These 5 things should not be worn by women with a pear shape: they will add pounds and shorten their legs. Photo.
Women's figures are conventionally divided based on the volume of the buttocks, hips, shoulders, chest or waist. The "pear" type is characterised by narrow shoulders, a thin waist and wide hips.
Each type should choose clothes that emphasise the advantages of the figure and hide the disadvantages. Women with a pear-shaped figure should avoid things that visually shorten their legs and add pounds. OBOZREVATEL will tell you what doesn't look good on women with curvy hips (scroll to the bottom of the page to see the photos).
Ladies with curves should avoid horizontal stripes on their clothes, as they focus attention on "problem areas" and add pounds. It is better to choose striped clothes in favour of vertical designs.
Tight trousers, skirts, dresses
Very tight trousers and skirts will emphasise the hips and add asymmetry to the look. It is better to open and tighten the most fragile parts of the body - collarbones, waist, shoulders or hands.
Bright colours and large prints on the lower body
As it has already become clear, women with voluminous forms should not focus on them. A bright design or a large print, drawing or inscription will attract too much attention.
Voluminous cargo-style pockets are not a good option for a pear-shaped figure. Large pockets will further expand the outfit and make the hips look plumper.
Low-heeled shoes, especially ballet flats, will shorten your legs. Women with a pear shape should visually make their legs longer to get closer to the "ideal proportions". Heels, wedges or platforms will help with this.
