Plus Size Maxi Dresses for Summer – An Essential Tip

Maxi dresses have been in fashion for quite a while now. I remember even last summer seeing many ladies wearing gorgeous maxi dresses, they were quite the must have item. Well it seems like this trend is still going strong, and these type of dresses remain a must have item for Spring and Summer this year.

I must say I am one to have mixed feelings about this trend. I love how maxi dresses look in general, they are so feminine, have a gorgeous flow to them, most come is fun prints and they look super comfortable on the whole as well! However I think they do not suit all body types, including mine. Maybe the maxi dresses I tried one where the wrong ones? Not sure, but I remember when I tried one one I felt like I was wearing a tent. Mine you this particular one have a very wide pleated skirt. So that wasn’t a great first try.

Even though I am apprehensive about them, I love the way they look and I am adamant that one will have to suit me and flatter my figure. I think the key element plus size women need to remember when looking for maxi dresses, is that the actual skirt needs to be moderately wide… it should not make you look like a walking tepee, but it have to hug your figure, but still be slightly flowing.

I came across these three plus size maxi dresses from Yours Clothing which seem to fit the bill, and I am very tempted to order the animal print one, show below. Have a look at these options… which one is your favorite? It is also the animal print one? And what is, in your opinion as a plus size lady, your feeling towards maxi dresses?

How to Buy the Perfect Little Black Dress

Jessica London Plus Size Little Black A-Line DressThe little black dress (LBD) is one outfit that can flatter and enhance a woman’s shape regardless of her age or body size. Yet many women overlook this wardrobe staple because they think that it can be a little drab. But if you get the basics right – the cut and fabric, for example – then you can create a look  that’s anything but boring and one that shows others how the little black dress should be worn.

When shopping for the perfect LBD, look for something in a slightly heavy fabric as this will help to give a smooth and sleek look. A heavy fabric will also hang better and camouflage any bumps you don’t want to draw attention to. Fabric is especially important if you’re on the large size. Try a double-layered jersey dress as you’ll find that the first layer clings to your bumps while the second layer falls smoothly over your body giving a sleek look.

When wearing a black dress, choose accessories that sparkle and shine. Big bold jewelry will complement a black dress and draw attention to your neck, décolletage, and face, and away from certain other areas of your body.

If your LBD is strapless or has spaghetti straps don’t wear a shawl to hide the top half of your body, as this will give the impression of insecurity. Instead, wear a cardigan that complements your outfit.

Always remember to take your body shape into account when choosing your LBD.

Avenue Plus Size Tie Sleeve DressTall
Fit is all important. Make sure that the dress fits in all the right places: The waist falls at your natural waist and the dress doesn’t look too short (the hem should sit just above or at your knee).

Pear Shape
Choose a dress with interesting detail on the top half to draw attention away from your bottom half. Choose a dress in heavy fabric that will help create a smooth silhouette.

Apple Shape
A dress with ruching (gathered layers of fabric) in the middle section will help to give the appearance of a slimmer midsection. Detail on the top half of the dress will draw attention to this area and away from the middle of your body.

Choose a dress with delicate and interesting detail which won’t swamp your petite frame.

Large Chest
A flowing, fuller skirt will help to create a sleek look. A v-neck is flattering but make sure that it’s not too deep.

Small Chest
You can wear spaghetti straps and low necklines (e.g. deep v-necks). To enhance your bust, choose a dress with extra fabric around the bust line or one that has a built-in bra which will enhance your natural shape.

It’s worth investing a little time and effort in finding the perfect LBD, because if you get this look right, it’s one that you will return to again and again.
