A pear-shaped body is basically a smaller bust, narrow shoulders, and larger hips. If that sounds like your figure, you’ve come to the right place — because we have a slew of styling tips so you can shop for pieces that will flatter your frame!

These are two key points that can be used as a guideline. Tops should be highlighted at the chest and shoulders to show off the bust. A flattering look can be achieved by wearing more structured sleeves, although they are not essential. For bottoms, avoid tight fitting clothes and opt for high-waist styles. That said, wear whatever makes you feel fabulous — these are just a couple tips that can help guide your shopping if you don’t know where to start. Check out our extensive selection below!
