The maxi dress for every woman
The stylish and timeless ankle-grazing maxi dress has long been a firm favourite for women of all ages and body shapes, due to its versatility and comfort all in one. Paired with a short leather jacket for an eye-catching daytime look or dressed up and glitzy for a formal occasion, the key to finding the most complementary maxi for your shape is to choose the correct fit.
For a smaller bust
Embrace your size and create a silhouette with a deep v-shaped neckline and open back. A black maxi dress with spaghetti straps across the back would be ideal. Alternatively, if you want to enhance what you have, look for a maxi featuring a moulded cup and ruched fabric.
For the larger bust
Choose either a wrap-styled or fitted maxi to define the waistline. Avoid strapless, low necked maxis to avoid exposing too much cleavage. A higher neckline with a slight v or boat-neck will be complement your figure.
For a curvy shape
The empire waist is ideal as this skims rather then clings to your body. Strapless options or thicker straps suit this shape. Bold prints are more flattering than tiny delicate designs.
The petite frame
If you are petite and slender, then a figure-hugging fit will serve to elongate your silhouette. Spaghetti straps or a neckline which shows off the skin will create a similar illusion.
If petite and curvy, then a skinny belt will enhance and complement your figure. A maxi dress with an A-line or empire waist will create the most flattering look for this shape.
