Anrabess Split Maxi Sundress


We love this ultra-casual tank dress for its eye-catching prints and comfy fit. Patterns like palms and tie-dye scream “vacation,” while floral and polkadot designs are perfect for brunches and bridal showers. The dress hits the ankles but features subtle slits on each side, making it modest yet fun. Sewn with a fabric blend of polyester, rayon, and spandex, this dress expertly wicks moisture and stands up to wrinkles. One shopper calls the dress “extremely flattering…almost a fit and flare,” and shares that they’re “ordering a second [one]!”

Prettygarden V-neck Wrap Dress


There’s nothing like a versatile wrap dress to wear everywhere with ease. This pick from Prettygarden is not only incredibly flattering on all body types, but it’s also available in 41 styles ranging from solid pinks and blues to striking florals in pretty much every color you could ask for. Each dress features a V-neck, flared sleeves, and a tie waist (some styles even boast a side slit). One impressed reviewer revealed they’re “pleasantly surprised” by the dress, writing it’s “feminine, flowy, and most importantly — it fits!” The dress is made of 100 percent polyester, which means you can stuff this dress into a suitcase without worrying about wrinkles. Just keep in mind that although it’s listed as a maxi dress, it’ll actually fit more like a midi dress on most shoppers.
