Huskary V Neck Spaghetti Strap Maxi Dress

"I now own 14 of these dresses in nearly all the colors!" wrote a very excited shopper. "The most flattering are the army green and white stripe for that 'lengthy look' and the army green solid. I get SOOOO many compliments on these, especially in the Florida Keys wearing the tropical-print ones. I'm down 20 [pounds] and they still look GREAT, and I don't need to knock down a size because the straps are adjustable and the tie at the waist just shows the curves."

YesNo Summer Maxi Dress

"Perfect dress for evening wear on a beach vacation," wrote a happy traveler. "The material is a decent quality for the price. A little thin, but if you size appropriately the volume of fabrics still keeps the skirting modest and there’s a little bit of a double layer over the chest. Wore it at the beach with flip flops and back home with a jean jacket and booties. Lots of compliments on the style and pattern in particular."

"Soooooo comfy!" wrote one summer shopper. "I was looking for a summer dress that would be comfortable enough to wear while working from home or running errands and nice enough to dress up boho summer jewelry and a nice pair of sandals, and this is it! I could even see this with a denim jacket and booties in the fall."

"I wanted a basic loose fitting maxi dress that didn’t show cleavage, and that I could dress up a bit....and I didn’t want to spend a lot of money," a savvy shopper noted. "This fits the bill for me. I don’t want to show off my tummy, and I don’t like my big arms. This is nice and loose.... I’d totally wear it around the house or to the store with a pair of sandals just by itself. But you can dress it up in so many ways!"

“This dress fits well in all the right places and does not cling,” one rave reviewer shared. “Super comfortable and, because it fits well, I feel good wearing this. I just paired it with some cute flats and a big chunky necklace, and I was ready for a day out. I like it enough that I may just buy another!”

Huskary Summer Maxi Dress

It is a joy to wear!” a happy shopper shared. “The dress obscures nearly everything below my chest as it hangs, which is what I wanted. It is loose around the waist and hips and is not see-through. I only wear a slip so it flows loosely around my middle.”

“Like any neurotic 40-something woman reluctant to part with her cash, I spend an inordinate amount of time reading reviews and decided on this one,” wrote a satisfied customer. “I know I will feel cute in this even if I’m feeling a little fat (you know what I mean, ladies).”

Auselily Short Sleeve Casual Maxi Dress with Pockets

"This dress is so incredibly soft and comfortable but also slimming and flattering," wrote a satisfied customer. "I have a very large chest (40DDD) and dresses tend to hang off the girls like a circus tent, but NOT this dress. It’s an empire waist, so it’s perfect for camouflaging the tummy while still fitting nicely up top."

$37 $53 at Amazon

Woosea Sleeveless Deep V Maxi

"This dress is very flattering to my curvy figure," wrote a rave reviewer. "It hugs in all the right places, and flows loosely to cover all those problem areas we middle-aged women so often have."

$31 $38 at Amazon

Halife Halter Maxi Dress

"This is the most perfect maxi dress I’ve ever worn," a pleased shopper shared. "Let me start by saying that I am pear-shaped — small bust, wide hips...I hate maxi dresses with pockets, because the pocket placement is always directly on my widest part, therefore making me look wider. This dress does NOT have pockets and lays just perfectly! It’s sexy, but not skintight. Flowy, but not baggy...It’s just perfect!"

"I've gotten SO many compliments wearing it at work today!" raved one reviewer. "It's a nice burning hot 86 degrees out so I decided to test it out for casual Friday, and I can't go anywhere in the office without people stopping me telling me how much they love it!"

"I don't like things to cling or show rolls or dimples, and this did not disappoint (smooth and hides belly just right)," shared a satisfied shopper. "I think the older I get, I look for comfort and convenience, but this is also cute and flattering. Plus, it has pockets."

$31 with coupon $42 at Amazon
