I’ve been following your blog for awhile now. It’s fabulous. I’ve definitely figured out that I am an 8 shape but, I’m having trouble with figuring out a casual style. I’m a jeans and t-shirt kind of gal with the body of someone who looks best in pencil skirts. I’m tired of looking like a frump however my lifestyle and my job (I work in scrubs) don’t really suit dressing up. Can you help?
Hi, I recently stumbled across your blog when looking to revamp my wardrobe, owing to weight gain. (I was skinny and got away with most things) I think there is a wealth of information and your blog is fabulous.
Here is my question. How do you a dress a short waisted petite pear shaped person, esp. casual? I am 5’1 with 36-29-39 measurements. Wide hips with a flatish bum. The closest body shape is possibly the skittle, more than pear. No high hips. So not an 8. Almost everything seems to be contradictory. From showing off the waist and high rises (for pears) and wearing empire cuts and low rises (for short waists). Flattering tops are impossible to find. Please help.
I also went through almost all the comments in related articles, but couldnt find answers. Is there an article I am missing?
Hi Lalita – yes there is often contradictory advice because body shape is only one element of the equation. It’s what my mother would have called “swings and roundabouts” as in you have to decide which bits bother you most. Do you want to look longer waisted – the work with the proportional rules (and I often think that proportion can be more important than body shape). I would try a high rise (it’s often more about comfort and fit) but wear your tops over the top rather than tuck – that way you get the best of both worlds.
