Top review: “I love this dress, the material is easy wear, fits so well, everything is perfect even the length, it’s a summer dress but I’ve worn it on a cooler night with a chunky jumper and my dr marten boots, during the day I wore it with summer sandals. Very flattering and worth every penny.”

Top review: “Wore this for the first time today and I was with 6 friends. All admired the dress (and the price). One friend went online and bought a dress from the same company and at least one other will be buying one too! So a great success, in fact I may well buy another without sleeves this evening. The material is light and cool for hot weather and the dress is lose and easy to wear, plus it has pockets.”

This maxi dress features a fitted bodice and chic cut-out sections on the shoulders. Hidden elastic at the waist gives it a super flattering fit and it’s available in 20 different colours including this leopard print skirt design.
Top review: “LOVE this dress! It was true to size, very comfortable, lovely fabric and better than I anticipated. So much so, my daughter tried it on, ordered herself two different styles and another for me. I have washed and worn them several times and are my favourite ‘go to’ dresses. The advantage is you can dress up or dress down with pumps and cardi. Definitely recommend to anyone thinking of buying it. I may need another soon!”
Auselily sleeveless maxi dress, from £23.99, Amazon
This sleeveless maxi dress is another Amazon hit – with nearly 7k positive reviews. It’s available in 13 different colours, including this teal green version.
Top review: “I ordered this for the christening of two of my great-grandchildren. I have an all-over skin condition that makes my skin ultra sensitive so I needed something really soft. I washed it before I wore it and didn’t have to iron it (bonus). I was comfortable all day which is a rarity. I got several compliments on how classy I looked.”
Grecerelle shoulderless women’s maxi dress, from £18.69 / $28.99, Amazon

Top review: “Material is really soft, stretchy and good quality. It’s not see-through at all. I love the cold shoulder sleeve details and the side pockets are so cool. I normally have a hard time walking in maxi dresses that are straight fit, this maxi dress has a side slit on both sides which makes it so comfortable to move around.. you can dress it both up and down… Overall I am very pleased with this dress… super cute!”
