What shoppers are saying

Out of more than 300 reviews, Nordstrom shoppers have given this dress their seal of approval — and a 4.4-star average rating. Shoppers love how "versatile" this dress is, and call it both "casual and cute."

"This dress is comfy and PERFECT. Just like magic!" raves a happy customer. "The fabric is wonderful and the length is just right for either flats or a pair of heels. Can’t wait to dress it up or down! Also, great price!"

"This dress is so flattering, cute and comfy and perfect for spring/summer," writes another. "I wanted a dress that was very comfortable yet versatile to use in my capsule wardrobe, and this one really fits the bill!"

"So casual and cute...I think anyone can pull off this little dress because it’s ruched. I can definitely pull it under the knee or above, love with white tennis shoes and with a denim jacket over," adds another shopper.

In order to get the perfect fit, some shoppers recommend going down a size.

"Cute and comfortable dress, but definitely size down! Because of the ruching on the side, buying or wanting a looser or oversized look doesn’t work. I think it's only flattering if it’s fitted, otherwise the ruching bunches," suggests one reviewer.

"I wasn’t sure what size to go with since it is a body-con dress, so I ordered my normal medium and a small. The medium was comfy but looked too baggy and definitely not the look I was going for. The small fit snugly like a body-con should. Love it. Can’t wait to wear it! If you’re unsure about size, I would size down," echoes another.

The verdict

If you're looking to jazz up your summer wardrobe, the Treasure & Bond Side Ruched Body-Con Dress is a shopper-approved style that rings in under $100. Whether you're heading to the beach or a backyard barbecue, this flattering dress is guaranteed to be a summer go-to. However, although the soft fabric yields a comfortable fit, you might want to size down before purchasing.
