CHICAGO -- If you wear dresses, you know that dresses and the Windy City can be a bad mix.

One young entrepreneur is fighting back against the backside flash with a new product, called "Dress Downs."

The garment weight sticks to the inside seam of skirts and dresses, with just enough weight to keep it down even when facing city wind gusts.

"We tested the different weights, different wind gusts and adhesives to find the right mix. We even used a wind barometer to test the garment weight in different conditions," Simone Magee, the founder, said.

Dress Downs garment weights are reusable and sold in packs of four.

They can be purchased at dressdowns.com or on Amazon.
