Does anyone still wear a slip?

I had a group of girls to the beach in February and we went out to dinner that Saturday night. Some of us were in dresses, some were in jeans or trousers. Somehow the topic of slips came up – as in, none of them wore slips. There I was, in my jersey dress -- complete with slip underneath – jaw agape, wondering if their mothers knew. Susan, I wear a slip with any sort of dress or skirt. Period. I feel like the world can tell when I do not!

Am I just old for my time?

Like what you see? Details are at Polyvore.com.

A few years back, the New York Times carried a piece on the Return of the Slip. The gist of it was this: as a backlash against low rise pants and exposed thongs, the slip was coming back into style, not as outerwear (we've all seen THAT look) but as underwear.

With a twist, though: the women interviewed in the Times were wearing their slips in such a way that they could be seen -- peeking out of the top of a blouse or flashing in the vent of a skirt.

Bah. I disapprove of that; it's just another variation on the thong that peeks out over the top of the jeans.

It's also not what Crist was asking.

Do YOU wear a slip? How often? Why? Or why not?

I don't own a slip; I opt instead for control-top stockings, for dress up, or microfiber undies, for more casual wear. But I can see the appeal of the slip, both in terms of modesty (something we have completely lost our sense of these days) and practicality.

I'll be back later with my theories about why the slip has fallen out of vogue as an undergarment, but first I really DO want to know what YOU are wearing under your skirts and dresses.

Ready ... go.

I don't wear anything under my dresses or skirts. Well, I wear panties, but no pantyhose, not a slip. I don't feel immodest - nothing is showing that shouldn't be, I just hate pantyhose with a fiery passion - they are a tool of the devil and invented by the evil patriarchy - and don't feel the need for another layer.

That being said, I have some cute tights that I wear with my skirts in the winter. I'm not sure why they aren't evil tools of the patriarchal devils, etc., but they're not. Maybe it's the patterns.

It completely depends on the skirt/dress. If it seems a bit see-through in bright light or it's clingy, I will wear a slip. A lot of skirts and dresses I wear have liners, and slips seem redundant. If it's a casual piece in a thicker material, I won't wear a slip. I don't wear them more than I do, but I do wear them occasionally.

A different Susan here, delurking. (Love the blog, Susan -- it's the first style blog I started reading when I began cleaning up my wardrobe last fall.)

Every skirt I own gets held up to the light. If there's any see-through, I wear a half slip. I do get the sense that this is unusual for young women my age (I'm twenty-four). Some of my girlfriends have said they don't own slips!

Oh, Crist, you charming little Southern lady :)

I don't own a slip. I avoid any unecessary undergarments at any cost, i.e. I do not wear hose unless I am county or district court, or at an interview. THE END.

I 'm pretty sure I own a half-slip... I think it's one of the random garments in my underwear drawer that occasionally will get churned up to the top by my frantic searches for clean underwear. I suspect my late grandmother gave it to me, because my own mother's lingerie dictums begin and end with WEAR A BRA. EVEN IN THE HOUSE. IF YOU DON'T, YOU'LL BE KICKING 'EM IN FRONT OF YOU BEFORE YOU'RE THIRTY.

So I'm not wearing a slip, I'll say that much. I wear my skirts and dresses with tights in the winter, or bare legs (with panties! always with panties!) in warm weather, or with hose if I'm going somewhere particularly fancy.

It wouldn't seem right to wear a slip under casual items like denim skirts or t-shirt dresses, and like Heels, most of my nice skirts and dresses have silky liners built in.

I don't owe one, wouldn't even know where to buy one, to be honest it reminds me of my grandma :-s

But I must say that if I had a skirt or dress that was a bit transparent, I would wear one. But all my skirts have liners, so I don't feel like I need one.

I agree with most of the comments. I only wear a half slip if the skirt or dress is see through. It's funny how times have changed though. Just this Easter my mother made a comment about my daughter and niece not having a slip on. She said she could see through their dresses. My daughter replied "Nana, no one wears slips!" My mother was agahst!

I wear only skirts and dresses. For me, it would depend on the dress or skirt. I wear a slip under light colored fabrics or clingy type fabrics. Under heavy khaki or denim, no.

I own two half slips, and wear them under unlined skirts that are potentially clingy, or potentially see-through. Which is pretty much all of my unlined skirts (word to the wise: linen? cotton lawn? almost always see-through). I find they help to prevent static cling in the winter when I am wearing tights, too.

I used to have a wonderful knit silk full slip that was a great (warm!) layer under dresses in the winter. I've rarely seen full slips for sale any more, except as stunt lingerie or in very fancy places.

Pretty much what they said. Ha! Yes I wear a half slip if necessary, but now days it is seldom necessary. Maybe they have improved at giving us lining?? Who knows? But at any rate, I loathe wearing a slip so I may avoid buying things that would need one.

I wear a slip under most of my skirts and dresses as I am a 90 year old trapped in a 28 year old body.

Actually I just started wearing the slip because I noticed that I was not wearing certain skirts and dresses because in direct sun they became transparent. The slip helps me feel more modest.

I did notice when I went slip shopping at Macy's that there was only half a rack of them and they weren't nearly as pretty as I remember my grandmother's being. It made me slightly worried that soon slips will be totally unavailable and perhaps I should stockpile enough of them to last the rest of my life.

I will wear a half slip if necessary.

Necessary situation involve dresses/skirts that cling or are see-through. There are very few see-through skirts anymore though; I do think the linings are improving.

Now, I am also not against wearing a slip & control-top stockings, so who knows?!

I HATE wearing a slip, but it feels necessary under certain skirts. For example, my wrap dress, which is black/white print and too clingy/slightly see-through without a slip. Susan, what do you do in that situation if you don't own a slip and you aren't wearing tights? Just make sure you never stand in front of a window?

i should be more specific and say that my slips are half slips. although i just recently purchased a couple of full slips, i have yet to try them out.

my mother complains that no one makes slips the way they used to, and i would have to agree... even if i don't know what they used to be like. many of the ones i see anymore are cheap looking and feeling. i've had luck with a brand -- i'll have to check at home -- for those of you who may be interested in a good foundations piece!

from the comments, i can tell you'll all be waiting with bated breath.

I have certain skirts/dresses that I ALWAYS wear a slip with, but mostly from fear of flashing the world in a wrap dress or to avoid the irritation of my skirt inching up my legs due to friction with my tights. Plus, it helps smooth out the underwear bumps when I don't want to wear a thong...(TMI??? whoops!)

Typically it's a half slip, but I have a wonderful full silk slip that I feel oh-so-girly in. That being said, my slip is easily from the 90s and in desparate need of a refresh...I actually am very interested in current suggestions that aren't polyester, itchy instruments of torture!

I'm just another see-through/clingy slip user. I just bought another one, actually. Half slips in black and white. I would use a full slip on certain dresses, but my permanent pregnant/nursing status prevents any dress wearing. bah

I also wear half slips when a clingy/see-through skirt or dress requires it. My mother always taught me to and I would be embarrasses to have legs silouhette in full sun.

That being said, I don't like slips so do try to find skirts that are properly lined and don't need a slip. Most of mine are of this variety.

I have one full slip which I wear with one adorable eyelet dress I have which is not lined, therefore showing off underwear if un-slipped. Otherwise, hate the full slips.

I wear slips. My mom, grandmother and great-grandmother (southern lady, bless her heart and rest her soul!) instilled in me the need for them when I was a wee little thing. I remember wearing slips under my church dresses if they my legs showed through even as a shadow.
These days, I'm not quite so anal about it, but I certainly wear slips under anything less than opaque, anything clingy, or anything that might get staticky (is that a word? it is now) and stick to my tights or hose.
I actually like wearing half-slips, especially if they coordinate with the other unders or if they are well-made full slips--they make me feel like a glamorous movie star of yesteryear. Which means the ones I have are nearly as old as I am. So much crap in the stores. I am so going to a vintage shop for the good stuff.
Ok...I'll shut up now.

I always hated slips and found they exacerbated static problems. Then I discovered an all-cotton half slip. I wore it until it fell apart. Haven't found another one and thus, do not own a slip anymore.

Now that I am done doing the baby thing, and will hopefully be finding some facsimile of my pre-baby body, I will renew my search for another cotton half slip.

I wore a half slip frequently when I was working outside the house. I worked at a stuffy law firm and panty hose were a must. So the slip helped with the clingy fabric vs. panty hose problem. I rarely wear panty hose any more and I try to buy skirts and dresses with lining (if there is a see-through issue). One thing I used to hate was wearing a skirt, half slip, and panty hose ... too many things around my waist.

It depends on the skirt/dress - and whether or not it's see-through...but I have to admit I HATE wearing one - skirts can be so casual and free-flowing - adding that darn slip just takes all the fun out of it :)

I also always wear a slip. I think that it is trashy if I can see your silhouette (individual legs, etc). I do not like my slip to show. I also wear one to make sure that there isn't that static problem happening. I hate it when I feel that my skirt or dress is glue to my legs.

I have always loved the look of a slip on a lady. It now symbolizes values we have lost and become arrogantly intellectual about. In other words, the values we place on our clothing has been dissapearing along with our social values. American men want a lady to be fully feminine and attractive. I havebeen looking oversears and noticed the major differences in women from there to the US. Foreign women appreciate feminine values to ther husbands and families and do not see it as paying a price for their values. They pay price for not having strong feminine values because they admit and love that it is in their God given design.

Hi, I'm Jackie and I always wear a half slip with a skirt even though I'm only 27. I wear a lot of calf length flared style skirts (usually black!) and I nearly always wear a long (calf length) very flared white half slip under them. Not only does it protect my modesty but I really do love the feel of a good quality slip next to my skin....I detest tights and pantyhose!! Sometimes my slip shows, especially when it's windy or I'm climbing stairs or on an escalator, but I don't mind at all. I know that most men find them rather sexy on a lady...my boyfriend certainly does. Long live the slip, I say. For me the slip will always be in fashion.

Thanks
Jackie

I'm weighing in on this way late, but I wear slips, with the exception of under a heavy fabric like denim. I grew up wearing a uniform to school, part of which was a slip, five days a week, then church on Sunday. Slips were a must. I think in our day and age we've gotten away from anything that might say "old-fashioned". Nylons included. Shave your legs and invest in the silkiest pair of nylons you can find for those dressier occasions. They feel really nice. Unless you've got five o'clock shadow and they are cheapo. I detest them in the hotter months of course. But slips, nylons and such just make a lady more modest AND classier. I have a great microfiber full slip that feels WONDERFUL against my skin. I do have some fabric sensitivity issues, as well as profuse perspiration, so I'm pretty choosy with what's next to my skin. I have seen one too many skirts or dresses going that were definitely see-through. Slips are not evil. If you can't find a nice one, or a pretty one (they are after all, lingerie), you could always dust off your sewing machines and make some. Slips are a good idea. Hubby thinks mine are sexy, too.

gI usually wear a slip under a skirt or dress because it hangs better and doesent cling. If I'm wearing hose (tights here in EU) I wear a slip, if not it varies. If it's a thin coton skirt then I will but if not I have some choice.

TBH I don't see quiet see what the fuss is about? OK when I'm wearing a dress there are occasions when perhaps I might wish not wear a full slip. But it's more the idea and of it and once it's on I forget about it, my dress hangs a LOT better, doesnt cling and I have a much more comfortable day.

The original question " does any still..." suprised me somewhat. It might indicate a fundamental difference between the EU and US? I don't tink age has any difference to do with it..I'm in my low 30's. Seriously I'd be interested in discussing these things further and the differences. So feel free to email me

I used to never wear a slip under my dresses or skirts, but one incident at my job changed my mind.

I started working at an advertising firm when I was 17. My miniskirt got caught on my desk and I didn't know it. When I got up from my desk, I heard an awful ripping sound. When I looked down, my miniskirt was torn at my hip, revealing my purple bikini panty. I quickly sat back down and tried to free my skirt, but it was really snagged. I started to cry. One of my co-workers came to my cubicle, saw what had happened and removed her slip for me to wear. I accepted, as I felt that a visible slip was better than a visible panty. My co-worker helped me free my miniskirt and then I put on her slip. I now felt I could finish the day with less embarassment.

Later that day, my future husband (who I did not like at the time) came to my area to check on the progress of his proposal. Even though I tried to not let anything be seen, he still did. He was very apolgetic and offered his jacket for me to cover myself. I thanked him and also noticed he did not turn to look until I had covered myself. I was not only impressed by his kindness but also his gentlemanly manners. My opinion of him started to change at this point. I showed him the corrected draft copy (he doesn't have the best use of grammar) that I was still working on. After thanking me, he kind of tripped over his words when he asked if I would like for him to escort me to my car at days end. I took a chance and sais okay (when the time came, he only did that. I'm serious! He did noting funny with me). After I was in my car, I gave him back his jacket and was about to leave when a thought occurred: I don't have anything covering my slip!!! I managed to get his attention and asked if he would mind following me to my apartment. He giggled, smiled and said it would be an honor for him to insure my protection. Once again, he only did what I asked. Once home, he escorted me to my apartment. When I was inside, I thanked him and he turned to leave. He did not get far as I touched his shoulder and kissed him on the cheek. Our relationship continued to grow stronger afterward.

I am now a much-wiser 23 years of age and have been married to this wonderful man for six years. We have a set of five year old twin daughters, a three year old daughter and a six month old daughter. ALL of our girls wear slips AND THEY LOVE WEARING SLIPS AS MUCH AS I DO!!!

I have looked back on my first 17 years and feel I was stupid for not wearing slips. I wear them all day long! I sleep in them (which my husband likes) and even wear one when I shower (which my husband likes). Because of this, I replace them frequently. Even my husband keeps me in a plentful amount of slips. He buys them for my birthday, Valentine's Day, Christmas and "Just because I Love You" Day (his own invention). He also does not object when I go to buy them. I LOVE Farr West slips that are sold at Dillard's (they are styled like vintage slips. VERY SEXY!!! So if anybody who works at Dillard's is reading this, DON'T STOP SELLING SLIPS!!!). We also buy our daughters slips at Dillard's. One twin likes the standard style lace trimmed and tea length slips while the other twin and our three year old adore (and cannot get enough of) the "big slips" (those that are tiered, very full and double layered). One twin wants hers replaced at the slightest indication of wear whereas the other twin does not want hers replaced until almost completely worn out. On numerous occasions she has brought me slips she has outgrown and are in a state of disrepair (small to medium sized holes in various places and battered lace hem trim) and has wanted me to make slips that she can fit into. I suggested to buy new ones and proceeded to throw her "ratty" slips out. She took them out of my hands and hand-sewn herself two decent slips, one slip that was barely wearable and one slip that was so tattered that I wondered if that one would ever hold up. She said she would wear them as playtime slips. She wore "the great rip" first, but when she put that slip on, it tore. Every time she sat down, a ripping sound came from under her dress. She decided to rip it to pieces (before I could) about 40 minutes after she finished making that slip. She has since decided it is best to replace her slips when they have lost their pristine white color and "...have become too rotten (by her defiition, "...too many small holes in the slip itself with the lace trim barely holding together").

I have also made a few "big slips" for me from Dillard's size 6 girls slips. I undo one seam on each slip and sew two undone seams on each side. I end up with a four-seamed slip that really makes my pleated skirts stand out (they also have a greater tendancy to "peek", which my husband cannot help but observe. These slips also give me assistance when I see something in a store I want. I just smooth my skirt from the side to the front (which will show my slip to him), then twist side to side so the slip shows even more. HE ALWAYS GETS WHAT I WANT AFTER I DO THIS!!!

Girls, you need to realize the power we have over our men when they see our slips! Over the past few decades, we have been concentrating on looking like men (wearing pants and sloppy shirts) and forgetting how to be a woman. No wonder many of us are neglected and thought of as something less than a human. If you think this is a bunch of bunk, listen to today's music. How many times have we been called "whores" (those who listen to rap, you know what I'm talking about)or been viewed as a gender who use others and have no regrets about doing so.

I am proud to instill a new tradition to our daughters. Women out there, you need to do the same. The very undergarmant I viewed for a long time as unneccessary I now see as me having an extremely flawed opinion. Wearing a slip elevates us in the eyes of society. It shows we are willing to take the time to care about how we look to others instead of coming across as lazy. If you doubt this, then think about it: You don't have to put forth much effort to put on the thing that MEN should be wearing instead of us. And if anybody wants to say that they wear pants for comfort, then the term "comfort" falls into the same catagory as "lazy", as skirts and dresses are very comfortable when a slip is worn underneath them.

I FOR ONE DO NOT DESIRE TO BE VIEWED AS SOMETHING LESS THAN I AM!!! When I wear slips, I am more confident about who I am. This is even noticed about our daughters. While I deeply regret those years I never wore slips, I am proud to be the advocate of their value to a woman and hope that ALL women will come around.

Praise God for women like Mindy! There is hope for this country when women like her are still around. She has hit many things on the target. Speaking as one of today's 22 year old males, these women DO spend more time looking like us. I do not see the appeal in seeing women wearing these painted-on-them pants or jeans that start 1/16 of an inch above their you-know-whats. My fiance' and I used to get into heated arguments when she puts this garbage on. I have told her how she is disrespectful to herself when she thinks she has to look like a slut. And some of these women are mothers who dress their daughters in the same crap. You cannot convince me that when I see 5,6, even 7 year old girls wearing this prostitute attire, that they have an income to buy it. Guess what, American women! THEY DON"T, BUT YOU DO!!! You cave into making your daughters look like a streetwalker in the name of a phony notion of fashion. It is disgusting! What are you thinking anyway? These things DO make a woman and LITTLE GIRLS look like, as a rap artist would say, a "whore" (a bullseye, Mindy). Or maybe you have heard other words that degrade women in the same way instead. One that comes to mind is "hoochie" (I have co-workers that listen to rap. That is how I know about what I say.)

One thing I do find interesting is this: where are the feminist groups? I have read about how in the 1960's groups like the National Organization of Women (N.O.W., for short) speaking along a diatribe of "how men view women as sex objects". How come at this day and time their faces are not seen on TV when some of my male counterpoints comment on how "hot" a woman looks when she is wearing the same disgusting attire mentioned above? Isn't this seeing women as "sex objects"? The N.O.W. and its like can't say they aren't aware of a similar attitude they were aware of 40 years ago. To say so suggests THEY WEREN'T AWARE OF THE ATTITUDE 40 YEARS AGO, which means THEY NEVER WOULD HAVE COME INTO EXISTANCE!!!SO, N.O.W. (and all else like you), WHERE HAVE YOU GONE? The thing you spoke against decades ago is still going on. It leads one to ask just what was the agenda of the fringe-feminista movement 40 years ago? As Mindy said, and I agree 1000 percent, it was to make women look, act, talk and even BE a man. In the process, the desire to pass on what it means to be a woman went in the trashcan, too.

I may be in the minority here, but so what. Maybe there are more men my age who think like me, but don't know how to say what is on their mind or maybe, in this age of political correctness, are afraid to. My daddy always said that a man should always keep his balls up front. As you can see, men of this age, MINE ARE!!! Where are yours? Don't you think a woman should think of, present herself and be above the status of a prostitute?


Mindy, your husband is a very lucky man. And from what you write, your husband worships the ground you walk on. I can proudly say, and give thanks to God for answering months of prayers, that my fiance' realized how much I respect her when I have said how awful she looks when she has dressed as "...something less than what [she] is (another bullseye for you, Mindy)." She realizes the value of wearing a dress or skirt and an even higher value of having on a slip underneath. She has seen the pride I have in her when we are together and has even admitted to me how much more modest she feels when she wears her slips. Sometimes she has intentionally let her slip show when she is around other women who aren't wearing one. This at first disturbed me, but when she said, and loud enough to where she was heard, that she wants other women to know that she enjoys wearing slips and letting them be seen tells those who is a lady and who isn't. You might say she puts a challenge to other women to be ladies, too. To feel that it is not immodest by failing to wear a slip shows a woman does not care about being a lady. My fiance', by not being afraid to show others she is a lady, rises above those who do not give a hoot about being the example of what an American woman (or a woman, period) is. When a woman does not care about being a lady, then she is saying she has chosen to be "...something less than what she is." God bless you both and God bless my future wife (she said yes to my proposal last night. So God has blessed me by showing the way to her.) And may, as you say and I agree, "...ALL women come around."

I love slips and wear them often. Perhaps it is because it is in my blood (my great grandparents designed and manufactured slips in New York City.) I inherited a huge collection of beautiful, vintage slips. Unlike those available today, these slips are breathtaking confections of smooth silk in every imaginable color adorned with handmade lace. I wear the shorter half slips under my skirts and save the full slips for bed!

Today I recieved a new petticoat with beautiful full ruffles and wonderful nylon insdie and out. I have a summer skirt that works perfectly with it and a sweater top. Thank you ladies.

Yes, Mindy, you have the right idea.

Slips really do add that touch of femininity. and if they show a little, whether though a slit in a skirt, or a wee bit at the skirt hem, what harm is there in that ?

A touch of femininity? Hmmm.. I suppose a bit maybe. I can't really say I feel much more feminine with a slip on.. it's just it helps make a skirt or dress more wearable sometimes. I've always worn half slips some of the time, particularly if I have nylons on but until last year had never bother with a full slip. I'm 35 BTW

For example, I have a couple of cotton knit dresses from Lands End. They are pretty casual and work great for my job where I don't really need to dress up as such but they fit that smart casual niche. The very first time I wore them it just didnt quite seem to hang right and clung to my nylons etc etc. I must admit the notion of a full slip kinda annoyed me at the time but if it made the dress work better and more comfy what the heck.

I have to say in retrospect it was all a bit of fuss about nothing. Most of my dresses work better with one underneath and now think nothing about it.

My husband is very big on my wearing feminine clothes so I wear skirts and dresses 24/7 and I would never go without a slip. Aside from the modesty issue they are just more comfortable.

I usually do wear a slip, particularly if my dress/skirt is a thin fabric or if I'm wearing nylons. I just find it works better and I hate my dress clinging. Most of mine are unlined and TBH even if they are it doesn't help much anyway.
I just want to be able to feel comfortable.

Like most women my age (20 years young), I didn't much care for slips except when wearing a see through skirt or dress. Now I want everybody to note the word DIDN'T. I have found how useful they are in many ways. While on a date with my fiance', I was wearing a very short skirt that was a bit transparent. I had on a vintage micro-mini full slip underneath. However, the skirt was a bit shorter than the slip, so my slip was always showing. My fiance' had never seen me wear one before, but he was very pleased. He kept playing with my slip most of the time we were on our date. I must admit I kinda liked what he was doing. Because of this I wear skirts more often and always a slip when I do. It is very fun (and somewhat naughty) to see my fiance's hand go to lift my skirt and see what lacy surprize he will find.

I think it is really great to see how many of us girls are opening our eyes to the advantages of slips. Speaking as one of the way-under-40-years-of-age girls (I am 19) I would like to add a question to this forum: have any of my fellow females tried wearing RIPPED slips? I do, and boy is it fun! Like Mindy showing her slip when she wants her husband to buy her something she wants, my husband is melted butter in my hand when he sees any of the following below my skirt or dress hem: dangling lace trim; bits of slip tatters; half-slips that repeatedly fall down from stretched out waistbands (these slips also have quite a few holes in them, too, as they are VERY worn out). I have even intentionally snagged my slips so they will get torn in his presence. Then he gets a triple treat: seeing the slip getting torn, hearing the slip getting torn and seeing the piece of torn slip show. In my full slips, he has witnessed torn bodices, ripped seams, frayed lace trim and torn away straps (many of my full slips have only one strap to keep them up; the rest have either one or both straps barely hanging on to the slip trim, and that being ripped where the strap is sewn). There was one time I gave my husband a fright. I was outside while Hurricane Ike was coming through last year. My skirt, blouse and one of my less-than-pristine slips were getting battered. This was fun to me, but my husband thought I was nuts. He kept telling me to come into the house (it is a made of brick), but I refused. I loved the thought of my clothing getting tossed around like that. He came and picked me up and carried me into the house. I went back out again when he put me down. This cycle was repeated four or five times. He gave up the final time I went back out. So while I stood there and let Ike abuse my skirt, blouse and slip, my husband watched. After a few minutes, I heard my skirt tearing apart. When I looked down, I also was observing my slip beginning to rip up. Next thing you know, pieces of my skirt started flying from it and my slip was shreading. I knew I had gotten myself in a mess when my blouse came out from the remains of my skirt and flew up to my neck, entangling my arms. Before I could see him, my husband had me in his arms, carrying me into the house again. This time I stayed inside. I never changed my clothes during the whole time Ike came through. At the same time, my husband's eyes were often fixed on me. He also held me closely a lot. VERY closely, if you get what I mean. Bottom line, all of my slips have varying degrees of damage, some minor, more major, most barely wearable. Yet I wear them, namely because when I do, my husband can't keep his hands off me. That end result (if you again get what I mean) is a justifiable reason to wear a slip, even when they are tattered, filled with holes, ripped to shreads or barely in one piece. Try wearing ripped slips, girls. You will enjoy the naughtiness that goes with it.

To Anonymous:

I have thought about what I do. Now here are some things you need to think about:

1. I am a slipaholic. I LOVE SLIPS! I LOVE WEARING THEM! I wear two, three and quite often four under my dresses and skirts. I wear the slips my fellow slip-wearing female friends throw out. I feel that just because a slip is worn out does not mean her usefullness stops. A slip "...suffer[s] the ignominy..." of being discarded before her time, and I repeat, they are fun to have on. If you have never worn a ripped slip so you can see what I mean, then you are not in a great position to say to me what I should think about.

2. Granted, I may be told about the condition I wear my slips by other women. However, most of them wear pants or jeans. To these I say a rather Mindy-esque remark: you dare to tell me how to be a womean while you are DRESSED LIKE A MAN? To the remainder who wear dresses or skirts, I ask them if I can see their slips. Nearly all have said they don't wear one. My response to them has been "I knew that already, because I can tell you what style, color and printed pattern are on your panties. I challenge you to do the same to me." Every time they can't, because I always wear a slip, even though she is rotten and ragged.

3. Be glad that I am a member of what I call "the vanishing class of the true American female". I know who I am by wearing what I wear. I am not a woman who thinks she needs to dress like a man in order to amount to anything. I work in the front office of a petrochemical firm (and I can't help to believe I'm called in on more projects and land more contracts than anybody else for a particular reason. After all, that suspected reason landed my husband).

Think about it, anonymous...please.

Hi, again, Melissa:
You say that you love Slips, that you love wearing them. You wear Slips that your fellow Slip wearing female friends throw out when they are worn out. I would say that when a Slip is worn out you should show it some respect for the hard, arduous work it has undergone. I know may be fun for you to have a worn out, tired, Slip on - just for your own amusement - but surely it deserves to fade away in less drastic circumstances than those you impose on it.
How can what you do to these Slips show LOVE for them, or that your wearing them in the way that you do shows LOVE ??

To answer the question, Yes I do wear slips, and have for 5 years. But it is just not about wearing a slip, It is about having a little class when going out into public, no matter if it is for a night out or just to work. ZZ Top has a song called, Sharp Dressed Man. This works for us also, and to get that sharp dressed man, You need to be a Sharp Dressed Lady.

If I wear a skirt with a liner which is rare now as I have given most of them away,then no slip. I gave the lined skirts away because now I find that I like wearing slips, but it can't be just any slip.

I have both full and half slips and have one on most of the time, even when sleeping. My slips have lavish lace and are made with the finest silk, satin, and nylon. Most are vintage made by Van Raalte, Lorraine, Greenco-Maid and Vanity Fair. I enjoy wearing them because of the way they feel on my body and the reaction I get from other people.

These reactions are mostly the same from the guys, and they are all good. From other women though, the reactions are good and bad, I have had to tell a few ummmm women? that I don't go that way, while others have asked that they go shopping with me, and some have reacted with anger, with a few even wanting to fight because the guy they were with was paying more attention to me than them, jealous I guess.

It's easy to attract the attention of the guys in a club while wearing a floral sundress on the dancefloor, the lace of a slip flashing at the bottom of the dress when the others have on jeans and t-shirts. and that is how I met the guy I married.

We have been together over 3 years. My Bill is a step above the rest, and a gentleman. About a year ago he told me the reason he was first attracted to me ,and that was because of the way I dress. He said he loves that I dress like a lady and my slips add a sexy edge to dressing like a lady.

After he told me this, I started wearing slips in bed. He can't keep his hands to himself and I'm not complaining, because sex has been outrageous. Yes, I do wear s slip, full or half during sex up to and during intercourse, but that is not the question.

Crist, You are not old for Your time, keep on wearing your slip and consider yourself a Classy Lady.

Hello again, anonymous.

It seems that we both are pretty strong in our opinions as far as what constitutes a slip and what the love for one is. I still contend that a slip is a slip until she is READY to be thrown out. I feel that if a slip can still be worn despite her condition, then so be it. I would rather wear a slip until her ABSOLUTE end then to discard her even if she has one more month left in her. I wear that slip for that month that is left, though she may be torn and falling apart. To me, love is not throwing something out before its' time. To love a slip means to WEAR HER TO HER ABSOLUTE END! After all, she will let me know when she wants to be discarded (small holes that increase in size during the day, a massive amount of those holes that join together to make really big holes, trim that tears loose on breezy days, ripping sounds when I sit, repairs that don't hold up, etc.) Then and only then do I ruin them. The slip that does any or all of these is saying "It is now my time. I can't be worn any more and do what I need to do effectively any more. Let me literally rip so I can figuratively R.I.P." Now I admit that I may not have made that last part known. I hope this gives you an idea of why I wear my slips to the condition I do and why I give them the "burial" I do.

It is amazing to see that there is a great deal of support for slips. This 21 year old female who has worn slips all her life feels this is a fantastic blogspot for those of us who still believe that part of being a woman is to wear slips under our dresses and skirts. I believe like Melissa in one aspect: slips are fun to wear. Personally, I like micro mini length slips. They can be found on vintage lingerie sites (1960s-
1970's era), ebay and in thrift stores. I have even made my own "...teeny little pretties (as my husband like to call them)from slips I or he have purchased. I can make 2 or 3 micromini slips from one long half slip (two if calf length, three if ankle length). All I do is add trim to two (the one made from waistband to a cut length of 12 inches, the other being the part cut from the first length, which also gets a waistband). The part of the original slip that has trim also gets a waistband. Usually my husband makes these micromimi slips (he rebuilt a discarded treadle machine. I love watching him sew on it. It's like he has a mindmeld with that machine.) I try on the slip that the new slips will be made from and tell him where I want the length (usually when done with trim added, the length is 13 to 14 inches). I do the same with full slips. I usually come out with a micromini full slip and half slip. But I have been known also to leave well enough alone, namely when I see a luciously laced vintage slip or petticoat from the 1930s, 1940's, 1950's or 1960's. There is no way I want to change the look of these slips because they are way to pretty (but they do tend to show a lot when I have my miniskirts over them, which Tommy does not mind. Neither do I when he touches and plays with my showing slip). But to the other part of Melissa and her ripped slips. I respect her right to wear them. She has reasons which are right for her. She should not be questioned as if she is doing something wrong. I, for one, am happy that in this day and age where women have abandoned their sense of sensuality for the sake of dressing like men and thinking they are happy about doing so (Let's face it. the women who wear pants go around moody, angry at the world and always have a scoul on their faces. What man would want to be around something like that?)Praise God there are women who still enjoy wearing slips, even if they are in barely-holding-together condition.

I wear a slip all the time, even during hot, humid Summers, and feel great when I do so. I love the feeling of their smoothness against my skin. They also are the best tool for getting the attention of my boyfriend. As a matter of fact, the way we met each other (we both were in seventh grade at that time) was from my slip. We both were in band and we both played clarinet. We were together in a practice room when I noticed him looking at my skirt. I stopped playing my music and asked him what he was doing. He appeared stunned and said "Nothing" and went back to practicing. I kept a watchful eye on him and sure enough, he started looking at my skirt again. I asked him "What?" and got this stumbling response from him: "What is that?"
the conversation went as follows:
"What is what?"
"That lace."
He pointed downward, nearly touching my skirt.I looked down and saw that my mom's old cocoa colored mini full slip I had borrowed was showing on the right side. So now I knew what he was looking at.
"You mean my slip?"
"I guess. It's pretty."
"Really? You like it?"
He brought his hand to my slip and started to touch it. I let him play with my slip for a bit and he did so very gently.
"This is the most beautiful thing
I've ever seen."
Throughout the day he hung around me. He carried my books, lunch tray, and at the end of the day, my instrument case. I thanked him for "...being my self-apointed servant" and started to get on my bus. He nervously said "Glad to be of help." I was on the second step when he folowed with "Will you be wearing one of those tomorrow?" "I could.", I said, and I did. I have ever since. My Jason is the most considerate boy I could ever know. We are both 15 now and he very responsible. as a matter of fact, he felt guilty about touching my slip the first time that he wrote a note to my mom about it. He asked her if she wanted to him to talk to her about it that he would. My mom told him that while what he did was wrong, she still admired him for telling her about it. She even asked me if I minded that he touched my slip. I said that the way he handled my slip was so gently that I felt okay with him doing it. What surprised us both is that mom permitted him to touch my slip. I have even been wearing only a "shorty-short" (a micro-mini slip) when he come over to help me with math and science. My mom said I should test him like this to see if his temptation level can be held in check. One day I was reaching for a glass. My dress and full slip went up, eposing my panty. he let out a whistle and I looked at him sternly. He apologised. Mom will not let us date until we are 16, and he is okay with that, because he "only sees himself with me." But in away we do date. He is at my house every day, so naturally he sees me in only my slips every day. We watch movies(he pops popcorn and "serves" me sodas), play video games, or do homework together. He cares so much for me that I gift wrapped one of my worn out, discolored, rotten old slips and gave it to him for a birthday present. He responded " I like this, but don't know what to do with it. If I return it saying I can't accept this, I will insult you. If I keep it, what will I do with it?" You will figure out something", I told him. He did. He put a home flagpole section on the back of his bike and he attached that slip to it. He proudly says that it is "...the flag of my girlfriend's clan, and I am honored to be the one chosen to bear her family's color." I love my slips, especially the "shorty-shorts" my mom has since let me have. They are cute and are very enjoyable to wear, even to girl friends when I have sleepovers. They all have said how much they enjoyed sleeping in them, that they are comfortable and even made them feel differently inside, that they now don't feel dressed if they don't have one on. I enjoy spreading the gospel of the slip. Every girl needs to know about how great the are and experience their wonder.

I don't know how many men have responded to this site, but I would like to put in my commentary. Girls, If you don't know how you can twist a guy around your finger when you let those bits of lace show below your skirt hems, then you are blind. My wife is an avid slip wearer. Long ones short ones and those lengths in between, she has them all. And for those of you who state you are not a grandmother and don't wear a slip because of this, let me clue you in on something. You apparently know your grandmother considered herself a respectable lady (now I dare any responder to this comment to say her grandma is not a respectable lady. Think about how you would insult your bloodline.). Because of how she viewed herself, she desired to be a lady in every respect, so she wore a slip. Now let me ask those of you who think that clothing yourself like your grandmother is "...out of style." If you don't like being like your grandmother, then you are saying you are not a respectable lady, and you say this in two ways: 1. "I don't wear a slip. That is for sixty year olds". If you don't wear a slip, you are definitely not your grandma, as she did wear slips. If you can't say she is less that respectable, then that puts you as something less than respectable, as you claim to not follow her lead. So if, by default, you choose to ignore your grandma's path, then what have you women chose to be? Let me clue you in: not worthy of men's respect as you do not desire to respect yourselves. This respecting of yourselves starts with wearing a slip. When you say you "...don't feel immodest, nothing is showing that shouldn't be...(See Amy's comment), then I have a counter claim: I have run out of places to count for all the time I have seen the outline of a woman's panties. This is something I have no desire to know. It is vulgar and disgusting. This can be prevented by the wearing of a slip. And don't think that wearing pants solves this issue. I guarantee, that same outline shows through them also. Now here is the challenge: if I were to walk up to you and say that I could name your style of underwear, would you slap my face? Why would you want to? After all, by not wearing a slip and letting such a thing be visible, haven't you given me permission to see it? Shouldn't you be doing something to prevent it if you don't want me to see such an outline? Think about it. Oh, by the way, my wife inherited a trunkfull of her great-grandmother's slips and petticoats. Some go back to the middle 1910's. They are in immaculate condition. She always has one on, namely the silk slips from the 1920's. These are probably the softest slips I could feel.

Some time ago, I explained to my physician that I could not figure out a way to stay comfortably warm in cold weather; either I wore too little, or layering left me overheated. My doctor suggested that I try wearing pantyhose; she explained that some construction workers wore pantyhose under their coveralls and that the nylons kept their legs warm without constricting movement. She also suggested that for my upper body I try wearing a slip. I tried wearing both garment types, and they worked. I did switch from panythose to a garter belt and stockings, which were ok, but finally found thigh highs the best for me. I then thought that wearing men's cotton jockey shorts with slips and stockings anomalous, so I changed to wearing satin briefs---thongs to me are absurd.

My lady friend was delighted with my "cross dressing" move. She likes sexy lingerie for herself, and together when we make love we slither around against each other in a very erotic fashion.

I have no problem with "male issues," such as loss of maleness, etc. I regret the current fashion wherein women go barelegged---it is like a man wearing a three-piece suit, with dress shoes, but no socks. As for slips, they are very sexy, erotic garments.

Hate this stuff about "I don't wear a slip because my grandma did......". Well she obviously had more sense and taste than you have dear.

So called 'modern and cool' women have overreacted to the detestation of the girly image by wearing footless tights, jeggings, ubiquitous black trousers, skirts with frayed droopy grey lining showing (YUK!), VPL and in many cases no underwear at all so that starving males can get a thrill from them showing their forest to the pervs on the escalator(elevator in the US).

All power to you, the liberated sisterhood, why on earth would you want to view an opinion from a mere pathetic and obsolete male.

OK, I'll tell you why; slips are inherently alluring and sexy - much more so than all of that waspie girdle and bondage stuff which seems to be in vogue.

An ordinary woman in a slip becomes attractive whereas an attractive woman without one becomes ordinary. Believe me it's true, I know a lot a of blokes who lament the demise of slip wearing girls.

I am a Man and personally I find Unattractive and somewhat disgusting (my personal opinion) for women to wear slips specially if it can be seeing on a skirt slit or on the lower portion of the skirt, it makes me get away from that woman.
So this is what I don’t get why women are so worried of legs outline while wearing a skirt when they wear Pants and SHORTS, isn’t that more revealing????? I totally don’t understand that but I guess because I am a Man that’s why.
If women are concerned about see-through then WHY wear Sheer Skirts and Dresses?????
From my point of view All women who DON’T wear slips and happen to somewhat see the legs outline are beautiful. Yes I repeat, in my opinion women who don’t wear slip are Beautiful.
I DON'T like it when Women/Girls wearing SLIPS at all, to me it is Disgusting and I feel nauseas when I see that.
My mother wears them and I have a very difficult time talking and or dealing with her when she wears them, I told her this but she doesn’t get it, it is very difficult for me to give her a hug and a kiss because of that I am being 100% honest, maybe I need some help but that’s the way I feel since I was 11 or 12 year old.
I wish those things (slips) NEVER Existed.
A Woman who don’t wear slips to me is the Perfect Woman and this has nothing to do with anything sexual to be very Clear about this subject.

I always wear a slip when the skirt or dress is unlined or somewhat sheer. It makes the garment look better and fit better. As far as not finding any pretty slips these days, it is so true. Try e-bay, I have tons of really cute vintage pretty sexy slips.

I would like to disagree with Sarg. A woman who wears a slip is MOST DEFINITELY more alluring and sexy than one who doesn't. When a woman wears a slip she is showing more concern about how she looks in public as well as private. Too many times I have seen the outline of a woman's panty. This to me is something a woman who respects herself first would not consider doing. Apparently Sarg would rather think of a woman as something less than who she should be. If his taste in women is that of a lesser woman, than that says a lot about him as a man.

By going the extra mile and doing something her female counterpoints do not do she becomes more of a complete woman. My wife never eliminates a slip under her skirts and she is more of a woman than I could ever describe.

I wear slips under all my dresses and skirts. It gives you a finished look and a finished feeling that is hard to beat. I prefer not to wear pantyhose, unless I am going somewhere formal like court or a job interview. Not to be a walking advertisement, but if you are looking for cute sturdy slips that can last the long haul, try anthropologie.com. They are IMHO a bit pricey but a worthwhile investment. I never understood why a woman had to act and dress like a trollop to be considered a modern feminist. And no, I am not a million years old, either - I'm 29, going on 60 it would seem ;) Best of luck - S. (Though I do wonder if you need to wear a bra under a full body slip -- what do you think).

I always wear slips and I strongly prefer form fitting full length silk slips with delicate lacework at the hem and bodice. I feel and know that I look very sexy wearing them and I get a lot of attention from both men and women! Oh, any by the way, I'm just twenty-five!

If you don't think slips have enormous sex appeal, I strongly suggest we all read through the comments on the web site "so long slips" and see how many of the girls on that site feel about the sexual nature of slips. As thirty year old who once never wore slips, now I always wear one and while I'm considered very attractive I'm sure my wearing slips under my garments, even very coservative clothing, gets me a lot more attention than would otherwise be the case.

Hi. My name is Colin and I am a 40year old man. I think that seeing a slip on a lady makes her look very feminine and sexy. The soft fabric and lace enhances the overall appeal of a woman to a man. I wish that slips get back into fashion so that we can see the glimpse of lace again that turned heads in the past. I know some of you think that they are old fashioned and not necessary any more. But, you all make an effort to look good on the outside with fancy skirts and dresses, why not a satin slip under to amplify the flowing movement of your attire. I know alot of guys who love them too so lets hoope at least some of you start wearing them. OK, end of rant.

Ever see Liz Taylor in the movie "Cat On a Hot Tin Roof" where liz wears a full length tight fitting full length silk slip? If one doesn't get excited by her in that slip than something other than blood is flowing through their veins. I'm a thirty year old married woman and considered very attractive but both me and my husband got excited by watching that movie, so I guess a beautiful woman wearing such a slip must be a sexy thing or I, at least, wouldn't have responded that way.

There is nothing that makes a female sexier than when she's wearing a form fitting tight full length silk slip. As a man I loved it when in my office the girls would all wear tight skirts that had a slight back slit that exposed the silky shiny and delicate laced slips there would all seem to wear. Incredibly I recently saw three college age girls smartly dressed in much the same manner with slips on all three and they were as sexy as hell. I could even see partly up their skirts as they were sitting in a food court having no idea I was mesmerized by those three very beautiful girls. Yes, the right type of slip is functional and is oh so sexy to the sight and to the touch.

Well, I didn't used to wear slips much (I'm 27 and they weren't big among my crowd I guess). But my boyfriend (now my husband) begged and begged me to wear one. I kept saying I didn't have any, and then one day he (somewhat shyly) presented me with a knee-length beige-gold colored half slip made by Farr West. It was absolutely gorgeous. I knew why he'd gotten it, and I did wear it for him and all, but in the process I ended up deciding I liked slips after all, and not just because of you know what. So now I have three, one cream, one black, and the beige one. Two are Farr West's "Vintage Bloom" line, with lace at the bottom, and the cream one is a bit more utilitarian, without the lace. I've also got a couple of their camisoles too.

I have many very short half slips which are great to wear under mini-skirts. I love full slips but find them a little too bulky to wear under clothing, so I wear them to bed! Full slips are a great replacement for a night gown.

The slips I like to wear are a bit unconventional. They are either worn out, rotten, discolored, slightly ripped or a combination of any of the above. I have a few that can be considered unwearable (practically in tatters) by any other woman, but these are excellent for when I work on an engine (I don't want to grime up nor rip one of my "good" slips. They are also useful when I need to wipe my hands or tools). These slips are also handy on a date. When one has outlived its use, I let my husband have some fun. I let him pull on the dangling lace trim or place his fingers in the holes (girls, there is nothing so exciting like seeing and hearing a slip in poor condition getting ripped). Once when we went bowling, I passed close to him. He reached for my battered and showing miniskirt slip. I felt a tug and heard it rip. I turned my head and saw that a piece of the slip was in his hand. I continued to walk to the lane and finish my turn. When I sat down, I examined the slip. On top of the missing piece, the slip had a dangle that was longer than any other. This longer dangle also contained a few hanging shreads. To make a long story short, for the rest of the night my slip lost piece after piece to his hands. Even while he was driving my slip was not refusing being defeated. By the time we got back the house, the only part left of my slip was the waistband and a few pieces still attached to it. I told him to "why not go ahead and finish the job." Not long after, he started battling the the waistband. AFter much frantic and explosive yanking, it snapped and it ripped through a piece of slip still attached to the waistand. What happened next was GREAT!!! So yes ma'm, having slips in a state of disrepair is indeed a good thing to have. You may want to try it.

Mellisa - I feel like the only reason why you wear slips is because it turns you into a sex object. Which is degrading.

Meagan - That is probably the most adorable story I have ever heard.

I'm 19 years old and I generally dress very casual. However, when I do wear dresses or skirts I wear slips if need be. It's not to try and look sexier or as sign of feminism. I feel that we as a society have not forgotten about what it is to be a woman but more so we've forgotten what modesty is. You could be the best dressed female in the room but it doesn't matter unless you carry yourself like a lady. Even in jeans and a t-shirt you could be a lady. And a lot of being a lady is modesty.

A slip is an undergarment. It is just like panties. I would never walk out of the house showing underwear or too much cleavage. Why would I show my slip?

When this blog started out, the fashion mavens who only look at slips from a practical viewpoint, had their moment in the sun. Thankfully, those who see the slip as the sexiest undergarment in a woman's lingerie arsenal, have brushed aside these boring naysayers LOUD & CLEAR!! No doubt if the Van Raaltes, Vanity Fairs, Lady Lynnes, Wondermaids, Vassarettes, etc from yesteryear were hanging in the stores today, they wouldn't be hanging there for long.

To all you ladies who say you own and occassionally wear half slips, before you completely distance yourself from full slips, please try the following.

1. Put out of your mind any pre-conceived opinions you have about full slips.
2. Go to an online vintage clothing site, ebay, or vintage clothing store and select 1 or 2 very lacy and very silky full slips in your favorite colors.
3. Draw a bath and luxuriate in sensuous bubbles.
4. Slip into your new vintage slip (a Van Raalte Opaquelon or Satin Suavette would be perfect for this exercise).
5. Slip on some lacy thigh-highs and sling-back heels, stand in front of a full-length mirror and admire a beautiful, ultra-feminine you.

If you don't think you look gorgeous, maybe I can interest you in a pair of vintage boxer shorts and a man's tie.

I always wear a slip unless the dress is lined. I find that my dresses hang much nicer, don't cling to me and you then can't see through them. I have read that many can't find the nice slips from grandmas day. Those are the only slips I will wear because they are shaped. Problem with slips today is they are a huge rectangle and the dress doesn't fit correctly over the slip, and we girls just aren't shaped that way. Google Vintage Slips. you will find them, and some are a bit pricy, but totally worth it.

Seriously. I've been collecting slips since the begining of their demise back in the late 80's. I have about every shade under the sun, in every style, from almost every maker. I have slips from Japan, Maylasia, France, Poland, United Kingdom, Canada & Austrailia. All of them are nylon. I have about 3000 of them. I used to have more, but I sold a huge bulk lot of about 1000 a few years back when i was unemployed. But now it's back to business. So if any of you ladies would like a nice sexy slip for work or play; just drop me a line at secondhandslipshop@live.com, or visit my Etsy store at TheSlipShoppe.

What are you calling them when you "forbid them" from wearing the garment that gives them this distinction? If I was your wife or daughter, I would find you "DISGUSTING"!!! You insult us and think you have the right to! Personally, I LOVE SLIPS and I wear them every day!! If you see all women who wear slips as "disgusting", I hope you are not saying you feel your mother is "disgusting". She should slap you!!! And I would sell tickets to that event! I thank God my husband is not like you, for he loves seeing me wear my slips. Maybe you should be more of the man he is.

Wow. Been reading n I'm happy to find out the slip is still being accepted by people of whom started the "Women's Lib" thing. I'm also impressed about the "turn of events" in Mindy's life n how happy she is now. Meagan n others who love the slip, U Women make me proud. I'm African n I love the slip, half or full. My fiancee wears them with a camisole whenever she comes to stay over at my place. I actually converted her into wearing it n she loves it now. Sometimes she wears them out when we go out at night. I also did to my exes n they confess they love it also. To the Women out there who don't wear slips, well I'll say, "SHAME! SHAME ON U!!!" U want to dress "bold" yet lose the power U have. Dressing like a Man doesn't make U powerful. It only opens U up n makes U look like a "BITCH, WHORE" n other words rappers use(I'm a Musician so I'm familiar with those words). Soft is appealing, powerful, sexy n strong. Not just wearing slips but doing away with all the "pants n stuff". Skirts, dresses with the slip helps U cover up well. Some guys also complained they hate the slip n consider it "disgusting". Brother, SHAME ON U!!! How dare U call ur Mum n Grandmum disgusting? Also threatening them not to EVER wear a slip? And U want ur daughters to grow up dressing like a slut? Well, God help U. Think U need a counsellor n need to go for therapy. Also, I think U had a nauseating experience with a dirty slip while U wear young that scarred ur mindset over the slip. I'd rather say U outgrow it. Go for therapy n U'll be free. Someone also complained Africa is hot. Our "decent" women wear slips n we don't "burn out". Except for the ones who copied the "fallout of decency" from the west (I'm sorry to say this but it all started in the USA), lots of women here in Africa wear slips a lot both for official n casual functions n our women are respectable. For some who love wearing ripped slips under their clothes, for God's sake don't U feel ridiculous? Can U also wear ragged bikini/panties? I don't believe this. Pls give urself some respect n dress better. To wrap it all up, pls Women, wear the slips or else we Men will take it up n wear them under our robes n kilts and guess what, we won't look as "silly" as U all look when U wear our pants LMAO!!!

I know the original blog post is a few years old, but I just found it today and I love it! With the exception of few of my skirts and dresses that are lined, I always wear a full slip or half slip and camisole under my dress or skirt and blouse. I, too, share the desire maintain some modesty as part of being classy. I also love the way they feel against my skin, especially if I'm not wearing hose or stockings and if I am wearing them they help reduce the static cling. Plus, I have no desire for folks to be seeing through my skirt or dress and I definitely hate VPL! Full slips also make for great nighties. They can also be super cute, so you can use wear one to drive your man wild. With all this in mind I see no downside to wearing them. But I also know it's a matter of personal preference, so if others don't like them I understand. But for me I will wear slips for the rest of my life.

Hi, I'm a 62 year old guy, not a dirty old man, here in the UK and I am seriously considering starting a campaign to bring back the slip. It's not an old fashioned idea, I have just become more aware that by young and older ladies choosing to do away with a slip, depending on the type and style of dress or skirt, it is unflattering, irrespective of size and shape but most definitely unfeminine. I was trying to find out if there was an actual start date when, rather than burning their bras, they burnt their slips. Please don't receive this as a sexist comment, I just think the slip is a very feminine and necessary accompaniment with certain styles worn by every lady. It is a beautiful piece of lingerie, both functional and very sexy. I really don't think it is a step forward. Where should the trend back of the slip come from, the younger generation, let them make a fashion statement for others to follow. Victoria Beckham did it for a hairstyle, which just does not suit everybody, I'm afraid. Get somebody to send her one, gratis, she's no fool and put this new look in the magazine.

Very best wishes

James

PS. Hope I didn't offend anybody. What do I know, I'm English!
