Ever since the 1940’s women have been wearing slips underneath their dresses for a number of different reasons. One of the most prominent reasons in the 40’s was modesty. A slip helped the women who wore it keep their undergarments hidden from the general public. Certain dresses can be easily seen through. A slip can either be full length, meaning that it has thin straps which hang on a woman’s shoulders and it covers the entire length of her body, or it can be a half-slip that goes around her waist. Women also discovered that a slip could prevent her from experiencing chaffing from her dress, and slips also helped the dress to hang more smoothly.
While the women of today still receive the same benefits from wearing a slip that women did in the past, they have discovered another benefit. Today there are many slips that are specifically designed to help women to achieve a more ideal shape.
The slip will hug the woman’s body in all of the right places creating that ideal hour glass figure without the necessity of spending hours at the gym. These undergarments are incredibly comfortable and form fitting. They can provide support for the woman’s body, and smooth away any unwanted curves or rolls. Women who have a slip like this will be able to accentuate their body’s natural curves, and feel more beautiful in any dress.
