How can I emphasize my athletic, upper body?

I usually have a problem hiding my wide hips and plump thighs. I’m satisfied with my type of body which has been described as pear-shaped but I’d like to focus on emphasizing my athletic upper body. How do I do this?

If you have a pear-shaped body then you’d have wide hips, a defined waistline and small bust. The trick to dressing the pear shape is to work with styles that enhance and balance the upper body but minimize the lower body. A sheath, a baby doll style, an A-line silhouette and an empire waist show off your curves while reducing the width of your hips. You’d also want to draw the eye to your bosom in strapless and V-necklines.

Here are a few recommendations from Amiclubwear.

  1. You could substitute your sweets with fruits. But if your sweet tooth gets the better of you, you can make low calorie/low fat alternatives. You can use turbinado sugar, it’s a way healthier alternative to refined white sugar. Avoid whole milk and cream. Instead opt for low-fat and non-fat milk. Use low fat cream cheese if a recipe calls for it. Use whole wheat flour instead of white flour. I hope that encourages you to make your own desserts.
