4 surprisingly flattering summer dresses from Target

I did a random drive through the summer dress section at Target the other day and I was pleasantly surprised. There were a lot of flattering styles in many sizes, so I decided to snag a few and hit the dressing room. Here’s a quick recap of the results:

1. Universal Threads Printed Wrap Dress in Green

The perfect dress for anyone with curves, really. I loved the color and print of this, and would work great in the spring too. I wore a Large in this and I’d say it fit well and true to size. I didn’t see this in plus size in green, but they do have the same one in yellow! Linked it below.


2. Universal Threads Striped Shirt Dress in Navy Blue

These t-shirt summer dresses are hit and miss for me. What I really liked about this one was that it was longer in the back and went down to about middle of the back of my knee. Comes in a few other colors, and still really flattering for a horizontal striped dress. I wore a Large in this and it also comes in plus sizes!


3. A New Day Ruffle Sleeve Midi Dress

Consider this the most timeless and classic style, with a tie at the waist & pockets. I loved this lightweight dress and was sad to leave it behind, but it would be perfect for everyday wear. I am wearing a large. Sizing goes up to XXL.


4. Universal Threads Floral Baby doll Dress
This was the one I took home with me! Photos don’t do it justice. I loved the pattern & the ease of this dress, and the way it flowed just looked good for my figure. It also has a cute little ruffle hem and you know I am here for the ruffles. I will be wearing this to a wedding later this summer. It was just too cute to pass up! I wore this in a medium and I’d definitely recommend going one size smaller. It’s meant to be a little oversized, but the large was a little too big. Plus size inclusive!


Let me know which ones are your favorites! Insider tip, Target is doing a big summer sale this week on the 15th and 16th to compete with Amazon Prime Day. Check the website for more, as I bet these dresses will be on sale!
