Pear Body Shape by Laureen Couture

You have a Pear Body Shape if you are thinner on top with more curves/fullness on the bottom half.

Pear Body Shape


– Create balance for your shape by putting the attention on your upper half. Great options are one shoulder, strapless, v-neck, bateau or scoop necklines.

– Reduce attention your bottom half with ballgown or A-line silhouettes.


– Sheath: too clingy for your shape.

– Mermaid and Trumpet: puts attention on the wrong half of your body.

– Halter/High Neck: can create a disproportionate look.

Hourglass Body Shape

You have an hourglass body shape if your shoulders and hips are about the same width and you have a well-defined waist.

– Take advantage of your proportioned body shape and showcase your curves. While any wedding dress silhouette can do this, Sheath, Mermaid and

Trumpet will especially flatter you.

–  Showcase your defined waistline with Natural waistlines and waistline accents like a jeweled or ribbon belt.
