Plus size midi dresses for daytime chic

A plus size midi dress is charming and fun to wear by day. To keep things casual, wear yours with your favorite pair of sandals, and you'll have an instant summery look. Fabrics like linen and cotton are ideal for these dresses. Lightweight and breathable, they'll keep you both comfortable and chic all day long.

If you're worried about a chill in the air, layer up by wearing a jacket over the top of your midi dress. Denim jackets always go well with cute dresses, creating a look that's feminine with an edge. You could also try a cardigan, but keep to shorter styles, rather than longer ones. A very long cardigan paired with a midi dress can drown your figure.

Dressing up your plus size midi dress for effortless glamor

It couldn't be easier to take your plus size midi dress from day to evening. Swap your daytime shoes for a pair of heels, grab your favorite purse and plus size accessories, and you're ready to go. Avoid any shoes that cut across the lower part of your legs, as they can make you appear short and stumpy. That means ankle boots are out, and court shoes or heeled sandals are in.

Frequently asked questions about our plus size midi dresses for women

Where should the hem of my plus size midi dress sit?

You might want to experiment with different styles of plus size midi dresses to find the perfect length. Midi dresses can range from a couple of inches below the knee to just above the ankle. The key is to avoid any hemlines that cut across the widest part of your calf. Instead, try a dress that sits just below the knee, or one that's at the lower end of your calf.

What style of plus size midi dress is best for my body shape?

If you have a pear or hourglass shape, choose a plus size midi dress with a drawstring waist or a belt tie. This will emphasize your waist, giving you a smooth, feminine silhouette. Apple-shaped girls can experiment with shift dresses, sheaths, and tunic styles. You may want to draw attention to your legs if you are apple-shaped. In this case, try a midi dress with a tiered hem. This visual interest will draw the eye downward while gently skimming over your tummy.

How can a shorter girl wear a plus size midi dress?

If you're on the petite side, don't worry. There's a plus size midi dress out there for you! Shorter girls should look for a dress that sits just below the knee. Longer styles can swamp you, so they are usually best avoided. For maximum style points, always wear your midi dress with sandals. The open look of these shoes helps to elongate the leg, making you seem taller. It's best to steer clear of long jackets. A jacket in the same color as your dress, or a very similar tone, can also help to give an elongating effect, giving you the confidence to get strutting in your midi dress!
