Accentuate the positive

The adorable Misfay cover-up adds coverage only where you most want it, still allowing you to show some skin and enjoy that blissful ocean breeze. Readers love how it skims areas that they are self-conscious about.

One five-star reviewer said, "I was very worried this wouldn't fit.... I have a paunchy tummy since giving birth and these types of dresses are really hit-or-miss.... I threw this on and was immediately in love with it. It's soft, it clings to my bust...and completely hides my paunch while showing off my hips.... There's no panty line and the pockets don't add bulk to the thighs (yes there are roomy pockets!!)."

Another grateful customer exclaimed that the Misfay is the "perfect summer dress. I love this dress!! It’s sooo comfortable! I’m 5’3 and 150. It hides everything I want it to and get doesn’t make me feel like I’m wearing a potato sack. The material is soft and not too thin or cheap. Falls a couple inches above the knee (perfect length). The pockets are a plus cause I can keep my phone and keys on me..."

Cool comfort

When it's hot out, a light, an airy garment is everything. This soft swing dress keeps wearers feeling sweet in the heat.

"It was 110 degrees today and wore this dress to a birthday dinner," raved a happy shopper. "It was cool and comfortable. The material is soft and stretchy. I will be ordering a few more in different patterns. Oh, I love the pockets!!! If you are on the fence about this dress — go for it! I am absolutely happy that I did."

Another added: "Very comfortable! Very lightweight. I have bought four others just like it!... It's very hot in the summer, so they keep me cool, and my husband appreciates the sexiness of them."

So many choices!

The superfun Misfay dress comes in an array of colors and unique patterns — 36 in all. Whether you prefer pastels, brights, florals, mandalas, animal prints, stripes or tie-dyes, there is certain to be one (or likely many) that's especially right for you. Sizes range from XS to 3X. 

One hooked shopper said she couldn't stop at just one: "I originally ordered this dress in purple-gray, and loved it so much, I had to order the blue one, too. I’m actually hoping to catch more...as they are the perfect staple for any wardrobe. They are soft and flowy, fit true to size (ordered size small, my usual size at 5’3”, 140 lbs.), and come in great colors — both neutrals and nice, muted colors. I hate when basics are too brightly colored; I prefer paler shades of blues and purples, as well as classic black and white. The pockets are deep, can hold a smartphone and keys easily, and hang nicely against the sides, as in, they don’t bulge out and look awkward like some pockets on dresses do. The dresses fall to just above my knees, which is great, as I was afraid they may be too long on my shorter frame.... I will definitely order more of these when I have the chance!"

Sounds like maybe we won't even need a suitcase for our next vacay. This one-and-done coverup dress has it covered. Get yours while it's on sale.
