5 wardrobe essentials for a pear-shaped figure

The Pear Shaped-Figure type is a figure in which the person has a smaller bust and waist in proportion to the size of the hips and thighs. If you have a pear shaped figure don't be worried. Recent researches indicate that women's figure is slowly becoming less shapely and more man like. Scientists believe the reason why hip and thigh fat is so sticky has something to do with the reproductive process of our species. Estrogen multiplies fat storing enzymes and directs that fat to be part of hips, buttocks, and thighs. Fat cells in that area contain more alpha or fat storing receptors.

It seems like mother nature has ensured that a woman has an abundant fat storage to stay fertile and carry a full term and breast feed even in times when food is not readily available.

Fashion for a Pear-Shaped Figure

Treat your shape like a beautiful sculpture - the right clothes can add to your looks here and conceal others there. Some of the tips are as follows:

  • The key to fit your pear shaped figure is to draw away the attention from your hips and thighs. Try wearing darker colours on your bottom. Obviously, black is always slimming, and can detract attention away from hips and thigs which are the most problem areas.
  • The shoulder pads were used to be popular because they made the waist and hips look smaller in comparison to the shoulders. It fooled the eye of the onlookers. By developing larger muscles in the shoulders, chest, arms, and upper back, you can also create an impression that the lower body isn’t as wide and as big as it is in reality.
  • A delicate shoe and a tight stocking will tone the bottom and will minimize the bulges of a heavy calf. Do not wear contrast color shoes or stockings because they will draw attention downward and the eye of onlooker will compare the size of the hips to the size of the feet.
  • You could try light-colored, fit tops over dark, loose pants or skirts. Avoid light colors on the bottom, as they'll only draw attention to the problem areas.
  • Pants that fit well can be increase the problem further. A pleated waistline will reduce the curve of the hips if the figure is not too heavy. Pants should be well tailored with a crisp front crease. Avoid loose knits and select heavy woven fabrics. Layering a jacket or vest over pants will reduce the difference which lies between the small torso and the fuller hips.
