    Promising review: "This is one of those finds that will restore your faith after a bunch of bad choices. I found my holiday dress, for sure. I'm a US 12/14, bust 40, waist 33, hips 44. I ordered an XL. I could have absolutely gotten a large, but I wanted it just a bit looser and was worried the length would be too short. It wasn't — I'm 5'7", and it comes down to just above my knee. The color was gorgeous as well, and it slides off the shoulders just beautifully. I will be ordering a black one ASAP, and probably a blue one...omg they're so pretty. You can dress it up with heels, or down with leggings and boots." —Hailey

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This dress is awesome for the price. It's really cute and has a nice vintage feel to it. It is very thin, but I'm excited to wear it for fall and winter. As long as you put a slip on, you're fine. The fit was great, especially if you're an hourglass shape. It is a little shorter side, for all you tall ladies out there. I already wore it for my engagement photos, and I think it looks great!" —Cece47

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in sizes S-XXL and in five styles).

    21. A scoop-neck knit number that people will probably think you got from a very expensive department store, and it's totally fine if you don't correct them.

I probably could have gone down a size down in the dress, but I wanted to be comfortable for the evening. Also, I washed it once and let it air dry. It seems very durable." —L. Eittreim

You can pair with black tights and booties to wear out at night or cover with a sweater and high boots and go to work. The ruching and draping is very flattering, and the color is gorgeous. You can’t beat the price either and because it's made of a soft cotton, it travels well too." —2fewshoes

    Promising review: "There are few words to describe this dress. It is absolutely gorgeous! Fit as expected and looks as pictured. The inside is silk, so it is super comfortable. It comes to a good length, I'm 5'7. It is stretchy so you could probably size down if you like a real fitted look, or size up to keep it loose, but I'd go with your true sizing. I would recommend this dress and many other Esprlia dresses for everyone. They really make some amazing dresses. Thank you! 😊" —Amanda Barnes
