IDC Herzliya Campus A Day on Campus

To mark IDC Herzliya’s 20th anniversary, we spent a day following Prof. Uriel Reichman, IDC’s founder and president, and Jonathan Davis, VP for External Relations, around its delightful campus.



The Beautiful Pear

If your hip measurement is larger than your bustline, you’re probably a pear shaped woman.

A soft, pencil-shaped skirt with princess lines will also create a nice look. Yes, princess lines do miracles for the pear body type, and if a skirt has two princess lines on the front and the back, with thin piping added to it—bingo! It will “divide” your silhouette in 3 and you can finally wear your pencil skirt without fear. Optical illusions are great tools when used properly!

Since the idea is to go with simple skirts, leave that tulip skirt for an inverted triangle-shaped woman. Skirts with big pockets, shiny zippers, big buttons and peplums should be left on the rack.

The ideal skirt length for you is about knee length!

“But I love maxi skirts!” I know, I know… you probably love them because they hide your legs. But what if you work with your legs instead of against it? Most Pears have beautiful legs that are a bit thicker and shorter than the other body types. And, sadly enough, they try to hide them. By doing this you’re trying to cover a hole of frustration like the people of Chelm cover their holes on the street (see my previous post).

So how to take a friendlier approach with your legs? By using the right shoe! Try a pointy-toed shoe next time you go to a shoe store. It could be a shoe without heels at all, or even if it has just a 1 inch heel, it will still elongate your legs as you’ve never seen before.

Also, have you seen the huge amount of almond-toed flats in the stores right now? Almond-toed shoes (pointy but with a bit of a rounded front) are a great choice. Leave the fully rounded-toed shoe for another person who will have a great time wearing it.

Also, shoes and sandals that have a strap in front of the ankle, more or less like children’s shoes, should be avoided. The strap that passes over the ankle will “cut” the look of your legs, making them look shorter. The same thing happens with booties that end at the ankle. Some can create the same effect as the ankle strap and shorten your beautiful legs. When cooler weather knocks on your door, try to wear mid-calf or long boots. Just keep in mind that such boots should be fitted at the ankle. I know you love your Uggs, but… there are lots of choices out there to explore.

WARNING!

Attention! Red sign! Sirens! You are beautiful the way you are!

Be kind to yourself and know one thing: a pear shaped woman is made of 2 sizes within the same body. She could be a size 8 in the waistline and a size 10 or 12 in the hipline. That’s why it’s challenging sometimes to find a fitted skirt or dress that suits your needs.

Now that you know it, you can stop blaming yourself for something that is the industry’s fault. They could produce better garments if they really wanted to.

Your body type is gorgeous, be grateful for it, and with the guidelines above, I’m sure you’ll find it easier now next time you go shopping.

See you next week!
