Promising review: "LOVE! The colors are vibrant and light enough to be cool during the summer and heavy enough to where it doesn't feel cheap. I love the slit it has in the side because it gives it a different look. I am 5'9 and it is right above my knees. For the price I am shocked as to how beautiful they are. I agree with everyone else to buy a size up. The length will not change but can be a bit tighter in the shoulder area." —Andrea

Promising review: "I saw this top on someone and scoured the internet until I found it on Amazon! Love the sleeves, and I like that it’s not too loose and not too fitted. It is a tad on the long side so I will probably wear it tucked. Looks cute with shorts or jeans and statement earrings." —anchor12

And a suuuper similar style tee in sizes 1X–5X for $25.99.
Promising review: "This dress is like a soft T-shirt, and the colors on the blue and white tie-dye were beautiful and vibrant. A bit more blue than pictured, which is good, and consistent with other reviews. The sleeves were nice and stretchy and weren’t too tight at all around the opening. It honestly feels as comfy as a nightgown. I can’t wait to wear it more, I tried it on and it was so comfy I left it on to run errands! It’s great with flat sandals, and I just ordered another color bc I love it so much. Say hello to my new summer uniform!" —Lauren L.
Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and in 22 colors/prints).
Promising review: "This top is SO cute! It fits well and is a really lovely fabric that feels much more expensive than it is. I have a large bust, and although the fabric doesn’t have much give, it doesn’t feel too tight. The bell sleeves are fashionable and the price point can’t be beat! I highly recommend." —Caitlin Brewer
Get it from Amazon for $28.99 (available in sizes S—3X and in 41 colors).
Promising reviews: "This romper is so beautiful and classy! It is not see-through. It is lined. The buttons are functional (nursing friendly)." —Lauren Fuquay
"I love this romper! It's so easy to slip on and look 'dressed up' with wedges or wear casually with flip-flops. It's made of really soft material that breathes so you don't die of sweat in the summer. I love the wrap-around tie belt so you can adjust how tight it is. It's plenty long in the crotch area as well so I'm not bunched up. Thinking this is the perfect outfit for Thanksgiving in Arizona. Buying in more colors. I sure do love when I find a brand/seller that works! Online shopping can always be a pain but not with this one!" —SmithHaus
Get it from Amazon for $36.59 (available in sizes S–XXL and in 17 colors).

Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes XS—XXL and in 28 colors).
Get it from Pretty Little Thing for $28.80 (originally $48; available in sizes L—5X and in three colors).
Promising review: "I have washed and worn this top several times since purchasing. I usually dry it on low heat, and the fabric and lace has held up well. It is wrinkle free from the dryer. The fabric is not see-through and has a nice sheen. It is versatile: tuck it in, wear it loose, or wear it untucked with a belt. The lace lays nice and flat...The V-neck is [nice], but not too low cut. The top looks great with jeans, dressy pants, a skirt or shorts. It goes with everything and has quickly become one of my go-to pieces. It has a minimal classic style." —BT
Get it from Amazon for $17.25+ (available in sizes XS–5X and in 22 colors).
Promising review: "[This dress is] like wearing pajamas out and about, yet looking very EFFORTLESSLY put together. I bought one in blush, grey, blue AND green. I love this dress. Accentuate your CURVES with this dress. I cannot stress it more. It has a modest neckline and shows JUST enough leg. You can tie the belt waist as tightly as you want to show off your waist. Tie it loose after a buffet. Tie it tight when you're feeling fabulous. It's fantastic. I really bought this in as many colors as I could." —Amy
Get it from Amazon for $37.99 (available in sizes S–XL and 24 colors).

Promising review: "Can I tell you how much I HATE wearing an undershirt on a hot day?! It’s so frustrating to look to look for shirts in the store and have them all be translucent, too tight, too baggy, or have words on them. I saw these and figured I could send them back if I hated them. Well, I LOVE THEM. They are soft, they aren’t see through, and they fit amazingly well. I get complimented on them every time I wear them. Can’t beat the price either. I can even wear the white ones without an undershirt. I have several colors and will buy more." —KH
Get a pack of two from Amazon for $10.95+ (available in sizes XS—XXL and in 29 color combos).
Promising review: "I love this top! It's perfect by its self or under a shirt. I ordered a medium! It fits snugly, just the right amount to feel secure without a bra. I was concerned about the straps since they are not adjustable but they are a sturdy material and have some stretch to them. I’m definitely going to order this in more colors!" —Mama Mia
Get it from Amazon for $17.99 (available in sizes XS—XL and 17 colors).
Promising review: "These are the perfect summer staple and are a decent quality! The denim is a bit thinner but that will be nice when it's 100+ degrees in the summer. I ordered an XL and it fits just like I want it to. Really excited to wear these!" —Georgia Berning
