Let’s get to work:

Tops

So we know that for all you pears, drawing attention up and away from your ‘thunder thighs’ or your ‘bootylicious’ behind can be one of the first things that you want to do. Wearing, bright, bold prints on top is a great way to do this.

We love this Animal Print Long Sleeve Shirt from the M&S Curve Collection. We recommend wearing the shirt with the top two buttons undone with a came worn underneath (if you want) to create a flattering V neck.

High necks, in general, can be a no-no for the pear body shape as they can emphasize how small top half is, compared to your bottom half, so if you do like to wear a shirt to work then we would always recommend wearing it with the top button undone.

Jackets

Blazers can work really well for the pear body shape, especially if they have structured shoulders, but try to look for short, or cropped styles that finish before the hips.

Dresses

Every pear NEEDS to have a wrap dress in their closet. It’s super flattering for your shape and is very office appropriate.

We love this Navy and White Striped Wrap Dress from Yours Clothing.

While we would prefer the pattern to be in just the top half for the pear body shape, the vertical stripes actually guide the eye down, skimming over your problem areas. And we just adore the little kick in the skirt.

Trousers

Wide leg trousers or trousers that fall from the widest part of your waist work best. So when you are looking for workwear for the pear body shape, scroll past all those skinny fits.
