What is it?

The user-loved FANCYINN shift dress is crafted from a no-stretch cotton blend material and features a soft cotton lining. It has feminine ruffled details on the sleeves and hem and, best of all, side pockets.

Available in a whopping 31 colours, Amazon shoppers can choose between the cute and summery short-sleeved shift dress or a long-sleeve version that's perfect for summer nights or cooler days. 

The dress is available in XS to XL; however, the seller recommends sizing up if you are curvier or have a larger chest.

What people are saying

With more than 5,400 global reviews, the FANCYINN shift dress has earned a solid average rating of four out of five stars. 

"Have you known true happiness?" asks one Amazon shopper. "I just had a baby and also just finished eating my body weight in food, and still this dress looks flattering on me.

"I love this dress [and am] getting more colours," writes another user. "Loose but pretty. [I was] worried it wasn't going to fit but fit like a dream. I'm on the heftier side and have a larger bra size, and it fits so good. Comfy and cute. I am 5'6," and so it is a little shorter but still cute and modest."

"I LOVE THIS DRESS SOOOOO MUCH. I can't explain the way I feel about this dress. Beautiful material, not thin or cheap, not see through, and it's lined with an underslip," says a third reviewer. "Has pockets, and it's so flattering and gorgeous in person. You have to buy it to appreciate its beauty. I normally wear medium to large, and I ordered a large. It's not tight on my bust area. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED."

However, a handful of shoppers noted that the fabric is different from what's pictured. "This dress is better quality than I was expecting from Amazon, but I will mention that the fabric isn't exactly like the photo," writes one user. "It's a bit thicker and stiffer and not as flowy as the photo implies."

"The fabric is stiff and not really nice and flowy," echos another shopper. "The dress overall seems on the big side, so maybe buy a size down."

"[It] fits like they said, but the material isn't the softest," writes a different user.

Verdict

For less than $40, FANCYINN's light and airy mini shift dress is an affordable summer find that many shoppers describe as "extremely flattering" and "an all-around great summer dress." However, Amazon shoppers should note the reviews before ordering to decide the best size for their body type.
