How to dress for your body shape: Triangle (Pear)

The Triangle body shape is the hallmark of at least 20% of all women, and is characterized by hips that are wider than the bust measurement. Triangle shapes, also known as Pear shapes, often have a trim waist and a full bottom.

Triangles can draw attention upward by wearing a wide neckline like an elegant boat neck. An A-line dress will glide right over full hips and thighs and look great on you! Another great silhouette for a Triangle shape with a small to medium bust line is an A-line empire waist dress which, depending on the style, can add volume to the bust. The goal with the hem length is have a balanced distance from the hip to the hem. For petites, knee length is good and for taller frames, a longer length keeps things in proportion. Keep in mind that if you choose an A-line that is too short it can draw attention to the hip line.
