    Default Stretchy t-shirt material Summer dresses... (that pull in at the waist)?

    I need some dresses I can pull on for around the house when I'm too lazy to iron my nicer stuff. Something that's nice, comfortable and doesn't require ironing. Also that fits over a large bust and pulls in at the waist (or can be pulled it in with a belt). So nothing that kind of just drops and is shapeless. I would look about 20 sizes bigger if I wore something like that.

    Help?

    (I'm a size 12/14 depending on boob/hip room).

    I got lots of stretchy maxi's from kmart that I lived in when I was pregnant. They had lots of designs and they were only like $30 from memory. Not sure if they still have them as this was a while ago.

    Thanks Cassie!

    I'm too short for maxis (and always find them so freaking hot in Summer too - I need my knees to catch some breeze... lol)... but I'm HOPING there's some shorter dresses out there that fit the bill (not short - my legs can't do short... lol).

    I have gotten some nice midi and maxis from Asos in a stretchy, fitted material. They also have different length options in some of their maxis I get the short ones (I'm 5'5) and they're perfect!

    Have you tried looking in somewhere like supre? They sometimes have those types of dresses.

    I went trawling through my draws the other day searching for something and found a Cotton On dress that matches this description. I have noidea where it came from or if it's even mine but I've been wearing it since! So comfy! They may have somethig similar now, and because they're so affordable you could get a few

    I saw Kmart have quite a lot of nice summery dresses in at the moment - jersey and cotton type fabrics. Perfect for around the house as they are so cheap! I know cotton on often do cotton summer dresses which are sort of gathered under the bust and still light weight and knee length!

    I got some really nice stretchy type material dresses from myer last year. They are pinched at the waist with elastic and had some frills on them. They are black and white striped and the other is red and white striped. I love them!

    I just brought one for around the house from BigW today! $25 and it is white & blue strips, gathered with a bit of elastic at the waste. Very comfy.

    I've also just found quite a few on eBay from UK suppliers - I searched maxi casual dresses, then narrowed down to cotton or jersey material.
