Swimwear Shopping Guide for the PEAR Shape Beauty
The Pear Shape: You're curvy at the hips and thighs and smaller on top, like Beyoncé, j-Lo, and Jennifer Love Hewitt.
What to look for: The key to the perfect swimsuit is balancing your proportions and getting the coverage you need for your bottom half.
Tips and tricks from Indira Pereira, fit and style experts for The Beach Company:
- For a traditional fix, look for a clean-skirted bottom that falls just below the largest part of the upper leg.
- Avoid reaching for a boy short or thick-banded bottom. The extra fabric will only call attention to the area you're trying to mask.
- A plunging neckline or eye-catching top draws the eye upward, minimizing the bottom.
