Slips Are Back… and Trending ~ Shadowline
Shadowline’s Director of Sales, Laurie Fisher recently shared how pleasantly surprised she was with the increased volume of SLIP orders she took at the Curve Lingerie Show in NY! “I was told by a number of buyers that slips are trending again in a big way. Not only for mature, traditional customers but for young women too”!
Back ‘in the day’ women wouldn’t dream of not donning the essential full slip before leaving the house. Egad! Her legs might show through her dress. How times have changed.
Today, a slip is so versatile – designed not only to be worn under clothing, many women also enjoy having a bit of the lace peek out at the neckline or hem. The trend of wearing satiny slips as sexy outerwear has indeed been in vogue for some time. They really are quite practical as well. The smoothing nature of a slip will help camouflage bra straps and panty lines and it’ll prevent clothes from clinging to the undergarments. Some sheer outfits truly benefit with the wearing of a slip, and for bedtime, who can deny that slips are simply divine to sleep in, so luxurious and silky to wear under the covers!
Shadowline offers a tremendous selection of slips in many fabrics, colors and lengths in both full-length and half. Plus, you’ll find camisoles, culotte slips, long pant slips and slip shorts.

Laurie is definitely on to something here! Slips ARE coming back into vogue, slowly but surely. I have been saying this for a couple of years now as I am a seller of fine vintage slips and I can clearly see an upward trend. That, of course, is fabulous news! We’ll never be going back to the near-obligatory slip wearing days of the 40s, 50s and 60s of course, but women are definitely turning away from the almost androgynous styles imposed on us for so long in favour of re-embracing true glamour. Thank you to Shadowline for not only highlighting this exciting trend, but also never giving up on beautiful and delightfully feminine lingerie. The Shadowline lingerie in my vintage stock are amongst the most precious I have! Kind regards, Emma
