Dresses are comfortable and cooling but come with a small caveat – if it’s windy, you may find yourself flashing strangers. Whether you’re walking up stairs or your purse rubs your skirt up on the side (it happens to us all), covering your bum is important. Wearing bike shorts underneath can be a great option, but sometimes they are too thick for a hot day. Swap them out for a pair of these extra coverage undies or slip shorts next time you’re wearing a mini dress.
