Hi.

I'm Kristin! A short & curvy girl seeking clothes that fit. Originally from the South, I'm now taking on NYC! My blog is dedicated to providing style and fit guides for petite-pear shaped women.

THE PETITE PEAR'S GUIDE TO SHORTS: FLOWY SHORTS

 

Style Cliff Notes

Tank top – American Apparel

Shorts – H&M (link to similar)

Purse – Zara

Shoes – Zara

Hat – H&M

 

H&M Printed Shorts – Size 8

What I loved…

  • Elastic waistband – When it comes to shorts, I always look for styles that are comfortable. I love the elastic waistband on these shorts because it’s not a struggle to pull them on and off with my curvy hips.
  • High rise – I’m a big fan of high waisted shorts because they highlight my waist, which is the narrowest part of my body; and this feature also flatters my pear-shaped figure.
  • Side slits -  There is plenty of breathing room for my thighs in these shorts because they have these sort of side flaps that create space.

 

Garment measurements:

Waist = 27''

Front rise = 13''

Inseam = 2.25''

 

American Apparel Scoop Tank – Size L

What I loved…

  • Great basic piece – I’ve had this tank top for over a year and I love it because it’s so easy to wear on its own or as a layering piece.

What could be better...

  • Size up -  This tank top runs a little small so I had to buy a large. (Just a note if you're looking into buying this tank.)

 

Garment measurements:

Center front = 16.75''

Bust = 31''
