Local News Anchors Around the Country Are OBSESSED With This Amazon Dress
Clearly they all got the memo — or rather, they all saw the Facebook post.
Ever since a member of a Facebook group for women newscasters posted a link to a dress sold on Amazon, it has been spotted on more than 40 local anchors and reporters in broadcasts across the country.
And who can blame them? It's not every day that you find a cute dress that apparently looks great on everyone.
"It's flattering at the waist," Frances Wang, the Sacramento ABC anchor who posted the above diagram on various social media outlets, toldToday. "There's a little cut at the top at the neckline, but it's not too low."
Called the Sidefeel Short Sleeve Sweet Scallop Pleated Skater Dress, it was especially easy to spot on reporters thanks to its adorable scalloped-edge short sleeves and hem.

Wang is glad people are noticing the popularity of the dress in her industry because, just like the rest of us, they're responsible for their day-to-day wardrobe and look for affordable options to keep things varied.
"There's a notion that we seem to sit around all day and get our hair and makeup done," she told Today, "but it's a grind, and the last thing I want to do is worry about is what I have to wear."
Who can't relate to that, right?
Other local newscasters have been sharing photos of themselves in the dress, and it's clear that plenty of non-newscasters have noticed, because the dress, described on the Amazon product page as "a CUTE, PRETTY and STYLISH dress for fashion ladies," is sold out in every color and size. But luckily, we've found it on eBay!
This isn't the first time a dress has become a sensation on local news stations. An under- sheath dress was spotted on dozens of meteorologists in 2015 (yes, after a Facebook group post), and is still going strong in 10 colors on Amazon. The vendor even updated the description to state how prolific it is among broadcast weather pros.
