Because they are usually categorized by length from waist to hem, it's easy to find the right half slip for your wardrobe. A 16' half slip is among the shortest offered and usually falls to high or almost mid thigh, perfect for short skirts and dresses. For close-fitting or knit skirts, look for smooth microfiber 16 inch slips with clean lines and a body-lining silhouette. For clothes with looser more flowing lines, consider a luxurious silk or nylon lace-trimmed half slip. Many of these have versatile styling with a slit that can be worn in the from, the back or on the side.
