This dress has become my favorite thing to swim in, when I can't swim naked. It's the closest thing to bare skin, so much more comfortable than swimsuit fabric. This summer has been scorching, reaching the 100s. Since getting this slip, there have been days I haven't been able to bear wearing anything else. I've hiked, camped, gardened, ran errands--you name it, in this slip. I got it in black and it's not see-through. It's a simple cut, super chic and even sexy. You can dress it up or down, or swim in it, like me! On those burning hot days, it's delightful to get it wet and let the breeze through the dress cool you down. The material is so soft and breathable. KEY WORD = BREATHABLE. All my other clothes' fabrics don't compare. I've fallen in love with bamboo and Boody.
