I fought buying a skirt in the midi length since they don’t fall into the “rules” of what is supposed to be flattering when you are petite. You know, the things you read that state, if petite, skirts should be above the knee, or maxi length, to make you look taller. With more and more midi styles being introduced, I kept looking and looking, talking myself out of it every time. Finally, I bought one that I liked so much, I didn’t care if it made me look shorter. Now, I seek them out. (Plus, the right style also hides when you’re bloated).
