Why do I need this? 🤔

The dress is a blend of poly, cotton and spandex, so it's breathable, lightweight and a bit stretchy. It's cut to fall beautifully — it doesn't cling, but you're also not swimming in it. Side slits let you show a little leg and give you the option to tie up the hem for a different look. Pockets? You bet! What's not to love?

You can also style it for work with a blazer or a shacket and boots. The Anrabess Maxi Dress has been taking Amazon by storm, and how can it not? Just look at that drape and swing. It's graceful and slimming and covers the right parts while revealing just enough.

The range of options is mind-blowing. You can get this sleeveless style (in 38 colors) or try a short-sleeve option in 25 colors and prints. Both varieties are super-versatile. Belt it at the waist and slip on a pair of sandals. Throw a cardigan or jean jacket over it and pair it with trendy sneakers. It would even make a great coverup on beach days.

What reviewers say 💬

The dress has a serious five-star fan club, with a particularly vocal base of curvy and petite shoppers.

Pros 👍

"I bought this dress in my usual size," shared a five-star reviewer. "It is a looser fit, nice and flowy, which is what I was hoping for. I would recommend sizing down if you want something more form-fitting."

Another impressed customer shared: "Great for a trip down south. I threw it on for breakfast, easy on and easy off. Dress it up with a jacket, heels and a hat and bag. I bought a blue one and an olive green one. ... Washed well too; didn't fade or twist!!"

Shoppers also vouched for its multi-season adaptability. "I’ve already bought two more in different colors, and I’m not finished yet!" a fan raved. "The material is wonderful, and it’s so light. Perfect dress for summer and early fall."

“I’m a curvy girl and I didn’t expect this to be flattering,” said another happy customer. "I was wrong. It hugged my curves just right and is very comfortable plus, bonus — it has pockets!"

Cons 👎

One thing to note: while most shoppers shared how classy the dress looks belted, some pointed out that it might be a little tricky to make that happen. "This dress is the best!" shared a shopper. "My only wish is that the slits weren’t so high in the sides so I could wear a belt with it, but I absolutely love it! So comfortable and casual."

Does this red firework print scream "4th of July," or what? Ready to light up the night?
