  43. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

  44. Love your videos. ย I am not curvy by all means but I love your ideas in pairing your outfits with the different jackets, scarves and jewelry. ย Thanks for the great tips.

  45. I have a burgundy and tan halter maxidress that I am pairing with a pair of nude heels by Steve Madden the platform part of the heel is a shimmery gold/silver combo. Here is my dilemma I would like to fall it up with a jacket, cardigan, or scarf. I need suggestions on what color

  46. You’re a size 8 now, what size were you before the weight loss? I love Maxi dresses but I feel like they aren’t flattering at my size, 16

  47. I love your outfit in this video! Super gorgeous and flattering

  48. A beautiful curvy girl, makeup guru, not in her tweens! Annnd founder of the incredible Makeup Geek brand! How have I not known about your YouTube!? So excited to be a new subscriber!

  49. Where is the green dress that you’re wearing in the video from? Love it!!:)

  50. I know this is a little personal, but you do have a nice lower curve, I’m slightly curvier at the bottom too except with a flat butt lol

  51. Thanks for your brilliant ideas. Im curvy and I never know what to wear or how to wear it. You’ve got GREAT ideas.ย 

  52. Thanks! Thats a good idea what to match on my maxi dress

  53. There’s no way u r a size 8.

  54. i have watched some of your videos and the last one i saw was you telling us about how your legs were bigger than the rest of your body, which is perfectly understandable..because i’m the same way… . but i was curious do your legs rub together with dresses… because i have that problem and i can’t stand wearing dresses, but i have a few gorgeous ones that i want to wear… any suggestionsย 

    1. I know that this is really late in replying. While I was pregnant I couldn’t wear anything during the summer except dresses (go humid Texas!), I would take some just cheapo deodorant and put it between my legs where they would rub it where my legs would normally touch. That gave me a bit of a buffer so that I would chaffe so bad.

  55. You do not look like a pear shape at all but an hourglass.

  56. Love all those dresses!!!, it helped me see how to wear sleeveless dresses with jacket’s and different tops!!. I don’t like showing my 57 yr old upper arm’s, so great way’s to cover them!!,thanks Marlena!! Love your vid’s and your makeup!!!.
    Texas Lady ๐Ÿ™‚

  64. You are such a classy and sweet girl!! Thank you! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  65. how about shoes? what kind ofย shoesย can wear with maxidresses?

    1. Hi,
      I know this is really late but I noticed that nobody ever replied back to you. If you are still wondering which shoes to wear, I would recommend something with a heel to it because maxi dresses are so long.

  66. I have been eyeing a few maxi dresses lately but, I just had no idea how I would wear them. This helped me sooo much. Thank you for some awesome tips. (:

  123. Yay! More look books please, it’s nice to have found someone with a similar body shape as I am.

  124. That’s all I’ve been wearing since I got back from Vegas (a month ago) there like pajamas so comfy. I got one Maxi dress (the dress barn) and two maxi skirts (The Dress Barn & Torrid) the one it white and blue striped, it’s a totally inspiration to do nautical pin up makeup..

    I want more and more maxis lol

  125. When You should the first dress and with the jacket i thought it wouldnt look good together but when you tried it on i was like oh my gosh girl you got style! lol

  130. super cute Marlena! im also more than obsessed with maxis, i like to pair them with denim as well and the patterned ones are also my fave, check out my channel to see my 5 fave maxi styles ๐Ÿ™‚

  131. Thank u!!!!! I was bored w/my dresses & this inspired me a ton!!! Xx

  132. Gorgeous!!! Luv the dresses u picked!!! Thanx for the video

  133. Marlena, I loved the outfits and you have an amazing figure, like, omg! amazing! I wanted to ask, what highlighter are you wearing? I love it!

  134. in that white dress you look like a straight PIN UP MODEL!! please don’t ever lose those hips they are GORGEOUS!!!

  135. Idk why ppl are mean ur AMAZING SUCH A SWEETHEART

  136. You look FAB, thank you for showing some outfits, you look great in them all, and I am inspired to stop hiding my curves and try some dresses again~ thanks, : )

  137. I think she looked lovely. And frankly she can wear whatever she likes as long as she feels comfortable and confident. That goes for all the ladies who watch her videos.

    Also: advice*

  138. This is for Dwightinho56 I thought she looked great in every dress that she wore.an I also think that you are being very rude! It’s about how you feel wearing it an if you feel confident an you feel logos what does it matter what pattern or colors!

  139. Thank you for sharing!

  140. With Your figure you should NEVER wear pattern like the ones you suggest here wether they are Lined or you wear something over it. White is a total No-No having Your figure. Please do not endorse such terrible combinations. If one wanted to wear Maxi dresses in that size pr shape, go for mono Colors,e.g. Splendid or James Perse. Terrible advise here that is Very unflattering.

  141. This was really bad advise

  142. I’m about the same height and I still rock maxi dresses(: It kind of depends on the shoes you wear with them. If you wear some kind of heels with them I think they make us vertically challenged girls look taller and if you wear them with flats, they don’t really make us look shorter just around the same height I think.

  143. I loooooooove your shoes!!!!!! Especially the ones you wore with the first outfit <3

  144. Love this video , i whant to ask do you do hair , because i live close to you , i need a really good hair cut , let me know thank you .

  145. How tall are you? I always want to wear maxi dresses but I can’t tell if it would make me look shorter or taller (I’m only 5 feet).

  146. are Maxi dresses flattering for women that are bigger ontop than they are on the bottom?lol

  147. Thankyou!

  148. You have a beautiful hourglass shape, all the dresses look great on you!

  149. I loveee to to much this video!!Itยดs great!!

  150. She already did, brows her videos a little ๐Ÿ˜‰

  151. You have done so great with your weight loss! You were always gorgeous but you look so stunning and happy now ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

  152. Gah! You make me want to go shopping!! But clothes definitely do not look good on me as they do on you!

  153. bebe?

  154. this was actually a helpful video, now i want a bebe maxi dress haha ๐Ÿ™‚

  155. You have one SEXY CURVY SHAPE!! You are officially my top girl crush! I love that shape #nohomo lol

  156. PERFECT BODY

  157. you look beautiful <3 u r my inspiration. :')

  158. what your wearing at the moment??? please

  159. I think she looks amazing.. I love the dresses and the shoes.. You go girl.. ๐Ÿ™‚

  160. ะšั€ะฐัะพั‚ะบะฐ!

  161. Did she says size 8? Wow! In the US it must be super different than here in Australia! Size 8 is super tiny!

  162. Hi, my girlfriend like what your wearing at the moment. She asks if its a black skirt or high waisted pants

  163. I have to strongly disagree with you. Im a size 26, I’ve had a conversation with Marlena myself and I told her about my struggle with weight and how it was a constant battle to try and lose it. She told me that as long as Im doing it for me and for my well being then way to go. Everyone is beautiful NO MATTER what size their jeans say. To believe it you have to feel it on the inside. If not then its time to search for it. Im sorry that YOU feel this way.

  164. Great Advise!

  165. I’m curvy and short (5″3′), and I always thought maxis were out for me, but seeing you in maxis totally inspired me. So I bought a few, got them hemmed, and I’m loving them this summer! I like the way you’ve put these outfits together.

  166. LAME

  167. You have a great style within your wardrobe.

  168. You are SO gorgeous!!!! you even look like Kim k a bit here xxx

  169. LOVE your bodyshape. So femine and beautiful <3

  170. You are very beautiful Marlena!

  171. You are just the cutest! Love your ideas. Thanks for sharing.

  172. wow <3

  173. Great video, you have beautiful maxi dresses and you have an amazing body you look amazing ๐Ÿ™‚ xoxo

  174. WOW! I haven’t been on your chanel for a long time and you look AMAZING!!!

  175. im addicted to wearing maxis with jean jackets, now im gonna have to switch it up more ๐Ÿ™‚ ty for the video.

  176. I’m a size 18 (16 in the US I think) and I love maxi dresses now, just get a loose fitting one and it’ll hug ur boobs, skim over ur hips and cover everything else, they’re perfect for if u have a big tummy and thighs. Also I’m a hair under 5 feet so I just get the hem taken up. My advice is to get one that has a pattern around the bottom or a sexy neckline to draw the eyes away from the middle.

  177. Makeup tutorial PLEASEEE

  178. I
    LOVE
    U MARLENA!!!

  179. Go fuck ur self u hater!

  180. really enjoyed this video

  181. Marlena, you should try a stand up steamer to get out wrinkles and not have to send to the cleaners so often. I bought one for my first big girl real job and it was a great investment! ๐Ÿ™‚

  182. And thank u for all your recommendations! Love your work! !

  183. BEBE has the coral maxi dress on sale for $89 (less than on amazon’s link) ๐Ÿ™‚

  184. Bitch. shes so much prettier inside and out than you could ever even hope to be.

  185. You are so adorable!

  186. Love all the dresses! You look awesome! Love your shape!

  187. love the outfit you’re wearing in this video!

  188. I have a white maxi dress that I got last year at Goodwill for about $5 and have not worn it. I scored a denim vest for under $30 at Deb Shops. Thanks for the tip. Marlena, you are truly an inspiration. My husband and I are taking our health back. You were part of that. I am not trying to lose 125 lbs but I am going to start make healthier choices. May God bless you abundantly.

  189. You look good in every dress but first is sooooooo great!!!! You have amazing figure ๐Ÿ™‚

  190. You lost sooo much weight! You look amazing!! Beautiful Pear shape <3

  191. u lost alot and i mean aloooooot of weight u look amazing.

  192. I’m short and fat. I get them tailored and it never costs me over $10-20. It’s worth it. A tailor is your best friend!

  193. “wear”

  194. Uh, I’m a size 20 and I wear maxi dresses. Also, you should not rely on others to make you feel good about yourself. Don’t let society dictate to you what is the “right” size. Make your own path. Someone like Makeup Geek is the type of person you need to be watching because she faces the struggle every day. Just because you lose the weight does not mean it’s over. Read Psalm 139:14 and know that you are “…fearfully and wonderfully made by a creator.” BTW, where whatever you want to…

  195. I’m so so glad I found you. I’m a curvy girl too, so thank you. Your super classy & gorgeous!!!

  196. omg you are so gorgeous. you keep getting more and more gorgeous.

  197. Don’t worry about the wrinkles, you can’t see them on Camera!!
    Thanks for the video, us curvy girls really appreciate it!!

  198. SAYS THE ONE SAYING “SIMPLETON” and calling someone stupid. Lol.

  199. Hi there guys, I’m a new YouTuber from Scotland and a few days ago I just put up my second video!

    It’s just a bit of a laugh and it’d mean a lot to me if you could take a look ๐Ÿ™‚

    I know people hate these comments but so far I’ve got 321 subscribers in a week which
    might not seem a lot but to me it’s awesome! and this is what I’ve been doing, so it seems to be working ๐Ÿ™‚

    Anyways if you could give me a chance and take a look that’d be awesome! But if not that’s cool too, thanks for reading :)))

  200. Your dresses are so beautifull!!! Good inspiration for me…….THANK YOU

  201. Marlena, your body is amazing!! Your curves are sexy & you are so cute & happy! =) don’t change!!

  202. I don’t know what the hell the fuss is about, I would rather be curvy than be a stick!! Blehh!! Cheers to curves!

  203. Your curves are amazing! You have such a gorgeous and feminine body, and it’s so inspiring to see, especially since I’m a curvy girl myself! You are so beautiful inside and out! I also love all of your styling options in this video! I live in Northern California too, and I’ve been loving just throwing on a maxi dress and topping it with a denim vest! It’s my new go to! Thanks Marlena!

  204. Curvy is a shape. Not a size. A size 2, 8 or 16 can be curvy. Marlena has curves and will no matter what size she is…

  205. love all the dresses, love your style!

  206. Gosh u have an amazing BODY!!!

  207. omgsh too cute.

  208. Marlene I love the outfit you have on!!! Where did you buy the skirt??

  209. You look good in maxi dresses Marlena! Please don’t let these negative comments discourage you.

  210. You look amazing! I’ve been following you since your weight loss and you’ve inspired me so much to do makeup and improve my body. Keep doing what you’re doing!!!

  211. I love how polished your looks are!

  212. there are many stores that fit curvy girls and not enough that fit naturally thin girls like myself so I really hope Bebe never change their sizes because that’s one of the stores I can actually shop at

  213. you are sooooo beautiful!! I look up to you and am so proud of you! I myself have a lot of
    weight issues, but you are my inspiration because you are curvy and look AMAZING!

  214. I loove this!! i must say that i cant really wear maxi dresses. From having my daughter i have a lil gut going on lol So it looks weird if you know what i mean =p

  215. what is with some of you ! As women we should build each other up and be happy for one another’s accomplishments. No matter what, if you don’t have anything nice to say, you need to fix yourself and your own insecurities.

  216. She has done fashion through her whole weight loss journey. She did lose a lot of weight and good for her! that is hard! I would also disagree about her being curvy, she is very curvy. Hourglass figures are curvy at any size.

  217. I LOVE YOUR STYLE VERY NICE DRESSES.

  218. You have a great style within your wardrobe. Thanks, for showing the pieces that you have, you can get good ideas on how to wear Maxi dresses for the Summer.

  219. No, I’m actually way bigger than she is. And I didn’t take any offense, I’m just saying that the message shouldn’t be: I can only show myself when I’m thin. And I know she also did it at size 12, I’m just saying, she is not the only one and I don’t like that. Period.

  220. great video!

  221. I say I cant agree with you more… it happens to all of us.. I just love her.. <3

  222. ….Man, freakN shoes (primarily the Black & Nude 1’s)………your style is SO ON POINT!

  223. Marlena, you’re so beautiful! and an inspiration!! love your ideas!
    f)(/&%$#” those haters!!!!!!

  224. Lol. I know! Who gives a fuck about the tag?! And why are so many people obsessing about the fact that she stated she is an 8??? She is beautiful. People are just plain retarded.

  225. You always look so well put together very stunning ๐Ÿ™‚

  226. Why do you care? Lol.

  227. People like you are just stupid. Lol. I think if you looked up the word “simpleton” in the dictionary your pic would be there.

  228. Heels girl! I have the same problem.

  229. What you wrote makes no sense. What exactly is the “bad message” she is conveying in this video???? She lost weight and she’s proud of it and she wants to give other women who aren’t bone thin some fashion ideas. She is a size 8 and she is curvy. I don’t understand why you took such offense to what she said about a size 8 being curvy. Are you just another one of those girls that is obsessed with being thin? Are you a size 8 and don’t want to be considered curvy because u think it means fat?

  230. Barb6106-

    Dots

  231. could not hear the name of the black maxi..who and where to get, please!!! I am in desperate need of a black maxi, but they all have tiny or no sleeves and yours has the sleeve length i require! Thanks so much..this video was so helpful as I see these dresses and only see what is in front of me! You gave me vision!!! Thanks again!

  232. Great looks and ideas of pairing these dresses with different looks. ๐Ÿ™‚

  233. Love the first dress!!!

  234. I’m sorry, a size 8 is not curvy by definition. And yeah, you may have a larger breast and bottom compared to a normal size 8, but still…
    and also… I really dislike all you make up gurus that used to hide behind the cameras before they lost weigh and then are fashionistas after loosing 40 or more pounds. I know, loosing weigh helps feel better with themselves, but it conveys a very bad message, IMHO.

  235. I love love love your videos and I think you’re so beautiful. You’ve come a long way and you’re such an inspiration!

  236. I am heavy chested and need suggestions

  237. Such a beauty!! Do u think you can do a video on what are good strapless bras?

  238. They have vivi plus

  239. People are ridiculous with their comments, you don’t like the way she looks exit, it’s as simple as that. Feeling the need to target a “flaw” that she is already facing is just counterproductive. Most of these people don’t even hve a picture up, meanwhile she is completely putting herself out there with full confidence. The claiming to be skinny girls are driven by fear, that the full figured women who are already an 8 to your 1, will be a complete 10, not because skinny is beauty, confidence is

  240. LOL you have a lot to say little girl, based off the fact you’re too insecure to even put a picture up is comparably ironic to your comments. Maxi dresses definitely aren’t for girls without curves. Otherwise “IMO” they look just same on a person as they do on the hanger…a hot ass mess LOL They are fit for women something you clearly have no clue of ocGIRL008. you need to grow up and just hit the >>>Exit and have several seat smh

  241. Don’t find out till after you wear it and not when trying it on. Get over it marlena has no reason to lie and never has. If you don’t trust her or value her opinion and want to hate then why r u watching?

  242. Oh my god I can’t believe the nasty cements these people are leaving. No wonder you apologize so much in your videos all time. All y’all bitching about some tag ( I didn’t even see) who gives a shit. You ain’t never left a tag on for a couple days just to make sure you still wanted it that it flowed correctly when you wore it, that it didnt itch you three hours later, the tags didnt bother you An hour later after wearing it, that it didnt ride up down sideways while wearing it etc. things you do

  243. Love the dresses. By the way who cares if they all are from bebee if that’s the place to get fabulous dresses than so be it. Ill now be checking out their site because of you And I’ve never heard of them. Thanks. I personally love when you share stuff like this so don’t apologize we love you and your tips and help!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ you look fabulous as always have a wonderful day.

  244. Gorgeous!

  245. Thank you I love this kind of vidios ideas you look beutiful

  246. That Calvin Klein dress is beautiful!!!!

  247. I love wearing maxi dresses in the summer too!

  248. Fat

  249. where did you get the outfit that you have on in the video?

  250. i love the maxi dress and demin jacket!

  251. That green top you’re wearing in the beginning looks amazing on you!

  252. I love your outfit and the earrings!!

  253. Love the shoes you wore with the Bebe dress

  254. you have a lovely figure and always look beautiful and really put together

  255. Cute outfits Marlena

  256. i love the outfit you’re wearing!

  257. You are so beautiful, I’d like to be as you ๐Ÿ™‚

  258. funny how you think that wearing a maxi dress is hiding you bottom, I am a curvy girl with a pear shape and I think it make my buttom look bigger when wearing a maxi dress ???

  259. Beautiful maxi dresses! I follow you on Instagram you looked fabulous in dress #5 ! You look great in all of them as well! Congrats on all your success

  260. marlena holy hell skinny minnie! you go girl!

  261. Same here, I’m 5’4, maxi dresses make me look shorter & chubby, how can I fix that?

  262. I loved this video lots!

    Finally getting into maxis, great inspiration.

    I should just not read the comments. Wtf with the tag comments. And with the size comment, please gtfo. Maxis seriously work on everybody. And look great with layers too!

  263. I soooooo admire ur body shape!

  264. What confuses me with your allegations is that you can look back through her instagram photos and see Marlena is actually wearing the dresses she is showcasing in this video. Your claims are invalid.

  265. It is the sales tag just pause it when she shows the dress and you will see it was a sales tag.

  266. you are one of the sweetest people ever

  267. Hi Marlena, you should really do a video for bathing suits for curvy girls. I never know what to buy! ๐Ÿ™‚ loved your video! Xoxo

  268. Thank you for sharing with us.

  269. No, but because you have tags on a dress means your lying to us, by saying you wore it to a formal event. There is no need to lie. Unless, like someone previously said you wore it with a tag on it. Now, I’m sorry if you got offended, but people are looking to you for inspiration so it’s either you wore it with a tag or you’re lying. It’s a shame either way because of the need to show us an ‘expensive’ dress when you’re not comfortable taking the tags off or purchasing yourself.

  270. Oh ONLY $40? Anyway, thanks for the inspiration!

  271. ah I just love your outfit videos! You are so beautiful.

  272. how about you just lose weight or shop in the stores meant for you plus size girls. like lane bryant

  273. Thx๐Ÿ˜Š. I wrote that and pressed post…..and thought ‘I hope that didn’t sound stauker’ish. I don’t this that is a word. Love you videos, so happy for your success

  274. I am a tiny almost child size person and half the time I find BeBe too small. So, I agree they need to work on their sizing. It’s all on the fit anyway not the size on the tag. And, I’ve accidentally worn things with tags still on them before…I don’t take them off when I get home because I try things on again with shoes, belts etc. to make sure I love them. You look amazing and are an inspirational beautiful woman!

  275. oh Marlena, i like what your wearing today. and all your maxi dress…thank you

  276. haha i know…

  277. Marlena, loved All the Maxis! Especially the B&W one

  278. Marlem

  279. Love this video! You look great!

  280. i love your outfit for this vid! such a cute combo! perfect!

  281. I live in Cali too! The heat is killing me already ๐Ÿ˜› the dresses are beautiful, and so are you! ๐Ÿ™‚

  282. There’s a ton of photos of her wearing it, I bet she forgot to take the tag off. Maybe its just the clothing tag, but not the sales tag. Either way the dresses are super cute!

  283. I love that white and black dress!

  284. I love it! I was getting bored with my dresses, Florida weather is humid so Im really excited to try the scarf style! Thank you!

  285. What are you wearing in the intro? I love that green shirt and belt!

  286. Your body is amazing

  287. I love watching your videos. I am always trying to guess where in sac your pictures pictures are taken….just because I live in sac too.

  288. I LOVE these fashion vids you do. I’m a curvy pear shape as well and I am so self conscious about wearing dresses or skirts of any type because of my shape. Im pretty sure we are not only shaped the same, but about the same size too… And you make these dresses look freakin awesome!! Makes me think “hey, maybe I look like that in them too”. Please do more vids like these. Thank you so much.

  289. You didn’t show the last dress on ๐Ÿ™

  290. I love your fashion vids! Pls do more! Also you look amazing. Congrats on your transformation

  291. bellissima!!!!!!!!!!

  292. Can we get another makeup tutorial soon? Seems to be a lot of clothes and product reviews lately

  293. U look great marlena

  294. Marlena you are so sexy!!

  295. I love maxi dresses

  296. Get a stick of BodyGlide anti blistering and chafing stick. Godsend!

  297. Grab some “assets” or the spanx brand at target.. they have the thigh ones that are like a pantyhose material. Baby powder on the prob area is helpful too… as long as it’s not too hot

  298. You are beautiful, how every women should look.

  299. BB usually runs Jrs sizing 12 and 13 14 year olds not adults.

  300. Marlena, you have the best figure! I’m so jealous! I’ve always been thin and straight, no curves whatsoever, I’d kill for your Kardashian curves!:) you are so gorgeous!

  301. Im actually in love with your current outfit! That green top is gorgeous! Where did u get this please?

  302. U look like a size 12 to me.

  303. I wish I could wear maxi dresses all year round but I’d freeze in Winter if I even attempted to wear one.

  304. I didn’t see tags…

  305. You need Spanx, those are the best for every type of clothes.:)

  306. Hey everyoneโ™ก
    im hosting a HUGE giveaway on my channel right now
    to thank everyone for 1k subscribers
    i would love if you stopped by and entered
    i make beauty and fashion videos as well
    please thumbs up this comment so everyone can see
    xoxo,
    Abbeyโ™ก

  307. i would die in summer with this jackets

  308. In Turkey, Bursa you can find Bebe dresses for 20-25 dollars in local stores ๐Ÿ™‚

  309. not necessarily.. u can try a dress in store (with tags) and love it right away and u buy the stuff that you love so much… although comfortable and durable are the two things that u get to know when u wear it…

  310. the first combo is really pretty, and the shirt and belt youre wearing there

  311. Flats, sandals, gladiator sandals and even flip flops look super cute with the maxi dress! I’ve done all kinds of shoes and I really like the flatter sandals. Altho wedges are a good option, especially for me I can’t wear a lot of heels or stilettos! ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope that helped!

  312. I’ve seen her wear that dress several times so I don’t think it’s just hanging in her closet waiting for her to win a sponsorship. I didn’t notice the tags, it could have been those little “straps” that come on the inside of flimsy clothing items that need extra help when hung up.

  313. I have the same problem! Spanx has a biker short type product that obviously slims you but also helps with your thighs sticking and rubbing together ๐Ÿ™‚

  314. I’m in the same boat hun! #curvygirlproblems x

  315. Marlena I LOVE your outfit videos. I so look forward to them. I have the same body type. As always you look fabulous!!

  316. I like your outfit:) dark green looks nice on you:)

  317. Nice ideas! I’m shaped like you but I’m a plus size girl. All the dresses this year are strapless or have tiny straps, I was looking for other ways to wear them and make them more appropriate. Some great ideas here!!

  318. Using Aquaphor works great at preventing chafing. Runners also have Body Glide and other lubricants. But I love Aquaphor. And if you get blisters it helps prevent them.

  319. Monistat chaffing relief gel! Helps a lot ๐Ÿ™‚ or you can wear spanx or something but I find that uncomfortable.. and defeats the purpose of an airy dress haha.

  320. These dresses fit your beautiful curvy body perfectly. I’m a curvy girl too, and I love maxi dresses, but I really can’t wear any heels because of my size 2(!) feet. What other kind of shoes would you recommend to wear with maxi dresses?

  321. I LOVE your style, but your body shape is very different from mine. Are there any Youtubers that are as fun to watch as you that are smaller in the hips and bigger in the stomach? I’ve always been an apple shape, even at 135 lbs and its hard to make that flattering sometimes.

  322. Usually those are too short for me, I need something that goes almost to the knee. I’ll check again though. ๐Ÿ™‚

  323. Congratulations on being a size 8. I am an extra large and very curvy. no wonder you look so hot. you are an inspiration.

  324. I’m glad to see that I’m not the only one who uses pants! ๐Ÿ˜€

  325. People complaining about the price tag, you can see pictures of Marlena wearing the dress at the event. There could be different reasons why the tag is still there. Sometimes I don’t cut it until I get to wear the dress to make sure it fits comfortably and I like it, and sometimes I like a dress so much that I buy a backup. ๐Ÿ™‚

  326. i love your curves no liee!!!!

  327. Thanks, I will! ๐Ÿ™‚

  328. Marlena, you look amazing! thanks for the ideas! i love Maxi dresses but im a whole 5’1” so i have to hem! lol. …and ladies, you can find slimming shorts by Hanes at wallmart. it doesnt have to be expensive nor suffocating to be rid of that thigh rub ! ๐Ÿ™‚ xo

  329. You can use something called SecretShield. That prevents chubbrub ๐Ÿ™‚

  330. Express still carry that leather jacket probly not the same one but very similar.. It should be in some stores now cuz we’re starting to get fall stuffs..

  331. love iti all. love the white dress the most. thank you

  332. If you look on her instagram, she has worn that last dress and it was like 5 days ago!

  333. You look so beautiful I love them all

  334. You have such an amazing figure! It just goes to show that you don’t need to be super skinny to have a great body! Love you Marlena! <3

  335. She said she wore the last dress but there is a tag on it? Its sad if she made that up and this was sponsored. I really hope that she wouldn’t do that.

  336. @Yassyy123 baby powder! or silicone based lotions.

  337. Agreed.

  338. saw the tag as well, really a pity. just say the truth people will not mind especially since the point of this video was for style ideas and not saying who has the best maxi dresses.

  339. Not sponsored….but the last dress still has a tag on it. So much for wearing it to a formal event. I never leave comments like this, but its sad how the people we look up to lie to us to get us to buy from companies :/

  340. You look fabulous

  341. Cute,

  342. i actually use deodorant inbetween my thighs and it really helps but make sure that you usea roll on one in liquid form and also something that is not creamy or soapy those do not tend to work at all,u can also use baby powder!

  343. i wear spanx or they make chafing cream you can use

  344. If you can handle a shorts type of undergarment try that, like spanx or cheaper alternative. Also try a silicone based gel/stick. Male runners use it to prevent chafing on their nipples. I think it’s called Body Glide.. I think that’s the one I have. It works well, you may have to reapply if it’s super hot and you get really sweaty.

  345. Thank u!!! Great video, u look great….give us an update in ur weight loss please XOXO

  346. the fifth dress is so slimming and lovely ๐Ÿ™‚ gives a hourglass body effect ๐Ÿ™‚ cool ๐Ÿ™‚

  347. I love the dress you are wearing to present this video where is it from?

  348. I just wore one last night, wish I would have seen this first!

  349. I’m curvy too and have the same problem! So I tend to wear tighter cycling shorts under the dresses ๐Ÿ™‚ No one sees them anyways ๐Ÿ˜€

  350. I love this video, lovely ideas. Numbers 3 and 5 are my favourite. ๐Ÿ™‚

  351. I used to be fat, not curvy like you, so you can imagine that I had terrible issues with my thighs rubbing. I loooove skirts so I was putting some body cream, vaseline or baby oil between my thighs, anything that stays a little bit oily, and whenever I was going to the bathroom I was putting again some if needed. This helps a loooot believe me and if you put the right amount, you won’t get any stains on your clothes. I hope I helped. Sorry for my English!!!

  352. I love dresses like that but I have a belly and it’s not beautiful at all when the dress is skin-tight. You don’t have this problem. This flat belly is it due to your operation? Kiss from France!

  353. Love the video – do these companies deliver to UK ??

  354. You need special lingerie, like bike shorts ….that squeeze you in…I don’t know how to explain in english , but look on web sites with lengerie. Hope that helps!

  355. good question

  356. I have the same problem at times and I put some baby powder between my thighs and that helps ๐Ÿ™‚ You could give that a try maybe.

  357. There is special under garments for that, I think target has it in the underwear section where they have the tummy control items, Looks like skin colored shorts that sit on the upper part of the thigh. I know how the skin rubbing feel!

  358. Great dresses, very cute style marlena! I adore the outfit you had on as well! ๐Ÿ™‚ ill have to check out bebe dresses now. ๐Ÿ™‚ If you guys get the chance go take a look at my channel! I just started a few days ago! Please subscribe and comment, I love talking to y’all! -xoxo โค

  359. I have a question: I’m a curvy girl too, and when I wear a dress in the summer my thighs are with soreness… how can I do?

  360. i also have that problem, but ever since i started using avon skin so soft bath oil, i sure any bath oil would do, it really hasn’t been bothering me and i’m also a girl who loves my maxies. i even rub a little extra on when i’m wearing a dress when i know its going to be a long day. hoped this helps. ๐Ÿ™‚

  361. love all your videos and you have great personality!

  362. i know this question is meant for Marlena, but I solved this issue by wearing biker shorts

  363. Try the Monistat Chafing gel. It is specifically for this problem. It’s like a silicone gel that dries smooth on your skin and takes away that rubbing feeling. You can find it in the women’s “personal care” section with the other Monistat products. Great for hot weather ๐Ÿ™‚

  364. I love the green shirt you’re wearing in this!

  365. Very cute maxis! I will have to check out Bebe for these. Working on getting my tummy nice and tight so I can wear some fitted dresses, lol.

  366. You look SOOO BEAUTIFUL Marlena!

  367. You look great, cute maxis! I love maxi dresses… the outfit you’re wearing in this video is flattering on you as well ๐Ÿ™‚

  368. And you didn’t show the last one and cutest one on….booooooooooooo!

  369. Amazing figure and lovely dresses! I liked the skirt and shirt you had on during the video best though ๐Ÿ˜‰

  370. Im curvy as well. but i cant take a dress for too long because my thighs tend to rub against each other, and after a while this reeeaally hurts! How do you do that? ๐Ÿ˜€

  371. You look amazing Marlena !! Healthy, happy and relaxed ! That green kaki top you are wearing is beautiful ! Thanks for sharing your ideas with us ๐Ÿ™‚ Take care !!

  372. Love the video Marlene, fantastic as always ๐Ÿ™‚

  373. Marlena you look gorgeous!! Love the outfits

  374. I’m glad you said that bebe has lining in their dresses because that is my biggest issue! I loveee maxi dresses but I have a butt and they are all so thin that you can see everything and even my hips so I hate that!

  375. Merci pour cette vidรฉo sur les diffรฉrentes faรงons de porter une maxi dress tu m’inspire beaucoup. J’adoooooorrre tes vidรฉos surtout pour moi fresh curvy.

  376. I use to work for bebe and I love their maxi dresses because the biggest issue for me finding maxi dresses is that damn lining !! I’m a size 4/6 and I am pretty proportionate from top and bottom and it sucks that if you have a booty and a maxi dressed that isn’t lined you can see everything !! Idk how women walk around like that but is rather spend the extra cash and go to Bebe. They’re clothes are great sometimes though its limited quantity and sizing which sucks but whatever

  377. I’ve tried with baby powder but it helps for about 2 minutes. I generally wear pants like spanx but less tight. Those are the best solution I found so far. Sometimes though the fabric, the friction and the heat irritate my skin anyway.
    Basically I mostly only wear skirt and dresses in the winter…. ๐Ÿ™
    I’ll try your other suggestions, thank you!

  378. that shirt you are wearing is gorgeous. wonder were is it from because i wanna buy it. love the combination of colors and loved all the options you gave ..

  379. I believe u mentioned u live in sacramento? Me too and yesss its soo hot here!! Bleh I hate it!! U look gorgeous in all those dressses. I dont have the confidence to wear those but maybe one day lol.

  380. mums for a size 8 you look amazing. im a size 28 and i hope to one day to even get to a size 12. youre beautiful!! i love you!

  381. You have AMAZING style! Were you that way at every size or has your passion for clothing changed as your body changed?

    Many Blessings,
    Melissa

  382. Love, love what your wearing on this video!

  383. You look absolutely beautiful! Especially in the green military shirt and black skirt you were wearing while talking! Love it ๐Ÿ˜€

  384. Great dresees!!!

  385. I’ve been looking for a cute maxi dress all spring long! I’m 5’3 and most of them drag ๐Ÿ™

  386. Thanks to you I’ve bought at jean jacket to pair with my dresses. I love the look. ๐Ÿ™‚

  387. i love the last dress…ive seen you in before and always thought you looked beautiful in it!!!!
