Picking out the perfect prom dress is all about knowing how to dress your body. Every girl’s body is different and picking out the best prom dress is all about showing off your assets and hiding your flaws. Prom Dress Shop wants to help you find the perfect prom dress 2013 for your body, so here are some helpful tips and tricks for pear shaped girls. Pear shaped girls tend to have larger hips and thighs with a smaller upper half. This is one of the most common and easiest body shapes to dress for.


Sherri Hill 1456 Pear Shape Prom Dress

This gorgeous Sherri Hill prom dress (style #1456) is perfect for a pear shaped girl. Pear shaped girls should wear fitted corset tops or dresses with thick straps to bring attention towards the upper half. The asymmetrical one-shoulder strap on this dress that is decked out with sequins and beadings is going to bring attention to the upper half of the dress. The ruched bodice on the dress is going to be flattering and make the bust line look bigger. The A-line chiffon skirt on this dress gently floats away from the body and balances out the bottom and top half while hiding any tummy a girl might be insecure about.


Jasz Couture 4736 Pear Shape Prom Dress

If a short prom dress is more you style, this beautiful watermelon colored Jasz Couture dress (style# 4736) is also great for a pear shaped girl.  This beautiful beaded halter dress with a deep V-neckline brings attention to the top half of the dress, while making your cleavage look bigger as well. The crisscross beaded straps across the empire waist bring highlight the smallest part of a girl’s body and the sexy cut-out show off some skin. The short A-line skirt balances out the dress and look gorgeous against the open back of this dress.

Pear shaped girls should really try to stay away from Mermaid prom dresses which are just going to draw attention to your lower half, or really tight clingy fabrics. Also avoid drop-waited dresses which are just going to draw attention to your hips. Ball gowns are fine as long as the skirt isn’t overly embellished but avoid ruffled skirts that just add extra volume to your lower half.
