After scouring through Amazon, this is the best-rated Christmas sweater dress. 50+ have been bought in the past month and its Amazon prime for all you last minute girlies. One customer said, “It’s adorable and the quality is good. The fit is a bit oversized which is great, just as described. The large fits me perfectly with just a little extra room. I actually usually buy XL but got the L and it’s perfect for me. If you want it very spacious and comfy, get a size up from what you’d usually get.”

Based on the reviews, this sweater dress runs large. You can always alter it if it's too long. Someone in the reviews said, “I'm 5’1 and it hit just above my knees. its the perfect amount of oversized but its just so long.” I also feel like this would be super cute to wear casually during the holidays.

Popular Designs and Themes

Ugly Christmas sweater dresses are basically like festive mood boards you can wear. Think classic vibes with reindeer, snowflakes, Santa – all the holiday essentials making an entrance. 

What's fun about these sweaters are also the cheesy sayings, puns, and cringe graphics. The colors are also super festive - you'll see a lot of greens, bright reds, and yellows.

If you want to take it another step, find a dress that has 3D objects that affix to the dress like jingle bells, twinkling lights, or Christmas ornaments. The tinsel tree sweater dress from Tipsy Elves is a great option for this.

There are so many unique and fun designs, it really depends what your personally going for. If I had to pick, I would opt for the black grinch sweater dress from Amazon because it looks the most comfortable out of the entire list. 

Ugly Christmas Sweater Contests

Ugly Christmas sweater dress contests are like flexing your holiday spirit. Normally there are several categories that are created - "Most Creative," "Funniest Design," and "Tackiest Sweater" are some generic ones. Then, a couple of judges are picked to rate each dress based on how original, hilarious, and unapologetically ugly your sweater game is.

What gets everyone motivated and excited are the prizes. If you're hosting, you can buy the prizes or have everyone pitch in a certain amount. People normally opt for gift cards from Amazon, Starbucks, or even Nordstrom. Another option is holiday treats like cookies, holiday baskets, or candy canes/candy corn. The beauty of these contests is not the prizes, but just getting everyone together to have a laugh and enjoy each other company. So, grab the ugliest sweater you can find and go! 🎄✨


I hope you were able to find an ugly sweater that resonates with you unique style and personality! And if you loved this read, make sure to check out these matching pajamas with your significant other!
