Maxi-length dresses are fall’s go-to dress length. It’s a great transitional style that works well for end of summer into the fall season.
How to select a maxi dress for your body type? Some women think that they cannot pull off such a look. After all, floor-length dresses look best on long and lean body types. Not ttrue. See tips below on how to look your best in a maxi dress, no matter your body type.
Curvy women: Try a fit and flare maxi dress with a cinched waist. Avoid skinny straps or any details that brings attention to problem areas.
Short Women: Most petite women avoid the maxi dress but they shouldn’t. A high-waist version gives you the illusion of being long and lean. Wearing heels should also help. Lucky for you we offer petites in our National UltraSofts® Maxi dress.
Pear Shaped: Try a maxi dress with neck embellishments to draw the eyes away from the hip area. Dresses with a light-colored top and darker bottom also help slim down hips.
Boyish Frames: Women with athletic frames should try to show off their shoulders more by trying a strapless or spaghetti strap. Try to find an option with a more narrow skirt to help bring out the best in your lean body.
Busty Women: Finding a dress that fits right and does not make you look too busty can sometimes be difficult. Loose-draping fits can work well with a top-heavy frame. Also a V-neckline can help balance a heavy top. Stick with dresses with sleeves or wider straps.
