Maxi Dress

Posted: July 10, 2009 in FASHION - WOMEN, Types of dresses


A figure -friendly dress that extends down to your ankles. The shape can make a tall woman appear taller and a short woman shorter. Hence opt a style that is well cut and in proportion to your frame.

  • If you are petite opt for a style that is fitted at the top. Stay away from excessively capacious skirts. Wear your dress with platform shoes, trendy sling backs or wedges to further lengthen the silhouette.
  • If you are big bellied, opt for styles that has a drape in the front. This will disguise the flaws and make you appear like a diva. It also covers fat thighs and wide hips.
  • If you are big busted, go for styles like halter neck or bandeau top instead of thin straps. V-neck styles draws attention away from the bust and is quite flattering on a full figure.
  • An empire line cut is the most flattering style on most type of figures. Accessorize it with chunky jewelry or this season’s bags, clutches etc.
