The big dilemma with the pear shape body type is trying to find the right clothes that balance out the proportions. Tunics are the answer! Tunics can be found in all styles, fabrics and prints for almost every occasion from casual to special occasion. The trick is making sure that when you do find a tunic that you like, that it should flow straight down from your shoulders to the hemline. If it bunches or clings at the hips then it is either too small or not the right fabric. Below is a Zen Knits tunic featured cruise print.
If your shoulders are substantially narrower than your hips, and/or yours hips are wider than you probably fall into this category of “pear shape”. Try to avoid clothes that cling to the hips. This would include most “fitted” styles. Go for fabrics that drape and flow.
