Pants for Pear-Shaped Women
We know that finding well-fitted pants is your biggest challenge. We understand how unnerving it can be when the waistband of your pant is just too large and the best your tailor can do is take it in at the back, creating an unseemly “v” shape. We recommend high-rise pants for curvier women so the waistband will sit a bit higher on your body, where you are less curvy.

Skirts for Pear-Shaped Women
As with pants, the pear-shaped woman faces two challenges with skirts: a “pulling” of the fabric at the hips or thighs and a waistband that is too large and often sits too low. To enhance the fit of our skirts for curvier bodies, we add extra darts to create better shaping. We recommend A-line and our “lowercase” A-line styles. The classic A-line silhouette drapes effortlessly over your hips while our “lowercase” A-line skirts fall straight from the low hip, visually slimming the hips and thighs.

Dresses for Pear-Shaped Women
Our recommended styles of dresses for pear shaped women feature “lowercase” A-line or full skirts on the bottom.

Personal Tailoring for Petites
About Personal Tailoring
Your Personal Fit
  • By fashion-industry definition, a petite woman is 5’4” or shorter. If this describes you, then a paucity of contemporary petite clothing options might leave you looking too young or too old for your age. And, if you are like most petites, you spend more time with your tailor than you would like.

    We understand the frustration of finding the style you love only to realize the sleeves reach your knuckles or the rise is too long. Personal tailoring might be the best solution for you.

    At Moi-Même, we offer custom petite clothing for stylish women seeking the most flattering petite looks and fit. You will not look like you went through your mother’s wardrobe and you will not feel inappropriate or disheveled because your clothes are just too big for you.

    All of our styles are available in petite heights, so you can design your own garments that reflect your unique personality. Find your heart’s delight in our collection of custom petite suits, jackets, dresses and shirts.
