1. A colorful and lightweight button-down dress that just might be the look of your Instagram dreams.

Promising review: "Love this dress. Cute as a button and bright!! It is fitted in the bodice, so if you are broad-shouldered and/or large-chested, order up!! I am 5’6” and normally wear a 14 — I ordered a 3XL. Perfect length does not drag on the floor. I can wear with flats and sandals. But it runs smaller in shoulders and chest. If I button up into the chest area (as most would normally wear), I will need to put a snap in between one button so it won’t gap and show my bra. Or wear a camisole or colored tank under and leave that one button undone. I love this dress, with or without the belt. I was very pleased." —Jay & GlendaPrice: $28.99 (available in sizes S-3XL and in black, blue, purple, and red)

5. A long-sleeve floral-print maxi dress with some practical AF pockets! Pockets, people!! POCKETS!

Promising review: "It is such a pretty dress! I love the floral prints, the vibrant color, the pockets, and I also like the empire-waist design. This dress gives off a boho and Hawaiian vibe, which I like. It's a dress that will be perfect for spring, summer, and fall. The fabric is soft, comfy, stretchy, and breathable. It is floor-length, and for someone like me who only stands at 5'2", I wear this with heels. Apart from the length being a bit long for me, everything else fits well (I ordered small and I weigh 98 lbs.)." —Chrissy_Lar Price: $3.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in eight colors)

Promising review: "I'm a super plus-size woman who has trouble finding nice dresses, but this dress was everything I was looking for. It was a hit at my company Christmas party! It fit well, the style is exactly what it shows in the picture, and it arrived quickly." —Amazon Customer

Price: $16.99+ (available in sizes L-4XL and in seven colors)

7. A cotton-blend casual day dress designed with a flirty slit and a tie-waist.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I really am pleasantly surprised! It fits great! I’m 5'4” and I was worried since most maxi dresses are too long on me. I can wear flats with this and it's perfect for summer. You do need to be modest when sitting to avoid showing too much, as the slit is high and seems to rise a bit when sitting." —RunnerGirl

Price: $9.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in six colors)

8. A super-soft and stretchy tank top maxi dress to throw on when you're running late and have "nothing" to wear.

Promising review: "I purchased this dress for travel. I ordered a size large, I am 5'3" and weigh 155 lbs. I wear a size 14 in tops (38D) and 12 in bottoms. It is a very pretty, classic-style dress. I was surprised that I didn't have to hem it. It is very lightweight, however not see-through. I will be traveling overseas and want to be comfortable. You can dress this up or down depending on your accessories. I have a simple cardigan sweater to wear over if I get chilly — however, I am usually hot on planes. I won't have to worry about bloating and pants getting too tight during the long international flight. The straps are perfect width to wear a bra. I am 59 years young and it doesn't show all the ripples and bumps I have. This is the best purchase I have made in years!!!!!" —Bill and CathyPrice: $16.88+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in eight colors)

9. A flowing bohemian dream you can wear all festival season long.

Promising review: "I have been wanting a similar dress from Free People but it was $118. I was weary about this one, considering it was much cheaper but it is PERFECT! I'm 5'6", 116 lbs., and it fit absolutely perfect. Great length, too. Keep in mind you can't wear a bra with it and if you are larger-busted (I'm small, A-cup) then it may fit totally different. It's thin and lightweight, but with skin-colored undies I had no problem with lines or visibility. 😍" —Bullitt02797Price: $26.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in six colors)

10. A button-up cami dress that'll be the perfect thing to wear while you're living out your bohemian life.

Promising review: "Out of the three dresses I purchased this was my favorite. It is well-made and the bodice fits beautifully. The dress is very long — I'm 5'3", wore it with flats, and it hit the ground. A must-have for summer." —Corey GPrice: $14.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in six colors)

11. A perfectly whimsical and super-soft halter dress you won't be able to help but fall in love with.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I ordered this dress so I could wear it to the beach one night while I was on vacation and that's exactly what it did. I have a smaller chest size (34B) and I'm 5'4", 115-120 pounds. It came in clear plastic bag so it was wrinkled and the fabric felt thin (I did wear a kind of slip skort underneath it so it wouldn't be see-through). I thought it fit pretty well — it was slightly loose around my chest and maybe a little long, however wearing heels fixed that. It would be nearly impossible to wear this with a bra that could provide any kind of support, so just keep that in mind. Overall, though, I would recommend it (and already have) to others debating on buying this dress. I'm not sure how it would hold up to other body types though. I plan on wearing this dress again to a wedding this summer. It made me very whimsical and beautiful and I love all the pictures I took while wearing it." —Sarah

Price: $12.99+ (available in sizes S-3XL and in 41 prints and colors)

12. A casual elastic-waist maxi made with a comfy stretchy fabric in a classic striped design.

Promising review: "So in love with this dress! The fit is perfect and the print is even more gorgeous in person. I choose a size medium and I'm 5'6", 145 pounds, and it was perfect. The length is perfect because it allows me to wear my heels, which I like doing to dress up my maxi dresses. The fabric is very stretchy and soft, which overall makes this dress great for traveling." —Angela JPrice: $16.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in nine colors)

13. A backless chiffon summer dress you'll easily be able to dress up or down all season long.

Promising review: "I got this dress to wear to a wedding, and I absolutely adore it!!! I'm 5'3" and usually a size 4. Ordered the 4/6 and it fits great, I can see this fitting a size 6 easily with the elastic around the lower back too. The length can be altered depending on how low you tie the front — I can wrap it comfortably low on my chest and still be able to wear heels without the hem dragging, which is always a concern for short ladies when ordering dresses online!" —Amazon CustomerPrice: $22.99+ (available in sizes 0-10 and in four floral prints)

14. A cute AF palm-print summer dress with a drawstring waist so you can always have a perfect fit.

Promising review: "Ordered it size small, it is a bit oversized but you can pull the drawstrings to make it fit. It has a slip, so it is not see-through at all. The material is a bit scratchy but not too noticeable. Overall good-quality dress for the price, I am very happy with it. (I am 5'5", US size 6, and 140 lbs. for reference.)" —Kat K Price: $15.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in six colors)

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I bought this dress for a swimsuit cover-up. Worked great! I'm 5'2" and it just brushed the ground in the back. I'm not saying it's fancy and I don't know if it's sewn well, but it's meeting all my needs plus some. I decided to wear with a sports bra as just a casual summer dress as well." —KTMCN

Price: $9.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 14 colors)

16. A V-neck chiffon dress specifically made to help you fulfill your twirling dreams — or to be a pretty cute bridesmaid's dress.

Promising review: "This dress is so pretty! It's so easy to dress it up and wear it for a night out with heels and pretty jewelry. Beautiful material and flowy! But also easy to wear it casual with strappy sandals and a floppy hat for a casual day look. The dress has a nice elegant feel to it. I love the way it looks! I think the other colors would be beautiful too." —Becky katePrice: $31.49+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in six colors)

17. A drapey off-the-shoulder number people won't stop complimenting.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "I bought a caftan because I was obsessed with Elizabeth Taylor (off of American Horror Story's Hotel). I think I would definitely buy more of these because of its classy loungewear appeal (I'm not a sweatpants or sweater type of girl at all! No thank you). I ordered an extra-small because I didn't want it looking like a complete bag and it's perfect. I think that since I'm 5'2" I'm going to have it hemmed a little. This reaches to my ankles and I would definitely wear heels or wedges with it." —Marilyn Volkova

Price: $17.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 13 colors)

18. A loose fitting, super-soft T-shirt dress for anyone craving some sleeve action on those hot summer days.

I will definitely order other colors!" —jinos aroas Price: $13.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 28 colors)

Promising review: "I absolutely love this dress. I wore it twice in the same week!! It is soft, long, and fits the body well. I bought the extra-large based on the reviews and it is perfect. I am 5'8" and 164 lbs." —Najaulee

Price: $16.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 11 colors)

20. A tie-waist floral-print maxi you 100% need to buy for your next vacation abroad.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "The sleeves are my favorite, super flowy! Note that the slits on the side go pretty high. Really fun, but probably more casual. When the wind picks up, it will get a little breezy. ;) I was worried that the white would be too see-through because the fabric is thin, but with nude undergarments, it wasn't an issue. All in all, I really like it. I wore it around Florida on vacation, and the light weight was perfect for the humid climate. I received six compliments from total strangers wearing it around town." —ajb

Price: $9.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 21 colors)

21. A V-neck cutout maxi that's a party in the front and a total rager in the back.

amazon.com

Promising review: "Love love love! I’m 150 lbs., 34DDD, and 5’10". It’s a little long, which is perfect to pair with heels. I ordered a medium but could’ve gotten a small and it would’ve been okay too. The part that’s important to me is the bust. I don’t like to feel like I’m falling out of anything and this covers a lot to the point I feel secure and sexy! The fabric is stretchy too. Can’t wait to take this to the Caribbean!" —Amazon Customer

Price: $22.99 (available in sizes S-XL and in seven colors)

22. A ruffled off-the-shoulder maxi dress you'll find to be as cute as it is comfy.

24. A V-neck faux-style wrap dress to take you from day on the beach to night on the town without a costume change.

Promising review: "Dress is AMAZING! Loved the overall fit, the material is very comfortable, and stretchy. This is a faux wrap but looking at it you would not be able to tell. The neckline is perfect and shows just enough, but not too much. I would highly recommend this dress. I ordered a size large as I am normally a size 12-14, and it fits wonderfully in all areas and comes just to the floor, perfect to wear with cute sandals. I will be purchasing in all other available colors. This dress is definitely a staple item to have in your closet and dress up or down. I got so many compliments on this dress! I love it!!!" —Amazon CustomerPrice: $24.95+ (available in sizes S-L and in 14 colors)

Promising review: "This is a beautiful dress. I'm happy the product looked how I imagined it. I got a medium, but I should've gotten a small so the top would be a little tighter. Nonetheless, it still looks pretty good. If y'all are under 5'5" (I'm 5'3"), some kind of heel is needed for this dress." —Aileen

It hits right at my feet which is perfect! It’s hard for me to find a dress that doesn’t drag, so I will be ordering more colors! It is not too sheer so I didn’t have to wear any special underwear underneath which is another thing I love about this dress!" —kelly lovePrice: $16.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in eight colors)

Promising review: "I love the dress — fits little tight in the midsection. However, will be keeping. Love the flowy fabric, which is quite soft. Does show a little cleavage, but nothing wearing a tank with it wouldn't fix. Love the print!
