Formal Dresses and Gowns for Pear-Shaped Figures

Find your perfect special-occasion designer dress for a pear-shape body type here. A pear-shape body type is characterized by a clearly defined waistline and hips or thighs that are larger than the bustline. This essentially means you are typically broader throughout the lower half and have a smaller upper body, so enhancement is key when it comes to choosing a prom gown. You may want to add volume, or the illusion of volume, to the upper body while emphasizing the waist and minimizing the lower body to create a balanced, hourglass appearance. For a pear-shaped body, a prom dress with a v-neckline will help draw attention to the upper body, while the tailor-fitted waistline of an a-line skirt can emphasize a small waist. However, to embrace the voluptuous, curvy figure of the pear-shape body type, try a form-fitting jersey dress that will help showcase a feminine silhouette. Whether you want to showcase or minimize your pear shape, shop this collection of designer prom dresses for pear shapes for your next special-occasion dress.
