    I believe that it's a basic human right to have that one magic dress you can put on and feel pretty any time, anywhere.


    This can be tricky, because so many frocks only work for certain seasons or occasions, so you can't always wear them when you want.


    That's why this amazingly affordable fit-and-flare dress is especially awesome. The midi hemline, 3/4 sleeves, and classic shape all make it appropriate for pretty much any season (it totally works with tights) or occasion. It's that unicorn of a dress that can be both professional and party-ready.


    Plus, it has a chic tie at the waist that can be knotted in the front or back, so you can play around with which you find most flattering. It also comes in tons of fun prints, including a lemon-motif one (you can see it on some of the reviewers below) that's giving me serious Dolce & Gabbana vibes.

    But what really sets this dress apart from the endless clothing options out there are the hundreds of positive reviews it has! Folks love the fit, the flirty style, and of course, the unbelievable under-$30 price tag.


    Promising reviews: "Oh my GOSH. You need this dress in your life. I wear a size 14/16 and am 5'2" and a 40DDD, and this dress fit like a GLOVE in an XL. It's a tiny big tight across the bust, but I wouldn't have wanted a different size. The fabric has a small bit of stretch, but not much. It looks way more expensive than it was. It's definitely a steal. Wearing a petticoat under it makes the dress." β€”Kate M.

    "I love this dress! I purchased it on a whim because it was pretty and the reviews seemed very positive, even for curvier girls. I'm generally a 2X-3X, with a larger bust, and this dress fits so well! I don't feel like it's pulling or stretched over my bust and the waist fits great. I ordered the 4X because some of the reviews suggested to order up, and I'm glad that I did. I wore this to work and everyone complimented it, including some random lady as I was walking into the grocery store to get lunch. I definitely recommend this dress, and I'm planning on getting it in a couple of other colors." β€”Nicole D

    With tights or without, with a colorful statement necklace or all black, to an event or for every day...the possibilities for wearing this number are endless.,

    Left photo review: "This is the perfect plus size fit-and-flare dress. I wear a size 18W and I ordered the 2X. I received a ton of compliments. It's the perfect silhouette for the full-figured woman. The material is sturdy but not heavy, and this dress can easily transition between spring, summer, and fall." β€”Amazon Customer

    Right photo review: "I highly recommend this dress. It’s very flattering, has a decent construction, and the fabric is very pretty in person. I ordered a size up, as I have larger arms and shoulders. It’s roomy but not too big and feels great. I’m very pleased!" β€”Elizabeth Forster

    Lots of reviewers also recommend throwing on a pretty petticoat underneath to give it a little extra flare, and also a little extra flair.,

    Left photo review: "I had so much fun wearing this dress that I now call it my happy dress (I'm convinced it would be almost impossible to be in a bad mood wearing a lemon dress and a crinoline)! I went up a size, and the fit was perfect. (I'm normally a 16W-18W and I ordered the 3X). The fabric is lightweight and very comfortable. I'm looking forward to ordering more." β€”Amazon Customer

    Right photo review: "This dress is beautifully made! I'm very happy with it. I'm normally a size 4 in dresses, and I got a medium in this dress. It runs true to the measurements in the description. I got a petticoat to add volume to the bottom of the dress but it's not necessary; it can be worn with or without. I was just attending a vintage party and wanted a bit of a fuller look. I definitely recommend, and I got so many compliments on this dress!" β€”Amazon Customer
