While scrolling on Pinterest this week and I came across a graphic. The graphic was explaining pieces that petite women should and should not wear. One of them was maxi dresses and skirts! I could not believe it because I wear maxi dresses all the time! As such, I can tell you that this 5’2 girl is able to wear them without looking like I am swimming in them.
Brands that support petites
That being said, I want to show you all that yes, petite women can wear maxi dresses. There are tons of brands that offer petite dress size options like Banana Republic, Loft and Ann Taylor. My favorite brand for maxi dresses by far are by Eliza J. These dresses are available at retailers like Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s, Dillard’s and Lord & Taylor.
Quality vs. Quantity
I will be the first to admit that these dresses can be a little pricey. They range from $100-$200. From my personal experience, these pieces worth the price because of their quality. The fabrics are so luxurious and fit well on my petite frame. My first maxi dress from Eliza J I reviewed here. You certainly get what you pay for when you get an Eliza J maxi dress: quality, longevity & elegance. The best part about this brand is that it also offer plus sizes too! Styles for all types of beauty. So go ahead my fellow petite ladies. Get yourself a maxi dress. You are going to look amazing!
