How to wear maxi dresses if you are short like me

Loading ....

If you are petite, maxi dresses can be a challenge to wear. Be very selective, because they can either look super flattering on short women or totally overwhelm you.

  8. Hi I just found you. I am petite so interested in all tips for petites. Loved the video!

  9. I am 5’4″ and overweight but working on weight loss. Also I have a long torso and short legs. Thanks for the tips.

  10. Another winner of a video. Good explanation of maxi dress options and styling…you rock!

  11. Dear Chi, congrats great video.
    Like you, I’m 5.2″ and I love maxi dresses. This Summer, I got a pink&nude midi dress which I’ll pairing with nude pumps. It look so pretty😉
    You look so beautiful in your gorgeous maxi dresses.
    Many thanks,⚘

    1. @Petite DressingThanks 😉😉😊

    2. Thank you so much Tatiana! So glad to hear you got such a pretty dress!

  12. I’m so glad I found you! Your videos have been very helpful to my petite shape. Would you also please include some of the nude shoes in your upcoming videos? They are super cute!

    1. Hi Sharon! For sure! So glad to hear from you!

  13. Yep, I love the slits. Thanks for that tip!

    1. Glad you like them!

  14. You have this down to science. I watched several times to understand how it works. I never wear dresses anymore but with this video I am going to try dresses once again. Grate tips.

    1. @Petite Dressing🌺 Chi: I’m not into dresses at this moment either (more skirts @ this stage), but still enjoyed this treat and hearing more of your savvy analysis. 🦋Plus, you looked lovely in all your maxi dress recommendations! 👏

      🤩 You are an extraordinary expert on balance, proportions & how to trick the eye👁️ for women of all heights & sizes. You’re doing a super ⭐ service for petites, but your knowledge & influence deserves a much wider audience.
      🙏 Hope that your channel skyrockets in popularity one day soon💙!

      😘 Love that you’re witty, compassionate & responsive to your viewers as well as gifted in presenting your brilliant lessons too. 🤗 Feel so blessed that you came across my path!

    2. Wow, thank you!

  15. I lack so much confidence when it comes to clothes (5″, curvy apple shape). You videos are so educational and fun, thank you! X

  16. Helpful video – greetings from switzerland 😉

    1. So glad to hear you like it!

  17. Love maxi dresses. I wore them as a teen in the 70’s, had a closet full of beautiful maxi dresses my mom made for me. I didn’t wear very many when I had kids, not practical. Now that the kids are gone, maxi dresses are back in my closet. I never knew maxi dresses were a problem for petites, except for actually finding one that isn’t as long as I am tall and having to cut a foot off the bottom…

    1. So glad to hear you love maxi!

  18. You are the only fashion you tuber who talks throughout the video, that I enjoy watching. Very informative along with your visual examples, and your cute humour. You look great in all your clothes. So often when you are petite, you don’t know why things don’t work for your body, so this is very helpful. Thank you.

    1. Yay! Thank you!

  19. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻🇨🇴 Colombia

  20. New subscriber! Thank u for your channel. Im always excited to discover retailers that offer stylish, affordable clothing to petite women .

  21. Where I live, we are having slow opening up, so that we can go to the movies, enter stores and eat outdoors at a restaurant. I went shopping to look for shoe sales and there wasn’t much of a selection. I looked at regular price shoes and I couldn’t find nude shoes, booties or proper sandals. I still find this to be a challenge. Also, can you do a video on good foot socks to wear with booties without showing the sock and for to sock not to slip off your heel as you are walking? I need some but I don’t want to struggle by buying every brand to only discover none of them work.
    Great video on maxi dresses! I haven’t looked for this season and I’m saving to build Fall, Winter, Spring wardrobe. I already cultivated very small ankle boot collection but still searching for nude ankle boots. 💋

    1. 😉 I’m on the hunt for a pair of nude suede cowboy 🤠 ankle booties as well as a loafer, oxford, and maybe a ballerina flat.

      🤣 It’s tricky to find shoes that fit my wider feet, let alone that fall in my 💲budget. Buying online is almost impossible〰️and results in far too many returns.

      🌺Chi has convinced me about the
      🪄 magic in choosing skin colored shoes, but it’s also a challenge to find any I like 😖 too. 🍀Good luck!
      💚 Bridget from Cali ☘️

    2. @Petite Dressing Much appreciated!💋

    3. Totally hear you Christina! And I will make a video on the boot socks subject!

  22. I love maxi dresses, too, but they often need to be hemmed shorter. I have been avoiding the really full ones, because they’re so much work to hem.

    1. So true!

  23. I went straight to order the black satin Express petite dress,,,all gone!😣

  24. Excellent!

  25. I am 5 feet, fairly slim, love love maxi dresses, and am 78 yrs old! I am a little self conscious about showing too much upper arms which are slightly crepey. Thoughts? No long sleeves please.
    Love your tips, but wish you would consider older petites also.
    Want to look youthful, not older dowdy.

    1. Thank you SO much!

    2. Great point!

    3. Hi Gloria- thank you so much for letting me know! I WILL be sharing more tips on dressing the mature petite ladies!

    4. @Daphne Thanks, good tips. I am quite slim except for my arms for some reason, i will try the butterfly sleeves, thanks again.

    5. I also find my upperarms usualy quite unflattering, I have some keratosis pilaris and a bit of extra «chicken filet» skin/fat on the bottom of my upperarm😝🤷‍♀️ What works for me is for example «butterfly sleeves» in summer. They are wide, above the elbow and nice and breezy. Almost like wearing sleevelss but still covered 🤗 I find tight short sleeves either too hot or they accentuate the extra fat too much 😅 I have 2 maxi dresses with butterfly sleeves and I love wearing them when it is hot! ☀️🥵

  26. Always look forward to your videos! Love hi-lo and wrap dresses!🌹🌹🌹

  27. This was so helpful!! I never thought about wearing a maxi dress because I thought it was for tall people only! Thank you for your tips and explanation.

  28. Love your videos, I also love all the dresses you are wearring… I would like to know if some of the dresses that are sold out are coming back? Thank you.

    1. Thank you! We will have more styles in the coming weeks!

  29. You are super funny! I like you a lot

    1. I am sooo happy to hear that Amanda!

  30. Tip : if the hem hits above or at your ankle, it’s the perfect length.

  31. I just adore you!!!

    1. You are sooo sweet Tanya!

  32. Love maxi dresses. I’m in search for a slip dress. Love your black one 👍🤩❤️

  33. Imagine being 5’2 and plus sized. It’s like retailers don’t know plus size people are short/petite too. I can never wear maxi dresses if I don’t get them tailored. Will try to use these tips

    1. I totally hear where you are coming from and how frustrating it is!

  34. I love your Advise

  35. That red dress w sleeves is gorgeous! Might you have a link?

    1. @Petite Dressing thank you

    2. That was from Nordstrom Rack- I think it’s sold out now but I’ll find a similar dress from the same designer.

  36. I definitely can’t away with anything shiny or satin, it accentuates any flaws. Thank you for making this!!

    1. Thanks for letting me know!

  37. Great tips, thanks! Will definitely use these. Also happy to know you have a store:-)

    1. Thank you!

  38. Very helpful. Going shopping now, much better informed.

  39. Excellent information, thank you. I tried a few maxi dresses this summer but found they overwhelmed my 5 foot 1 inch body. They had alot of flaryed material, so I my mum made them into knee length dresses. So if they are straight down I think they may look better.
    Thank you Chi.

    1. So true! So glad you like it!

  40. Oh no!!! That fantastic EXPRESS black slip dress is completely sold out in petite! I have been looking for a long slip dress in Petite size for ever!!

  41. 🙏🏾🙏🏾😍😍❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️👍

  42. Great tips

  43. I can’t do wrap dress. Never looks good on my large bust. I don’t know they just never work for me.

    1. 💘 In love with wrap dresses. They are so flattering for many different body types, esp. an hourglass⌛ , but it can be tricky finding the right one.

      👍Ruffles can conceal tummy issues. Like the 👀peek-a-boo 🦵legs when you walk too. Although I will wear 🚲 bike shorts underneath to feel more secure. 🌬️ Been caught in some windy locations that whipped up my skirt a time or two 😳.

      😉 Whole heartedly agree with you about the complications of having a bigger bust. Most wrap necklines end up exposing way too much cleavage for my comfort😖. And, I’m quite picky about having just the right coordinating undershirt, camisole, tank, etc. So, unless I already own something suitable, I’m more likely to pass on some wrap dress or top that’s too revealing.

      😱 Depending upon how it’s cut, it can sometimes look like my breasts are sitting right on the sash (or “waist” too) which is never a good look 😔.

      🤔 Skip strapless & spaghetti strap dresses (or tops) altogether. My girls need full support. Like to stick with sleeveless (or cap sleeve) garments when it starts to🌡️heat up 🥵.

    2. I’m 38 D, sometimes have to put a stitch in the surplice of the V-neck or hide a safety pin there. A wrap dress with the ruffles helps hide my fat tummy.

    3. I find that too. I have a large bust.

  44. Love, love, love your videos. Great information. Thank you!

  45. Im not petite, but you have great tips for me too. Love this channel, you are so much fun 😊

    1. I’m so glad!

  46. You have a very good shape and model such beautiful dresses 🌼🌺. Thank you for the tips
    Especially giving us the exact length of dresses for our height

    1. You are so welcome! And thank you so much!

  47. always great tips

  48. I am so HAPPY to find out that I can wear Maxi dresses!🎉🎉🎉🎉
    Thank you so much!❤️❤️❤️

    1. I’m so glad!!

  49. Thanks for mentioning your store. I surely will check it out!

    1. @Petite Dressing I did check out your store. The clothes are lovely. I particularly enjoy seeing the clothes that you have modeled.

    2. Thank you Judith!

  50. 4’11” here🥲

  51. Almost at 100k! I found you when you were less that 5k subs and I have truly enjoyed your videos. They have been a game changer for my 5ft 3” frame. Thank you.

    1. Thank you soooo much! I truly appreciate you (and so many petites) have continued to watch my videos!
