Poll Results on Maxi Dresses and Skirts on Petites: Yay or Nay?

Last month, we asked you whether you thought that maxi skirts and dresses worked well on us petites.  We were a little bit surprised about the results – didn’t think that there’d be an even split between a “definite yay” and NO (both at 32%).  My question to those who think long, period is bad on all petites:  Why would all bridal gowns be long if they looked bad on short women?  I don’t think I’ve seen too many knee length wedding dresses, save for a second marriage with a ceremony at City Hall.

As for the rest of the results, 27% said that length really depended on the style (i.e. some maxis work while others don’t) and 9% said that dresses were okay, but definitely not skirts (I had expected this one to be higher!).  Do you agree with these results?

    I have seen a lot of petite blogger with maxi dresses, and they look fabulous.  I guess it really does depend on the style. I think a long maxi dress/skirt can make you look tall, if you have the right one that fits your shape.
