I started to judge, but then I remembered that I buy both dresses and eggs at Target all the time and quickly shut my mouth. But the viral grocery dress got me thinking that there have to plenty of other great dresses out there that are less than $15. And if I upped the price to $30, I might find even more. And I was right. Whether you’re looking for something that shows off your curves or leaves a little more to the imagination, you can find a great dress on a budget. These are a few of my favorites.
