    I like the idea of a maxi dress, especially in cooler weather. Unfortunately, I’ve yet to find one that is flattering on me. Being big-boobed, most of them end up being rather tent-like on me. 😦

      I’m big boobed too:) If the waist isn’t cinched I belt them and it is flattering for me. I do have to try A Lot on before I finally buy one though

    I love the tie-back multicolour dress from Nordstrom.
    I just wish they had cheaper international shipping *sigh*

    I had no idea they made maxi dresses in petite sizes. I’ve been craving one, but at 5’2″ I thought I was out of luck. So excited now!! 🙂

      YES! I hear a lot of short girls complain about the length of Maxi dresses so It’s great that there are options for all.

      I’m 5’0″ so I obviously run into this issue too. Sometimes, if I don’t feel like hemming the bottom of a dress (a lot of these dresses are so simple without any detail on the bottom so you’re not losing anything by cutting off extra fabric,) I’ll just tie the bottom in a knot.
