Prom night is by far one of the most important parts of any teenager’s life. It is a time when they are starting to bloom for a mere bud into a beautiful spring flower. They need to make sure they look their very best for their special night. That’s why it’s important to consider your body shape to help you select the perfect dress for your prom.

Teenagers who have pear shaped figures are typically characterized by a slightly heavy bottom, sloping shoulders, slim neck line and bigger hips and lower thighs. 

More About Pear Shaped Figures

This is certainly one of the most common body types of many teenagers. The good news is there are loads of options to help you look sensational on prom night. Visit our website at www.promdressshop.com to see what we mean.

For pear shaped bodies, less is definitely more. The tighter, the better, too. Well-fitted dresses will contour your body into a lovely shape while redefining your shape into a seductive silhouette.

If you’re already shopping around to get the latest homecoming dresses at Prom Dress Shop, choose a dress that will highlight your slim neck, shapely waist, and well-formed shoulders. A perfectly balanced dress with the right cuts will make you look somewhat lighter on prom night.

Here are some more tips to help you shine on prom night.

  1. Strapless Prom Dresses

As a way of balancing your heavier bottom, pick a well-designed strapless dress. Wearing a halter neck dress and showing off some skin will go a long way to emphasizing your shapely hips and spaghetti strap dresses will make your shoulders look broader, redefining and balancing your figure.

  1. Ball Gowns For Prom

Ball gowns of all styles and colors have always been a top choice for prom night dresses. This is especially true for pear shaped figures. It’s the ideal solution for pear shapes since ball gowns have a fitting upper part with flaring bottom and that lessens the emphasis on your heavier bottom while highlighting slimmer top.

In fact, ball gowns will make your shape look more hourglass in form since they hide your bigger hips and thighs. This is by far one of the best choices for you.

  1. Empire Cut Dresses for Prom

We cannot go without mentioning empire cut dresses for prom. They’re also perfect for pear shaped teenagers since the higher waistline and flaring skirts hide that heavy bottom. Instead of showing off your hips and thighs, you can cover them up with a well-fitted empire cut dress in a range of colors and embellishments. The best part about empire dresses is that they accentuate the bust and arms and drag attention upwards, away from the bottom.

As for shoes, choose high heels with heavier designs. Slim stilettos won’t suit your look at all. Also, stay away from shoes with ankle straps that only serve to make legs look bigger. 

The Bottom Line

Pear shaped dresses that have bottom portions are a lot more free-flowing and work to camouflage the lower body while highlighting your slender torso.

Long evening gowns and A-line prom dresses with an empire waist are ideal for pear shaped figures. To emphasize your neckline, choose a dress that showcases your arms and shoulders such as a halter neck or spaghetti strap option.
