Hiya, I'm going shopping this afternoon.
I'm a size 16 on top and 18 on the bottom and I fairly certain I'm a pear shape.

I need to get some smart clothes and I'm not sure what to look for that will suit me? Any suggestions? X

Dresses that are fitted at the waist, floaty skirts and cami tops, tunic tops.

I’m basically the same size and shape as you and I live mostly in skater dresses - fitted at the waist and flared over the hips and bum. For trousers I’d suggest high-waisted and skinny.

I’d avoid shift dresses (aka ones which aren’t fitted) - they just look like a potato sack on a curvier figure. Also baggy straight-legged trousers aren’t flattering for big bums imo

Agree with Ecto! I'm an 18 pear and wear mire or less what she has said but I am smaller on too then bottom so have become a fan of high waisted skirts and fitted tops tucked in as they flatter me.
