    1. An off-the-shoulder cocktail dress that's perfect when you're aiming for a retro look but want something that's both comfortable and stretchy, especially if you have a large bust.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I bought this for a holiday party, but am definitely going to wear this for many more occasions to come. I'm 5'3" and 275 lbs., with most of my weight in the belly area. The 3X fit wonderfully on me. It hits midway down my calf, and the fabric is stretchy enough that it could accommodate larger busts. I love this and will probably get this in black too. It's a beautiful, classic, multi-use look. I felt and looked amazing in this dress, and received compliments all night." —Tracy Velasquez

    Price: $39.99+ (available in sizes S-3X and nine colors)

    2. A classic fit-and-flare silhouette available in almost 40 different style options and even better, has pockets! Hello, holy grail of dresses!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These dresses are fantastic! And this is coming from someone who has always hated wearing dresses. The material is soft and not too heavy, the cut is great, and the POCKETS! I've bought more than one already in the more youthful patterns, and I just adore them. They're comfortable, but I feel completely pretty." —Thatgirl

    Price: $25.99+ (available in sizes 14-26 and in 37 styles)

    3. A beautiful lace dress so gorgeous and versatile that you can wear it as a wedding guest, a maid of honor, or even as a bride yourself.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This dress is PERFECT. It fit like a glove and was comfortable. It was very true to size and color (navy). It felt well-made and the lace was in perfect condition. I ordered several dresses for a wedding and this one was an instant keeper as soon as I put it on. Will definitely be looking at this brand again when I need another nice dress!" —OhSaySugar

    Price: $32.69 (available in sizes XS-3X and in 19 colors)

    4. A playful Peter Pan collar dress that's perfect if you want to dress up like Wednesday Addams or Sabrina the Teenage Witch on Halloween (or any day of the year!).

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this dress and the fact that it has pockets made me giddy as heck. Bought two sizes, 16W and 18W, because we all know that plus sizes aren't always the same. However, these were surprisingly close to accurate. The material allows for a smaller size, because it's very stretchy. So buy a size below your norm, especially if you want it to fit to your shape." —cv

    Price: $27.99 (available in sizes 14-26 and in five colors)

    5. A pretty floral wrap dress to inspire you to book a vacation somewhere that's sunny, STAT. Even reviewers who don't typically wear dresses have become fans of this one because of how well it fits almost any figure.

    Promising review: "It’s so pretty, almost breathtaking. This would be a great dress to buy for traveling because it is kinda slinky and doesn’t wrinkle. It also would pack into about a quart-sized ziplock bag for reference. I think I’ll get another one in black for that exact purpose." —Mamarose

    Promising review: "I’m usually a size 18 so I ordered a 2X and it was big for me. I just added a little belt and it fit perfectly. The dress is very cute and I got a lot of compliments. It’s breathable fabric and has cutout designs on the top and bottom." —Alexis Pienkos

    Price: $33.99+ (available in sizes XL-4X and in four colors and two sleeve lengths)

I am very busty and curvy and it was absolutely perfect in all areas." —Rachelle

    Price: $32.99+ (available in sizes L-4X and six colors)

    17. A bodycon pencil-cut dress available in a wide range of plaid and checkered prints. Perfect to wear to go from work to a night out (just throw a moto jacket over it for an edgy twist).

    Promising review: "This is one of my absolute favorite work dresses of all time! I feel like Joan from Mad Men every time I wear it. I get compliments every time, and people are shocked to hear that I got it for less than $20. This dress looks even better with a skinny belt to define your natural waistline, and the mock turtleneck collar is a classy detail that pulls it all together. The fabric is stretchy enough to hug your curves, but not cheap-looking. It's thin enough to be comfortable, lightweight and breathable, while still being opaque and good quality. Oh, and it doesn't wrinkle!" —Rebecca

    Price: $22.99 (available in sizes L-5X and in 11 options)

    18. A 1950s-inspired swing dress offered in a ton of colors, prints, and sleeve lengths suitable for any event during the summer.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This dress is a must-have! I bought it for a funeral and it was casual, yet dressy enough for the occasion with some added jewelry. It is so lightweight and comfortable. The sleeves hit just above the elbow. The skirt hangs a little past my knees (I’m 5’6"). The pockets are super convenient. I would definitely recommend it!" —LU88

    Price: $24.89+ (available in sizes 1X-4X and in seven colors)

    20. A boatneck tea dress serving up serious Audrey Hepburn vibes and available in almost every color and print you can imagine. Many of the reviewers have bought it in multiple colors and recommend adding a petticoat underneath for extra pizzazz.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is my THIRD 'color' of this dress this summer. I have worn all three to weddings, and strangers were stopping me to compliment me on my dress. Classy, fun, and timeless. Don't skip the petticoat and you'll bring down the house!" —Jessica L Redding

    Promising review: "Immediately after opening and feeling how soft the fabric was, I had to throw it on. It is so comfortable and I can't say enough how soft it is! Such a great house dress to just lounge around in. Definitely can dress this up with a cropped denim jacket, thin belt, and some flats. I already ordered two more of the same in different colors." —Ms. Powell

    Price: $26.10 (available in sizes 1X-6X and five colors and prints)

    22. An off-the-shoulder bodycon dress sure to turn heads anywhere you go. It's a little bit '80s in a good way and reviewers love its body-hugging silhouette. Pair it with high heels for the ultimate Kelly Bundy-inspired look.

    Promising review: "Loved this dress. Super cute and comfortable. Material is perfect. It felt light and was not thin to the point that it's see-through like some dresses. Yes, the bottom is oversized, but that's the point of a tunic/babydoll dress. Definitely recommend this dress." —est0907

    Price: $32.99+ (available in sizes L-4X and four colors)

    24. A short-sleeve bodycon dress appropriate for workdays. Reviewers love it for its simplicity — you can easily add bold accessories to spice it up, and wear it with either tights during cooler weather or bare legs during the summer.

    Promising review: "I loved this dress. Simple, classy, and professional. It molded to my body and it wasn't too long. It can be worn with a nice necklace to spruce it up, and flats and/or pumps. The material is also versatile enough so that it can be worn year-round; all you need is a pair of stockings or tights, but the dress will work either way. I plan to order more colors." —LadyLestat

    Price: $22.99+ (available in sizes L-5X and 10 colors and prints)

    25. A chiffon evening dress so elegant, you'll feel like a princess wearing it. Reviewers love how gorgeous it is at an affordable price point.

    Price: $49.99 (available in sizes 14–26 and 14 colors and prints)

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    amazon.com, Via amazon.com

    Promising review: "Flowy dress! Beautiful color and quality-looking fabric for the price. It runs a little big, so I would size down for a more snug fit. I also like that there is a button near the V-neck, so I didn’t feel like I was hanging out of the dress!" —Jennifer

    Price: $35.99 (available in sizes 16-26 and eight colors and prints)

    Price: $33.99 (available in sizes 16-26 and in three options)

    29. A two-piece dress that, according to some reviewers, is the official "hot girl summer" outfit. Because it's technically a matching set, you can adjust the skirt to show a little bit of midriff if you want. Plus, it comes in over 35 options so you can buy multiples for vacay.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Let me just say this outfit had me FEELING MYSELF!! I purchased it for my recent annual girls trip, which was in Miami this year. I was a little nervous because this is the first two-piece outfit I’ve ever purchased, but get ready because the compliments will not stop! Price + look + wearability + comfort = WIN!! I purchased XL and I wear a size 16. The material was breathable w/ a little stretch but not see-through. Will be purchasing additional colors!" —L.Red

    Price: $18+ (available in sizes XL-5X and 36 options)

    30. A retro halter-style dress for anyone who fantasizes about being a pinup model (but still comfortable!). This is another style that would look even more fabulous with a petticoat underneath. It also comes in a wide range of colors and prints, including cherries, gingham, polka dot, pineapples, and more.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This dress was perfect for my friend’s Kentucky Derby-themed bachelorette party! I paired it with a fascinator clip in 'hat' and the Grace Karin petticoat and it matched perfectly with the dress.

    Price: $26.99+ (available in S–3X and in 45 colors and prints)
