When it comes to exercise dresses, Outdoor Voices reigns supreme. The celebrity-loved brand worn by everyone from Lizzo to Hailey Bieber sent the Internet into a frenzy when it launched its Exercise Dress back in 2018; since then, the dress has gone viral and racked up over 3,000 five-star reviews. Now, the brand has added a fourth dress silhouette to its stellar lineup — and believe it or not, I think it's even better than the OG. (Check out the Outdoor Voices leggings one editor swears by.)

The Court Dress is actually a combination of two of Outdoor Voices' most popular activewear pieces: the Double Time Bra and Court Skort. It's designed to function like a set, but stay in place like a dress; the bra top is connected to the skort via the front of the dress, but has a back cutout that makes it look like separate pieces from behind. The cutouts are visible from the sides of the dress, too, and the skort has a slit that shows off the shorts (which have two pockets) underneath. It comes in three colors — white, green, and orange, and is available in sizes XS to XL.

Outdoor Voices sent me the Court Dress to test out, and I fell in love with it immediately after pulling it on. I was a little nervous about the back and side cutouts not being flattering on me, but I was totally wrong — they're super cute and actually made me feel confident. The dress is comfortable and stretchy, and even though I haven't worn it to work out yet, I feel very supported in it. I can tell it'd be great for low- to medium-impact exercise.

I've tried the brand's viral exercise dress and have to say that I prefer the Court Dress; I like the soft, textured material a lot more than the nylon, and overall, I think it has a better fit. I tried the Court Dress in both a medium and a large (I'm one of those people who is always a different size in every article of clothing), and both of them fit well. If you're looking for that more compressive fit, I'd say get the dress in your regular size, but if you want a little more wiggle room, size up.

The TL;DR? The Outdoor Voices Court Dress will be replacing all my activewear this summer, and I have a feeling it might just do the same for you, too.
