It can look good if the double breasted jacket has a very defined waistline. Double breasted jackets add volume around the top, which is not a bad thing for us pear shaped women.
What is also great if it has some embellishments, is in a light color and ends above or below the widest points of the hips. Also, shoulder padding is a good idea.
Double breasted jacket for a pear shaped woman – an example
This jacket has embellishments – check, the color is creamy white – check, it has a nice decoration on the front and golden buttons – check, it has shoulder paddings – check.. So overall, the jacket is great for a pear shape. (Still I would not recommend buying this one, it is too 80s power suit style, too much shoulder padding and too little waist definition).
The 365 challenge by a pear shaped woman
- This is the 227th article that I write for the 365 day challenge. That includes no shopping for an entire year. No shoes, clothes nor handbags. I blog about the outfits here, hoping to inspire some other pear shaped women out there. Occasionally, I add a picture or more that I did not publish here on tumblr.

PS: Sorry if the posts have gotten small. The new work is demanding and it is difficult to keep up the posts in the previous length only writing on free weekends. I also do not post regularly the brands and sources of my stuff any more. If you are interested in a particular item, just drop me a line.
PSPS: I have stopped taking the pill and now I have really bad problems with acne. I am over 30, this is not fair! On top of that, I tried out mixing different powders for mineral makeup. Anyone faux tan make up? Well, at least I look truly 80s, which matches with this vintage piece.
