The Excellent Tips for Petite Women to Style Midi Dresses

Are you looking for a petite midi dress and want to add it to your wardrobe? I’m always desire to pull out wholesale midi dresses and wear them as often as possible. Generally, I suggest that petites go for either shorter or longer. If you like shorter, you should opt for a mini dress that is above your knees 3-4 inches at least. The mini length is perfect for those who want your legs to look slender. On the contrary, if you are not a big fan of mini, then a longer dresses at ankle length could also look great on petites by lengthening your short frame.

  1. Choose the Right Length of Midi Dresses

    The trick to looking for the right length of a petite midi dress is to choose a dress that is just above or just below the widest part of the calf. This allows you to fully accept the trend of midi dress but ensure that you’re still flattering your petite figure. You may want to avoid rocking any midi dresses that rest at the widest part of your calf. The reason behind this is that when a midi dress is at the widest part of the calf, it will highlight the area and cause you to appear shortened.

    This is especially important for those who are self-conscious about their wide calves. If you have athletic and wide calves and you do not want to attract more attention there, then select a midi dress either shorter or longer than your mid-calf. When you make small adjustments to just above or below the largest part, it will instantly slim and extend your length, which is the dream of petite women.

  2. Look for the Lighter Fabric of Midi Dresses

    As the midi length has the risk of making petite women appear shorter, you actually have to pick the fabrics carefully. Look for a suitable fabric for your midi dress, which should be light and doesn’t add much weight to your figure. This sheered sleeve patchwork polka dot dress made of lace gives the outfit the light and airy feel. Since the lace midi dresses have a certain see-through effect, they will reduce the risk of making your legs look cut-off when you throw on them.

  3. Midi Dresses with a Slit

    When wearing a midi dress as a petite women, the increased length is what tends to cause some struggles. One of my favorite ways for short women to rock a midi dress for this season is to choose a midi dress that has a slit. The slit could be on the side or in the front of your midi dress. Either way, it is going to look more flattering for a petite girl. The slits reveal a bit more legs which instantly creates more of an elongated leg lines. The most fascinating of a petite midi dress with a slit is that you can get the best of both worlds, where you have the trend of midi dress but get to show more legs as you would in a mini dress style. What’s more, slits add a sexy feel to the midi dress!

  4. Fitted Upper Body of Midi Dresses

    Since midi dress are one solid item, it’s essential that you should pay attention to the entire dress and how it fits to ensure that you select the right dress for your petite figure. In addition to the length aspect of the midi dress, I also like to suggest that you pay special attention to the upper part of the dress. In order to make the midi dress look good on a petite woman, you will definitely want a dress with some details at the waistline to accentuate your waist for major figure flattery. Apart from the waist aspect, you should also ensure that the midi dresses you wear are form fitting at the upper body.

  5. Cinch in the Waist with a Belt

    If you rock a midi dress without giving your waist definition, you will look like a short block of fabric. Make sure choose a midi dress that looks flattering with a waist belt. Even if the midi dress you shop doesn’t come with a belt, you must add one extra. Of course, unless you’re going for that relaxed and casual look. If you are going to a formal party or even a dinner, try experimenting with a belt and see how it changes your midi dress.

  6. Keep the Color Consistent

    Although midi dresses can be found in various styles, colors and patterns, we need to concentrate on selecting petite midi dresses that aren’t going to shorten our body shapes. So I suggest choosing something to provide you with a single color matching. Selecting a midi dress with consistent colors or patterns will help prevent other shapes from being cut off. When you choose a midi dress can be either one solid color or a pattern that is consistent throughout the dress, which is going to create the appearance of a longer and slimmer line on your body.

I hope this tips can help you to feel confident to give midi dresses a try. Don’t be afraid to try your favorite style, even others say you should avoid it. It’s fantastic if you love it. If you don’t, you can also give it a try at least and eliminate the curiosity.
