striped maxi dress for a beach party lovesurf

Since its introduction in the 1960’s, the maxidress has been providing great casual coverage for women in a plethora of styles and colors.  Women were quick to discover the flexibility and benefit offered by the maxidress and it has never really gone out of style, acting as both casual sportswear and cover-ups at the beach or after a workout, or a pairing for other pieces.  LoveSurf loves our maxidresses and has them in prints, colors and styles to suit almost everyone.

The word “maxidress” invokes different images for different people.  Some consider a long-sleeve tunic a maxidress, while others do not apply the title to any garment that does not reach the floor.  For most of us, however, the term “maxidress” invokes the idea of a long dress, often made of cotton or terry material.

Maxidresses come in almost any configuration imaginable.  Some have a built-in bra, especially if they are sleeveless or tube-top styles.  Others have long, flowing sleeves and high necklines.   The variety of styles available for maxidresses is almost unlimited, so you are sure to find one that fits your figure and your lifestyle.

Maxidresses that are very large and “floating” may be the choice of girls who want to cover up problem areas.  However, be careful when using the maxidress for this purpose.  Wearing oversized clothing can actually have the effect of making you appear larger, especially if the material is a bold print, bright color or horizontally-aligned.  Instead, look for maxidresses that cleverly contour to your body rather than hang in a straight line.  The more curve sewn into the dress, the more likely it is that the dress will fit you well and flatter your figure.

LoveSurf believes the maxidress is one of the most versatile and economical pieces you can own in your summer wardrobe, so browse our great selection and find the perfect maxidress to fit your needs.
