    I think I’m a pear shaped. I’m small up top and carry most of my weight in my bottom half. I am going to wear a mermaid dress. I love my big behind! I don’t want to hide it!

    This is my dress and I am definitely going to get it altered to be a trumpet! I am definitely pear shaped and all the trumpet dresses I tried on I just loved.

    My chest is definitely a lot smaller than my hips/thighs but i have broad shoulders.  I thought the straps on my dress help to balance out my body so it looks more hour glass shaped and less pear

    i’m a chubby pear (~10 and 36C on top and ~14 on bottom…when i was skinny i was a 4/34B and 8 on bottom), and i plan on wearing a trumpet/fit-and-flare gown.  i haven’t found it yet, but i’ve already tried some on and with the right draping and accents they’re SUPER flattering.  strapless, even!  i say rock it.  the one thing i wouldn’t do is the abrupt, wrapped in shrink-wrap 3/4 of the way to the knees and then mini-ballgown mermaid style…i feel like that will accent how big the butt is, lol.

    I would have definitely chosen a mermaid dress if for not my opinionated groom telling me did not like that style. Rock your body if you feel beautiful there is NO way you can’t look beautiful!!

    This is my dream mermaid.

    Lazaro..of course 🙂

    I’m a pear shape, and I LOVE my trumpet dress! I tried on huge ballgowns, and I just did not think they did anything for my figure. I think people with hourglass figures/hips look best in trumpet/mermaid personally.

    @nickie362:  if you love it, rock it!  who am i to discourage you?  lol.  i think it might be a personal hangup for me that i just don’t like that style mermaid, so i’ve justified not liking it by saying it looks bad on my body type.  and even if it does look bad on MY body type, not all pears are created equal!

    I LOVE mermaid styles, and I LOVE women who rock their curves!!!

    If it is what sings to you, then go for it! Don’t look back!

    I have a very smallish chest and larger hips, and I just love dresses that hug my hips! My only prerequisite is that I can walk in the dress, without making tiny toddler steps LOL!!
