Clothing you recommended including more maxi and t-shirt dresses for summer

In our last affiliate post on dresses and skirts I asked for clothing recommendations. You guys love t-shirt dresses and maxi dresses! I am in shopping mode now that the weather is warmer. Also, as I always say on these posts, visit your local thrift and consignment shops! It is such a thrill to score things for cheap. Last week I found a DVF wrap dress in my size, with tags, at Goodwill. It was a bit tight as DVF runs small but it was close to the holy grail of Goodwill finds. I guess I could always find couture in my size or a Tiffany lamp or something, but I’m still so excited about that dress. Please brag about your thrift store finds and also let me know if you’ve bought anything off Amazon you love and recommend. It can be any product, it doesn’t have to just be clothes. I got the trunk organizer we talked about last week along with the car seat fan. The trunk organizer works so well I really like it. I’ll have to see how the fan works once it warms up, but it’s just what I need. I’m hoping it will be perfect for summer.

A casual dress with pockets you’ll live in this summer
This dress comes in 18 different colors and prints and in sizes x-small to x-large. This is recommended by reader LP! Reviewers say it’s true to size, that the fabric is “super soft and stretchy” and call it “cute and comfortable.” Many women love how you can dress it up or down and have already ordered it in another color.

A v-neck maxi dress you’ll want to wear all day
Reader feralchild recommended this awesome short sleeve maxi dress. This has over 1,400 reviews and a 4 star rating. It comes in sizes x-small to x-large and in 14 solid color and 2 stripe options. Women rave about how comfortable it is and say they adore the pockets, that the material is “soft and luxurious” and that it’s a “nice loungey dress.” Some women say to order a size smaller than you usually take. It’s also so affordable at less than $25. Here’s a link to a similar dress which comes in more colors and prints and also has great reviews!

A short sleeve maxi dress with pockets
This maxi dress comes in 29 different prints and colors, some with long sleeves, and is in sizes 14W to 26W. It’s got a 4.5 star rating and over 1,100 reviews! This dress is said to be true to size and to fit well. It’s lightweight with good fabric, and said to be “flattering for larger busted gals and modest.” Many reviewers have bought it in multiple colors and one woman calls it “the most comfortable maxi dress I have ever owned.”

A racerback maxi dress with pleats
Reader Becks1 loves this racerback maxi dress and writes that it’s really comfortable, that the pleats are flattering and that it has pockets. She does say that the “downside is that you can’t wear a regular bra with it.” This comes in 31 colors and prints with some gorgeous florals and in sizes x-small to xx-large. There are versions with sleeves and without. It has a 4.3 star rating and almost 3,000 reviews! Plus it’s only $17. Reviewers rave about this dress, saying that it gets compliments, fits great and is “perfect,” “a tall girls dream.”

A gathered t-shirt dress that’s casual and comfortable
I think I found the dress I’m going to buy, but I’m partial to gray. This gathered t-shirt dress by popular brand Daily/Ritual comes in xx-small to xx-large and in black, navy and gray. Reviewers call it an “awesome buy,” that’s “versatile,” “comfy and flattering” and a “great little casual dress.”

A vintage look feminine polka dot dress
This cute little polka dot button-up dress is another recommendation from Becks! It comes in 7 colors and sizes small to x-large. Plus it has a 4 star rating and 430 reviews. Women call it “comfortable and cute,” say it “fits beautifully” and the “fabric is light and comfortable.” Some women with larger busts say it can run tight though.

A wrap dress that’s so comfortable and classy
I love wrap dresses! This wrap dress comes in sizes 1x to 3x and in 3 solid colors and 3 prints, including the gorgeous polka dot version above. Women say this “fits well and is classy,” that it looks great on, and that it’s “very comfortable, perfect for work.” Here’s a link to another plus-sized wrap dress in more colors! (That’s the dress at the top of this post.)

A graphic print midi dress that will turn heads
Look at all the incredible bold prints in this dress! It looks designer but it’s under $35. Women call this dress “absolutely gorgeous,” say they “love the design” and “get compliments” when they wear it and that it’s a “beautiful dress” that “looks just like the picture.” This comes in sizes 2 to 14.

    Girl, if you dont stop with the wrap dresses! They are so cute! I love the one at the top and im going to Paris in 2 weeks (finally!!!) And was looking for a wrap dress because im plus size and curvy so this is timely. I do not however like the maxis. I feel like plus size maxis is where a designers imagination go to die. They look like sack clothes. I really dont like them. Being plus size doesnt mean our clothes should not be fashionable and a maxi doesnt have to be ugly, ugh. Anyway, my thoughts. I like the “audrey hepburn dress” on amazon. If you just search for that youll see it. Im ordering one, for Paris.

      This is my favorite travel summer dress! The wrinkles come out quickly when hung in the bathroom while showering, it’s cool, loose and figure flattering! Traleubie Women’s Casual Summer Tank Sleeveless Knee Length Vest Pleated Sun Dresses Navy Blue S Pair it with some Jack Rogers sandals (I personally get knock offs) and you are good to go!!

        Diana- Love that dress. I wish it came in petite or xs.

      • Diana says:

        @sommelierlady- I am just under 5’1” and the length is perfect for me! Not too long! If you are tiny the small might be loose but if your chest is fuller it might be an ok fit. I am a size 2 or 4 normally and hate when my clothes are too tight. This fits me great. Pair with with a cropped cardigan and some sling backs and I can wear it into the office during the summer. Try it in a small and then return if it’s too big! It even washes well (just don’t put it in the dryer).

    • MaryContrary says:

      I also think maxi dresses are cute if you’re tall-if you’re not, you look kind of like you’re drowning in fabric.

      • Liz version 700 says:

        Agreed, I love several of the above dresses so much. But as I”m 5’2 I have to agree the designers often seem to design maxi dresses for short people that look like they could double as a camping trip tent.

      • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

        Depends. I just found 4 *really* cute maxis (with pockets!) t Target, and 2 at Nordstrom Rack. I just wanted some throw on dresses to run around in during the warmer months, and to NOT spend a lot on running around clothes. All were UNDER $30. Check out the websites. 😊

    I am loving your curvy models. They have a lot more personality than the skinnies and are just so damn pretty.

  3. LP says:

    I’m famous!!! 😂 For real, the first dress is great- it comes sleeveless as well as short sleeved, has really generous pockets, and isn’t see through at all- BUT if you’re tall it might be a teeny bit shorter that you’d like. I’m 5’3” and wear a 16/18, and the xlarge comes to my knees. Caveat emptor!

    • ab says:

      great recommendation! I have a version of this dress in gray with white polka dots that I got on a lightning deal. it’s really comfortable and flattering.

  4. icecold says:

    As a 6ft, 5month prego, I highly, HIGHLY recommend the short sleeve maxi that feralchild sent in 🙌 now if only I could find a bra to keep my new huge boobs separate instead of squished together, I could prego in peace.

    Alas, in Colorado I woke up to snow this morning anyway so I have a little while longer to make this my full time wardrobe.

    The vintage polka dot dress is adorable!

  6. Becks1 says:

    I clearly have an Amazon problem, ha. But for cheap dresses that are shipped quickly – its so easy.

    I am wearing the belted dress from the other post today (the short sleeve one with a belt) and it is super comfortable and cute.

    Anyone have a cute summer dress that has a bit more upper arm coverage?
    Why are the sleeves so tiny on dresses? My chubby upper arms want to be comfy and not on display. TIA.
