20 Simple Tips to Flatter Wide Hips or Pear Shaped Body Type


20 Simple Tips to Flatter Wide Hips or Pear Shaped Body Type

Most women have something about their bodies they would like to change.  I hear it all the time ” I hate my hips”.  Instead of letting what you don’t like get you down, let’s try using a few simple fashion tips to flatter what you do have and help you to love getting dressed.  Here are 20 simple fashion tips to help you learn how to flatter wide hips or the pear shaped body type:



1.  Choose blouses, tops and jackets that have embellishments  and bold patterns.


2.  Wear bright colored tops and stick to dark colors on your lower  body.

3.  Halter or strapless styles are the most flattering for wide hips.


4.  Shoulder pads are a great option for those with pear shaped hips because they help to create a hour glass shape.  This will help to redirect the attention to your upper body.


5.  Avoid jackets that fall at the hip, the bottom of the jacket should fall just below the hip line. Wear longer jackets that are fitted but, not too tight.   


6.   Avoid wearing any top or bottom with horizontal stripes. Horizontal stripes will accentuate the  width of a woman’s hips, making them appear larger than they really are.


7.   A-line dresses with a slightly plunging or V-neck also flatter the pear shaped figure and draw attention upward, away from the hips and thighs.


8.  An empire waist is great as long as the bottom isn’t overly full.


9.  Wrap around dresses are very flattering to the pear shaped figure. Choose a wrap around dress that gathers at the waist and fits tightly over the bust and torso, but has a flared skirt.


10.  Wear dresses that have embroidery, lace or other embellishments around the bust area.


11.  Choose dresses that are dark or at least dark on the bottom.


12.  Keep details at the hemline and up on the top of the bodice.


13.  Choose a pair of pants that have wide legs, hang just  below the belly button and are a dark color.


14.  Wear pants or skirts that have clean lines around the hip area, avoiding details around the hips and a flat front.


15.   Layering is great. A  loosely wrapped cardigan or jacket that hits just below the hips or longer will  help hide your problem area. Belting them will give you a waistline and help to create that hourglass figure.


16.  Choose belts that sit on your waist,  the smallest part of it and make sure the lines after that flare out.


17.   Look for necklaces that are made up of multiple pieces. If  large jewelry is too bold and dramatic for your personal style, choose a necklace that shows skin in-between the beads/pieces, rather than a solid, dense piece.


18.  Coats should be a dark color and flow away from the body at the waist as well.


19.   Wear shoes with a heel, they will add length to your figure.


20.   Always create a focal point somewhere else.  Remember,  you direct people where you want people to look by adding detail.

How to Dress the Triangle or Pear Shaped Body


How to Dress the Triangle or Pear Shaped Body


If you are bottom-heavy with wide hips and narrow shoulders, you’ve got a  triangle or pear-shaped figureTriangle shaped princesses have curvy lower bodies, which typically include full and shapely hips.  If the lovely triangle shaped Jennifer Lopez can be on the cutting edge of fashion, so can you!  When it comes to dressing, it’s all about balance.  The goal is to visually slim your bottom half and play up your top:


Play up the top


– Wear a quality bra to help define the waist and create curves in all the right places.

– Horizontal lines from the waist up will widen shoulders.

– Add volume above the waist…. embellishments around the bust and shoulders do just that.

–  Wear V-neck tops and create V-neck shapes with your layers. V-shapes elongate the neck and draw attention to

your slim midsection.                                                                                                       

– Off the shoulder, boat-neck tops, and  U necks look great as well.

–  Wear bright colors and bold patterns up top.

–  Wear tops with nipped or fitted waists.

– Add shoulder pads to whatever you can.

– Try princess or flutter sleeves or run with the ruched sleeve look.

– Besides being chic, military jackets also are flattering to a pear-shaped body.


Play down the bottom


–  Go for clean, tailored lines on the bottom.

– Whatever you wear on the bottom should always be more  tailored.             

– Try Pants that fall straight from the widest part of your hip.

– Stay away from Capri  pants or tapered legs, they draw attention straight to the hips.

– Vertical lines from the waist down will slim hips.

–  Avoid embellished pockets.

– Rock the A-Line skirts.  The A-line or flared skirt is a great piece to use as a base to accentuate a beautiful selection of  tops  and blouses.

– Work a softly gathered skirts that soften your curves without adding volume.

– Darker colors, clean lines and simple stitching work best on the lower half.

– Wearing some sort of heel (even if it’s just an inch) will give you the height that automatically slims down your curves.
