Pear-shaped celebrities: Kim Kardashian, Eva Mendez, Katherine Heigl
Pear body traits: Your lower body is wider than your upper body, in other words, your hips are wider than your shoulders. Your bottom is rounded and your waist is well-defined.
Your best assets: Shoulders, torso and flat stomach
Your fashion goals: Emphasize your waist and arms, add volume to your shoulders and upper body and minimize your hips.
Dos and Don'ts:
DON'T wear clothing that draws attention to the hips and thighs, such as cargo pants or print skirts
DO try a-line skirts, which camouflage your wider hips
DO keep the hems of pants, skirts and dresses, wide to balance the hips
DO wear light-colored tops and dark-colored bottoms to make your body shape balanced
DO look for boat neck tops, square and cowl neckline
DO wear strapless dresses to show off your arms and even out the proportions
DO try styles with ruffles on top
DO wear jackets that hit right above the waist.
DO opt for pointy-toed shoes to elongate your legs.
