Promising review: "This dress is fantastic! I am quite a busty woman so I tried to read lots of reviews before selecting a size. I went with an XL, and it fits perfectly. The material is very soft. Though it felt heavy taking it out of the package, it wasn’t heavy at all despite its thickness, if that makes sense. And it has pockets! I ordered a different color because I was so pleased with this one." —JonaessaGet it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and 11 colors; also check out the sleeveless version and striped version).

8. A stretchy A-line dress that'll make getting dressed on Monday mornings a total breeze.

amazon.com

Promising review: "So I never buy clothes online unless I've tried them on in real life, but I made an exception for this based on the crazy amount of positive feedback this had. OMG WORTH IT. It's so soft and drapey and I'm probably going to buy five more in different colors. I was worried about my upper arms fitting because they're big and have always been the bane of my existence in finding dresses with sleeves, but the sleeves on this were plenty stretchy. I'm 5'5", and the dress hit juuuuust below the knee, which, while I thought it'd be a bit longer, was still fine. My roommate is 5'9" and tried it on, and it hit above the knee but still wasn't too short. I'm chiming in on the chorus of reviewers to say: BUY IT OMG. For the price? WORTH IT." —Mary R

Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes XL–3X and 36 colors).

Promising review: "This dress makes me feel like the prairie goddess I have always aspired to be! I sized down on the dress (mostly cuz they were out of my size), and I am glad I did! Fits beautifully with enough slouch to keep the dress breezy but without swallowing me up. As other reviewers mentioned, it shows a fair amount of the boob area, but I had enough fabric to safety it shut for a more modest look. Stoked to wear this all summer!" —tesla406

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "This is a great dress! It is long enough that you wouldn't need to wear leggings with it if you didn't want to. The fabric is thick enough, so not too see-through, which is great! I am 5'7" and 150 lbs. and the medium fit me perfectly! If it is any indication of how well I liked it, I bought another one in a different color after receiving this one! It washed up perfectly, too! Looks like a new go-to dress with flip-flops, etc. One more note — the neckline and sleeves are nice, too. The neck fits a little closer so it isn't too wide, nice dress!" —TLSmile
