If you are heavier on the upper half of your body, you want to either play down the size of your chest or make your lower body bigger. Try bottoms that are slightly more flared or more bold in patterns so as to look more proportionate. Stay away from tops with spaghetti straps, off-shoulder tops and bodycon skirts with no patterns.

For girls with pear figure, you want to make your upper body more pronounced for a more proportionate figure. Wear something loose on the top such as a off-shoulder or a top with bold patterns and fitting or A-line skirts. Stay away from deep v-necks and complicated patterns for your bottoms!
