Petite Slips?
Sometimes tights and/or underwear will always dig in enough to show through your dress. It's not an issue of the wrong size because bigger tights still have those evil, constricting waistbands (and, if you're anything like me, now the legs are a foot too long) and bigger underwear is obviously baggy. Sometimes, modest summer skirts suddenly become a whole lot more revealing when the light shines through them a certain way.

What do average-sized women do? Buy slips, of course! It's not worth having such beautiful dresses and skirts only to leave them hanging in the closet because your bloody underwear makes your beautiful knit dress or whatever outfit look ugly. Alas, I am not an average-sized woman. I am petite at only 5'2". I have scoured multiple countries in Europe for half and full slips that would be short enough not to hang out from under my skirts and dresses. The vast majority of slips are 20 inches from natural waist to hem. On the models, it looks short enough. Only a few inches below their crotches. On me? It hits my knees. Useless, since most of my hemlines fall halfway down my thighs or a few inches ABOVE my knees.

Do petite-friendly full and half slips exist on this Earth? Is there a place where I can order them online? I actually have 0 faith there are any, but I won't know for sure unless I bother asking. Don't worry about confirming my pessimism. I have been banished to the children's section so many times, all it will cost me is an eye roll.

if a slip is too long i just cut it...
since it is underneath the clothing and is usually a manmade fabric that doesn't unravel-ie- nylon...i often don't even bother to hem it...
