silhouette. The deep blue looks bright, but calm enough. The accent becomes a voluminous ball with a print, which, however, is within the palette chosen for the bow.

Flared trousers are paired with an extra-long blazer and leave no trace of heavy thighs. A turn-down collar and large buttons draw attention to the upper body, and the white color will definitely not leave such a woman without enthusiastic looks from others.

A look for every day is quite simple, convenient, but no less stylish. The bell-bottomed trousers are paired with a loose-sleeved blouse, which conceals voluminous hips and balances the hem with the top.

In this look, a bell skirt with a high waistline conceals wide hips, and a laconic blouse with lantern sleeves takes on the widening of the shoulder line.
