I have always loved clothes and getting dressed up; I've even been known to squeal in delight upon seeing the perfect accessory or piece of clothing. But my favorite thing about fashion is the way the right garment can make us feel like the best version of ourselves.

That's why I'm kinda freaking out about this classic, '50s-esque fit-and-flare number I found on Amazon. It comes in over 40 (!!!) colors and prints, is under $30, and has more than 1,400 positive reviews. Most importantly, the review photos show tons of happy customers of all ages, shapes, and sizes looking totally 🔥 in it — and it's giving me all the feels.

Like, honestly, the woman above looks ready to run the damn world in that gorgeous yellow shade.

Don't believe me? Just listen to these fabulous review queens:

"This is the most perfect vintage style dress. I ordered a medium — I'm 5'7" and weigh 138 lbs. — and the dress fits like it was made for me. I love the fabric too, and I'm usually very picky. It's slightly stretchy, just enough to hug all the right curves. I would strongly recommend this product. I love, love, love it!" —Monija

"This dress is super cute! It can be dressed up or down, and the fabric is nice. I needed a dress for a family photo shoot and I bought about seven dresses. This was the winner over all of them, even one that cost $200!" —T. Snipe

It's so versatile. If you want a little extra volume, try tossing a petticoat underneath:

"This dress is absolutely divine. The pic on the left is with an underskirt and on the right is without. I can wear it either way. I'm totally pleased. I'm wearing an XXL (my bust is size 38G and I’m 211 lbs). The dress is lightweight, and the price is unbeatable. It's well worth it! I love it so much that I bought it in many other colors and prints." —Karen C.Get a highly reviewed petticoat for $10.99 (available in sizes S-4X and in 23 colors and styles).

You can rock it as part of a quirky costume...

"I used this dress as a costume (Minnie Mouse) and loved it. It was very comfortable to wear all over Disneyland for an extended amount of time. I'm definitely going to purchase a solid color to add to my dress collection. There's a bit of stretch in it to fit a larger variety of body types, and it also accommodates people like me whose weight fluctuates depending on the time of month. 🙈

I'm 5'2" and between 122-127 lbs., and the length comes to a couple inches below my knees. I have fairly muscular arms from carrying around my 15-month-old son, and the sleeve holes were not at all constricting for me. I do want to note that after washing and drying on a regular cycle, it does need to be ironed. I don't mind though — I like it that much." —Jennifer

"This dress looks fantastic. I wore it on a recent cruise and got many compliments." —Ainslie757

...for a special occasion...

"I wore this during my maternity photo shoot, and it worked out perfectly! I recommend going up a size because the top fits snug if you have a larger chest. This is a 2X and I'm eight and a half months pregnant in the photo." —Cassie

"This dress is absolutely perfect! I bought this to wear to a holiday party, and received SO many compliments. It fits very well and is perfectly comfortable. The material isn't too thin, so I was able to wear it out in winter weather without freezing. The sash for the bow is completely separate, so you can adjust it as needed. This is easily one of my favorite dress purchases." —Kat

Basically, this is the perfect spring (or summer, fall, or winter, for that matter) dress and I'm seriously blown away by how awesome it is.
