i love slips too!

i only own a few- and in fact they have come with the dresses or bought together, because alot of the lovely transparent floaty fabrics allow light to fill...and er expose..

i find that having the fit of the slips to be exactly to size (like a glove) and in the colours of nude for "light" coloured fabrics and navy blue for "dark" fabrics covers all bases, and achieves a really nice streamlined effect where people aren't distracted by undergarment clashes.

God I love slips, I'd wear them as dresses if I could ever find one that fits! I have the figure of a 12 year old boy so needless to say most slips I come across don't quite fit. Does anyone know a good place to buy xx-small slips that could be worn as dresses? BCBG had some nice slip dresses but weren't in my size....

if this in the wrong forum I'll delete it, any suggestions would be much appreciated

I love slips and wear it almost every day.
Most of the clothes I wear are vintage dresses and they are made with the intention that the wearer will wear a slip as well.
And also it is very comfortable with a silk slip under an itchy dress.

these two are from twilfit, i have the pink one.

I wear slips every now and then, most of the slips I own are vintage. Sometimes I wear them as intended, other times worn as a dress (layered over another slip).

Carrie Bradshaw wore numerous vintage slips on SATC, I have always thought they were so feminine and pretty.

Those are gorgeous - I wear slips, but not often enough!

I wear black slips as skirts on a semi-regular basis with tights and a longish top. I don't find it all that offensive, I'm covered and everything. I do laugh at the irony of our generation, wearing it on the outside instead of something to be hidden. Although I think it has a bit more class than the "look it's my bra" trend.

There is a shop here in Seattle called Pretty Parlor that makes cute slips alongside their reworked vintage pieces!
