Perhaps you bought a sheer dress intentionally or maybe you only realised that something was see-through the first time you wore it (we've all been there). Whatever your situation, an under slip for your best dresses remains one of the most useful solutions to a myriad of wardrobe problems.

Not only do under-slip dresses offer extra coverage, but they can also provide a smoothing layer underneath whatever you're wearing. This is particularly handy if you're wearing fabrics like satin or anything prone to static.


Solution wear (aka shapewear lingerie) has taken on a new meaning of late - thanks to brands like SKIMS and Lizzo's recently launched label Yitty. It is all about empowering rather than concealing. So, whether you're looking for an under slip to match your skin tone, one to wear under your favourite summer dress for an extra layer of confidence (particularly great for one the weather isn't playing ball and you want extra warmth) or even a luxury silk slip for special evenings, there are plenty to choose from, whatever your budget.
