Let’s chat about one of my most favorite purchases of summer 2019, shall we? The Amazon Mumu Dress. If you haven’t seen this dress yet (or 100 times) you may be living under a rock. Because just about everyone and their sister have been wearing this mumu dress. One might even say, it is THE dress of summer 2019. And for VERY good reason! 

Now I obviously was not the first to find/wear this dress and I cannot for the life of me think who was actually the first person I saw wearing it – who convinced me to buy it BUT I think it might have been Lindsey Regan Thorne – the lady is fabulous! 

Amazon Mumu Dress Review 

First, I’m diving into why I love this dress and why you truly need it in your life. Maybe even twice. The dress is ultra comfy, super lightweight, incredibly cute while being pretty unique, doesn’t stick to you when it’s almost too hot to breathe, and it is under $30. I mean, really do I need to say more? 

It’s one of those pieces you find yourself reaching for over and over again. You’ll want to wear it to everything and will find the perfect excuse to do just that. The best part is you can do so while looking different because the dress comes in 17 DIFFERENT COLORS! I have the light blue (shocker) and have recently scooped up the multi-colored pink – I think it’s perfect for transitioning into fall

What Size Do I Order?

I will say the dress fits a little small. Obviously there is plenty of room from the chest down but through the chest and shoulders it is a little tight. Therefore, if you’re in between sizes I would recommend sizing up. Or if you have board shoulders like me or a larger chest. 

For reference, I am 5’4″, 119lbs, and wear a 30D bra and opted for a small. It is a tiny bit tight in the shoulder when I move around but feel if I went with a medium the dress might overtake me. 

Best option, order your normal go to size and then one bigger. Then you can see what fit you like better. I have learned through ordering clothes recently on Amazon that they make returns SO easy! So to me, it’s super worth it to make sure you get the right fit on the first try!

What do I wear underneath the dress? 

This was a concern of mine with the bows in the front however, I learned it really isn’t an issue. Especially if you wear the bows tied – I do! Most of the time I reach for my typical everyday bra, you might see a tiny peek of it but it’s nude and really don’t notice it. 

If you want to wear the ties open or add a little feminine touch, I recommend wearing a lace bralette. Either in white, nude, or a color that compliments your Amazon Mumu dress. 

And if we’re being super honest, if you’re on the smaller side in the chest department you can 100% go bra free and no one will know. Another big selling point for this dress – am I right?

How do I style the Amazon Mumu dress? 

I think people (I was one of them, initially) see the dress online and are worried about it looking like a nightgown or being too overwhelming for their body shape/size BUT I’m here to tell you that is NOT true! As long as you get the appropriate size! 

This dress looks adorable paired with a simple pair of sandals and a straw bag. Or grab your favorite pair of white sneakers, throw your hair in a ponytail, and call it a day! The sporty, casual route is good one to take. 

Personally, I love the Amazon Mumu dress paired with a headband. That’s probably my feminine side coming out but I just think it looks so cute! 

Really, anything goes and what you pair with the dress will show off your personal style! So girl, rock it how you want to!

Do I really need the amazon Mumu dress?

Okay, so I’m not typically someone to be like girl you need this and this and then that and oh yeah, that as well. That just ain’t me BUT when I find something I really, truly love, I say yes girl, you need this or I really recommend this piece. The Amazon Mumu dress is one of those pieces. I truly love this dress and think it is such a great buy. One you’ll wear next summer too or depending on the color you pick, into the fall season as well.

    I truly appreciated your detail review of this dress. I’ve been seeing it everywhere, but so far, I had yet to actually read all the intricate ins-and-outs of how it might fit, etc. Thank you for that! I’m not 100% sure it’s my style, but maybe it’s one of those things that is determined AFTER you buy haha!
