Red Carpet Glamour For Pear Shapes | Pip Milburn

Have you seen my latest video? It’s an ASOS occasion wear haul for a red carpet event I’m attending in September. I ordered a variety of different dresses in different styles and colours, but nothing really bowled me over and made me feel that red carpet glamour.

 

 

They did however give me a better idea of what style of dress to go for. I am a size 14 pear shape so ideally I would like a dress that draws attention to my waist and top half.

Here are my top picks.

This dress is stunning, navy is one of my favourite colours but at £110 it’s a little bit out of my budget.

The colour of this dress is beautiful, definitely more of an autumnal colour. The waist band detail is perfect for my pear shape and the lace detail on the top half of the dress will draw the eye upwards. This dress is by Coast from ASOS and is priced at £149, again a little bit out of my price range.

At £28 this dress is definitely more affordable. It’s simple and elegant, I’ll definitely be adding this one into my basket. Fingers crossed the material isn’t too cheap looking.
