One of the most difficult things of being a woman is trying to find flattering clothes all the time. As every type of body is different, girls often come across trends or pieces they don’t know how to wear or if they can really work with them.

Among all the body types we can find in women, one of the most popular is the pear-shaped. This kind of figure is present in women with hips wider than their shoulders, which gives a perfect name for the category. Being the hips the most prominent part here, the key task is giving the body a little balance. In that line, things like accentuating the waist, and highlighting the top parts (shoulders, back), are perfect. Which dresses can make you use to rock your beautiful body? Let’s see some options!
