Your wardrobe may already be filled to the brim with midi-dresses but, let's face it, there is always room for one more.

Especially when that one is bright, bold and baggy enough to relax in at home or wear to head out into the sunshine.

We're talking about our dress of the day: the Polka Dot V-Neck Midi Tiered Dress from Marks and Spencer.

Why we rate it:

Roomy and relaxed, this lightweight dress will keep you cool yet covered in warmer weather, and can easily be paired with tights and boots when winter rolls around.

The floaty tiered skirt is both flattering and playful, while the v-neck leaves space to accessorise with a piece of statement gold jewellery.

While tiered dresses can often be less than flattering, customers praise the number for being the perfect roomy silhouette, without making the wearer look bigger.

One customer even said: " [I] have been complimented each time I have worn it".

In short: It perfectly pairs comfort with style - and all for under £40.

If you love the print, it's also available in a blouse style in coral and blue, which is £19.50. The dress also used to be available in blue but it's already sold out, so we'd hurry and get your hands on this coral version while stock lasts.

What the reviews say:

  • "I’m very happy with this dress. It is tiered, but is not extensively gathered in the tiers as some seem to be, in fact hardly noticeable, and does not make me look bigger than I am. Lovely colour and nice drapery material."

  • "Flattering & comfortable dress. I saw somebody wearing this dress and i really wanted to ask where she’d got it as I liked it so much. So I was really pleased to see it on display just as I walked into my local M&S. I bought it and am not disappointed. It’s really comfortable, skims the body but doesn’t fall into the trap of having so much material it makes the wearer look huge."

  • "A comfortable and relaxed style and have been complimented each time I have worn it. Doesn’t really crease and needs very little ironing."

  • "A summer gem! This dress is just what I wanted - lightweight, floaty and body-skimming with my favourite v-neck. A beautiful colour with stylish puff sleeves - I liked it so much I also bought it in blue! I didn't give it five stars as the sleeve cuff was quite tight but I altered this to my satisfaction."

  • "Really nice dress, love the style, cut and colour. Lovely fit and good length as well."
