We know what dress will flatter your figure. All you have to do is follow these rules ... provided by the pros, of course
If you have a pear body shape, you definitely want a gown to highlight everything from the waist up. "Make sure the bust of the gown is fitted so there is a balance between the upper part of your body and your lower," says Wolford. As for the bottom half of the dress, look for one that flares out into a full skirt. "Think of a retro ball gown style with a flirty layered tulle skirt," says Rygorsky.
And since you want to draw attention upward, think of ways to highlight your upper body. Rygorsky suggests looking for a dress with crystals around the neckline, while Cox adds that embellishments, beading, and even a lace overlay work well to play up your best assets.
