  • The dresses which I bought online arrived today.
  • The dresses which/that I bought online arrived today.
  • Without commas, "which I bought online" or "that I bought online" is a restrictive clause, specifying which dresses arrived today. Westenさん's correction only makes sense if the reader already knows exactly which dresses you are talking about, because it makes "which I bought online" a nonrestrictive clause. "That" can only be used with a restrictive clause. "Which" can be used with both types.
