Maintenance of sundresses is a little tricky thing. The most preferred material for a sundress is cotton. And cotton is perhaps the most difficult to maintain. This is because cotton is a natural fiber and hence it is the most prone to wear and tear. It fades out, gets dirty, suffers every possible calamity and finally looks worn out. Cotton absorbs sweat and moisture which also make it unclean. Don’t ever use bleach to remove stain from a cotton sundress. Cotton is prone to lose color fast. Wash cotton sundress in cold water preferably and dry it in shadow after twisting.
Another preferred material for sundress is jersey knit. This is cotton or silk mixed with polyester, modal or spandex. This material too is extremely adorable because of the comfort and fitting it offers. It is softer when proportion of natural fibers in it is more. Sometimes it is even more preferred to cotton because it requires less maintenance. But you have to take care of pilling it is prone to, for which you can remember not to carry your purse on one shoulder for too long and keep on changing. Other areas more exposed to rubbing also should be taken care of.
