How to dress for your shape!
your upper body is smaller than your lower body. may have a long neck and narrow shoulders, small to medium bust,defined waist,fuller calves and curvy hips. as a pear shape you should always emphasize your face,neck and waist.try to wear wide neck colorful tops and flowy comfortable bottoms. straight skirts and maxi dress look amazing on pear shape.
the women with athletic body type have straight toned figure, broad shoulders, toned arms,square hips and not much curves.you need to create curves by wearing certain type of cloths. wear flowy loose tops ruffles or lace to enhance the bust line and soften the shoulder.loose top with belt to add waistline with bubble skirt or a dress with belt is good option.
they have fuller breast with wide back mostly slim arms and shoulders could be wide. having slim arms and legs can be used to your advantage. you can look more slimmer with fitted figure flattering dress. for tops try to pick styles with empire waist that begins under the bust to draw attention away from your stomach. V-neck plus size top and dresses or skirts with fuller silhouette to hide stomach area.
