To be able to choose the perfect bikini for the pear shape firstly you need to understand your body shape and what areas you should draw attention to and what areas you should draw attention away from.
To create that body balance the pear shape woman should take emphasis away from the hips and draw it to the top half of your body. As bikinis are separate tops and bottoms they can be mixed and matched using design, pattern and colour to create that perfect bikini for a pear shaped woman.
Bikini Tops for Pear Shaped Women
Pear shaped figures should go for halter neck tankini tops, they will help to maximise the bust and broaden the shoulders too. Halter neck bikinis are also perfect for creating a fab cleavage and will help draw eyes up top.
Opt for padding in your tankini top and go for any length you feel comfortable in, if you don’t want to bare your stomach to all, then remember there are control tops available that help define a waist.
Pear and boyish figures will look fab in bandeau costumes, being smaller up top will suit the style of the swimsuit. They will also create the appearance of a more curvy, feminine you with it’s almost sweetheart neck line.
For pear shapes or women who don’t need the full support of an under-wired bikini consider a more padded non-wired top, this will help you appear bigger up top if that’s what you’re aiming for.
String bikinis don’t provide much support so are more suited to pears and boyish figures that tend have smaller and pert boobs. The triangle cups come with padding and without some even come with removable padding so if you want to appear fuller go for one with more padding.
Bikini Bottoms for Pear Shaped Women
Stick to high cut bottoms to help lengthen and slim out your legs, however if you’re happy with your shape then boy-shorts are a great way to flaunt big bums.
If you a pear shape with short legs then stick to costumes that are high cut to help elongate them and give the look of slimmer legs.

Avoid bikini bottoms with side ties that fall on the hips as this will draw attention to that area and make you look bigger.
Avoid bikini bottoms that have a broad waistband that runs horizontal across the hips as again this emphasizes the hips. The same rule applies or horizontal stripes
When it comes to bikinis for some reason the less fabric your wearing the smaller you appear. This means that although string bikini bottoms do have full coverage over the bottom the minimal amount of fabric over the hips means that they suddenly appear smaller then they are, perfect for pears!
