The maxi dress is a huge style trend, but it’s not always offered in petite-friendly lengths. Crop most long dresses about a foot, and maybe you’ve got a chance. And what if you’re shorter with shape? That narrow tube of stretchy fabric may not be highlighting areas you want to show.
We’ve done a maxi dress makeover that allows petite shoppers and shorter women to get in on a summer style that works with their height and shape. The XS size of our Kismet Dress measures 48” from the top of the shoulder strap to the bottom of the hem; that means if you’re 5’0” tall, it won’t drag on the ground!
The skimming A-line shape flows and drapes without either overwhelming or constricting, for a happy medium that works with many body types. The front and back print mix panels have tiny elasticized gathers making bust fit flexible for torsos of different widths. Instead of skinny straps, we’ve got real shoulder straps that allow you to wear a regular bra. And the style can be shaped at the waist with our fabric belt for women who want the waistline definition. In breathable natural woven cotton, it’s a summer option designed for dress success.
As always, we produce with organic fabrics, low-impact dyes, and fair trade practices, so your shopping comes with peace of mind. A maxi dress that maximizes your style, fit, and values? Yes, we did!
