long maxi dress in plus size

Alloy wins. Yep, this is officially the longest maxi I could find out there! At 62 inches, this will fall at floor length for most tall curvy bodies, even those over 6 feet tall.

This dress has mostly 5 star reviews, and it’s versatile: it can be classed up in the ivory or black colors, or worn more casually in the summery yellow (as pictured here on a curvy body by tall plus size hero, Andy la Grange.)

I’m 5’11 and 240 lbs and have been looking for a true maxi dress for tall women for a long time. It fits well and I love the color. Thank you Alloy!

super long maxi dress in plus sizes

This is a loud dress from SHEIN and I’m all about it. The floral pattern is eye-catching and the criss-cross tie to do it up at the back is an elegant variant on the traditional maxi dress, so long as you have someone to help you do it up!

Importantly, it’s got overwhelmingly positive reviews from tall women. One reviewer who was 6 foot even said she had a few inches to play with to account for heels if she wanted to. Check!

auselily very long maxi dress


Auselily make this dress in sizes from small all the way to 3X and deserve a ton of credit for the variety of body types this dress can fit. There are a range of colors to choose from, I personally like block colors when it comes to maxis, but mixing patterns can be good for hiding my belly. While it’s probably not the best quality starting at $22, the reviewers on Amazon absolutely LOVE this as a casual maxi dress. 

What’s more, tall plus women are well represented in the reviews. Very tall women say the length is adequate, and the dress almost touches their feet. For the price point, you can’t go wrong here.

Etsy can be a really useful option for finding specially tailored clothing like extra long plus size maxi dresses, but this is straight out of the box and for a modest $69 will absolutely have the length and glam for tall to very tall women.

The floral patterns give this a distinctly summer look without being too much. A lot of this seller’s dresses can be worn casually to summer events, or styled up with earrings and jewelry for a wedding reception or cocktail party.

long plus size maxi dress

The tie at the front maxi offers a look that’s both functional and classy, and the simple floral pattern on the light green is beautiful. This runs to 56 and a half inches on their model, but expect it to be slightly longer when you size up. Reviewers say this runs large.


torrid ombre tiered maxi dress

Sizes up to: 6X
Lengths up to: 56”+
Price: $21.98
Shop it: Here

Those of you who know me will know that I trust in Torrid, and not only do I trust their fit, but this ombre maxi is one of the most elegant dresses on this list.

The 56 inch length is based off a size 2X, so it stands to reason the higher up you go size-wise, the more length you’ll be given too. The tassels off the neckline flow into the ruffles and give a wonderful texture to the layers. 

I always try to give some air time to as many awesome brands as possible, and I know some women with smaller chests aren’t the biggest fans of Torrid’s shaping, I get it, but as a tall plus they consistently deliver for me when it comes to maxi dresses. I’m 6 foot and a size 18/20, and never have a problem with their lengths.

long plus size maxi dress

This is a versatile maxi with loud, multicolor patterns that can cater to relaxed summer picnics or dinner parties. IyMoo create dresses with curvy women in mind, and as a result their sizings stop at 2X, but this is their longest option and stands to fit tall curvy bodies up to at least 6 feet.

This is definitely for the Tall Girl Crew – length wise – there’s no shortage of fabric.

So, I must admit I came across somebody I follow in the tall plus community rocking one of these dresses a while back but I can’t, for the life of me, remember who it was. Just trust me on this, it’s a genuinely long length maxi made for plus women who want to slay at a gala/evening function.

I like the contrast between the duller blue velvet and the glitter on this especially. Bear in mind some reviewers noted the glitter doesn’t stick perfectly to the dress.

This tropical-patterned maxi should keep you cool and covers the upper arms nicely. There are a lack of reviews and information on this but given the impressive length, I thought it was worth including. We can overlook their definition of a “plus size tall maxi dress” is up to a size 2X 😜


maurice’s floral off the shoulder maxi dress

Length: 51”

I was drawn to the pop of this dress when I saw it styled excellently by Brittany Price. She’s 5’8” and you can clearly see how long the dress is on her; not quite ankle length, but this would work for anyone that height or a little taller as a mid-calf maxi.

The teal with the floral patterns makes this perfect for a day in the office or date night. I particularly love an off the shoulder maxi because it covers your upper arms and does wonders for your confidence if you don’t feel like bearing your arms to the world.

This is just ideal for a day in the office paired with sneakers or flats. The tropical teal color caught my eye, and it’s available in a variety of bold, block colors. The length is *only* 55 inches, however a reviewer who’s 5’8” says the length is good on her. I’d place this in the “slightly tall to tall” range as an alternative to the traditional maxi.


maxi dress size guide

height classminimum advised length (to ankle)
5’7″-6′51-57″
6’+58″+

To help frame the sizings for each dress, I’ve put together a basic chart for tall, plus size women that takes into account things like bigger boobs, belly, and hips when looking for the minimum length you’d want on your maxi dress. For reference, I’m 6 feet tall, size 20 with a 34 inch inseam and I look for a minimum length of 57/58 inches to get the proper “flow” and drape to your ankle that you want in a maxi dress. Of course, it’s up to you if you want it mid-calf or ankle length.

If you’re an infinifat, you may want to add a few inches. Likewise, if you’re more on the slender side of plus size, you could get away with going slightly shorter. Based on other tall plus women I’ve spoken to, and my own experiences, this is a rough guide regarding what lengths to look for.


That’s the 2023 edition of the best plus size maxi dresses for tall ladies. I loved putting this together! If you have any other suggestions to help us all out, lmk in the comments!
