What's Up With Memes About Sundresses Being On Maslow's Hierarchy Of Needs? The 'Railed In A Sundress' Trend Explained

4th of July has passed and the peak of summer is officially upon us. With the scorching summer heat comes undeniable summer thirst, a phenomenon that is perhaps best examined through the yearly "railed in a sundress" meme.

The Sundress Challenge is a trend that began in a very inappropriate fashion on TikTok, but eventually evolved into a mostly harmless trend that lathered compliments on women who wear pretty sundresses during the summer season. Here's how memes about sundress season began, and why these jokes have persisted every summer since 2021.

What Is The Sundress Challenge?

The Sundress Challenge is a trend derived from the phrase "sundress season," typically understood to be hot summer months when women show off their legs in breezy light summer sundresses. It was as early as 2017 that internet users began joking about the double innuendo behind "sundress season," with one Urban Dictionary user joking that a sundress gives one "easier access" to do the dirty.

By 2021, TikTokers began making videos about sundress season and the Sundress Challenge in particular, which is basically a form of sexual exhibitionism aided by the convenience of a sundress. A few weeks into the summer of 2021, TikTok had already banned the hashtags #sundresschallenge for promoting inappropriate content on the app.

How Did People React To The Sundress Challenge?

As both sincere and joking videos about couples participating in the Sundress Challenge spread on TikTok, other internet users began sharing their horrified reactions to the trend. While most people acknowledged that professional sex workers may have popularised the phrase, many warned others of the dangers of participating in such exhibitionism, getting caught, and being labeled as a sex offender for life.
