Compared to finding a strapless bra that actually stays up or a well fitting swimsuit that actually feels good (the struggle!), shopping for the perfect summer dress is supposed to be easy—right? But trying to find a dress that isn’t too young (step away from the clingy, way-too-short minis of your youth) but also isn’t too mom-ish (leave the high-necks to your own mom) is harder than you might think.
