Pear, Strawberry or Apple?

There are 3x keys to dressing your body shape…

  • Balance

  • Flaunt your assets

  • Confidence



You carry your weight around your mid section and don’t have a well-defined waist. You do however have great legs and/or boobs, so flaunt them baby!


  • Show off your best bits, whether it is your boobs or legs… but remember dressing is a balancing act… choose 1x asset to flaunt at a time (Cleavage and short skirts only scream one thing)

  • Empire lines and longer length tops will flatter your figure

  • Low necklines will draw the eye upwards


  • Avoid adding volume round your middle section

  • Stay away from short boxy jackets … they are not your friend

  • Nor are pleated or tiered skirts



Bigger up the top than their bottom half because of broad shoulders and/or big boobs in relation to your waist and hips. Broad shoulders or big boobs can make you look top heavy, but here are a few simple ways to soften your shape…


  • Fuller skirt and wide leg trousers will balance out your body shape beautifully

  • Darker/brighter colours on the bottoms half

  • V necks and wrap tops are great for a big bust, plus the men love them!

  • Whatever you do, keep it simple on the top half


  • Shoulder pads & Epaulettes

  • Tapering trousers

  • Puff sleeves

  • Halter necks

  • Large waist belts only make your bust stand out even more as it frames the area, instead opt for longer more flowing lines from your hip and down



Many women would kill for your shape; there’s no main area you want to minimize and you can get away with most outfits. This means that your hips and bust are balanced and your waist is not very defined.


  • Structure is great for your figure when you clinch in at your waist with a belt … this will make you look more curvy

  • You can get away with high-necked tops, which are high in fashion so go crazy

  • Grab yourself a pair of high-high waisted, skinny leg jeans… Sexy as hell and will make you look extremely curvy

  • Do be confident and know that as mentioned previously, you can’t really do anything wrong… Enjoy it!


  • If anything, stay away from low rise jeans and trousers … this will make you more boxy



You have a fuller bust and bottom to contrast with the smaller waist… in other words, I’m jealous and you are lucky!


  • Wrap dress

  • Waist-clinching belts

  • Flared or wide leg pants


  • Shapeless baggy jumpers – definitely don’t throw them out, just keep them for around the house



You are bottom heavy – bigger around the hips, bottom or thighs, and you probably have a fairly flat stomach (lucky thing!)


  • Work with that womanly figure by adding more shape and structure above the waist

  • Bright or printed tops are great

  • Tops with large collar, lapels or sleeves

  • Layer big chunky jewellery around your neck

  • Keep skirts and pants simple

  • Straight cut trousers are great to balance out your silhouette


  • Avoid pencil, tube and fishtail skirts – tight fitting ones will only emphasise your hips and your lovely behind

  • Skinny jeans again will not help you unfortunately, but lets face it, they are so uncomfortable!
