Little Black Dress for Pear Shaped Figures

Updated on March 30, 2011

Having a pear shaped body means that the lower half of your body is wider than your upper half. Finding the right dress for this body shape may seem difficult at times, but it isn’t impossible. With the holiday season approaching and companies gearing up for the annual holiday party, there are many women hitting the malls and online stores for the perfect LBD (little Black Dress). It’s the perfect choice for those upcoming holiday event; in my search I have found the perfect little black dress for the pear shaped woman. I love the little black dress because it can suit many occasions and it also looks flattering on everyone.

Chadwicks Bead- Center Dress is beautiful. First, the sleeves are 3/4. This essential feature is stylish and brings more emphasis to the top portion of the body. Another consideration is the fabulous deep V neckline. The V neckline lengthens the neck and accents the face and bust line perfectly. An additional factor that I love about this little black dress is the empire waist with the striking embellishment right below the bust. These features are absolutely ideal for pear shaped bodies because they both place importance in the smallest point of the pear shaped figure, right under the bust. Also, there is a small amount of fabric gathered at this area. This creates attractive and slimming draping down the length of the dress. A further exceptional aspect of the dress is the A line skirt. A-line simply means that the skirt is shaped like the letter A and floats away from the lower half. Both the draping and the shape of the skirt minimize the hips and thighs. Furthermore, the hem hits right above the knee. This length is just right as it helps create a longer and shapelier leg line.


  • Bulky, colorful necklaces would be the perfect match for a pear shaped figure in a killer LBD.
  • Find some gorgeous heels to make your legs look even longer.
  • Small clutches are popular this season and pair fabulously with the LBD.
  • Earrings are a must when going out. If your necklace is bulky, go for smaller earrings. If you want to add drama, buy large dangling earrings and skip the necklace all together.
  • Smokey eyes are a beautiful accent with a LBD. Check out the video at
