I am like you – pear shaped, but I also love to show off my curves.  Empire waists definitely make me look much bigger than I am.  A-lines make my waist look small, but because I have a short torso, I often look like all skirt.  I like to wear things that elongate my torso, which usually means longer and fitted.

If I did, I wouldn’t be able to wear anything! I tried a bit of research on it before dress shopping, and one site told me to wear a ball gown to balance out my chest and another site told me not to wear a ball gown because it would make me look even bigger on top. πŸ˜› After that, I just said screw it.

Well, I’m short so if I really went by fashion rules I’d never be able to wear capris, cropped pants, tunics, sweater dresses, leggings, etc. I guess there are some instances where leggings might make me look shorter but I love them so whatever. lol

i am not sure what fashion rules say for plus sized women…. but i went with a sweatheart neckline and a mermaid sillouette. very fitted and shows off the curves instead of hiding them πŸ™‚ i also rock the skinny jeans which is supposedly a no no for plus sized women….. hrrrmmmm what else? i wear low cut v neck shirt that accentuate the girls πŸ™‚ lol

@Mrs Grape: Lol, I’ve actually had a couple friends request that too :). I told Fiance I’m getting a reduction as soon as we have kids, lol.

I’m pear shaped as well.  I personally can’t stand fitted skirts on myself and only like wearing A-lines.  Empire waists work for me sometimes because I have a pretty small waist so it creates an hourglass shape.  I really really don’t wear skinny jeans.

@Mrs Grape: I think it depends on high the waist is.  I meant to say that I go for more sort of high waisted than empire right under the boobs, you know what I mean?  Hey, not saying it’s bad to rock the skinnies, I’m just way to concious of my butt right now!

Empire waists make me look preggo. I do not want to look preggo so why the hell would I wear them?

I’m a 34-24-38 girl so no matter what I wear, you know I’m curvy and there’s not much I can do to hide it, so I tell fashion to take a hike and I just wear what I like. That means T-shirts and jeans. Expect at work. They make me wear nice adult clothes. Boo to slacks and skirts. πŸ˜€

Not really, I am super petite, so I have been “told” not to wear capris, leggings, anything cropped, etc.  I don’t care if I look short, I AM short, haha! It’s not a surprise!
