Shorter length maxi dresses

I'm 5'3" and all the maxi dresses I've tried are far too long. I'm not keen on the petite ones on Next. Where else could I find shorter length ones?

Dorothy Perkins petite is good

I have one from Oasis that's a good length for me (I'm 5'4).

Gap, M&S & Boden all do shorter length maxis.

Try asos. It's where I buy pretty much all my petite clothes.

Isme has their own brand called South that does lots of petite maxi dresses. And Boden but they're more expensive.

I am 5. Foot 1. I always take the hem up myself as I find that petite range maxi skirts & dresses are a weird slightly too short length. Same with trousers

I'm 5'2" and have just bought two perfect length ones from Dorothy Perkins petite.

To add they are floor length without shoes, agree with whoever said they are normally too short in petite ranges, these are true maxis

Muji seem to be shorter as standard

Ceecee, I will have to have a look smile

Monsoon do a shorter length version of some of their maxis, usually listed on the site separately, rather than as one item with options to choose either length. I am 5'4 or 5'5 if I stand up straight, and I think they would be fine on you.
