Tips for Buying Plus Size Maxi Dresses

Maxi dresses are by far the most democratic of dresses because they suit every body shape. Whether you are an apple shape (top heavy), pear shape (bottom heavy), hourglass (large on top and at the hips and thighs), or boy shape (straight down), you will be able to find a maxi dress that suits your shape.

However, although this style of dress does suit everyone, you must pay special attention to match the dress of your choice to your body shape if you want to make sure you have heads turning wherever you go.

Understand which dresses suit your shape, and you will look beautiful, get the style wrong for your shape and you are likely to look frumpy or bulge in all the wrong places.

Follow our advice and guidance, and you will be able to find the perfect maxi dress for you - just in time for summer.

Pear Shape
A pear shape is bottom heavy. People with this shape have a slim neck, narrow shoulders and waist, and a larger bottom and thighs.

The most important consideration when choosing maxi dresses is to choose a style that balances the upper and lower portions. You can do this in one of two ways.

Choose a design with lots of volume on top; by increasing your upper proportions, the top and bottom appear evenly matched, thus creating the hourglass figure.
Choose a design with a plunging neckline. By drawing attention to the neckline, you draw attention away from the hips, and people will not notice any differences.

Apple Shape
An apple shape is top-heavy. People with this shape have a slim bottom and thighs, but a larger bust and wider shoulders.

The most important consideration when choosing a maxi dress is to select a style that balances the lower and upper portions.

Oddly, although you have the opposite body shape, you should follow the second piece of advice indicated for the pear shape. Choose a plunging neckline to draw attention to the area, and away from the hips and thighs.

Opt for a dress that is loose fitting around the thighs and hips, as this will appear to add volume, and thus balance the look.

Boy Shape
If you have a boy shape, the aim of any dress should be to add curves in all the right places. Do this by opting for dresses with volume around the bust and around the bottom. Frills, lace, and other embellishments in these key areas will help greatly. Emphasise the curves of the bust and bottom by selecting a cut that nips in at the waist, or use a belt to create effect.

The Hourglass Figure
The best shape to have and the shape the others need to try to achieve. If you have an hourglass figure, you are fortunate because most styles of dress will suit you. However, there are still a few rules to heed.

Firstly, unless you are very slim, avoid dresses with too much volume, as you run the risk of looking a lot larger than you naturally are.

Choose cuts that accentuate your assets, so a plunging neckline, a tucked in waist, and a semi-clingy skirt will look fantastic.
