Spring Dresses That Are Comfortable and Affordable

Comfortable and Affordable Spring Dresses

Are you ready for spring dresses? Today I have a few spring dresses that are comfortable and affordable, from casual to special occasion, that are worth checking out!

And if you’re looking for more options, I rounded up even more spring dresses for you at the bottom of this post. Be sure to check that out as well!

SIZING: I’m 5’6″ and usually S/M or 6 in clothes and 8.5 to 9 in shoes.

black tiered maxi dress + black sandals + gold earrings + gold necklace

Tiered Maxi Dress
Need a super-comfy casual dress? This one is reallllly soft, very, very stretchy, and feels like you’re wearing pajamas — but looks a thousand times better! And, it has POCKETS! I like how it’s flowy without being completely shapeless, thanks to the tiers.

I’ve been wanting to update my black maxi dress, and this is a great option. Not looking for a black dress? It comes in 30 colors, too, HERE! I wear size S.

There is also a sleeveless version of this dress that I bought in magenta a few summers ago. That one is equally as comfy and comes in 25 colors, HERE.

tan and white striped t shirt dress + white sandals + white earrings

Striped T-Shirt Dress
Who doesn’t love a good t-shirt dress? I shared this one last spring, and it became a best seller among fellow PMT readers. It’s soft, stretchy, and comfy! And it has pockets! The belted waist keeps you from looking totally shapeless and offers an extra visual detail. The knee length is also very versatile and looks great with low-profile lifestyle sneakers and with sandals. Find it in 12 solid colors and 12 printed versions, HERE. I wear size S.

Note: The fabric for different colorways feels a bit different. For example, the tan/white stripe is super soft and super stretchy. But when I tried the black/white stripe one, it wasn’t quite as soft, felt a bit thicker, and was stretchy but not uber stretchy like the tan/white striped one.

Note #2: I often wear slips under these soft, stretchy dresses to both keep the fabric from clinging to my backside and to smooth things out a bit more back there. I especially wear a slip with this dress, since it’s a bit more formfitting in the back on me. If you’re looking for a slip, I like the style of this one because the lace waistband lays flat against you instead of digging into your stomach and creating extra bumps. (I don’t own this exact slip, but I own one that looks identical to it that is no longer available.)

green smocked midi dress + tan sandals + gold jewelry

Smocked Midi Dress
This is another dress that is super-duper soft and stretchy and feels like pajamas but is a dressier version! 🤩 The smocking at the chest, the puff sleeves, and the square neckline elevate it so you can wear it to dressy casual events like church, baby showers, and birthday dinners, but still be CRAZY comfortable! It comes in 9 colors, which you can see HERE. I’m wearing size S.

blue flutter sleeve v neck wrap dress + nude heeled sandals + gold jewelry

V-Neck Dress
If you’re looking for a nicer dress, this one has been a PMT reader favorite for years! Its cross-front, v-neck, empire waist style is flattering on tons of body types. This is another great option for church, baby showers, and birthday dinners that is easy to wear and looks great! It comes in over 40 colors and prints, although some styles are slightly different. Find them all HERE. I wear size S.

blue and white print wrap dress + yellow shoes + yellow earrings

Wrap Dress
This classic style wrap dress has been a popular PMT item for a couple of years, and it’s still available this year! The style is timeless and flattering for many body types, thanks to its v-neckline and wrap silhouette. It’s made of a smooth fabric that’s fairly thick, and it doesn’t get caught on bumps as easily as other fabrics do, which is nice. It’s great for work or for dressier occasions and comes in 4 solid colors and 5 prints, HERE. I wear size S.

v neck navy and white print maxi dress + tan sandals + tan earrings

V-Neck Maxi Dress
This is another find from last year that’s available again, and fellow PMTers loved it last year. If you’re talking about spring dresses that are comfortable and affordable, this is a YES ALL THE WAY. It’s SO comfy! It’s made of super soft fabric, is very, very stretchy, and totally feels like you’re wearing pajamas. It’s available in 11 solid colors and 4 prints, which you can see HERE. I wear size S. Very cute and easy to wear, especially on those days you want to feel put together but just want to be in PJs!
