    Promising reviews:

    "I am always shy about buying dresses online. Will it be too short? Will it fit over my boobs? You ladies know the feeling, I'm sure. I LOVE this dress. So much so that I bought it in three colors. The yellow is a tad see through, so nude undergarments are a must. They can be dressed up or down. Perfect all-year-round. I plan on pairing leggings with them in the colder months and layering with sweaters." —owlgirl

    "I love this dress. Sleeves are fitted, but not tight. It hits right at my knees which makes it great for work. The fabric is really soft, but not too thin, it wasn't see-through at all. The weight of the fabric is nice for the Arizona summer heat, not too clingy or sweaty, but I think it will also be great for transitioning into winter. Went through the wash just fine, put it in the drier for a few minutes and air dried the rest. No pilling or threads coming out which is usually the tell-tale sign of a cheaply made garment. I will definitely be ordering at least one more. Overall I think this is a great buy, especially for the price." —Marlee

    So what do people love about it? Well, it's extremely breathable with just enough stretch to keep you comfortable throughout the entire day, no matter the weather.

    "I live in Philadelphia where the summers are VERY humid so I did a bunch of shopping on Amazon for simple COTTON dresses to wear all summer and this was my fave of all the ones I tried! It's cute without being fussy to wear in terms of modesty. Last summer I bought black, navy and grey and wore them a ton. This summer I decided to order a few more colors because I seriously wear them all the time! I don't have to think about an outfit either in terms of putting pieces together that I think look good OR what will be functionally appropriate for the activities and temperatures of the day. This dress is just so comfortable, cute and practical." —Liz Lare

    "This dress is a gorgeous, simple dress. It's hard to find a good, modest dress that's not either super long or super short. This dress is it!! Modest, simple, no frills, perfect knee-length dress. This can be worn casually or can be dressed up for church or a wedding with the simple addition of a cardigan, shrug, or scarf. Comes in gorgeous colors. And the price can't be beat! I will definitely be ordering more colors." —FragranceLover

    Plus, there are like, a million patterns and colors to choose from. We're talking solid colors, pineapples, flowers, tie-dye, and lemons.

    "A good basic dress for most occasions. This dress is great for work because the neckline isn't too low and my shoulders are covered. On me it falls a few inches below the knee. Easy to dress it up with a jacket and nice shoes. Easy to move in when you're lifting heavy files or rooting under your desk for a dropped cord. I will probably order another one." —G. Rangitsch

    Enough is enough, already. Get the dress from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in sizes XS–2X and in 45 colors and patterns) and get ready to look flawless.
