I was brought up that a lady always wears a slip.  I won't wear one if my dress or skirt is made of a heavy fabric and lined, otherwise I wear a half slip.  I buy mine from Macy's.  I have black, white and cream in different lengths that I have acquired over the years.  I think part of the reason they fell out of favor is when shapers became popular.  Shapers can't help hide the silhouette of your legs though.  Now we have gone through a generation that haven't worn them.  I'm afraid they are considered old fashioned to many women.  Too bad, as sometimes they really are necessary.  

 

I don't have the cling problem because I haven't worn pantyhose in over a decade, but I do remember back when I did.

I got this for $24 and it is a Vanity Fair. I don't know how good this brand is any more. I haven't worn a dress in decades. I have bought 4 of them this year..Things change @Trinity11  and so do people. I wouldn't touch a dress for a long time. Now, I wonder why not?


@cherry ...Talbots had some beautiful dresses in their last catalogue. I bought one.

@cherry It was from the Friends and Family catalogue ..pg. 55, the Painterly floral Fit and Flare dress. It was a long time since I bought a dress and I wore it on my birthday.

I've always worn a slip under dresses and skirts.  I'd feel naked w/o one!  

 

In recent years, I bought all mine at JCP.  I have a few that I that are made specifically to wear under knits.   

 

Vermont Country Store is another good place to buy them.

I haven't worn one in years, but when I did wear them I wore half-slips.

Re: I bought a slip today

[ Edited ]

The last time I wore a slip was under my wedding gown, 26 year ago this month

Found  black, white and taupe half slips at Kohl’s.....and found white ones in different lengths at Macy’s.

 

wear them in the summer under my sheer maxi tank dresses....cooler than slacks or shorts !
