What can I wear to a Christening? I’m 32yrs old, size 14, 5ft 3in, pear shape figure. I’m very self concious about how I look.

What can I wear to a Christening?A Christening is such a beautiful event. You can wear a dress, separates like pants or skirt and a pretty top or a suit to a Christening. With your fuller thighs the goal is to add some interest to your top to balance with your hip area. When choosing tops and dresses wear V necks, boatnecks, wide scoop necks. Wrap dresses and tops are very flattering on pear shape body types. Other dress styles that will work for you are empire style (high waist), halter and sheath styles that fit perfectly. A line or sheath skirts and straight leg pants are also flattering on pear shape bodies with the right style top. Since you are only 5′ 3″ tall wear monochromatic colors to look taller. Heels will also give you a lift.

Dressing For Your Body Type
Knowing your body type/ shape is important. In order to look good you need to choose clothing styles that flatter you. Few if any of us have the “perfect figure.”

Wearing Prints and Patterns
When choosing things to wear, we want to accentuate the positive. The first thing to think about when selecting prints or patterned clothing is the proportion or scale. Large prints will call attention to you and your size. Small women don’t look good in clothing with large prints or patterns. Large women are already noticeable and will just call attention to their size when wearing large prints or patterns. Scale the prints to your size and you’re “good to go.”
