When you love that buttoned up look, but also hate buttoning up: presenting buttoned Sundress with pockets.


A 5-star review by Nicole reads: “I bought this when it was on sale but I love it. I’m 5’5″, 140lbs and got a medium and it fit perfectly. I love that it’s cotton and has pockets and is stretchy. The buttons are just for decoration which isn’t a con in my opinion. I like the crisscross back straps that are adjustable too. Exceeded expectations and I look forward to wearing it again!”

Striving for a casual look for a nice evening stroll on the beach? This dark, floral print rayon maxi dress would be the perfect choice.

A 5-star review by Kaytee reads: “I absolutely love this dress. I am keeping the black one with blue floral accents and the red one. Not see-through. Super comfortable, and I get lots of compliments. The only issue is length. I am fairly tall, but if I’m going upstairs, this dress tangles my feet, and I step in it. Definitely would be too long for short girls, but you could hem it. I think it is cute enough it would be worth paying for the hem.”

The waist is super adjustable.”

A 5-star review by an Amazon Customer reads: “Loved this dress — we wedding-crashed as surprise bridesmaids (well-received BTW!). Fit, material, and quality were awesome! Length was a bit different. I’m 5 feet even and it was a great length. My friend is 5’10” and it was too short — like hilariously inappropriately short. But, all in all, grateful for our purchase! Would buy — and wear — again!”

It’s not just a black, tie-dye maxi dress. It also got POCKETS! Sold in 32 others colors, too!

A 5-star review by Anne D. reads: “This is the easy-breezy simple dress I’ve been looking for! It’s super soft with some stretch, has pockets! And with the print of some tie-dye accent gives it some pizzazz so it’s not so plain. You can throw this on for anything. Dress it up with some boots or heels, keep it casual with flip flops or slides. Accessorize with a jean jacket, jewelry, or hats. Want more colors! I normally wear Larges in most of my clothes and got the same here, fits loose and flowy as expected.”

R. Vivimos flowy maxi summer dress for that dramatic swirly photoshoot!

A 5-star review by Emily Rowan reads: “Dress is amazing, soft material and so pretty. Always get so many compliments every time I wear it.

A basic but still stylish black maxi dress that secures the waist for that curve.


A 5-star review by Ariana reads: “This dress is so comfortable! The elastic in the middle doesn’t bother me and it is placed at the waist. A cute waist belt will add the perfect touch! Also, I’m 5’4″ and it hits just right at my feet (it’s not at the ankles like the picture shows). It doesn’t drag, which is always a problem I usually have ordering dresses.”

From the front, it looks like a basic minidress, from the back, an angel. Yes, yes it does comes in white and red colors.


A 5-star review by tluv reads: “I LOVE this dress! This is my new favorite dress!! I am 5’2″ and about 135lbs. I bought a size medium and it fits perfectly. It is not tight at all and the material feels great. I do not think the material is scratchy or cheap. I was worried buying a white dress because it might be see-through. But this dress really is not see-through. I love it!”
