Best&Less shoppers go crazy for $40 summer dress: 'What a find'

After a super stylish frock that won't break the bank? Here it is.

It's not every day you come across a dress that is versatile, comfortable and looks super luxe for under $50. But this fashion unicorn actually exists at Best&Less and it's sending Aussie shoppers wild.

Gold Coast fashion stylist Cat Sanz shared the dress with her 106,000 Instagram followers, saying it was hard to believe the "perfect" summer frock is only $40. The Strappy Ring Detail Dress features a pretty light blue and yellow floral pattern with ring detail, a sweetheart neckline and a subtle cutout.

"I've found a dress that's only $40 but it looks way more expensive," Cat told her followers before modelling the maxi dress. "You guys ask all the time for summer dresses. This one is not going to break the bank and feels stylish."

Dozens of Cat's followers agreed, saying that Best&Less was full of hidden gems when it came to stylish summer looks. "If you didn't tell us it was from Best&Less no way you would be able to tell! Looks like a much higher price point! What a find!" one fan wrote. "Best&Less can be a dark horse for sure! Banger of a dress!" commented another.


It's got a lot going for it

But the budget price tag isn't the only reason Aussie shoppers are rushing to nab this glamorous little number - in fact, there's a lot more to it. First off, it's available in sizes 8 to 26 and features a couple of key design elements that make it flattering on pretty much everyone, including an elasticated backing, adjustable straps and a tiered skirt. It's also got the one thing every dress should have - pockets.

Sydney Model Jessica Graaf, who shares curvy fashion inspo on her Insta page also highlighted the dress. "I have a feeling this @bestandless dress is about to break the internet. Let me tell you, I RAN to get my hands on it!" she told her 14,500 followers. "Best&Less, no way. Checking it out tomorrow, it's so pretty," commented one shocked fan.
