Looking to step up your at-home loungewear without breaking the bank? A comfortable and affordable maxi dress might be just the thing to switch things up, especially as we approach warmer weather.

Throw it on as a one-piece look that’s a step above track pants and hoodie, but with all the same comfort. If you need to head out for a quick trip to the grocery store, simply throw on a denim jacket, and you’ve got an easy outfit formula that you’ll want to wear on repeat.

One inexpensive dress has been winning over shoppers thanks to its timeless silhouette and comfortable fit.

What is it?

The Hao Mei Li Women's Maxi Casual Dress is an affordable pick that starts at just $19, and happens to be Amazon’s current best-selling style for women. Featuring a flattering scoop neckline, a gathered empire waist and pockets, it’s easy to see how it’s earned a 4 out of 5 star rating on more than 1,700 reviews. 

Available in sizes x-small to xx-large, it’s a versatile pick that comes in a wide range of colours and patterns. With both a short-sleeved and a long-sleeved version to choose from, shoppers have been raving about this casual dress.

What shoppers are saying

A perfect choice if you’re looking for comfort, this dress fits true to size and is ideal for a wide variety of occasions.

“My friend and I both got this dress to wear to Egypt. They're perfect,” one reviewer shared. “I got the medium and she got the small. Both fit pretty similarly and were long enough. They're super comfy. I love that they have pockets.”

“I bought a few of these dresses in several colours and I am in love,” added another. “The length is perfect- the dresses just graze the top of my feet. The material is very soft as well. Can be worn casually or dressed up with a belt for a more formal occasion.”

The only downside to this dress appears to be that the fabric for certain colours appears to be on the thinner side, particularly on the darker long-sleeved versions. 

“The fit was as expected. The fabric however was sheer, and not something one could wear functionally,” reads one review. “I love the fact that this dress has pockets, but if it is see through, it is of no use to me.”

“Love the soft material, don't like that the black dress is very flimsy and be sure and wear undergarments that you don't see through,” cautions another. 

The verdict

If you’re looking for a comfortable and affordable maxi dress, this one fits the bill. Shoppers have shared that it makes for a flattering silhouette on all body types, and that it even works well to wear throughout pregnancy. 

Based on the reviews, you may just want to steer clear of the long-sleeved versions to ensure that the dress you receive is the best quality possible.
