    Promising review: "Hands down, best dress for a fun night out! It hugs your body, and you can adjust the back to get it tighter or loose. The color is the same as the picture, the length is great too. Not too short or long, just right. It was stretchy and comfortable to sit down and dance with all night. Two thumbs up." β€”America

    8. A vintage style dress that will have no problem going from work appropriate to party ready.,

    Promising review: "This dress was a hit with everyone. I got SO many compliments that I didn't want to take it off. I did wear a petticoat under it to give the skirt more fullness. The fabric was thin but not see-through, I didn't have any issues with seams or stitching and there was just a bit of stretch which was good for the sleeves. I wish I had more reasons to wear dresses every week because I would probably order one of each pattern." β€”Allison Rosing

    Promising review: "I usually wear a size 16 and the XXL fit perfectly. This dress is sewn from a soft, medium-weight knit with stretch, and the dress is tailored to fit the shape of your body (but not like a glove, so not tight).

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in nine colors).

    Promising review: "I work in an office in a major metropolitan area. This dress is perfect for work or casual outings. You can dress it up or down. It is exactly what I hoped it would be β€” flattering and super comfortable. The pockets are great. I layered with a full microfiber slip, opaque tights, boots, and chunky jewelry. Thinking of ordering more colors!" β€”GoldenEra711

    Promising review: "Welcome to comfort city. If you're looking for a form-fitting little black dress, this is not for you. If you're looking to wear what I believe clouds made into clothing would feel like, well then you have arrived my friend. It's a nice sweatshirt material made for Goldilocks β€” not too thin and not too thick. It's perfect for the gal that takes her bra off as soon as she gets home. This is also nice to run errands or take road trip in. Just add some leggings, cute boots, and a scarf and it'll look like you kind of tried for the day but feel like you're wearing PJs. AND IT HAS POCKETS. POCKETS!" β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes XS–3XL and 18 colors).

    19. A scallop-hemmed A-line dress you *have* to twirl in everywhere you go β€” and that means from work straight to dinner. This is mandatory, I do not make the rules.

    Promising review: "Love this dress! If you follow the sizing chart that they provide it's easy to get your correct size. For the amount you pay, you get much more than expected. The material is soft and not scratchy or cheap. The detail towards the bottom is crisp and clean. I’m 5’1 and the dress hits above the knee which is a perfect size for me. The sleeves also reach my wrists. To compensate for my chest I had to get a large. I would definitely purchase again if anything ever happens to the old dress. EXTREMELY HAPPY." β€”Valerie

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and in six colors).

I can't wait to receive them in the mail. I ordered two this time because I know the XXL will fit. The material is very good β€” NOT CHEAP AT ALL!!!

    Katy Mospanyuk /, Ghislaine /

    Promising review: "LOVE the dress! I purchased it with very low expectation as it is priced inexpensively. Turns out it is actually a nice dress! It is thick, not see through at all and does not feel cheap. The see through sleeves were intact and the pearls were nice. I purchased this dress just because and ended up wearing it to a wedding, and when my husband saw it he was quite impressed and even asked me what we paid for it. He couldn't believe it was under 20 bucks! Totally worth buying, great piece to your closet." β€”Josie Catrox
