Feeling Fresh in a Maxi Dress

I used to shun maxi dresses because I thought they make me look smaller until I got to try one on and found that it was actually very flattering. With the right bodice, a maxi dress can make even petite women look tall in stature. Moreover, long flowing skirts of maxi dresses exude a feminine flair. Suffice it to say that I now have more than a handful of maxi dresses in my wardrobe.

One of the most recent additions to my maxi dress collection is the Maxi Dress in Talavera by Fresh Produce. Its smocked center back bodice with slight gathers at the bust provides a great silhouette that enhances my slim torso. The fabric is also made of rayon making it perfect for the hot and humid summer weather. Another thing I like about this rayon maxi dress is that you get that soft silky feel with the cool comfort of cotton. What I love the most is that it comes in so many different colors. You can have it in Aquamarine, Stardust, White, and South Beach Blue – light tones perfect for the day. Or get darker tones in Eggplant, Spring Green, Truffle or Twilight for a night out with your girl friends. I’m not talking about just plain colors, mind you. This maxi dress has an intricately designed print that adds drama to it.

I definitely love my Maxi Dress in Talavera. It flatters my figure well and is very comfortable to wear. If you haven’t tried a maxi dress yet, believe me when I say that whatever your body shape is, you can look effortlessly chic in a maxi dress.

    Yes! I love maxi dresses! They are so comfortable! They also help give people more curves… or at least look like it =).. I love the pattern of the dress!

    I have always worn and loved maxi dresses. I am only 5″1 and have always been petite. I think they make you look taller and slimmer. I hope.


    As girly girly as I am and as much as I love the look of dresses, I hate my legs and also I am in the middle of losing weight so on one hand to cover my legs but to get to still get the girly girly dress look I love a maxi seems like it’d be perfect and I’ve seen some I have really been tempted to try, but so far I have been afraid to for fear it will make me look fatter so still unsure. I am tall though so I would definitely wear them if or when I reach my goal weight : )

    That’s a beautiful dress! great color! Thank you for this post! I too love how maxi dresses look but I to have been shunning them for life due to me being small 5″1 I just thought I would look even smaller! Great to hear from someone else that I can pull it off with my height issues and I appreciate you saying that different body types can pull it off because I am short and also curvy so I honestly was wondering if i’d look just wrong lol so thank you for this piece!
