PostHeaderIcon Whatever happened to the slip?

I never see them anymore. My Mother has dozens of slips in all colors, styles, and lengths in her lingerie drawers. I think her generation still wears them. The feminine petticoats of old are fading away into extinction.

I don’t believe my daughter owns one.
I vaguely remember her wearing one years ago as a skirt!
Personally, I haven’t worn a slip in years; neither have many of my girlfriends.

Styles, fabric and clothing have changed over the years lessening the necessity for the slip undergarment. Although the dress is here to stay, women are of course wearing more stylish pants suits for business and pleasure. Finally, it eliminated the saying of these four words to a woman, “your slip is hanging!”
