Women come in many shapes and sizes ... including the well-known pear-shape. Why is it called pear-shape? Well it's because it literally is a shape of a pear, small chest and waist then BAM! Hips and butt explosion. A little less T and a little more A. I personally like being a curvy pear ... I mean after all Beyonce is a famous pear, and her figure is to die for.
I have learnt to embrace my shape and have chosen to enhance my assets, if you have junk in the trunk then make it better! You can only change your body shape to a certain extent and everyone is built differently, so I always think just work with what you're given .. the whole 'when life gives you lemons' thingamabob.
HOWEVER... there are some things that will annoy a pear-shapee, mainly involving clothing dilemmas.
Not too much we can do about them ... so let's just laugh and joke about them instead.
1) Tight dresses and skirts.
Don't get me wrong, I love a good mini dress on a night out, but having to pull it down every 10 steps is pretty frustrating and if you don't your under cheeks will be on display for the whole world to see!
I'm not 100% why it does this ... maybe my butt wants to be seen by everyone ... but if it had a voice and it actually told me this I wouldn't listen. If I now buy tight fitting dresses I opt for a knee-length option as it is much more flattering for the figure; hence why Kim K is always sporting a knee-length but tight dress. Or you can go for an a-line dress for a good daytime look. The same applies for skirts.
2) Wearing shorts
So, I bought a lovely pair of shorts last summer - wore them once, or twice - haven't worn them since! Why? They make my legs look like tree trunks ... the trouble is when you're a shorter pear-shape you have short stocky legs ... and shorts just make them look even more tree-trunky and short. If that wasn't bad enough they also ride-up in the middle between the thighs because .. you know thigh-gap doesn't exist with us (and I don't want it to).
3) Bikini wedgies
Having to buy your bikini bottoms a size bigger from the top and if you don't ... your butt will eat your bikini bottoms and will be lost forever.
4) Skinny jeans
Putting on skinny jeans takes just too long, usually involving cramming your butt into the jeans once you've managed to hike them up in the first place. Then you have to jump up and down a few times whilst pulling them up some more. I don't understand why they're so popular as they're so uncomfortable! If I was rich I would have them custom made like Kim K, but even then I would just stick to dresses I think.
But for now I guess the only way to avoid these problems is just to wear the right style of clothing for your body shape. Ooh yeahhh, embrace the pear like you just don't care.
I would love to hear if you guys have any other pear-shape dilemmas!
