Fact: Clothing can get pretty skimpy this time of year (we get it; it's hot out). Accordingly, many dresses and tops on the market are designed to be worn sans bra, which doesn't make things easy for women who don't feel comfortable with that level of exposure. We're here to assure you that you're not alone: We found plenty of dresses that are adorable, will keep you cool, and are very bra-friendly (i.e. a Reformation maxi dress and a cool denim minidress).
Check out the options below—you'll find dresses appropriate for weddings, vacation, work, and lazy summer weekends. Consider all of your summer dress needs met.
