The Original

The first maxi dress was actually created back in 1968 for Elizabeth Arden, little did designer, Oscar De La Renta know that it was soon to be carried on by other massive names such as YSL and Dior. In fact it seems that our love for the maxi dress won’t be fading out any time soon.

In Popular Demand

So why is the maxi dress so popular? Well if you’ve worn a maxi dress before you’ll know that it allows women of all shapes and sizes to really flatter their favourite parts of their body and hide all the wobbly bits that we would all rather keep hidden. When a maxi dress is worn by a smaller woman you’ll see that it creates a curvy body whether that’s by adding a belt to it or keeping it how it is. The maxi dress can be figure-flattering for any woman, it just all depends on how you wear it and what colour it is whether it’s got a print or it or is quite plain. Either way a maxi dress is a piece of clothing that will never disappoint.
