Maxi dresses are a style to match every shape. While a summer maxi dress suits everyone, it's important to find one that accentuates your shape.
Get the style right for your figure and you'll look like a goddess, get it wrong and you'll look like you're drowning in a very pretty sack. Here are some tips to follow when buying a big size maxi dress that complements your body shape.

If you carry more weight around your thighs, you are among most pear-bodied British women. Balancing the top and bottom is key to finding a maxi dress that accentuates your figure.
Avoid dresses that are tight around the hips and make your shoulders wider with a strapless or sleeveless style. Divert attention from the hip area by choosing an empire waist dress.
Women's tops also need to find the right dress to balance the upper and lower body. Avoid high necklines and choose V-necked dresses to enhance the bust. Loose floating numbers suggest a more precise bottom for maintaining balance.
Those with a ruler or a childish shape can use ruffles and bold patterns for added texture and femininity. The added belt can be moved around the waist to create the illusion of an hourglass shape.
Women lucky enough to have an hourglass shape can wear almost any type of maxi dress, but you may want to highlight your best features anyway. If this is your shoulder to you, a halter neck or strapless maxi dress will grab attention in all the right places. Increase your natural waistline as an accessory with a large hip belt.
