Some of our favorite things start off as a recommendation from a friend. Whether they swear by high-waisted leggings, a pair of sneakers they can walk miles in or a throw-on-and-go dress they can wear literally anywhere, we rely on those in the know to give us the scoop on what really works. Now, imagine you had access to the opinions of tens of thousands of friends from all different walks of life — if that many people rally behind something, there's no way it's a dud.
No need to join any new social media groups; instead, trust the opinions of countless Amazon reviewers. They know how to differentiate something gimmicky from something great, and chances are, when hoards of them swear by something, it's the real deal. They're a discerning bunch, and you can use their knowledge to your advantage.
This tee, made from breathable, opaque fabric, has a slouchy fit. And it comes in 39 shades! Bonus: Those tulip sleeves lend a flirty, feminine touch.
"This top is so pretty," shared one of more than 10,000 reviewers. "Absolutely LOVE the petal sleeves! This top is like a T-shirt but with fancier sleeves, which makes it easy to dress up but you still get the comfort of a tee. The material is very soft, fairly lightweight and [has a] loose fit. I’m a big fan of v-neck shirts, I think they are more feminine. The v-neckline combined with the petal sleeves makes this top very flattering and pretty!"
This easy-breezy frock goes from day to night without a hitch. It's made from rayon and spandex, which makes it comfy and stretchy. The low-cut back and side slit adds a sexy touch.
"Awesome dress!" shared one of 29,000 five-star shoppers. "After giving birth to my daughter I have felt very self-conscious about my ‘mom body’. However, this dress is so comfortable and very flattering. I was scared that because it's a loose-fitting dress I would look like I was wearing a muumuu. I looked awesome and actually felt pretty again! Will be buying more in other colors!"
Whether you wear them alone of under short dresses and skirts, these biker shorts are easily going to be one of your most-worn pieces this summer. They boast a waist-cinching high rise, are made with moisture-wicking fabric, and most importantly: pockets!
"These are hands down the best workout bike shorts I’ve ever owned," said one faithful customer who owns four pairs. "They fit like a dream, the buttery soft brush makes them feel exactly like Lulu biker shorts, and they are compression fit. They don’t ride up at all and stay put. Plus the pockets are a perfect bonus. I was so shocked I was able to find literal Lulu quality shorts for this price. I’m so picky with workout wear and these exceeded every expectation I had! Definitely buy!"
These chic slides are a fantastic choice for indoors and out. They boast one very important quality: They're waterproof, making them great for beach days. Plus, if you're a runner, the heavy-duty padding on these comfy slides will feel downright cloud-like after a jog.
“These shoes are so comfortable,” a fan reports. “I work in sales and stand all day. These slides are a pillow for my aching feet.”
This just might be the most flattering sports bra out there. It packs plenty of support and provides enough coverage so you don't feel like you'll spill over mid-workout. It's also long enough to be worn as a tank top.
"This is the perfect workout tank!" one shopper raved. "Good support...It’s super flattering and a perfect length for anything high-waisted. I’d even wear this as a going-out top!"
These leggings boast a seamless high waist and flatlock construction to minimize bulk. They're also lightweight and moisture-wicking with four-way stretch. No wonder nearly 39,000 reviewers are floored.
"WOW, they nailed it," a shopper weighed in. "Super soft, very stretchy and comfy, provides a good amount of support and look really good on."
The mega-popular Hilor one-piece has over 14,000 five-star reviews. It's not hard to see why: Fully lined, it has a slimming stretchy panel at the waist and elastic criss-cross straps that offer plenty of bust support.
"It is sooooo flattering on my new mom bod," one postpartum fan shared. "This highlights all the right places and disguises the bad ones! The thought of a sheer middle made me uneasy, but it actually creates a pretty awesome optical illusion and makes your waist look smaller! The material is super thick and soft.... Fits like a glove and the straps aren’t too big or loose. Also has great butt coverage and leg openings."
