Skirts for pears

"Conceal with a subtle print," says fashion expert and TV personality Jeannie Mai. "A small-scale texture like dark tweed or any other shaded fabric can hide any little bulge."

"A slightly flared pencil skirt shows off legs while still camouflaging thighs. The top-of-knee length elongates your lower half," adds Mai.
