We in Scotland do not have this problem - we usually think in layers, to
hide the goose-bumps, and blue skin.
When choosing material for a white dress, choose something which can be
washed and dripdried and which doesn't crease too much when worn. Cotton
might be wonderful, but having to iron "that darn dress" everytime you have
to wear it, does take the pleasure away.
