Plus Size Maxi's for Tall Girls (Featuring YoursClothing.co.uk)

A few weeks ago I got into a conversation with some Plus Size Princesses on Twitter. I mentioned that because I'm 5'10, its hard for me to find maxi dresses that are long enough. Of course there were shorter PSP's who complained that most maxi's are too long for them but hemming a dress is an option for them, Tall girls can't add fabric. So I thought I'd share some of my tall girl tricks for maxi dresses.

This summer I bought a few plain strapless maxi's from Target. I've been sliding them down under my boobs to make maxi skirts. Sometimes I tuck a tank-top in that's the exact same color as the skirt, add a belt and voila, it looks like a maxi dress. Other times I do color blocking. My favorite way to do this style is to use my halter swimsuit. This ensures that there will be no bunching under the skirt and its an easy beach look.

The other thing I do is look for maxi dresses with adjustable straps. YoursClothing has an amazing selection of plus size maxi dresses and a lot of them have adjustable straps that can give an extra inch when we need it. For "vertically challenged" PSP's they also sell maxi's that are 48" for women under 5'5. I wore my YoursClothing maxi when Robert and I spent the day in Central Park last weekend. A few women stopped me to compliment me on the dress and ask where I got it, that's always a good sign! I styled it like this:

Hopefully this gives my tall Plus Size Princesses a little hope when it comes to wearing Maxi's. Of course, if you come across any extra long Maxi dresses while you're out shopping please let me know!
