A stylist with an eye for affordable fashion has sent women racing to buy a $30 Kmart midi-dress that’s comfortable enough to run errands in while still being sufficiently glamorous for dinner or a night on the town.

Tina Abeysekara, 34, from Sydney, raved about the frock in an Instagram post, telling her 112,000 followers it’s ‘incredibly comfy’ and perfect for summer.

The ‘Sleeveless Tiered Midi’ – which comes in a mango colour called ‘guava’ – usually costs $30 but shoppers say they have seen it reduced to $10 in stores across Australia.

Available in sizes six to 20, the cotton dress has a square neck that is suitable for most bust sizes and a tiered silhouette that hangs loose over the body, in a flattering style for every shape.
