What if there were one easy dress that you could wear for an entire beach trip? You throw it over a swimsuit for morning beach play, wear it shopping on the boardwalk and add your favorite necklace and gladiators for sunset cocktails and dancing at a rooftop lounge.

And while we're fantasizing, let's add that your body always looks great in it.

Imagine no more. The dream dress exists. Fans of the Misfay Women's Summer Beach Cover-Up with Pockets find it to be oh-so forgiving and versatile — and right now it's on sale for $23 on Amazon (was $30).

If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

The fun little swing dress gained a happy following on Amazon — over 3,500 reviewers have given it a five-star rating, and they keep coming back for more colors and patterns. Why? Because it's flattering, easy, comfortable and pretty in its simplicity. (I know because I have one that I adore!) Read on to hear what it's like to wear one of these cuties.

Accentuate the positives

The adorable Misfay cover-up adds coverage where you most want it, while still allowing you to show some skin and enjoy that blissful ocean breeze. Readers love how it skims areas they are self-conscious about.

One five-star reviewer said, "I was very worried this wouldn't fit.... I have a paunchy tummy since giving birth and these types of dresses are really hit-or-miss.... I threw this on and was immediately in love with it. It's soft, it clings to my bust...and completely hides my paunch while showing off my hips.... There's no panty line and the pockets don't add bulk to the thighs (yes there are roomy pockets!!)."

Another grateful customer exclaimed that the Misfay is the "perfect summer dress. I love this dress!! It’s sooo comfortable! I’m 5’3 and 150. It hides everything I want it to and get doesn’t make me feel like I’m wearing a potato sack. The material is soft and not too thin or cheap. Falls a couple inches above the knee (perfect length). The pockets are a plus cause I can keep my phone and keys on me..."

Cool comfort

You can layer this soft swing dress for now with leggings and a cute jean jacket. Then shed them come summer, when a light and airy garment like this is everything.

"It was 110 degrees today and wore this dress to a birthday dinner," raved a happy shopper. "It was cool and comfortable. The material is soft and stretchy. I will be ordering a few more in different patterns. Oh, I love the pockets!!! If you are on the fence about this dress — go for it! I am absolutely happy that I did."

Another added: "Very comfortable! Very lightweight. I have bought four others just like it!... It's very hot in the summer, so they keep me cool, and my husband appreciates the sexiness of them."

So many choices!

The Misfay dress comes in an array of colors and unique patterns — 41 in all. Whether you prefer pastels, brights, florals, mandalas, animal prints, stripes or tie-dyes, there is certain to be one (or likely many) that's especially right for you. Sizes range from XS to 3X.

One hooked shopper said she couldn't stop at just one: "I originally ordered this dress in purple-gray, and loved it so much, I had to order the blue one, too. I’m actually hoping to catch more...as they are the perfect staple for any wardrobe. They are soft and flowy, fit true to size (ordered size small, my usual size at 5’3”, 140 lbs.), and come in great colors — both neutrals and nice, muted colors...The pockets are deep, can hold a smartphone and keys easily, and hang nicely against the sides, as in, they don’t bulge out...I will definitely order more of these when I have the chance!"

With this one-and-done coverup, we won't even need a suitcase for our next vacay. I love my ultrasoft purple-gray version. Get it in your favorite style while it's on sale, and we can high-five on the boardwalk.
