If you’ve tried shapewear, you know how confidence-enhancing it can be. Shapewear smoothes cellulite, shapes your body and sculpts trouble areas so you feel like you did in your glory days. But shapewear isn’t the only way to achieve this confidence boost — we found a way to do it fashionably!

The right maxi skirt will make you feel like a million bucks . . . notice we said the right maxi skirt. When it comes to choosing a flattering maxi skirt, you want to first choose one that has a high waist. From there, you can either go for a tight bodycon maxi skirt or a loose flowy one. Both can be flattering, but if you’re looking for a bodycon one, a good rule of thumb is to make sure it’s either patterned or made of a thicker material. This ensures everything is smooth and sculpted!

To make things easier, we gathered 16 of the most flattering maxi skirts we know of. Whether you’re looking for a loose, tight, solid, patterned, A-line or pleated one, your new favorite maxi skirt is waiting for you. Details below!
