But, before you do that, maybe you should  put your body shape into consideration and find a perfect dress that way. When choosing a dress, it is important to feel good, emphasize advantages and hide some imperfections in order to look amazing. It is not rare that women are unhappy with their body or with their dress, but maybe the reason for that is not knowing their own body type.


Pear body shape is stronger in the hips. They are wider than waist and bust, and lower part of the body is stronger than the upper part. Pear is the most common body type. If you have that body type, try wearing clothes that emphasizes the upper part. Dresses that put emphasis on the shoulders, sweetheart and V necklines will look great on you. Dresses should be A cut. It is also good to play with colors. Choose dresses with colorful upper parts and slightly darker lower part. This way, all of the attention will be on the upper part of your body.
