pear shaped

We are not one size fits all. A pear shape woman is similar to curvy shape, with one difference. 

Generally, pear shaped women are smaller on the top and have fuller thighs & a larger behind.

But, ‘generally’ doesn’t fit all. You may be a pear shape but still have a different look than other pear shaped women. 

Option 1: Modest Swim Suits for Pear Shaped Women

One pieces can still look good even with very modest taste. If you have a curvy shape, try to:

  • less cleavage
