Petite-Friendly H&M Maxi Dress

Maxi dresses continue to be on trend this Summer. However, it’s not easy for us petites to find maxi dresses sized just for us. I love this dress after seeing it on Khatu and Hanna but it is sold out in a matter of days. You can image how thrilled I was to spot this maxi dress at a local H&M recently. It must have been fate because this dress was even in my size. I walked straight to the checkout line without even trying it on. LOL. I am pretty sure this dress is no longer available in store. You might be able to find it on EBay (the price, of course, is double). This dress runs on the smaller side. The top part of the dress was super tight on me. I suggest getting one size up if you’re my size or bigger. I just love the print of this dress. It’s so fresh and super feminine. This dress makes me feel like a princess :) My only concern is that the bottom looks so heavy and thick. The hubby suggested I should cut off the bottom and turn this maxi into a sun dress. What do you think about his idea?

  7. CUTE dress, Sydney! I loved it on Khatu and Hanna as well. I think it'll help if you pair the dress with daintier shoes b/c the wedge heels also make the bottom seem "heavier."

  8. @Cee LOL, Cee. That's exactly what I thought when I saw these pictures. Thanks for your input :)

  9. yay! I've been waiting for this post, haha! I'm just so in love with the peachy/light blue color combo of the dress....since it looks so nice on everyone! If you want to alter the dress....I would try taking out the pink layer part, cause that part is a bit distracting somehow.

  10. I like it as is, too, but I also think it would be cute as a shorter sun dress...though that sounds like more work, haha. I agree that lighter shoes would help :)

  11. you should cut it off and save the bottom to wear as a skirt

  12. I love this dress no matter what lady I see wear it. Sydney, you look amazing; even more so with this dress and these pictures. I love the wedge sandals as well to go with it. It would look good as a sundress, but I prefer to keep it a maxi dress. I wouldn't dare alter the length of this dress. Doing so would ruin its beauty (unless you're VERY good at making a maxi look better as a shorter dress). Keep the dress as is, and look like the beautiful princess that you are, Sydney!

  13. I think the bottom of the dress adds to the dreamy effect! It is really lovely, the color, the shape and the length!

  17. OMG, i saw that dress on sale at h&m today and i didn't even give it a second glance because i keep thinking that maxis would be waaaaay too long for me. i think i need to go back and check it out (assuming it's still there...and in my size)!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. @CynthiaC Yes, they are. Tie-in-back straps are fully adjustable.

  21. you do look like a princess! i love how flowy it is on you. The pattern is so pretty..i tried on a different one with that pattern last week but I look so awkward in it lol

  22. yep after seeing it on khatu, i tried finding it. but couldn't find it in my sz. but now I dont know if I'd know what to do about the bottom either.

    What drew me to this dress was the top. it looks flattering on everyone.

  23. Oh Sydney that's gorgeous!!! I remember this on Khatu too :) I like the flowiness of the bottom, I would keep it as is :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love this dress on you. As for the heaviness at the bottom, I do agree with your hubby that you should cut it shorter. OR you can find a way to remove the coral layer. I kinda feel like it cheapens a dress that otherwise looks very classy and summery.

  25. This is sooooo gorgeous on you!! The bottom is a little heavy but it's also part of the most beautiful part of the dress. I vote to keep it too :)

  28. Love this on you!

    I think the bottom is the best part so I would not cut it! :)

  29. That is such a very beautiful dress! I think you look lovely in it's long form so if you ask me, I'd say don't chop it at all ;)
