Body shapes - how to choose the best gown for you

Today’s post – Triangle (aka Pear)

The “Triangle” aka “Pear”… Women with a “Pear” shape body generally have a lean torso with a smaller bust and waist, then tend to be larger in their hips, thighs and bottom.

Some classic “Pear” shaped celebrities are the bootylicious Beyone, curvaceous Jennifer Lopez and the sweet and demure Kristin Davis.
The “Pear” shape, like the “Hourglass” we covered last week, has a sexy curvy figure. As you can see “Pear” shaped celebrities, Beyonce, Jennifer and Kristin, all opt for gowns that accentuate their busts and tiny waists, their dresses then have a flowing shape to cover their larger bottom half, which is usually the area “Pear” girls are more self-conscious about.

So, think you have a “Pear” shaped figure? Trying to find gowns that work for you? Below we have just a few of the many choices available to the “Pear” shaped bride.

Karen Willis Holmes Betsy, Bethany and Chelsea gowns (L-R)
‘Betsy’ with its ruched bodice and full tulle skirt is a fantastic gown for a “Pear” shaped girl. The sweetheart neckline with the soft cap sleeves frames your face and highlights your upper frame. The corseted lower line bodice is great for accentuating your waist, and the full skirt hides your hips and thighs. Covered in spot tulle, ‘Betsy’ gives you a very sweet, 50’s-fun look.

‘Bethany’ is a pretty option for a “Pear” shape. With adorable lace cap sleeves and a slimming sash around the waist, ‘Bethany’ emphasises your waist and encases your beautifully shaped torso and bust. An a-line skirt skims your thighs and hips to create a flattering look that enhances your beautiful shape.

With such gorgeous shoulders and bust, a strapless sweetheart neckline is also a fantastic choice for a “Pear” body shape. ‘Chelsea’ has a corseted bodice to highlight your waist, then carries through to a fuller skirt and dramatic train detail. The full tulle skirt covers your bottom half, while the gathered layered trains, create drama giving you a confidence boost knowing you are showing off your best assets.

These are just three gown choices from our collection, but with choices like these, as a “Pear” shaped girl, you know you have it covered! Go for gowns that really accentuate the features you are most confident with, and you can’t go wrong for your big day.
