    Promising review: "For me, clothes pay for themselves based on the number of compliments that are received when an item is worn. I already liked the dress the moment I put it on, but all day long women commented about what a lovely and pretty dress it is (ooh, I like the color, ooh it’s so pretty, ooh, that dress looks like the start of a whole new wardrobe). The compliments made the reasonable dress price feel like a bargain deal. I guess I’m a sucker for polka dots and the power of hearing something positive during the day. In summary, this dress fits well, looks good, makes you feel good wearing it, and even a 9-year-old boy can take a picture of his mom in this dress and this dress still look I just need to decide what other color to buy." —Isadelle Mercedes

    Check out BuzzFeed's full write-up on this dress.

    Promising review: "I'm one of those people who never writes reviews. I found this dress through a BuzzFeed article and couldn't resist the white sunflower one. The material is stretchy and just fits your body so well. I didn't have any problems with it being see-through while I was wearing light gray underwear. The length is cute. The buttons are fake, so they stay uniform all the way down. It's stretchy across the back of the bodice, so bigger-chested women would love this. My mom and I have completely different body types and the size large fits us both amazingly! I'm definitely going to try to order as many prints as I can!" —Courtney Clark

    Reviewer wearing black dress

You have to find something to go under it yourself. I used a sexy semi see through number under my dress and used a cute belt to really define my midsection. This dress is so sexy. You can't go wrong! " —Courtney Gardner

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in sizes S—3XL and 10 colors).

    23. A floral wrap dress perfect for anyone who is obsessed with flowers but refuses to wear pastel colors.,

    Promising review: "I searched through about 300 'cocktail dress with long sleeves' options before finding this gem! The material is great — it stands up to wrinkles/long car rides and doesn’t cling at all. The cut is (really) low so I got some skin/fabric tape to close it up. This is a large; a medium would probably have been too short. I love it!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes S-3XL and in 16 prints).

A bit more blue than pictured, which is good, and consistent with other reviews. The sleeves were nice and stretchy and weren’t too tight at all around the opening. It honestly feels as comfy as a nightgown. I can’t wait to wear it more, I tried it on and it was so comfy I left it on to run errands! It’s great with flat sandals, and I just ordered another color bc I love it so much. Say hello to my new summer uniform!" —Lauren L.

    Reviewer wearing blue dress

    Promising review: "There's a lining that extends to approximately the upper thigh and a few hook and eyes for a better fit in the upper bodice, or breast area. They give allowance for different breast sizes, which can make ALL the difference! The bodice also leaves an option for a cami to show through, or to adjust the amount of skin you're comfortable with showing. I ordered my normal size and it fit SO perfectly! Love the long flowing sleeves and the embroidery, it's done tastefully. Can't wait to wear it this spring and summer!" —MyaChelle

    Promising review: "This dress is absolutely gorgeous, I love everything about it. The material, the fit is great, the print is stunning as well. I honestly thought I wouldn’t like the print but I wanted a white dress so bad. The picture definitely doesn’t do it justice . It’s so lovely and I got the extra small.
