I'm pear shaped and want this dress - link
I'm not huge, only a size 10 but I don't know if it will make me look more unbalanced because I have small boobs (32A) or if it will look okay. However, I've been told I have quite a nice bum and legs which is unusual for a pear shape (I thought) because every one goes on about how you should cover your bottom half if your a pear.
link - ignore my disgusting face and I know I have my arms folded, but can you imagine this dress on me. What do you think? Thanks :)

I can't see anyone with a disgusting face in the picture but I'll assume you're the one in the orange with the tasty looking thighs and hips.
Well, I've spent a lot of time looking at pear shaped women (my favorite!) so I'll try to help ...
I think that dress would look okay but not _great_ on you. That dress would look best on a stick. It suggests a rectangle pinched at the middle, but it won't look like that on you.
I'd guess something wider in the shoulder would be more 'perfect' on you. A small cap shoulder, an 'off the shoulder' type strap, or a short sleeve will make your hips look good, not exaggerated. You don't need to HIDE your bum, you just don't need to try to make it look even bigger compared to your upper body.
Ideal silhouette would be:
though that one is a little expensive!
I looked briefly on the site your dress was on, I wondered about things like:
I'm sure you'll look great, but I hope you also feel great with whatever you get.5
