triangle_kimLucky you! You can bring all the attention to the top half of your body. You are often referred to as pear-shaped, so with your choice of clothes, you should aim to accentuate your bust and minimize your bottom and hips.

Your golden rules

  • Your jackets and tops need to finish either above or below the widest point of your hips and bottom.
  • Layering on your top half creates visual interest and draws the eye upwards.
  • Buy jackets or tops that fit your shoulders rather than your hips – you can always leave the bottom button undone.

Your clothing lines

  • Jackets with details, collars, pockets, buttons or double-breasted are excellent choices.
  • Tops that are patterned or have horizontal stripes. Twin sets.
  • Skirts should have simple lines: long flip, bias cut or panelled.
  • Pants should be plain, flat-fronted with size zip. Bootleg or flares are great for long legs.
  • Dresses with full skirts or stick to separates.
  • Coats should have square shoulders or wide collars.
  • Swimsuits should have detailing above the waist. Beware of high-cut styles that finish at your widest point.


What to avoid

  • Strait skirts
  • Too much detail or pattern on skirts or pants
  • Halter necks and raglan sleeves
  • Tight-fitting, single-layered tops
  • Tops and jackets that finish at your widest point
