Blog #2 in the series of shopping your body shape, involves a particular body type that is very popular, actually it is the most common figure proportion for women – pear shaped body type. Think, Kim Kardashian, or Nicki Minaj. These women are proud of having junk in the trunk, and we are proud of them. That’s right, these are the women with the pear shaped body types. Having a pear-shaped body means that you have a smaller bust and smaller waist, but wider hips. So the widest part of your body is below your waist, around your hips. Shaped like a pear. Remember, you can be tall, short, heavy, or skinny and still be a pear shaped body type.

If you’re a pear, your goal when shopping your shape is to elongate your figure so that you look less bottom-heavy. The first line of attack to reaching this goal is to balance your hips and your shoulders while showing off your curves. The key here is to accentuate your top half. So count on fun top prints or designs, details along the neck. A great swimwear designer such as Mar De Rosas features hand-crafted embellishments that do just that.


We have chosen a highly selective group of swimwear from our inventory that fits perfectly for your pear shaped body type. What also helps are the swimsuits which you can purchase top and bottom in different sizes to accommodate different proportions of the body. Check out what we’ve come up with.
