So I have been a pear my entire life. Enter menopause, and my flat stomach is gone. All of the guidelines that I have always gone by are no longer relevant, and I am so confused, especially with not being able to try things on in the store.

I still have a pear shape, but my cute waist is now puffy and I feel like I have morphed into an apple on top and a pear on the bottom. I am the entire fruit basket, so to speak :p

I am a size 16 women, 5'6 inches tall, 38/38/48

Thank you for any feedback!
