Pear or Triangle Body Shape, Personal stylist, Personal Shopper


Dressing your body shape is part and parcel of accessing the tools that will make you look good on the outside which in the end affects how we feel on the inside, but it is important that there is a balance of self-love on the inside as well as the outside.  Following the guidelines will help you look fantastic but it's just as important to embrace your shape and love who you are from the inside out.

The Triangle is the most common female shape.

The Triangle Body Shape is often referred to as the 'Pear' Shape.  Characteristic of the Triangle Body Shape include, narrow shoulders, a small waist and large hips.  This is a bottom-heavy frame common for full thighs and a heavy bottom which will be at lease 7.5 cm larger than the full bust line.

The Triangle is a beautiful feminine body shape and can be balanced easily by visually broadening the upper Body.

Let's take a look at the basic breakdown of the Triangle.

  • Full hips or thighs
  • A defined waist
  • Shoulders narrower than hips
  • A small top half as well as bust
