Even though I wear skirts almost every day, I love dresses as well. Unfortunately, I don’t wear them as often as I should. It’s been difficult to find dresses that meet my standards. I am going to share with you my guidelines for how to feel comfortable in a dress. Mikarose has been kind enough to sponsor this post.
How to Feel Comfortable in a Modest Dress
As I mentioned before, I used to work in an office that had a kneeling rule. If you kneeled and your skirt touched the ground, you were okay. I take that a step further. If I bend over, my hem must touch the back of my knee. Unfortunately, a lot of dresses for sale don’t meet this standard and are actually much shorter. At the other end of the spectrum, the market is saturated with maxi dresses and I’m too short for those!
I like a skirt that is not tight and that I can move in. An A-line skirt is the perfect fullness that I need; although, some pencil skirts can have a looser fit. These two dresses show how both skirt types can be modest.
I prefer to cover the tops of my arms a bit, whether it be with a cap sleeve or a quarter length sleeve. The only type of sleeve I don’t like to wear is anything with a cuff or a button; my arms have gotten a little large for those.
I love feminine dresses that are sewn with ruffles and pintucks. I also adore the addition of flowers, ribbon, lace, and chiffon accents. I found my perfect dress in the Emma Dress. Chiffon flowers adorn the bodice; chiffon also borders the neckline and sleeve. The hem even has a beautiful ruffle, making it the perfect length! The heather grey fabric is super soft–such a comfortable dress to wear!
All the Mikarose dresses are equally as lovely and modest. I definitely will be shopping there often and loving my new look in modest dresses. What was I so afraid of?
