THE BEST BLACK MAXI DRESS FOR AIRPLANE TRAVEL

Tabeez  - Asymmetrical Maxi Dress

95% Rayon/5% Spandex

Machine Washable

S - L

Made in USA

I love the brand Tabeez's selection of different black dresses, in fact I've included three of their dresses on this list! This is a nice and comfy black maxi dress, perfect for airplane travel. It has a cute asymmetrical cut at the bottom and features 3/4 sleeves for the arms.

During airplane travel, especially if headed overseas, I am located for comfort - not trying to wear any slinky and tight clothing onto the plane. This dress also comes in 26 other colors, many of them bright and super fun, perfect for long walks through a new city.

This dress is made of 95% Rayon and 5% Spandex and is made in the USA! The fabric is stretchy and feels just like a soft t-shirt. As you can see in the photo, you can easily dress it up with accessories for a night out. Just pop in a belt if you want the dress to be more formfitting. This is my number one pick for the best maxi travel dress!

Jostar -  Tank Long Tank Dress 

90% Poly./10% Spandex

Machine Washable

XXL - 3X

Made in USA

Jostar's maxi dress is made of 90% Polyester and 10% Spandex. It features a soft, flattering neckline and is made in the USA. The total length of the dress measures 51 inches in length. If you get hot on the plane, this is the perfect travel dress. You can pair it with a little shawl or jacket and remove if you feel hot.

The material of this dress is nice and stretchy but you don't have to worry about it stretching out. It runs on the small size so plan accordingly when selecting your size.​ The shoulder, neck and arm openings are all well designed so you don't have to worry about anything showing.

Even after a long flight it remains pretty wrinkle free and it hides those extra pounds if you find yourself overeating on the flight!​ Also there are 14 other colors to choose from. I highly recommend Jostar's dress if you are looking for the perfect basic tank dress for your travels.

On Trend - Paris Bohemian Long Maxi Resort Dress

96% Poly./4% Spandex

Hand Wash Only

XS - XL

Made in USA

Love On Trend's little black resort dress, it covers everything but has a dipped V necklane to just show the tiniest bit of skin. I love that the dress comes 15 other styles and prints, instead of just a bunch of other color selections. 

This dress features 3/4 sleeves that can easily be pushed up if you get hot during your travels. It's a faux wrap dress and you can tighten or loosen the dress with the belt at the waist. This dress is made in the USA and is a breezy, effortless dress, ideal for travel. It's also totally wrinkle resistant so you don't have to worry about spending precious vacation time in the hotel room ironing!

This dress runs small in the arms and if you are unsure of your size, go up a size to be safe. This dress is made of 96% Polyester and 4% Spandex and it is hand wash only in cold water. The fabric is stretchy and forgiving and the weight is solid so that the dress hangs nicely. A great pick for a wrap-style travel dress!

Jay Jay's casual maxi dress is made of 95% Rayon and 5% Spandex. It's also available in 4 different tie-dye prints and in two other colors: blue and a faded red. It's a loose fit dress and has sizes available for plus size.

I love that it has two side pockets for your belongings and passport. The rayon fabric is of good quality and is stretchy and I love the fun criss cross design at the neckline, its super playful. The fabric is also very absorbent so not only is it perfect for plane travel but its versatile enough to be used as a coverup at the beach.

The material of this dress is baby soft like a nice worn in shirt and it has a nice billowy effect when are walking. You can order is size down if you like more of a fitted look. The cut of this dress is really ideal to feature any body type and it just moves so flattering with your body. It's well made and the fabric isn't flimsy or cheap.

The fabric is lightweight and the dress is also available in 5 other colors. Its a button down dress which fits well but if you have a large bust you might want to go up a size. It features sheer darts at the bottom of the dress which I love, its of excellent quality, youthful and fun.

Tabeez - Long Babydoll Jersey Maxi Dress with Long Sleeves

95% Rayon/5% Spandex

It's Tabeez again! This time with a bit more conservative version of their other black maxi dress. It's in the babydoll style and is made of 95% Rayon and 5% Spandex. The waist is subtly pleated with a feminine and flowing skirt.

This dress features an elastic waistline just under the bust. I don't prefer any kind of elastic when traveling but I understand that many travelers as aren't bothered by elastic in clothing as I am. The dress runs very long so you might have to trim it if you are a shorty like me. 

Yanekop - Sleeveless  Maxi Dress

Next up we have a more form-fitting travel dress from Yanekop. Sometimes you still wanna look sexy while traveling! This dress runs small so size up if you are uncertain! If you have a super curvy body you might want to consider going up two sizes.

N/A
