  • Wearing dresses made of natural wovens is essential (Silk, though natural, breathes poorly so isn't the best option for the heat) Layering with pettipants and a slip both in cotton helps ensure comfort; long, flowing skirts are the best; if, in the worst of the heat one chooses to forego pantihose, if one's skirt or dress is ankle length or just a few inches higher, it won't look porly; worn with practical yet nice sandals, comfort and neatness are both assured.
