      Pear-shaped figures can be worn in two general directions: contraction method and loose method. For the former, the tightening of the waist and the simplification of the upper body are very important. You can choose a waist or v-neck design, or use accessories such as belts or silk scarves to divert attention. For the latter, you can choose a loose skirt, which can cover your thighs and is very comfortable.

              We can break down these main categories into smaller groups to better tailor your body shape, but let's start with the basics for now. Don't worry, I'm here to make it easy for you!
              Bust – measure the fullest part of your bust. Make sure to hold the tape measure tight but not so taut that you squash your bust so you get a smaller measurement than you should.
              Waist – measure around the smallest part of your waist, usually just above your belly button.
              Hips – start at one hip and wrap the tape measure all the way around at the widest part.
              Loving and accepting yourself is crucial, and that includes embracing your own unique style.
