Promising review: "What a great find! This is just a plain T-shirt dress and fits just like a T-shirt dress should. I was actually very surprised at how much I liked it in person. I love the ombre dye job. I ordered and XL (38 D and size 16 pant) and it fit great. I could have sized down, but I figured with washing, it may shrink and I'd rather be safe than sorry. I've found that the material does stretch a bit while wearing. Highly recommend!" —MCGet it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in eight colors, sizes XS–3XL).

27. A maxi dress with a slit you'll love to strut your stuff in.

Promising review: "Love it! Very cute for summer. I thought it would be wrinkly from packaging, but hangs nicely. The pictures make it look like the slit is very open, but it's not, which I prefer. I guess if you stick your leg out awkwardly far then it would be revealing, but if you walk and stand normally then you don't have to worry about too much showing." —Matthew Mayer Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in six colors, sizes S–XL).
