There is definitely no shortage of great maxi dresses out there. But finding one that is flattering, elegant and affordable? Basically impossible. That’s why we were so excited to learn about this dress that Amazon shoppers enjoy – and it happens to be listed at the very tempting $ 35.
Anrabess Casual Sundress has stormed Amazon and how not to do it? Just look at this drape and shake. It is cute and slimming and covers the right points while revealing a lot. (Oh, and if the name sounds familiar, there’s a reason for it: It’s the same brand as Amazon’s famous sweatshirt.)
Under $ 47 to just $ 35, it’s a complete steal. Of course, you can save even more if you are a member of Amazon Prime. Not yet registered? No problem. You can get the free 30 day trial here.

The dress is a mixture of poly, cotton and spandex, so it is breathable, light and slightly elastic. It is cut to fall nicely – it does not stick but you do not swim inside it. The side slits allow you to show a small foot and give you the option to tie the hem for a different look. Pockets? Yes Sir!
The range of options is impressive. You can get this dress in 30 colors and prints and in short, long and sleeveless style. In any style, it is extremely versatile. Live it in the middle and wear a pair of sandals. Throw on a cardigan or leather jacket and combine it with low t-shirts. It also does an excellent coverage on the beach.
The dress has a serious five-star fan club (over 6,200 people), with a particularly vocal base of curves and petite shoppers.
“This dress fits perfectly and I do not regret buying it,” said a 62-year-old critic. “… It is nice and spacious without looking wide or boxy. It hugs my curves slightly without sticking. It is soft and fluid and the length hits me at the top of my legs, so I can wear heels or flats without “Side pockets that rest on my hips without digging, so you do not know they are there … I highly recommend, especially for us short ladies who usually can not find a maxi dress without having to change the length.”
Curvy shoppers are also thrilled with the flattering fit: “This dress is narrower at the top, but loose enough at the waist to not notice my belly!” shares one. “… The material is like a soft t-shirt. The cut of the bottom makes it one step higher than a basic t-shirt dress.”
Another adds: “I have a lot of fat in my belly and wide hips, and that, in black, made me look so thinner. The fabric is breathable. The side slits reach up to my knee and the rounded edge helps it not look too basic. … I’m also insecure about the fat in my hand and I got the short sleeve version [sleeves are] enough to hide my insecurities but not too much to look weird. Highly recommended…!”
Another fan says: “… This is a GREAT dress for summer. The fabric is perfect, not too thin (so you can not see it) and not too thick (that it is very hot) and I like the pockets! … I have a pear-shaped body and it is nice and relaxed around my hips! I would highly recommend this dress !!! “
