When I think of sundresses for high summer, one of the first options that come to mind is Reformation’s Juliette Dress. It feels more casual than the Twilight Dress, and can easily take you from daytime wedding to Santorini getaway. The colorway that I am wearing here is “Lazuli,” which is white dots on a medium blue base.
Some practical features: adjustable tie straps; a high side slit for movement; a smocked back for elasticity; matching lining for opacity; and the lightweight rayon material (which needs to be steamed before wear).
As this dress has a sweetheart neckline and thin straps, you’ll want to wear a plunge strapless bra with it. And I wouldn’t recommend this dress for those who are especially buxom (DD+) because of spillage risk. The Juliette Dress also fits small to size in the torso, so consider sizing up.
I am 5’2, with the following bust-waist-hip measurement: 34-24-33, and found the Juliette Dress in size 0 to be the best fit for me.
