Capitalize On Body Type with Your Best Shape Maxi Dress
Here’s where I’ll tell you how to wear your maxi dress body type for the daytime or evening hours. Have you ever noticed how a long, hot dress seems to have a life of its own on a certain body shape? They can even help you feel like you suddenly learned how to “dress your age”, whatever that may be. Here’s how to wear a shape dress for each of these 7 body types:
1) You have a “less lengthy”, petite figure, whilst navigating possible curves
Often a petite body type complains that what is “supposed” to be a hot maxi dress, is tricky to wear. These women are probably trying a style of maxi with too much oomph(volume) and it is simply too long for them. It doesn’t have to be this way.
Pick crafty, mid-calf length, slightly shorter styles.
Choose a fluid fabric that doesn’t billow and avoid many pleats or layers.
Opt for a smaller print, minimal color, and keep patterns small-scale.
A trendy hot dress with a sheath contained underneath, and sheer leg will create height, and look sharp.
Example 1 – Loud
Example 2 – Eegant
Example 3 – Casual
2) You’re an iconic goal post, with an Athletic, “H” shaped frame
You’ve got less- -waist and are likely more physically fit(at least in appearance) than most.
Look for a fitted, column tier-shaped dress. The straightness will accent every curve on your body and flatter overall.
Avoid the gathers and pleats.
Try a contrasting colored belt around the waist for curve-illusion.
An empire style will likely be one of the most flattering.
Example – Asymmetrical
3) You’ve reached the “X” Factor(with a most defined waist)
Try a wide belted style that you can cinch in to show off a puckered, defined central waist.
A flared shape will also accentuate and compliment your curves.
Look for fabrics that drape softly and move as you walk.
Example – Irregular Hem
4) “Towering above”. How to Wear That Hot Maxi Dress if you’re Taller
It is hard to find clothes fitting long enough for you, most of the time, but…
Maxi dresses for you should come at least to your ankles, if not a little longer.
Play with horizontal details to minimize height, with the truest of long dresses for women.
Work with your body shape recommendation methods mentioned above whether you are curvier or are on the visually straight and narrow.
Example – Long Sleeveless
5) Maxi Tips for “All the Way” Voluptuous, Curvy Body Types
Go for the extra bit of embellished fabric for wide straps and a deep “V “neckline. This will give support, highlight your curves, and balance out your hips.
Gentle pleating and belted styles will work to show off your shape.
Soft, draping fabrics such as lace maxi dresses, will make your figure Sing.
