    Ok I'm the typical pear shaped. I'm going to my best mates wedding at Easter. I want to look my best as in quite a posh hotel.

    I was thinking of getting a dress but not sure what style. I'm size 16 on top (the boobies lol) & 16/18 on the bottom depending on where from but hope to be a proper 16 by then.

    I seem to lose my weight from the bit just beneath my boobs & not where I want it to come off.

    Am I just safer sticking to black trousers & a tunic top???Help please.

    I'm in my early 30's so nothing 2 granny looking lol

    lol, go to debenhams, and get a nice dress, that's a halterneck. I find (being a big boobed lady myself) even in my bigger days it always made me look alot slimmer. a thick satin type material is best too, it slim, and looks fitted but doesn't cling like a loose material :)

    im sure you'l look beautiful! - and dont wear black! LOL xx

    You could also get a corset style top and a nice A line skirt.

    Are you a real pear or actually an hourglass? If the latter then you could get a pencil skirt that flicks out at the bottom.

    Oh my goodness! I didn't realise Monsoon did 'proper' sizes - I thought it was all skinny-minx (ie 16 & under) stuff!

    Wow, if I could afford it I'd shop!

    My Dort(18) is a pear shape and she looks best in a dress that's gathered under her bust (she often wears stretchy belts to accentuate this). However we've discovered for her she has to follow certain 'rules'.
    They are: sleeves are necessary to balance the hip/shoulder (she sometimes wears shrugs if necessary)
    Necklines have to be a 'v' shape or a fairly low scoop to elongate the neck area (women usually have fantastic skin here so show it off)

    Here's an article I've found

    in my what not to wear book in says pears should wear a stapless style dress (to boarden your shoulders) which has a flared skirt.
    gok says to go for a full lenght dress or a shirt dress
