We all come in different shapes and sizes! And, of course, trying to fit yourself into a certain category doesn’t always work. Pear-shaped bodies are those that are bigger on the lower part of the body than they are on the upper body. For example, you may have a relatively small bust size but larger hips and thighs.

Of course, loving your shape (and you absolutely should!) is one thing, but dressing it well can be an entirely new challenge. You need to make sure that you invest in quality lingerie that makes you feel uber confident.

Luckily, there are some briefs that will not only suit but highly flatter your pear-shaped body.  

What should you look for in briefs?

Before we look at some of the styles of briefs that you may want to try, let’s take a moment to consider what you should be looking for. There are certain characteristics that tend to work well for pear-shaped women. Before you start shopping, it’s important that you get to grips with what you need. With that in mind, here are some of the things to look out for.

Flattering designs

First of all, you need to make sure that the design you choose is super flattering and suits your shape. A couple of examples of briefs that may work include highwaist options or hipster briefs. Since everybody is unique and individual, it may pay to try on a range of styles of designs before you choose the right one for you and your body shape.

Wider leg openings

When you have a naturally pear-shaped body, you may also find that you have fuller legs. With that in mind, it could be worth looking for briefs that have wide leg opens so that you’ve got comfort that you need. Always read the small print when buying lingerie so that you can get your exact measurements.

High level of coverage

Finally, you should be looking for briefs that can offer you a high level of coverage. The more material you have, the more comfortable you should find the briefs. Many designs – including cool retro styles of lingerie – will offer you a decent level of coverage.

What briefs suit pear-shaped bodies?

Now that you’ve got an understanding of the style you should be looking for, let’s talk specifics. What are the best briefs for pear-shaped bodies? While you can experiment with a wide array of styles and looks, there are certain designs that will give you the ‘wow’ factor. Here are some of the briefs that you may want to give a whirl.


As the name suggests boyshorts are a lot like shorts – they give you a whole load of coverage and comfort. What’s more, this style of lingerie comes in a whole range of sexy and cute styles that you may just fall in love with. Opt for something colorful and fun!

Highwaisted Briefs

On the other hand, if you happen to be wanting a retro-style look, you can’t go wrong with some highwaisted briefs. This style of brief is ideal as it tends to have extra coverage and should be super comfortable. Choosing a satin style look gives you that extra level of glamour and looks absolutely fabulous.


Hipster briefs are also a smart move for those with pear-shaped bodies. This style means that you get as much comfort as possible. Plus, they make excellent everyday briefs, which means that you can wear them with pretty much any outfit you happen to choose.

Choosing lingerie that flatters your figure and works for you doesn’t have to be at all difficult. Now that you understand what style suits a pear-shaped body, you have everything that you need to select the ideal look for you. Take the time to shop around and find something that is truly special and you adore. Happy shopping!
