    Promising review: "I purchased this three days before a wedding I had to attend. As soon as it arrived, I tried it on and i fell in love. The dress is such a good length, the material is super stretchy, and it fit my curves so well. I got so many compliments on it! Super worth it." —Claudia Velez

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in sizes 0-22 and in four colors).

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Definitely buy this dress! I ordered my usual size and it literally fit like it was made for me! The v-neck is sexy but very classy. The dress is on the shorter side, but since I'm kind of short it was perfect. It definitely looks just as good in person! I wore it to a wedding and got so many compliments on it." —Amazon User

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes S, XL, XXL and in two colors).

    Promising review: "I wore this to my wedding rehearsal and dinner. I love the ruffles and the loose fit! I originally bought the teal green, but I had to go back and order the other two colors. Plus, this has pockets!" —Lg

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in seven colors).

    Promising review: "This is SO CUTE! I can’t wait to wear it this this summer. Many have said they used it as a swimsuit cover up, but I will definitely be wearing this as a casual maxi dress! The material is slightly silky and very substantial — definitely more substantial than just a cover up. You can even tie up the front into a knot for a cute hi-low look. Just make sure to size up for a more relaxed fit!" —Richie P.

    Promising review: "This is one of my new favorite dresses. The material is nice and thick without being too heavy, and the quality is very nice. It doesn't feel cheap at all despite the $20 price tag. It's very versatile and can easily be dressed up or down. Love it!" —Spudma

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes XS-3X and in 35 colors).

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 20 colors).

    amazon.com, Amazon
