The Pear Body Shape

What is the pear-shaped body? And how do you know if you are a pear shape?

Some common body shapes, such as the apple shape, hourglass figure, etc. The pear body shape is one of them. A pear-shaped body shape is also known as a triangle body shape. This is because the hips and thighs are typically wider than the shoulders, which creates a triangle silhouette.

The best way to find out if you have a pear-shaped body is by looking at yourself in the mirror. If your hips and thighs are noticeably wider than your shoulders, then you most likely have a pear-shaped body. Also, if you have a smaller bust and a defined waist, you are likely a pear shape.

Some celebrities with the pear-body shape include:

  • Kim Kardashian.
  • Taylor Swift.
  • Beyonce.
  • Jennifer Hewitt.

You Are a Pear-Shaped Body if You Have:

  • Narrow shoulders in proportion to hips. This is one of the most prominent features in pear-shaped women.
  • Wider hips, buttocks, and upper thighs.

Pear-shaped women might find it difficult to find flattering swimwear that compliments their bodies.

Below are some swimsuits that complement the pear-shaped body.

One-Piece Swimsuits

One-piece swimsuits are great for any body shape if you find the right one-piece swimsuit.

Try finding eye-catching necklines that focus on your upper body and take attention away from the thick thighs and wide hips. You can try one-pieces with more coverage or extra coverage in the bottom half.

If you are having trouble finding a suitable one-piece, try tankinis. Make sure the upper half is brighter than the lower half to give your upper body more attention.

Push-up Bikini Tops

Push-up bikini tops are great as they accentuate your bosom with the cleavage, giving your medium or smaller bust more volume. Search for comfortable push-up bras, or you could try up bras!

You can also try bikinis with elaborate styles, a plunging neckline, or anything that adds more volume.

High Waisted Bikini Bottoms

Bikini bottoms are great for diverting or putting the limelight where you want to. High-waisted bikini bottoms will elongate the leg, making your upper leg look larger. A high-cut waistline will also flaunt your curvy waist!

Mix and Match

Mix and match is fun! But it can also be fabulous on pear-shaped women. Try light colors on the top half and darker colors on the bottom half. Choose a printed top with colorful and detailed prints, while the bottom half should be black or dark and plain. It will garner attention to your bosom and top and take away eyes from the lower half.

Halter Tops

Halter tops with tiny straps showcase your narrow shoulders, giving them more attention, and that can create the illusion of a proportionate upper body shape.

It would be best to go for tiny straps to make your narrow shoulders wider, as they will be more revealed.

Swim Skirts

Women with pear-shaped bodies have thick thighs, so it is best for a little more coverage. That will help your body shape to look proportionate. Bonus point if the skirt is a dark color!

A Deep V-cut

V-cuts have revealing necklines and show your cleavage, natural curves, slender waist, and flat stomach.

Off the Shoulder Tops

Off the tops help to create the illusion of broader shoulders. You can also use this tip with a one-piece.

Wrap Tops

Wrap-style bikini tops help to give the appearance of a slimmer waist. It will also showcase your neck and shoulders.

Color-Blocking Swimming Suit

Color-blocking swimsuits- ones that are darker on the bottom and brighter on the upper body make the pear-shaped bodies look great by emphasizing the upper half.

Voluminous Bikini Tops

Voluminous bikini tops will add volume to your bust, average or smaller in the pear body shape. This is especially great for those who do not want to show cleavage.

Voluminous tops come with ruffles, fringes, frills, textures, and prints, which enhance and put attention to the bust.

Scrunched Bikinis

Scrunched bikinis are great for all body types! They make your booty look great, even if it is flat. And they are flexible in design, so if you want your cheeks to be covered, you can go for that!

What to Avoid for Pear Shaped Body?

Horizontal waistbands

They make your waist look bigger.

Tight-Fitting Clothes

They will make you look bigger than you are. So choose swimsuits that have some flow to them or are more relaxed.

Small Prints and Busy Patterns

They will make you look big, so go for larger prints or patterns.

Side Ties

They draw attention to your hips, which is what we are trying to avoid!

Boy Shorts

Boy shorts tend to emphasize the lower half of the pear body shape.

Baggy Clothing

Tight clothing is not always the answer. Sometimes, baggy clothing can make you look even bigger than you are. So it is best to find a happy medium- not too tight and not too loose.

One Shoulder Tops

One-shoulder tops can look great on pear-shaped bodies. They help to broaden the shoulders, which makes the waist look narrower in comparison.
