The hips don't lie and in this instance, they are your fashion truth serum! The hipbone is the line when all tops and jackets should end on a plus-size, pear shaped figure, because this visually divides your body into two halves, minimizing the lower half.
Stay away from any jackets that are too long and do not give you that visual break, they will only make your bottom half look bigger.
Likewise, avoid cropped tops because they have the same effect. Balance is the key to plus-size, pear shape fashion and a hip-length top or jacket will make it happen!
