Shoppers love this 'flattering and forgiving' t-shirt dress — and it's just $33

Reviewers say this 'perfect work or vacay' frock 'hides areas like the tummy pooch', thanks to its tie waist and comfy material.

Light and airy dresses are a great option for your summer wardrobe, especially if they manage to be extra comfortable, too. The problem is, "extra comfortable" in dresses usually equals a shapeless swath of fabric. Is it too much to ask to look and feel effortlessly gorgeous? Enter: the Merokeety Tie-Waist T-Shirt Dress, a casual t-shirt style dress that looks laid-back and cool, feels cozy and flatters just about any figure without cinching and sucking us in. It's down to just $33 (from $48) with double discounts, and you can snap one (or more!) up in a whopping 22 colors and patterns to punch up your seasonal style.

This flattering frock features a tie waist for an enhanced silhouette, comfy opaque cotton fabric and a breezy summer-ready cut.

Why is this a good deal? 💰

Looking good at a great price is worth its weight in gold, but this doubly-discounted dress will only set you back $33 — a sweet deal if ever we've seen one! With the additional 10% off on-page coupon, this piece is nearly as low as we've seen it marked down to since last summer, so if you're stocking your sunny season wardrobe, we suggest snatching up one (or two!) while it's on sale.

Why do I need this? 🤔

This cutie is the definition of comfy-casual-chic, with a flattering sheath design and tie-waist to create definition along the midsection. It's made of stretchy, soft cotton, which makes it feel like you're wearing your oversized sleep shirt out and about — but it looks a whole lot more stylish than if you were really running around town in your PJs. Even better, the material is completely opaque, so there's no need to worry about undergarments showing through. Personally, I like wearing a pair of slip shorts underneath my sundresses to help protect against thigh chafing ... but that doesn't mean I want the whole world seeing them!

The dress will also help create an hourglass figure, even if you're more of a pear, apple or other delicious fruit shape. The wide neckline and self-tie belt add visual interest, with the belt nipping in the waistline for the maximum flattering silhouette. Best of all, this fresh frock is supremely versatile: Wear it to work, wear it to the beach, wear it in the backyard — the world is your stylish oyster!

What reviewers say 💬

The Merokeety T-Shirt Dress has a wild number of fans on Amazon, with nearly 20,000 reviewers giving the piece a perfect five-star rating. Many customers highlight the frock's comfortable material, versatile style and flattering fit.

Pros 👍

One reviewer dubbed it the "perfect work or vacay dress," adding, "Took this on a cruise, and wear this to work, it’s so versatile. The material is super stretchy, soft and thicker so you can’t see through. Pockets are an added plus! Great value for the cost."

"This is a super cute casual dress," wrote another fan. "The tie helps accentuate your waistline while also covering any poof in the front. It can be paired with sneakers, loafers, sandals or even wedges. Oh, and it has pockets! What’s not to love?"

Many reviewers also love how the dress makes them look — and feel. "As a woman in her early 50s, I didn’t expect so many compliments. I felt very confident in the dress," praised one. Another shopper added, "I was hesitant about the belt because I have curves in my 50's in places that I didn't have in my 30's, LOL! ... I ordered a large and love the fit. I felt the dress to be very flattering and I actually felt very pretty in it! It also launders well, did not shrink at all or wrinkle in the dryer."

Oh, and if you're rocking a little extra love in the mid-section, this dress quite literally has you covered. "I’ve got a 'mom pooch' and this dress does a good job hiding it! Not super form-fitting — just enough to give you shape," said a writer. Another agreed: "This dress was very flattering and forgiving. It hugs you in all the right places and it also hides areas like the tummy pooch. Its a dress that isn't super heavy but isn't too light either. It's perfect!"

Cons 👎

Though some customers decided to size up from their usual after reading reviews, they were frustrated that in some cases this resulted in an oversized fit. "I bought a size larger because I thought I would need it, but honestly it felt a little baggy on me — and by the end of our picture session the dress looked to be stretched out on me along with the waist tie," shared one reviewer.

Another wearer also noted, "Size was off ... I really liked this dress a lot but I felt like it ran a little big. I ended up returning it, and I may repurchase the medium. The material was nice, and I really liked the length, it was just too loose to be flattering."

Snap up this dress in 22 different patterns and colors, in sizes small through x-large.
