When you say ‘pear-shaped’ the first woman that immediately comes to my mind is Jennifer Lopez. IMO, she’s got the perfect body and I find myself wanting everything she wears. Being pear-shaped, for those who don’t know, is when your lower body is wider than your upper. Basically, wider hips and a smaller chest.
Of course you need to keep your body type in mind while dressing up. And when you’re pear-shaped, there are a few things you need to remember (See here). Since celebrities are a great source of inspiration, we found our favourite pear-shaped ladies and we’re going to let them show you what to wear this season!
Wide-leg trousers and a jacket will ensure your body looks proportionate. The trick is to highlight the narrowest part, which would be Ileana’s waist in this outfit and exaggerate the shoulders, which she does with her bomber.
Thank u lovely for the gorgeous look!!! @namratasoni ❤️❤️❤️ #Repost @namratasoni ・・・ What a fun morning ❤️❤️❤️ getting the gorgeous @ileana_official ready #nofilterrequiredhere #superweird #makeup #makeupisanart #makeupartistry #hairart #beauty #bloggers #makeupblog #orangelips #obssessed #hair assisted by @mitalivakil and @hot.hair.balloon
We aren’t suggesting you go out in just a blazer like Kim, but a longer, blazer dress would work wonders on a pear-shaped body.

When it comes to Indian wear, a dhoti can make the smallest hips look wider. Layer with an embroidered jacket to add some glamour and to even out your figure.
4. Jennifer Lopez
A pencil skirt is generally a no-no for pear-shaped bodies. But there’s always an exception. In this case, it’s the off-shoulder shirt that makes everything look put-together and curvalicious.
An A-line dress or skirt is ideal for this body type. Rihanna’s ticks all the right boxes!
