When it comes to summer dresses, some styles are great in theory but faulty in execution. Case in point: t-shirt dresses. Most t-shirt dresses we’ve seen are either too thin, too clingy, too short or too shapeless for actual human women. So we skip them. But wouldn’t it be nice to discover a t-shirt dress made of quality fabric, cut to flatter, with the right amount of coverage and swing…. and, oh, while we’re dreaming, how about some pockets?

Well guess what, friends. We have located just such a garment. All the above principles of intelligent design come to life in the Alaster T Shirt Dress. This piece is currently causing a frenzy among Amazon shoppers, thanks to its brilliant shape, easy wearability — and stunning price tag. On sale for $21, the Alaster T Shirt Dress is the one-and-done answer to what to wear in warm weather.

What makes this dress special? First, the fabric — a substantial, silky 95-percent-rayon blend that moves gracefully and feels wonderful against summer skin. One shopper, who dubbed he Alaster T-Shirt Dress her “new summer wardrobe staple,” says one fan. “I am always on the lookout for casual dresses to keep me cool…. I LOVE this dress…. It fits perfectly…. The fabric is so soft that it feels like wearing pajama….”

Second, this piece is designed for a fabulous fit. An inverted pleat in back gives it just the right drape, and keeps it from clinging. Amazon shoppers, like this one who titled her review “Roomy but flattering,” are thrilled with the shape: “ Love love this dress,” she continues. “I'm 5'4" 160 lbs and normal size is a L/Xl…. The L fits perfectly and has some room, but flattering room. It totally hides back fat (because of the pleat in back) and isn't too tight on my upper arms. Super, super cute, and I dig the pockets….”

“Great little tee-shirt dress!” says another five-star reviewer. “The material is sturdy, opaque, and soft (even more so after one wash/dry cycle). It’s tricky sometimes to find short dresses that aren’t too long on my 5’4” frame, but the hem on this one is a modest yet flattering length….”

There are so many great photos of customers in the Alaster T-Shirt Dress that provide real-life peeks at the piece.

And one more: “I'm 5'1", 185 lbs.…the 2X fits beautifully with no cling to ‘unsightly areas’ … The inverted pleat is wonderful to keep the dress from clinging in the back. Nice, flowy garment that is very comfortable and flattering to wear…”
