I wish I could have her back, especially for that reason
I do have a couple of slips, but none of my dresses or skirts require them now. All of my skirts that are sheerer, have linings in them, and a couple have built-in slips. I think most are made that way now. Back in the day however, yes, I definitely wore slips. Had nothing to do with being "sexy" however. Never heard of that perspective.

Yep. I'll wear a slip if the skirt/dress needs one, but I'm not at all doing it to be titillating. Quite the opposite, actually.

My wife is Japanese too (こんにちは、SEAandATL!) and she wears slips when her skirt is very thin or doesn't have a lining, and stockings/tights/pantyhose 95% of the time, switching from the thin fabric and pale/beige colors in the summer to the thicker kind and black/dark colors in winter.

Very occasionally, on the hottest of days, she'll wear knee socks instead of stockings. When she does that, her legs (her knees in particular) look much less shapely.

She's only about 5' 3" and thinks her legs are too short and not thin enough, but with the way she dresses, she looks absolutely fantastic; it pushes her over the bar from being ordinary (sorry!) to having just the right balance of casualness and class. I won't exactly say that she turns heads, but if she went around with bare legs all the time (or, god forbid, flip-flops!), she wouldn't be as attractive. People -- probably unconsciously -- seem to straighten out their behavior when they're around her, and her look is a part of that.

If I had my way, her skirts would be a little shorter, but I certainly can't complain!

Too broad of a statement about women... My friends (including millennials, Gen X, Baby Boomers and members of the Greatest Generation) and I wear slips (full or half slips,) depending on the sheer-ness of the material of the dress or skirt.

Pantyhose or stockings in the cooler weather, no hosiery in the summer.

Actually that's already the plan. The only problem is its not going to be soon because of the distance (she's in Georgia and I'm in Virginia).

You and your friends all live in Atlanta? I love how Georgia peaches dress. Growing up there could be what got me into the whole slips and pantyhose on women. It all started with my 2nd grade teacher.
