"There's a maxi dress for every shape." Nope. This is a lie. Some of us (me) look like little girls trying to wear their mother's clothes in maxi dresses. *sigh* I can't wait until boho style goes back out of fashion.
Shawn and I decided that yes, gals of lesser stature can wear them, but they have to be the exact right length. Which means if I were to purchase one (no plans) I would have to have it hemmed. That is annoying and so I will say no thanks!
The one I had needed to be hemmed. And that's why it got donated. I think it's an okay style for me though, because I have good front-of-chest and also it hides the fact I'm long waisted with very short legs. Plus flowey to hide my various and sundry curves.
