The Maxi Dress

Stylist Tameka Foster (ex-wife of Usher Raymond) looks radiant
in this bright printed maxi-dress. 

The maxi dress is one of the easiest style pieces this season.  They look great on most body types as long as you pick the right fit.  If you're tall make sure you find a dress that actually reaches your ankles.  There is nothing worse than a maxi dress that hits you in the middle of your calf.  It doesn't look right.

For fuller figures try to find a balance with print and style.  Avoid a pattern that is too busy and go for one like the print you see pictured on Tameka Foster above.  Wrap maxi-dresses look great on everyone.

A maxi-dress on pregnant women looks best in a solid color that skims the body.  That doesn't mean you should avoid patterns altogether but, you should be careful of the prints you select because it can make you look much bigger than you actually are.

If your body is straight, go for styles with a defined waist so it give you a little bit of curve.  Also a neckline that is more open with give you the look of a fuller bust-line.
