Could you write some things about the maxi skirt? (which body types can wear them, how to wear them, what kind of maxi skirt)
Maxi skirts are a fashion trend that has been around for a couple of years (or so) now. It’s possible to wear them with every body shape, in many ways, they are like a pair of trousers. But like trousers you want to consider:
- The volume
- The waist detail
- The shape
and then suit the most suitable version for you.
If you want to create more elongation always go with a column of colour too!
Such a great post. I love helping people work the maxi!
Yay, I’m doing it right. I’m an X with a long rise, and my legs are a pain to keep hair-free, so maxi skirts are good friends to me.
Love maxi skirt!
Good advice, great shapes
I feel that maxi skirts draw attention to my upper body… Which is not exactly what i want. I have nice legs but a little bit of a tummy… If i “keep the line clean”, i feel i look like a nun. So i always try to add some curve with dark, tight tops. Still, i don’t know if i should wear maxi skirts at all. I just feel awkward whenever i wear them.
Maybe you need a different style of skirt? One without too much volume. Also remember to add a detail near your face to create a focal point.
I like the feel of maxi skirts and I wish I could wear them more often but I always have trouble with what underwear to wear under them that doesn’t show. I have a soft butt and so my seamless bikini brief panties dig in to my cheeks and leave indentations on my rear that I worry accentuate my loose booty 🙁 however if I wear a thong then without any support down there I have really jiggly buns whilst I’m walking and moving 🙁 i used to be unaware of my undies being visible to everyone and never cared to check for panty lines until one day at a formal gathering my daughter pulled me aside into a back room and told me that she could see my underwear and to look in the mirror at my backside. I wasn’t insulted but glad she told me because I didn’t realize that my panties were digging in significantly on my hips and bum and could be seen from quite a distance. I pulled my panties off and had them in my purse the rest of the night but since then I’ve yet to find panties that sit on my butt and can provide some support and not give me double cheeks under dresses. I can get away with thongs under jeans which generally can hold in the jiggle but under dresses I either compromise for panty lines or a lot of flabby jiggle even though I’m only 160ish pounds. What undies do you recommend that dont cut in but also support and firm things up some? Any help is appreciated much and thanks in advance and sorry if its a bit of a tmi
My recommendation is to try either boy short style underwear or go up a size (or 2) then the seams really don’t dig in!
