I wear a half slip whenever I wear a dress or skirt, unless it's lined. I'm not crazy about the fabric of my dress clinging to my legs or riding up - the slip prevents that.

I have them in about a half dozen colors, in cotton and nylon, and in two or three lengths.

Obviously you know nothing about women, fashion or women's fashions ...

Wow! I'm glad I came upon this thread- I actually forgot about slips but I think I have a couple in my drawer that should fit my now that I've lost some weight- should help with some of my clingier dresses that are not lined. And I never heard of slip shorts- but I am going to try some of those!

One day, I wore a particular dress to work. It was flowy, and came down somewhere between my knees and ankles. A bunch of us were on our break, and I was standing kind of close to a revolving door.


First, a gust of wind blew the front of my dress up over my head. I quickly pushed it down with my hands, and in the process, bent forward a little bit. Then, a couple of guys (strangers) came through the revolving door, which created a bit of a wind gust, which pushed up the back of my dress.


I learned a valuable lesson that day. Wear SOMETHING under a dress you won't be embarrassed for everyone to see. LOL Believe me, everybody saw everything that day. I almost quit my job over it. LOL
I about swallowed my gum. How hysterical. What a want to die experience.

Nah, I beg to differ. Im pretty sure you'll find a LOT more slips in church than you would in the clubs/bars or restaurants. Also, I think you'll find a greater percentage of slip wearers to be in the high end of the BMI range as well.

But what do I who live in Los Angeles and frequent many fancy restaurants, clubs, red carpet events and movie premiers. Those are places where you'll find women who definitely DONT have their fingers on the pulse of what is in FASHION.

To answer the OPs question, at least from a guy's perspective on all the women he's ever dated, not a single one of them wore slips. NONE OF THEM!!

When I was young, my mom insisted on a slip. I don't think those are done any more, nor are they practical for a sundress. I bought "slip shorts" and used those, and they worked out pretty well, but I wondered what my options are.
Also, pantyhose aren't really a thing any longer, are they?
I won't buy the dress if it has thin transparent fabric.

As far as what I wear under it, well, underwear of course. I despise panty hose, I will only wear them to special events.

Do you frequently ask women what type of underwear they are wearing? If worn properly you would not know if a woman was wearing a slip or slip shorts.

I am a woman in my mid-30s, and I have NEVER worn a slip. I literally don't think any of my friends have worn one either. I thought this died out decades ago, with pantyhose. I'm with you Kings Gambit... I had no idea.

I wear underwear under my dresses, thee end. If they're too sheer, I don't buy them. But, I generally don't have an issue with sheerness. I have about 15 sundresses and none of them need slips.

Agree. I'm in my early 40s and haven't worn a slip since Easter, 1978.

I also don't know anyone that wears them anymore.

They are pretty much extinct as well as pantyhose.

Do you not wear hose at all?

I haven't worn a dress in ages. When I wore dresses to work, I wore pantyhose. Now what is the thing? Without hose, I would think my feet would stick to my shoes.

I can't imagine thee would be a connection between slips and BMI. They aren't shape wear.

We aren't part of a conservative religious sect, the women in my family aren't large, yet we wear slips. Perhaps women on the West Coast are less likely to wear them. I remember trying to buy one in a brick and mortar store when I lived in LA, and I had trouble finding one.

They are great for dealing with sheerness and static cling.
