A Guide to Women's Slips

Slips were originally worn to keep body oils and perspiration from getting onto clothes. They may seem like a thing of the past, however, more and more women are looking for slips to wear with their clothing. Women's slips are undergarments worn underneath dresses or skirts. Today, slips add a layer between itchy clothing and skin. They're also worn for modesty and can help provide shape to clothing. When you're ready to achieve a smooth, comfortable foundation, peruse our wide selection of women's slips. Our full and half slips create the perfect fit under any skirt or dress!

Women's Slips vs. Chemises

Women's slips and chemises may seem similar at first glance, but there are a few differences that you may notice. Women's chemises are short, sleeveless nightgowns. They're often worn as lingerie underneath formal clothes, but mostly as sleepwear. Women's slips, on the other hand, can be worn underneath clothing or as part of your outfit. You can also wear a slip that shows by pairing the color and style to your ensemble. For example, a brightly colored seamless slip will have a chance to shine through a sheer dress. Alternatively, a decorative slip can peak out the bottom of a mini dress.

Types of Slips for Women

Slips fall into two main categories: a full slip and a half slip (waist slip). A full slip hangs from the shoulders, usually by means of narrow straps, and extends down either to the upper thigh or below the knees. On the other hand, a half slip is held by means of an elastic band and hangs from the waist down. As an alternative to the full slip, waist slips are often worn with a matching camisole. Other types of women's slips include:

Tips for Wearing Slips Underneath Dresses

Finding a slip can be difficult. Some women may want a slip with body slimming qualities, while others prefer a style to wear with see-through cotton and linen fabrics. When shopping for women's slips, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Look for flesh-colored or neutral tones that can be worn with various light-colored outfits.
  • Try to avoid slips that move around or ride up.
  • Consider slips crafted from sweat-wicking and moisture-absorbing material to keep you cool and prevent your dress from clinging to it.
