For pear shaped girls, it can be a bit difficult to decide what kind of prom dresses that you would like. Do you want to look into cocktail dresses? Short dresses? Formal dresses? It can be hard to decide with such a unique shape.
First of all, choose a lower back. While it might seem a bit unusual, it helps to draw the attention to your top half and away from your booty. The neckline should be lower, but not too low. If you can find a few prom dresses that overlap in the bust area or bunches up, or has a bow or some other detail that will draw attention to that area and keep it away from your butt. Shorter skirts also help. Make sure that they aren’t poofy, but a little bit of flaring out wouldn’t hurt either.
In the same mindset, but in reverse, you can also draw attention to that feature. After all, if you can’t beat it, accentuate it! Choose small details—you don’t want to overdo it. This could include small bows or sequins or a clingy skirt. Try to make sure that your top half still gets some attention—again, you don’t want to overdo it. If you can choose a prom dress with a diamond in the front that will help to offset your tummy and everything else accordingly, that’s another choice that you might want to look into.
