How is a Pear-Shaped Body like? 


A pear-shaped body has a smooth triangle shape: Narrow shoulders and wider hips, with rounded bum and thighs. Unlike the triangle shape, pear-shaped women seem more proportioned, this meaning their waist is usually well defined. Some celebrities, such as Beyoncé and Rihanna, are pear-shaped. As you can see, it isn’t a matter of being short, tall or fat, but the actual shape of your silhouette.
