    What brand of Jeans or styles do you recommend for pears. I never wear trousers and all the straight leg jeans have an old-fashioned high waist that makes my pear “seat” look even bigger!

    7Seven for All Mankind makes a great straight cut that’s low rise (Kimmie). And they tend to have a smaller waist with a wider thigh.

    Paige denim is great for flattering the backside. If you want a lower rise, try the Skyline Straight.

    And AG makes a tomboy that’s not too baggy I also like the Stevie cut

    Good luck!

    I love the division on different body shape, very smart choice, I have the “Pear Type” and I’m really proud of that. I think these dress by it’s ok for my shape…. highlights the right spots

    Hi Reachel,
    I need help!!
    First of all, I think i´m a pear. I´m 5´4´ tall and have broad shoulders, somewhat broad hips and plenty of tush. :-) I would describe my bust size as almost zero. (like really veeeerrryy small.)So mostly it´s pretty hard for me to find the right clothes. Pants are too tight around the hips and too long as well. And blouses and tops are tailored to fit women who can “fill” them out, which i never do.
    So do you have tips on how to help with that, expecially also with bathing suits?
    Thank you and greetings from Germany!

    “Any type may become less dramatic through diet and exercise, but it is nearly impossible to switch body types.”
    Ah, thank you. I have an autoimmune disease that makes it really difficult to gain wait so my measurements were between lower, linear, and middle. Before I developed the disease I always had a flat stomach, but chunky thighs and butt. 😀 I noticed the pocket issue with the pants too and hated pants without pockets. I would not have easily figured out what type I am without that quote in the video. Thanks. :)
