A few weeks ago I got into a conversation with some Plus Size Princesses on Twitter. I mentioned that because I’m 5’10, its hard for me to find maxi dresses that are long enough. Of course there were shorter PSP’s who complained that most maxi’s are too long for them but hemming a dress is an option for them, Tall girls can’t add fabric.
So I thought I’d share some of my tall girl tricks for maxi dresses.
This summer I bought a few plain strapless maxi’s from Target. I’ve been sliding them down under my boobs to make maxi skirts. Sometimes I tuck a tank-top in that’s the exact same color as the skirt, add a belt and voila, it looks like a maxi dress. Other times I do color blocking. My favorite way to do this style is to use my halter swimsuit. This ensures that there will be no bunching under the skirt and its an easy beach look.
