Result: You have a pear shaped body type!

A pear shaped body type has narrow shoulders. Fuller butt and thighs are also characteristic of a pear shaped body type. The most important thing about this body shape is to balance the narrow upper body with the wider hip. You fit perfectly in soft and feminine A-shaped models that bring out the waist, e.g., wrap dresses and princess models in round shapes and fabrics that fall softly. The models can be close-fitting, but looser tops also fit you very well.

You can advantageously have some puff sleeves, large shawls and larger necklaces to draw the eye to the upper part of the body and to add some mass to the shoulder area. And if you for some reason want to tone down your thighs and bum, it can be good to wear plain dark bottoms and focus on the upper part of your body with stretchy tops, tunics and dresses in lovely colors and patterns. It can be a challenge for you to find good models that fit well both over the shoulders and hips because they are of different sizes.
