If mini dresses are too short for you and midi dresses are too commonplace, flowing maxi dresses are an airy solution on hot summer days. Particularly for large, curvy women who don't like to show their legs, maxi dresses look simply fantastic. These long flowing dresses are currently available in many different varieties. They come in chiffon for evening wear, jersey for holidays and with floral patterns for a hippie style.
Colourful, vivid maxi dresses have a casual, loose and buoyant effect, and they should be accompanied with styling to match. Add a pair of flat strap sandals and a chic bracelet – you won't need anything else for a summery bohemian outfit. You can even confidently go without a purse – fully in line with the flower power vibe.
Floor-length dresses are not just symbolic of a carefree summer attitude, they also lend a certain lightness to full figures. Problem areas around the stomach, legs and bottom become entirely invisible under the abundant material. But large-scale colour prints won't do your figure any favours. Delicate patterns or plain-coloured models are better.
