Everything You Need to Know About a Pear Body Shape
Do you have a rather generous bum area, while the rest of your body tends to be thinner? Then it is very likely for you to have the pear body shape, or triangle shape, as it is also called. In this situation, the hips are wider than the shoulders, and the waist is nicely marked. Because of this, you often need to get a bigger size for pants and skirts than what you may require for tops. You should not consider your body shape as disproportionate because it can be attractive if you are careful about what you eat, how you exercise and what you wear. The only downside is that when gaining weight, or chaotically losing weight, your body shape can shift, underlying some areas more than others, which will create an unbalanced appearance.
As mentioned before, pear shaped women have a lower body area that is larger than the upper one. So it is more than obvious that in the case of fat deposits, it will start by settling in the tummy, hips, and bottom area, and on your legs, first. Then, gradually, they will go up your body. This is why some women have enlarged hips and bum area, and rather skinny arms because this is how the pear body shape gains weight.
Health and diet foods
Wish to know what you can eat? Well, the biggest challenge is to lose weight efficiently, so that your body is fit and balanced. So you will need to be careful with what fats and how much of them you consume. Keep them down and focus more on a complex carbohydrates diet, consisting of lentils, beans, and whole-grain cereals. Proteins are also a must, introduced in your system by eating chicken and fish. Let us not forget about fresh fruits and veggies, which will give you everything you need to shed those pounds.
Pear body shape and exercise
Concerning exercising, what pear shaped women do most often is focus too much on their lower part of the body. They do too many lunges and other leg exercises, considering that this is a burning problem that needs to be solved. Well, there is nothing wrong in keeping your bum, legs and hips all nice and toned, but you should not forget about your upper part either. Through exercising, you will need to form a balance between these two areas, so shoulder, back, and arm exercising are a must. You need to develop beautiful muscles here as well, for example swimming should help you to give your upper body some volume.
Fashion for a pear shaped body
Besides a correct diet and exercising, clothes can also help your pear body shape look the best. Since your shoulders are narrower, you will need to pick tops that can bring some volume to this area. So go for ruffled tops, boat necks, with embellishments around the shoulders and bust area, and with structural sleeves. The waist should be properly market, to create an hourglass impression. So wear jackets that end above the widest part of your hips.
Empire style dresses and blouses are also recommended, together with anything that will make your waist be noticed quickly. Considering the bottom part, go for pants that have clean cuts and no embellishments. A darker colour and a line that falls straight from the widest part of your hips are also flattering and give your body a balanced look. And if you are in the mood for skirts, the A-lines will do the trick best in your case.
