Summer is fast approaching, and while that means picnics in the park, summer hours (hopefully), and gin and tonics outside the pub, it also promises to bring with it some sweltering weather. Yes, this sounds great, but for the sweaty few among us (over here!), it can be a bit of a nightmarish season. I sweat just walking down the road in winter sometimes, so I was keen to find some summer dresses that don't show up sweat patches.
When picking your summer dress, I can advise opting for certain styles if you are prone to the sweats. While it's crucial to look for dresses made in lightweight fabric, I would also suggest picking printed designs that will cover up any signs of the dreaded armpit patches.
Alternatively, you can just pick a style of dress that ensures you'll never have to worry about sweating in the first place; for example, a sleeveless design or even a strapless one. Off the shoulder options are great too, as are one shoulder dresses (at least then you only have to worry about one armpit!).

This dress has a super lightweight fabric, and loose armpits, meaning no marks and potentially less sweating in the first place. It also has a v-neck back for extra ventilation. Oh, and did I mention the super cute shell print? Available in sizes XS - L.
I am obSESSED with this cute printed minidress, and am saving up to buy it as we speak. As well as looking incredible, it has puff sleeves, so nothing will get too hot in the armpit area. And if it does, the super bold print will save any embarrassment. Available in sizes 32 - 44.
I recently bought this beauty, and I can't get enough of it. It will look beautiful on holiday, during the evening or at the beach, and has no fabric around the armpits. Sweat to your heart's content, because it's not going to show on this one. Available in sizes 6 - 24.
