Are you a Pear? Here are some top tips to dress for your shape from Trinny & Susannah.

A common shape for women – small boobs, long waist, flat tummy but saddlebags and heavy legs that determine your wardrobe choices.

CELEBRITY INSPRIATIONThink Katie Holmes and Sandra Bullock.

SHOP FOR Your wardrobe should always show off your top half. Broaden your shoulders with feminine shirts, high-cut tops and horizontal stripes. A glamorous shrug is also a fabulous way tp attract attention to your top half.

Wide leg trousers and straight heels and wedges will also play to your shape’s strengths. A good alternative to torusers is a long A-line skirt.

AVOID: Best to keep the short dresses, mini skirts and skinny jeans to an absolute minimum.
