I'm a little confused here; pears predominantly have shorter legs & a longer torso, making sense to go for a cropped/ shorter-than-hip-length jacket (to elongate the legs).
However, I tried Angie's waist-measurement method, & found out I'm actually quite short-waisted (can barely fit a hand & 2 fingers between my bustline & the smallest part of my waist). I'm still definitely a pear though, with slight secondary hourglass characteristics (my shoulders are a little broad, but not the same width as my hips).
So, any tips on how should I fit blazers & jackets on my confusing frame? Thanks!
