Pear shaped bodies are the most common body shape and the least catered to. We’ve put together some helpful information so you can look your best this summer!
Don’t hate your bottom half, remember that you are blessed to have such a slim upper half and don’t be afraid to flaunt it! Printed tops with embellishment or details will draw the eyes upward, away from your lower half.
Look for swimsuits with mix and match separates so you can get a decorative top and plain black bottoms. It’s a well-known secret to wear black on whatever part of your body you want to hide. Then look for white swim tops with padding or other breast-enhancing features to create balance.
If you want to be extra modest, choose a swim skirt or skirted swimsuit bottom in a dark shade. Be careful not to buy any bottoms with ruffles or extra material as this will add to your bulkiness. Slim-fitting, straight skirts are much better. Remember that extra material may make you think you are hiding problem areas, but it’s actually letting people know what you are most self-conscious about.
