Leggings – For the Pear Shaped Woman

I was asked recently, if the pear shaped woman should wear leggings? The answer is a great big yes. Leggings are great for the pear shape, the triangle the hourglass. Any woman who has an ample bottom should consider leggings.

The legging is great because it gives you a smooth look. Choose a darker color. Oh heck with leggings you can even get away with a bright color, the trick is your top.

You want the top you wear to be:

  • A tunic
  • A big shirt
  • A sweater with some length to it
  • A short, flirty trapeze dress

The idea is to make your top stand out. Your top should be long enough to cover your bottom. With the close to your body fit of a legging and a happy, hip hiding top your bottom can’t help but look slimmer.
