Pear Figure – An A-line silhouette will accentuate your figure without adding bulky weight to your bottom half. You may want to consider a V-neck to draw attention to your top half. Avoid super thin dress material, as they may highlight your larger assets.

Apple Figure – A sweetheart neckline will flatter your top and add a hint of cleavage without giving the game away. Stay away from super high necklines and some empire waists as they tend to make your bust look larger.
