What is a Pear to Wear?

What is a Pear to WearWhat is a pear to wear? This has been a question I have had most of my adult life, and I’m sure it’s one you’ve had as well.

As a girl coming from a fashion background, I sadly know firsthand how the fashion industry does not cater to all body types. Yes, fashion goes along with the trending body type of the time but it continuously reverts back to the stereotypical “ideal” body type; which for many women, sadly does not include.

I’m sure my story is similar to many of those out there; but I’ll tell is anyways.

Since a young age I, like many girls, loved watching Disney Princess movies, playing with Barbies and idealising female movie stars. By the time puberty came around I was so excited to get the Disney Princess/Barbie body type that is never occurred to me that not everyone looked that way. Well, sure enough I did not get a Barbie body type and very quickly I became self-conscious and self-loathing of my body.

Even comparing myself to my friends I knew my body type was a bit different than others. Group shopping trips became painful and embarrassing with the knowledge I won’t be able to fit into all the cloths the same way my friends did. It got to the point I hated shopping and even at age 24 had to be forced by my sister to go jean shopping (an event which ended in tears, of course).

Why was shopping such a horrible experience for me? I was interested in fashion right? Loved designing right? Why wouldn’t I love shopping?

The answer is simple. From a young age I realised cloths didn’t fit my body.

Although I am a petite pear, my body proportions are still different to the fashion industry standard. I have short and heavyset legs, wide and curvaceous hips, small waist as well as a petite chest and ribcage. What does this mean for fitting cloths you ask; well my top half of my body is typically a size 4 to 6 (throughout properly filling the bust area) while by bottom half is more around an 8 to 12 (depending on the brand). This means buying pants is nearly impossible as I have to buy a bigger size to fit around my hips which results in massive gaping around my waist. I also have large issues in finding dresses that fit my body due to the size difference.

I am now 29 years old and it took a shopping trip to buy new work pants to knock some sense in me.

After picking out 20 different pairs of black pants I was able to find one pair that looked…okay. Frustrated and upset with my body I had a mini breakdown in the fitting room in front of my supportive partner.

As always he reminded me how much he loved my curves and how often he catches strangers loving the look of my body as well. Still frustrated I didn’t listen to him and continued to vent complaining how the fashion industry doesn’t agree and that’s why they don’t make cloths that fit me.

It was at this point that my entrepreneur minded partner looked me straight in the eye and said; “Then do something about it!”

So here I am, doing something about it and no long blaming my body any longer.

Ladies, we are all beautiful and deserve positive shopping experiences. Join me in taking a stand and love your curves.
