#6 Underwear optional:
(As long as the material is not sheer that is icon wink fashion style ). Run out of clean undies? Is it so hot and humid that you wish you could walk around in your birthday suit? Free ball in a maxi, and let it all breathe.

If you have unsightly stubble, no time to shave, or just want to give your skin a break from the razor, a floor length maxi can cover up those fuzzy stems as well as a pair of pants. This benefit ranks #1 with many ladies.

You can dress up a maxi dress with heels and statement jewelry for instant elegance and glam for a night out or event, or dress it down casual and be beach ready with a sunhat, flip flops, or flat thong sandals.

You won’t have to sacrifice style for comfort with the right maxi dress. Who wants to be uncomfortable in the dog days of summer? That can make mommy a real b$#%ch! That goes 100 fold if you’re with child, or going through the “change of life” when your body temperature and mood are about as erratic and volatile as a phone call from Mel Gibson.
