“Confidence is the most beautiful thing a woman can wear.”
I believe comfort = confidence. Here is where I post clothes that I’ve found that fit me in a way that hides my insecurities and shows off my attributes. I feel comfortable and confident in them so if you’re a typical pear shape like me, I hope you feel great in them too!
This gorgeous, velvet, snake print jumpsuit is from River Island. I have always been weary of jumpsuits because they don’t leave much room to hide any lumps and bumps you might want to. However, the material and fit of this one isn’t clingy at all but shows off your figure in a really sophisticated way. It’s slightly big for me around the bust and the fit doesn’t enhance my boobs as I would have thought. Great if you don’t want them out at all but a very flattering neck line. But if you want cleavage, this isn’t the best jumpsuit for that.
I get so confused with jeans and always end up going for the same type. I’ve always wanted to wear boyfriend jeans but felt I didn’t have the figure for it. However, these ones from River Island were a great fit and with a pair of heels they stopped me feeling frumpy – perfect for a smart, casual look!
This skirt from ASOS is something I’ve been searching for for years! Being a pear shape, finding a skirt that fits my waist but isn’t too tight round my hips is a bit of a struggle. This wrap around style couldn’t be more perfect for my body shape.
This dress is one of those timeless classics that won’t go out of style and I know I’ll wear for years. It’s from House Of CB. It’s made of an elegant red satin material with lace details on the back. It’s the type of dress that you could wear to a wedding but also a night out. I absolutely love it! (As you can probably tell from the amount of photos I’ve uploaded of it!)
The last one for this week is this perfect light pink Silkfred jumpsuit. The material skims any lumps and bumps and has lovely split leg details which adds a subtly sexiness. Again, this could be worn on multiple occasions, from on holiday, to a night out, to Sunday lunch.
This dress is from In The Style. It’s crisp white which is lovely for summer and fans out over my hips, hiding my bum and thighs. I’m usually a size 12 but got a size 10 in this because it was quite loose on top around my waist. This dress is quite short at the front: I’m 5’8 and I recon its just about okay. This is worth baring in mind if you’re taller!
This number is from Dancing Leopard found on SilkFred. With some alterations, I’ve made it work for me. Originally, it’s very low cut and tricky to wear a bra with. I fixed this by tying the straps at the back together at the top. The problem then was that the slit was too high, so I sewed that to an appropriate height. They no longer appear to have the navy but have white, black and patterned.
This ASOS swimming costume is my favourite buy of the summer I think. Not only does it have a beautiful pattern, but the actual structure and fit of it is perfect. This is the first swimming costume I’ve ever worn as I was always sceptical about what it would make my bum look like. Plus the high rise fashion had my worried about my thighs. But I would actually say they looked better in this than in a bikini because the swimsuit hides my love handles. It also has really well structured padding around the bust, with a zip so it gives you a nice boost of cleavage. This combination gave me more of an hour glass figure. I was oozing with confidence around the pool in this!
I’ve had this dress for about 5 years and I still wear it all the time. This is from Forever21. It’s more of a blouse dress rather than the ever-so-popular shirt dress. I prefer this because it doesn’t cling whilst still showing off your shape in an elegant way. I like to dress this up with heels for a summer night out or down with sandals for BBQ’s or a shopping trip. I can’t find this exact dress because I bought it so long ago but I’ve found one similar and posted the link below.
