With summer just a few short weeks away, you may already be planning your vacation (or staycation!) wardrobe. Breezy fabrics and effortless styles are always high on my list of warm weather fashion finds, as are versatile pieces that can be worn for multiple different occasions.

Nothing screams summer like a printed maxi dress, and one affordable version is a hit among Amazon Canada shoppers.

What is it?

As the current best-seller Women's Evening & Formal Dresses, the Ancapelion Women’s Maxi Dress is a solid choice if you’re looking for an easy, breezy warm weather dress.

Starting at $29, this deceptively simple, yet totally versatile, dress has you covered for any occasion this season. Available to shop in both solid and printed versions, this maxi length dress has a strapless neckline and a ruched bodice that makes for an eye-catching design.

Unlike other maxi dresses that can sometimes leave you feeling shapeless, the Ancapelion Women’s Maxi Dress has a defined waist that highlights your shape. It’s easy to dress up or down with a pair of heels or your go-to jean jacket, making this one summer dress that can take you from day to night with ease. And the final must-have detail worth noting? It has pockets!

What shoppers are saying

This affordable summer dress has earned rave reviews from hundreds of customers, as many Amazon shoppers have fallen for its comfortable fit and high quality finish.

“I was really surprised (for the price) at the quality of the material. It is thick enough that you cannot see through it yet, not too thick that it is hot. Love the side pockets! Price is great. Falls to my ankle at the perfect length - (I'm 5' 51/2"). Material is so soft and comfy,” reads one five-star review.

“I have never been able to find a maxi dress I liked that actually came with pockets without making the hip area of the dress unflattering and bulky. This dress succeeds,” reads another. “Love the pockets and bought this dress in two colours. It is true to size. Soft material as well. Definitely would recommend.”

Some shoppers were less than impressed with the fit of this dress, which appears to run slightly small and may be better suited to those with a petite frame.

“Good quality and bright colours like shown in the picture. Only thing is it’s a little short. Would have liked it to be a bit longer,” noted one reviewer.


As a petite person who stands at 5’3”, I’m all too familiar with the challenges that come with finding clothes that aren’t too long. Based on the many reviews, it appears that the Ancapelion Women’s Maxi Dress fits the bill as a comfortable option that works well for shorter silhouettes.

If you’re willing to give this dress a shot and are on the taller side, we’d recommend sizing up in order to get the best fit.
