So you say you are pear shape. I wish I was, and I'll tell you why. As an hourglass, if you are big, you are big all over. When I get dressed, the top is big, the bottom is big, and if you don't point to the waist you have that is lurking, you just look big. When you are a pear you are narrower on top, wider on the bottom and it's a very feminine shape.
