    Promising review: "So happy with these! I got the black with white stripes and they are not only functional, comfortable but super stylish! So grateful for all of the positive reviews! Definitely helped me feel confident in purchasing them before trying them on. It said to size down one size and so I did. Everything worked out great." —Kasay

    4. An underwire bra with fierce embroidery on the top to add just the right amount of texture and make it feel more special.

The J-hook allows you to adjust the straps for wear under racerback and criss-cross tops. Use of the J-hook also provides extra support, lift, and minimizing. I want them in every color." — CarmenKryptonite

    6. A printed midi skirt so you can strut your way in and out of fancy events like the true commander of the room you are.


    Promising review: "Love this skirt! It fits true to size and was snug enough that it showed some curves, but was still very comfortable for walking around. Also length is like the photo shows, a bit longer than a true midi. Great print that is not too loud." —UrbanTwentySomething

    Price: $148 (available in 0–24 and three colors)

    7. A linen tunic shirt, because as soon as the weather reaches 90 degrees outside, linen is going to be your new best friend.

Turns out, I could afford it! It's good sized, very attractive, and is sturdy. It is not structured, so it allows you to stuff in plenty of your goodies. I can get a zillion things in mine including a sweater. I've always admired Longchamp and I've finally found something that I could afford." —CarlsbadGal

    Price: $145 (available in seven colors)

    9. A maxi dress so comfortable, you'd sleep in it if you hadn't just worn it all day to the park.
