Hey everyone, so a summer fashion staple is the classic maxi dress. This is an essential piece of any wardrobe as it is smart/casual meaning it can be worn in the day or night. Many high street stores and supermarkets sell these wonderful items but unless you have a slim, hourglass figure finding a flattering cut it not easy.
Being a bigger lady I don't like clothes that cling to the body, I like them to skim, giving the illusion of a slimmer silhouette. Many stores have gathers or drapes in the wrong places or are made of materials that cling to any lump or bump.
The dress above from evans is perfect, it is layered which means you can have a supportive fabric underneath a floaty summer fabric. There are capped fluted sleeves to hide bingo wings and add width at the top. It also has a gather at the waist to give shape and femininity.
Do you have any Maxi dresses? What styles?
Take care x
