You can swear by this rule and look flattering irrespective of your size once you start following this rule. Read on and know the art of dressing up according to your body type:

1.     For the hourglass/Pear: You are a Pear/hourglass shape if you have Big hips, narrow waist, upper body is very small, lower body is large.Seems like you?? Then read on:
  • You should opt for Flared bottoms as they can make your hips look narrow. This balances your body and takes attention away from your hips.
  • Avoid baggy style, drop crotch styles, pleated denims as these may add weight around the hip areas.
  • Avoid Bling, sparkles or any sort of embellishments on the front and back pockets of the denims, this will only draw attention to problem areas.
  • Avoid wearing wear tank tops, spaghetti and tight t-shirts just because you have a thin upper body. This will only make your lower body look hugely dis-proportionate. Go for short sleeved shirts, one shoulder blouses and tops, ruffles shirts and tops instead.
