Athleta Santorini Thera Dress Review
There are few silhouettes that I love more than a fit and flare dress. Combine that with Athleta’s knack for comfortable and versatile leisure wear, and the santorini thera dress is a big winner. I picked up this one in a rich shade of plum.
Currently there are limited colors and sizes for this dress on the Athleta site, but you can find many colors and sizes at great prices on Poshmark and eBay, including many new arrivals with tags.
I wear this dress in XXS, my usual size in Athleta, and it fits me perfectly. The fabric is stretchy so the size is easy to achieve. I suggest ordering your true size. Due to the generous fit of the skirt, be sure to select the size based on your usual height at the top, not your waist at the bottom. I’m 5’3 ″ and I love that the length hits just above my knee. I’m wearing the normal length, not the petite – I think the petite would be too short for my personal preference.
The arm openings are cut slightly narrow, so the straps of a regular bra will be a little noticeable. Even the sports bra I’m wearing in these photos protrudes slightly from the armholes. Crossed bras will work best if you prefer a clean look.
The dress is made of a thicker fabric which is not at all transparent. The fabric is modal tencel, which is so soft and comfortable to wear. The fabric looks like cotton, not technical fabric. The little spandex means it’s easy to move around and not feel strangled. After a few washes it has not pilled or shown signs of wear.
As the cooler season approaches, this dress looks great with a cardigan, leggings and boots depending on the weather. Whether you’re getting ready for work or heading to the farmer’s market, the simple yet flattering style is perfect for dressing up or casually.
Overall, I love this dress as a versatile and comfy wardrobe basic. I haven’t found anything that I don’t like about it. I hope Athleta will continue to offer color options in the future.
