Dressing For Your Shape, Part Four

Pear shaped women, your time has come on our weekly Fashion Friday series that’s all about helping your look beautiful in your body shape. Last week it was focused on brides who have a larger bust and how to help support your larger gifts. A pear shaped body is the most common for women and your hips are generally larger than the width of your shoulders. Think of celebs like Beyonce and Kim Kardashian. You may have a smaller bust but those with a larger bust are considered an hourglass shape.

When shopping for a wedding dress you’ll need to be on the lookout for dresses that create a natural waist with skirts that flare out and highlight the narrowness of your mid section. V necks and thin strapped bodices up top will showcase your thinner (or toned) arms. A Line dresses and structure will help balance out your shape and try to keep the focus up top with an embellished necklace. Try to avoid mermaid style dresses, straight across strapless necklines, and sheaths.
