A long-sleeve swinging faux wrap dress available in so many great prints — but this charcoal and red floral print is my personal favorite.

Promising review: “Super impressed with this dress! I looked at it and read the reviews so many times before just buying it, and I am SO glad I did! I wore it for a night out with my husband and got a ton of compliments. I have an athletic build (broad shoulders/average chest) and while it was very low cut, it was comfortable and still classy looking. Even at my height, I didn’t feel like it was too short which can sometimes be an issue… bottom line, buy the dress!!! I’ll be ordering it in more colors!” —14AnnaM

Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes 4–22 and in 17 prints).

Promising review: “Buy this dress!!! It is gorgeous. I have lots of extra skin on my belly from weight loss, but the dress totally hid it! I did have to be careful not to flash my panties when I sat down, but I didn’t feel overly exposed otherwise. If you aren’t used to showing lots of leg, you may want to wear a mini-skirt or shorts. I got so many compliments on this dress, I wish there were more colors!” —Bradlee
