Like most women I now know, after hitting puberty, my body shape changed from a gangly stick figure to a curvy, pear shape. At 37 years old, (yes, I am proud of my age AND my body!) I am no longer concerned with quick fixes or extreme diets and have taken ownership that my body is shaped like a pear.

Before having children, I was size extra small on top (size 2). After having my son and losing the 80lbs. I gained from being pregnant, (and getting sick – which is another story, for another blog post) I am now a small or medium on top (size 4-6).

Having a small waist and big booty gives me curves and makes me feel beautiful and feminine. I am larger on bottom than I am on top. I am Pear… hear me ROAR!!! On bottom, I wear mostly a medium size bottom to size large (size 6-10 – depending upon the brand and designer).

Being pear shaped presents certain challenges. For instance, when I work out, I need longer length workout tops that sit below my waist because, I hate the way a short top will curl at the bottom, rolling up onto my waist. Palmbeachathleticwear.com has many flattering fitness tops that I love. One awesome top that fits me perfectly is the Olivia Long Fitness Top in White. It is beautiful and fits me comfortably, while elongating my body with its simple and elegant design. This longer length top covers my middle and is not too revealing. The best part about this athletic top? It’s on SALE! Save over  $17 on this fitness staple that should be in EVERY women’s fitness closet!  Wearing a solid color on top, for women that are pear shaped, is a good thing. It showers attention and focus on a toned upper body, while drawing the eye away from the booty.

For me, like most pear shaped women that like working out, fitness bottoms are tricky. I prefer lower waisted athletic wear bottoms that are usually Capri length or boot cut longer length fitness pants. Wearing printed fitness bottoms, for women with a little more junk in their trunk (like me!) is essential. I used to think wearing colorful, printed pants would magnify my bottom. Wearing prints that swirl, are fun and colorful, does the exact opposite… They minimize and slim. My favorite printed fitness Capri pants from Palm Beach Athletic Wear this season? The Dia Skulls Printed Capri length pants! If you prefer a longer length pant, try these Protokolo Patch Print Pants (another must have for this Summer)!
