    1. A v-neck maxi with an adjustable tie to make it so it's not too long and not too short. So, basically, it's the Goldilocks of dresses., Amazon

    Promising review: "This is one of those perfect dresses for an all-inclusive resort or cruise vacation. It's very reasonable price and has a cute tropical designs. I'm on the shorter side (5'3"), and the length was perfect for me, which was good because usually a maxi dress is too long. The way the dress ties in the back allows you to adjust the length for a great fit in different kinds of shoes." —Katie Bags

They're super cute and great for the office. They're probably not a great shoe to wear running around a city all day as they don't have much arch support." —Megs

    Promising review: "I bought this dress to wear to a wedding, and it was perfect. I am typically a size 6, and the small fit me perfectly. I am 5'6" and the longest part of the dress in the back hit just above my ankles, which was a little longer than I thought it would be, but it's still a nice length. The material has a teeny bit of give, but it is not stretchy. There is a built in skirt lining and the bust is lined as well, so it was not at all see through, and I did not have to wear a slip. I highly recommend this dress and am definitely considering purchasing another in a different color." —Ellie

I purchased (I believe an XL) using the sizing chart, and it fit as expected. The material was great, not cheap looking but very stretchy. If you have a large bust, be aware that the material will stretch a bit (slightly stretching the design), but it did not look badly. I would definitely recommend purchasing." —K. Perkins
