OLD Navy has a whole new crop of plus-size dresses this season, and they're not just stylish.
One fashion blogger shared her favorite summer dress styles from the store, and most of them are under $30.
On her YouTube channel, Jasmine Styles brought viewers into the dressing room with her and gave her honest feedback about eight different Old Navy dresses.
The first, pictured above, was a pink maxi swing dress, $22, which the Memphis-based mom tried on and immediately loved.
"I love the details on the dress," Styles said, turning to show the bow at the back.
For hot summer days, she especially liked "the spaghetti straps and how the back of the dress is made."

Next, Styles tried on a printed minidress with puff sleeves and a tie-front.
She showed off the midriff cutout and the handy pockets on the dress, which retails for $30.
"Y'all know I'm in my prime trying on this dress," Styles said. "It's hugging in all the right places."
The length was just right for dressing up or down with a wedge heel or a pair of casual sandals, Styles added. "It's a mini dress that is not too short," she said.

Styles went sleeveless in a cami dress next.
The slub-knit dress has subtle tiers for movement and easy, breezy straps. The fashionista tried it on in a pale peach color.
"I strongly feel maxi dresses were designed for plus-size women," Styles said.
She told viewers about the dress's built-in bra, which is lightly lined and provides moderate coverage if wearers want to skip a bra of their own. The dress retails for $28.
"Listen. It's a vibe," Styles said as soon as she showed viewers her next pick.
The creamy white halter dress, $28, has ribbed knitting for a fitted look and a sexy halter neckline that still provides support.
"I am loving this dress," Styles said. "It's not showing too much cleavage."
Her next choice was one of the only dresses over $30 Styles showed viewers.
The tie-shoulder dress retails for $38, and Styles said the price is well worth it.
"This dress is really, really cute," she said, before listing all the positive qualities: the bright print, the flowy and comfortable silhouette, and the tassels at the end of the spaghetti strap shoulder ties.
She only had one qualm – it ran a little large.
"I was on a see-saw with it," Styles admitted. The only reason she didn't swap the XL for a Large was resistance to returning to the sales floor with the dress on. "I would've sized down but I didn't want to go back and forth," she said.
"This one is my favorite," Styles said, revealing a rib-knit cami dress priced at $26.
She tried on the sundress in a bright orange color perfect for summer.
"It has the two slits on the sides, which I absolutely love," Styles said.
And the fit was perfect, too, even without a bra. "I love the way this dress is hugging my curves," she said.
The dress, priced at $23.99, had a denim look that Styles adored.
"You can not go wrong with jeans anything," she insisted.
Styles pointed out the cute details that elevated the perfect summer dress, from the flared fabric on the straps, to the big ruffle toward the bottom of the dress.
"For any body shape, I believe you will love these dresses," Styles said, encouraging other plus-size shoppers to add it to their carts immediately.
Her last pick was a classic style, and also the most expensive dress of the bunch at $40.
"I do love the colorblock colors," Styles said. "You could pair this dress with any accessory, shoe, sandal, or handbag as well."

Like the floral maxi dress, Styles had one warning for other plus-size shoppers: they might want to try on a smaller size than usual.
"I could've definitely sized down in this dress," she admitted.
