'Great length for people 65+': This flowy dress is on sale for as low as $22

'The ruching/waist treatment is VERY forgiving and hides tummy rolls nicely,' shared a happy shopper.

When the temperatures go up, a flowy dress is a summer savior. We love our billowing caftans and breezy maxis, but if you haven't tried a fit-and-flare dress yet, let us introduce you to one of the most flattering and freeing styles out there: the fit-and-flare dress. There are tons to choose from, but right now, you can get this flirty number from Ouges for as little as $22 at Amazon.

Feminine and flirty, this flattering frock is as comfortable as it is cute — and it comes with pockets. (Prices vary depending on size and color.)

Why is it a good deal? 💰

Now is the time to jump on this deal — it does go on sale occasionally, but according to our price trackers, this is the lowest price you'll see for this dress until the weather cools off. Elsewhere, a dress like this might cost you well over $100 — even at its regular price of $34, you're getting significant savings.

Why do I need this? 🧐

When you get to a certain age, cute dresses that are fitted aren't, shall we say, as flattering as we want them to be. But, if you're anything like me with (cough) a meno belly, that does not mean you have to resort to Mrs. Roper-style frocks with no waist and plenty of fabric to create a smoke-and-mirrors effect on your figure. A fitted waist that's high enough can give you back that figure you thought you'd lost. And that's what this dress does. The waist sits just at the rib cage so that everything below that is loose and comfortable while still looking adorable. The skirt hits just below the knees, moves with your body and flows with your curves. Thanks to the blend of polyester and spandex, the fabric has plenty of give and doesn't wrinkle. It even comes with pockets deep enough that you can carry your cell phone and no one will know.

What reviewers say 💬

While one shopper said it has a "great length for people 65+" 17,000 happy shoppers of all ages have plenty of other reasons for giving this dress five-star ratings.

Pros 👍

"Oh my goodness! This dress is so flattering for a curvy woman!" gushed a rave reviewer. "I absolutely loved the way it fit, and it is so comfortable. It can be worn casually or dressy depending on what shoes you wear. The fabric doesn’t wrinkle either. Love this new addition for summer!"

"This dress fits and flows like a dream," raved a five-star fan. "I got the bright pink one and when I tell you, you will see me strutting and looking cute I need you to believe me. The sizes are accurate and the pockets make it that much nicer. I've already bought a second one. I highly recommend this dress as it can be dressed up or down and it hugs you where you want it to."

"This dress is very becoming on full-figured women," wrote another enthusiastic shopper. "It is gathered at the waist and makes you look slimmer. I love the pattern and the material feels cool."

Cons 👎

Some shoppers say you might want to size up.

"Runs a size small," wrote one reviewer who bought two for a cruise. "They pack well and don’t wrinkle. I love the pockets ... I am 5’3” and 185 lbs. I normally purchase an XL. After reading the reviews I sized up to an XXL and am so glad that I did. The dresses are so pretty and super comfortable and priced right."

"It drapes nicely and falls well," shared a fashionista. "It IS flattering. And it is VERY comfortable. I did have to return my first one and size up because it fit slightly more snugly than I am personally comfortable with, but ... the ruching/waist treatment is VERY forgiving and hides tummy rolls nicely."

If you want to channel your inner Brooke Shields, this yellow is a summer showstopper.
