Jul 23, 2009

Having full hips isn’t something to hide. It’s something to celebrate. As you start looking for the right prom dress to dance the night away in, remember that it’s important that you dress for your unique shape and get that perfect look that will make the night unforgettable. To help you do that, offers up these great tips for dressing for your pear shape.

First off, know that a-line and full ball gown skirts are your friend. These gorgeous silhouettes will help to balance at your body and celebrate your womanly figure. In addition, they’re some of the most versatile dress types out there. Always avoid hip hugging styles like the sheath or mermaid, which can make you look thick.

Next, look to emphasize your middle and bust by choosing a neckline that’s a spaghetti-strap or a V-neck. Don’t plunge too low and look to instead flatter your collarbone and emphasize your bust. Choose a dress that features most of its detailing above the waist and that helps to slim your torso.
