The Loveappella maxi dresses have been a HUGE reader favorite for years now!! While I typically prefer knee-length dresses and don’t love jersey dresses for travel, with so many rave reviews from the readers, I had to get this for myself. And I was pleasantly surprised!

One pro of the Loveappella dress is it looks fab with crossbody purses!




Loveappella’s maxi dress offers effortless elegance and style. It’s easy to dress up and down, and looks great with everything from flip flops to sneakers to dressy wedges. The cooling and lightweight fabric means you can wear it to walk around and explore new cities in the heat or stay cool and polished on a hot summer night out on the town. 

It’s comfy, doesn’t wrinkle, and looks super flattering on. And it comes in regular, petite, and plus sizes—yay!

A happy wearer sums it up, “Classic, elegant dress that gas a breezy flow and shape to it. The neckline is not plunging at all and I certainly don’t see my bra. It’s a very lightweight material which I love. I got it in deep navy which is a nice change from black. And it’s forgiving of my post-baby shape. All in all, I’m super pleased!”




Unsure what bra to wear in the Loveappella dress? These top travel picks might help!




While it has a really nice drape, some readers have noted that the fabric of the Loveappella maxi dress is a tad too thin for their liking, and can sometimes show underwear lines depending on how it lays. Others say that even though it’s not tight, it can tend to drape in a way that shows off curves, which is another thing to keep in mind. And you could always pair it with a cardigan or shawl!

One reader says, “It’s thin, and yes, you can sometimes see underwear lines, but it’s such a loose cut that it’s mostly okay.” And while the neckline isn’t plunging, some readers like to have a bit more coverage and have shared using bandeau bras or cropped camis underneath. 

Overall, with its easy-to-wear design, comfortable and low-maintenance fabric, and stunning silhouette, it’s easy to see why this pretty number is on so many readers’ summer packing lists!
