Whether you’re a bride, bridesmaid, wedding guest or good friend who plans on attending everything from the engagement party to some bachelorette weekend this summer, a good dress is hard to find. Especially when the weather heats up and comfort becomes a serious consideration. Obviously our go-to has always been a maxi dress since it’s pretty, easy to wear and makes dressing up or dressing down a snap depending on the right accessories.
But not every maxi was designed to fit all. In fact, it can sometimes be a real headache when you’re plus-sized, petite, or have a large bust to contend with. So to help you kick off the official start of wedding season, we did a little online style stalking and found seven fab options that work in a pinch and then some.
Click through the slideshow above for some great suggestions to help you dress to impress (minus the dressing room drama).
