  1. Great article and very timely for me as my son is getting married tomorrow. I loooove the first dress. I really like the back, the color, the length, and the price is right. What a fun and informative post.

    1. Wow! Congratulations! You must be super excited!
      And I’m glad you you enjoyed the post. Thanks for stopping by even with preparing for your big day tomorrow!

  2. I never knew dresses so beautiful can be found at such a low cost.I am so amazed at the Floral Lace Cap Sleeve Maxi Dress which is below $50… This is normally a very expensive dress for women. I am speaking with experience since I am a ballroom dancer, so this cut is normal very important.
    Every woman should read this article and take a pick because you have such a great eye for amazing dresses which are also very cost-effective. Great post 🙂

    1. Thank you Thabo! Being a ballroom dancer must be exciting! And I agree. I’ve seen those dresses you mentioned and their prices. So it’s always great when I find alternatives with great quality too but at a cheaper cost.

  3. I absolutely love these options! My mom is a plus size lady and she is always saying how there are no clothes that cater to larger women to help then accentuate their sexy features.
    I especially love the swing midi dress!

    1. I know what she means. Sometimes it could feel like one needs to look further and harder to find plus clothes that fit right. But the good thing is there are more and more options available.
      I’m glad you saw something you liked. Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I really love that each dress is so different from the other ones, yet each elegant in their own way. These are classy options for a wedding, with such amazing prices.

  5. Wow, these are gorgeous dresses and super affordable. Is there a catch? I love the blue vintage swing midi dress. It is beautiful, and classy, and hugs in the right areas. I love the accessories you paired it with too. I’m not a fan of the three-quarter sleeved knotted maxi. It kind of just drapes the body and doesn’t give much shape or look that sexy.

    1. Glad you liked the outfit idea with the blue dress. As for the black dress…well it’s black first of all lol, which is uncommon for a wedding guest, but has definitely been done in weddings. That’s a part of why it’s on the list. And all the dresses will fit differently depending on one’s body type or shape. I wanted to have options for all shapes and possible individual preferences. But I’m glad you shared your thoughts 🙂 And thanks for stopping by!

  6. I really love the design of the Floral Lace Cap Sleeve Maxi Dress. The colour and shape is just perfect. But then again i am a sucker for the colour red 🙂 I found the price to be pretty decent as well. I actually really enjoyed the various dresses you wrote about.
