The last thing a pear shaped figure needs is a jacket that hits at the widest part of the hips. This blazer solves that problem with its somewhat cropped length. I also like the slightly longer, angled front. It is the most flattering jacket I have ever bought and the price is incredible. The soft fabric will be great for packing for travel. The 97 cents shipping is a delightful surprise and delivery was extremely fast. It did take me several tries to find the size that fits me best, but with the ease of returning to a local Walmart store an item purchased online, I have been able to try on three different sizes from the comfort of home, with only a minimal extra shipping charge for my trial and error approach. I started with a size 3X, then a 2X, and have settled on the 1X. My uncertainty has nothing to do with the sizing of the blazer or with it running large (I honestly don't know if it does or not), it's just very hard to tell how something will fit without trying it on. I usually buy a 1X or 2X so probably should have started with one of those, but I do like my tops roomy to balance my wider hips and thighs. I bought this in a teal color, but will probably also order a navy or black. When something fits this well and is this flattering, I need to snap it up while I can! If you're a "pear", I think you will love this blazer!
