Floral Maxi Dress + Tips for finding Maxi Dresses for Petites

Floral dresses are my favorite things to wear in spring/summer.  Flowers always put me in a cheerful mood and so do the floral dresses. This flowy maxi dress is so pretty and sweet. It has so many pretty details. I love how the waist tie helps accentuate my waistline and makes me look slimmer.  The v-neck and side slits add just the perfect amount of sexiness. The puff sleeves aren’t usually my thing but I actually like how they look on this dress. I think they add an extra feminine appeal to the entire look. I wore my favorite strappy heels to keep this look feminine. This is a calf length dress and fits me perfectly as a maxi.

I love maxi dresses but being extra petite, I always have difficult time finding ones that fit me without having to cut off ¼ of the dress. Most maxi dresses I fell in love with aren't available in petite. I either end up needing a complicated alteration or  losing pretty hem details. The complicated alterations can cost more than the price of the dress. Lately, I’ve been experimenting with midi and calf length dresses and loving the results. Most of them fit me perfectly as a maxi. Question for my fellow petites, how do you shop for maxi dresses? I’d love to hear your tips.

Thank you so much for visiting.
