Probably the most over-looked piece of lingerie today is the slip. However, if your outfit calls for one and you forgot to put
it on, look out! The world will be seeing more of you than you intended.
A slip is a very helpful garment to have in your wardrobe. For example, if an unlined wool dress makes you itch, a slip between you and the dress can make wearing it bearable. Or, if you have a sheer skirt and don't want your silhouette to show through, a slip is just the trick. A slip can also smooth the lines of a clingy knit. Slips aren't just for your grandmother.
Finding Your Personal Slip Size
The traditional slip as we know it is called a full slip. In fact, several years ago, full slips were being bought and worn as dresses in the summer. These slips almost always have adjustable straps and can be as decorative or plain as you like. Sizing for these slips comes two ways: dress size (e.g. size 8 dress, size 8 slip) or bra band measurement (e.g. 34C bra size, 34 slip size).
The half slip is very popular. It begins at the waist with an elastic waistband and comes in varying lengths depending on the skirt length you wear. Sizing for a half slip is based on your hip measurement:
Half slips come in a variety of lengths. Depending on the skirt lengths you wear, it is a good idea to have more than one half slip in your wardrobe. Half slips are based on an average 5' 4" woman. If you are taller, you may need to buy the next longest half slip.

Strapless and Bra Slip
This style is a full slip with a built-in bra, which can be strapless or underwire. It can also include a padded or push-up bra with straps. Tailored Slip
A full slip with very tailored lines. This slip gives a smooth line under knits or clingy fabric. Many times this style has a "non-cling" treatment given to the fabric. Lacy Full Slip
As the name indicates, this is a slip with lavish lace trimmings. This slip can even be worn as a dress, but is most popular with sheer blouses with some detail showing through. Chemise
A flirty little mini full slip that comes in a length that hits between the top of the thigh to the middle of the thigh. This style is perfect for short skirts, asymmetrical hemlines, or skirts with slits. Stretch
A full or half slip with Lycra that provides a smooth line and some shapewear support. The stretch may be in the bra, bodice or all over. Great for wearing under body-conscious knits. Pant Liners
This is basically a slip for pants. It looks like pantaloons with an elasticized waist. This is a great solution to pants with no lining or sheer pants that need something to prevent visible panty lines.
