Shopping doesn’t get any easier than Amazon!

A few of us here at Hip2Save tried some of the most popular, highly-rated summer dresses on Amazon starting at just $16.99! Sometimes you don’t know what you’ll end up getting when ordering on Amazon so we’re here to share the results of these trending outfits.


1. Jami’s pencil dress.

This highly rated short-sleeve pencil dress with a belt from Amazon screams elegance and beauty! Not only does it look very similar to this Pazienza Mini Dress from Anthropologie priced at $98, but it’s much more affordable, with prices starting at only $20.99! 🙌🏻 Plus, not only does it look amazing on Jami but it’s totally flattering on all body types!

And, thanks to the cotton/polyester/spandex blend, this fitted short-sleeve pencil dress with a belt creates stunning curves without being uncomfortable. Plus, the short batwing sleeves will keep you cool on a hot summer day.

Here’s what Jami had to say about her pencil dress:

“What I love most about this dress is its classic style and versatility. It can easily be dressed up with a pair of heels for business attire, donned with a summery hat and flip flops for the beach, or paired with sneakers and a jean jacket for a comfy casual vibe. And I love that it even has pockets – it’s the perfect dress!”

*Jami is 5’6″ and wearing a size XS, which she says is true to size for her.

Even Lina’s adorable SIL is loving rockin’ this striped pencil dress and has nothing but positive things to say about it!

Here’s what Cory had to say about her pencil dress:

“I love this dress so much it’s super comfy and I can wear it to work or church and love the fit!” – Cory


2. Erica’s tunic swing dress

This Amazon spring dress is the cutest staple piece and a perfect addition to your wardrobe! Not only is it super flowy and flattering but it even comes in a tank, short sleeve, or long sleeve to accommodate every spring season! Plus, there’s a whopping 29 different styles, colors, and even some patterns to choose from!

Here’s what Erica had to say about her swing dress:

“This dress is so perfect! I live in Florida and spring is pretty much summer! I love that this dress is lightweight (but not see-through by any means). It’s very comfortable and flowy!

I chose the burnt orange color as I thought it would be cute to wear around for most of the year here! You can dress it down with flip flops, dress it up with heels, and even toss some cute low cut boots in the mix once fall starts to approach again! I love the versatility of this dress!”

*Erica is 5’3″ and wearing a size small, which she says is true to size for her.


3. Saylor’s swing dress

This cute swing dress is so inexpensive and perfect for spring or summer! Plus, it comes in 22 beautiful colors and patterns, so you’re sure to find something that fits your style! I love how Saylor (Bryn’s daughter) paired hers with a cute jean jacket to give it a more casual look for running around town on the weekend.

Here’s what she had to say about her Amazon dress:

“I really like how comfortable and soft this dress is and that it can easily be dressed up or down by adding a jacket or sweater and different pieces of jewelry. My only complaint is that it is a bit modest for my taste – I am 17 and I typically wear dresses that have thinner shoulder straps and dip down a bit more in the front and/or back (but my mom says she likes it just the way it is!) 😉

*Saylor is 5’8″ and wearing a size small, which she says is true to size for her. 

Tip: Pair your Amazon dress with these shoes:

Saylor wore her dress with the perfect pair of espadrilles from Madden Girl. And she says they’re so comfortable on her feet. I totally need a pair for myself now! 😍 Even better, they’re currently on sale!


4. Erica’s t-shirt dress

A t-shirt dress is basically every woman’s best friend since it’s such a flattering fit. The cut of this dress is flattering on any shape or size! It also comes in 16 different colors and patterns and um…hello!… It has pockets! Total wardrobe win in my book! 😍

I really love this green color Erica chose for her dress. It looks great with her black heels and could also go perfectly with this identical brown version one of our readers found at Walmart. Adding some gold accent jewelry to dress it up would just complement this color so perfectly, too!

Here’s what Erica had to say about her Amazon dress:

“This dress is FUN!! I really like it a lot – you can totally dress it down and wear it as a beach/pool cover-up with flip flops, or dress it up with heels and a nice necklace! I love that it is super flowy! I actually really like the green color, too. I almost always order black dresses because I love back apparel, but I made myself try a different color I wouldn’t typically order, and I’m a huge fan!”

*Erica is 5’3″ and wearing a size Small, which is true to size for her. 


5. Sara and Lina’s black maxi dress

Hello most comfy, easy-to-throw-on dress ever! Take it on vacation, throw it on for a summer BBQ with friends, wear it to the pool – this dress is extremely versatile! It can be dressed up, knotted at the bottom to make it fun, or dressed down for a more casual, every day look – and you might actually find yourself wearing it every day. 😉

Lina also wore this black dress from Amazon, and I have all the heart eyes for how she styles her whole outfit! 😍 She’s ready to go with her super comfy black sandals, matching black frames, casual vest – and she pulled it all together with a stunning white statement necklace!

Here’s what we had to say about this Amazon dress:

“I love this dress! I’m very simple when it comes to the clothes I buy. I try to invest in staple pieces that can be worn in many different ways and go with almost anything. This dress was so inexpensive, and I was totally impressed by the quality. Plus, it’s extremely versatile! I would easily spend twice as much if I had tried it on in a department store!”  – Sara

*Sara is 5’4″ and wearing a size XS which is true to size for her.


“I love this dress! It feels like super soft cotton and is so comfy with the pockets! For a more dressed up look, I love to layer it with vests, necklaces, and cardigans; and it’s also perfect just with flip flops for the pool. It doesn’t get more versatile than that! And I’ve been wearing it for the last year constantly, and I’m so happy to say it washes very well!”Lina

*Lina is 5’3″ and wearing a size XL which is true to size for her.

Tiffany picked the perfect deep blue color for fall and is definitely inspiring us all with her fun fall accessories.

Here’s what Tiffany had to say about her Amazon dress:

“This dress is perfect for warmer climates! Living in Arizona, I need something lightweight and flowy as I transition my wardrobe to fall.

This dress just totally makes me feel put together even though I’m really just a hot mess, mom-of-three running out the door! 😂 It’s true to size and super comfy! Don’t just get one, get two!”

    I would love to see a thread for people modeling bigger sizes. With dressing rooms closed, it is so hard to pick things and I feel like models are always so thin that anything looks good on them. I’ve had 3 babies in 4 years so struggling to slim down but in the mean time I’d like to look cute without looking like a house in some of the popular styles. I love seeing the close on people sizes 12-18 to see more what it might look like in real life. I know you included a couple of xl here and that’s awesome but I’d love to see more!

    • Ashley

      Hi Emily! I used to wear a 6, but I’ve struggled with maintaining my weight as I’ve gotten older & now I’m a solid 14, sometimes 16 in some things. I’m a HUGE fan of this Target dress (I got it online) & you can search:
      Women’s Sleeveless Tank Dress – Universal Thread to find it. I bought it in three colors because I love it so much. It’s drapes over your body without clinging and washes nicely without looking tattered.. I say this knowing I have worn it pretty much every day this summer and have washed and dried all of them (i got the olive, blue and pink colors) several times and they still look good as new. The fabric feels high end, but the price is unreal! I got them on sale for about $10 each. Good luck!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for your feedback and request, Emily! I have passed this along to the team!

    I appreciate that you did this post. It is good to see different styles. I think the Amazon prices are high for tee shirt type dresses. To be honest very similar or the same dresses are at Target and Walmart for much less. The average dresses there are $9.99-$14.99

  3. Karen

    These are cute, but I’m not going to bother trying any. I’ve given up on ordering any clothes off Amazon. The sizes aren’t the same even between different colors of the same dress or shirt. It is such hassle for me to return anything because of where I live. It is still taking almost two weeks for my two day shipping on regular items from them. When my membership expires in September, I won’t be renewing it.

    • Irene (Hip Sidekick)

      I’m sorry to hear this, Karen. We are having so much fun seeing readers’ feedback on posts featuring Amazon clothing. Keep watching Hip2Save, you never know what other options we may come up with someday! Thank you!

  4. Candace

    #1 did not look good on me at all. I’m a 14/16 and I’m not sure if it was my proportions or what. Those pleats in the front did no favors on my tummy and it just made me look wider.

    • Irene (Hip Sidekick)

      That’s awesome that you tried it, Candace. Sorry it didn’t work out. Maybe next time!

    • Becks

      As someone of the same size: I stay far away from horizontal stripes!

      • Candace

        I actually did a solid color (the red). Something about the fit just didn’t work but it looks cute in all the review pics.

  5. Brea

    Are there any cute dresses that are more fitted in the waist? I have more of an hourglass shape and if I wear something that’s straight and/or baggy in the middle, I look like a potato sack.

    • Irene (Hip Sidekick)

      Thank you for asking, Brea! Here’s a link to more Amazon dresses for summer with a fitted waist. https://amzn.to/3hp7sAR. Good luck and hope you find what you’re looking for!

  6. Angie M.

    These are all so cute! Can’t wait to try them out. Thank you 🙂

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re welcome! Hope you love them!
