Default Slipped???

I was waiting on someone in the store a while ago, and she wanted to go get a half slip before she tried her dress on....That leads me to the question..Do you even own a half slip? Going even farther..a FULL SLIP??
I have not had a half slip in years...A full slip, I couldn't remember that far back

Neither do I. Cammisols take the place of slip tops now.

I don't think that I have worn a slip in 20 years.


How about girdles--------who wears those?

I confess, if the dress or skirt is not lined, I will always wear a slip. I can't help it. My dear mother would roll over in her grave if I didn't wear a slip -- it just isn't proper! I also have a hard time not wearing nylons with a suit when wearing closed-toe shoes. Change does not come easily for me.

I have the whole bag of tricks. I wear slips because some of the fashions today are almost see through. Its just not right to go to work showing what you have. I also don't want the back of my skirt sticking to me when I get up from sitting down for a while. The slips also help the skirts hang better IMO. No contant tugging down and putting in place.

I own several half-slips of various lengths.
Some of my summer skirts are pretty sheer.

I don't have any full slips ... but I have 1/2 slips in every length and color. I would never wear a dress without one! I guess it's just what you're used to

I own three half slips, no full slips. Can't remember when I last wore a half slip. I rarely wear skirts.

I don't remember ever owning a full slip, and although I own a half slip, I can't remember the last time I wore one, but then I don't wear dresses very often in my line of work. The only time I dress up is on a cruise, and even then, I HATE pantyhose so usually go barefoot. Going barefoot is a little hard in our winter climate however....maybe that's why I don't wear dresses!

I agree with Dina - half slips make the skirt hang better. I've got a long one and a short one in both nude and black - no longer own a full slip and haven't in many years. I remember in high school wearing a girdle every day - and I weighed 115 in those days! My, how times have changed.

Yep, I'm with Dina about the hang. I own half and full slips in black and white. Almost always wear hose if I'm "dressed". Even beneath slacks the panty hose make them fit better, unless I have on my spanx and then i may just wear knee highs.

At last count I had at least 40 half slips -- every length, color, lace, no lace, slits, no slits, etc.!! I wear them whenever I wear skirts or dresses, and with some sheer skirts I will even wear more than one half slip at a time. I have to admit I wish more women wore slips -- they DO make a difference.

gambitscuba,

I have one half sleep...

A "half sleep"... Isn't that what you get when you finish packing for a cruise at midnight and have to be a the airport for departure at 5:00 AM???

Default Slips

With all due respect girls (myself included!) we are dating ourselves by the ownership/memory of slips!! I think my last full slip was in middle school and I do own a couple of 1/2 slips. I never wear them! The worst part is hearing my departed Mom saying in my head whenever I wear a skirt...."put a slip on!" I say let's give the slips the slip!!!

Dated or not, I cannot wear sheer or even semi see through dresses and skirts without a slip. Its just not worth the risk of blinding someone.
lol.

I have half slips in black, white and nude with two lengths in each color. If I wear a dress, I wear a slip...even in the middle of a Louisiana summer! I don't feel dressed without one. And, I don't wear a dress that I can't wear pantyhose with. My legs are so white with spider veins everywhere, I just can't subject people to that. Plus, going without a foot covering makes my shoes smell.

I have not worn a slip or girdle for many years, and rarely do I wear skirts or dresses.

I still prefer hose with closed-toe shoes. I do not like to put bare feet into
them. However, I'm always barefoot with sandals. I do keep up my pedi's.
