For your longer skirts and dresses, the 24 inch half slips will be just the right length. Measuring about 24"" from waist to hem, this length will hit most women at or slightly below the knee. For sheer clothing, look for a slip with simple lines and minimal adornment. Some 24"" half slips are cut close to the body to create a smooth silhouette. You can also find 24"" slips embellished with lace and made of luxurious silky fabrics. Almost all contemporary half slips are fabricated from anti-cling materials, such as nylon with a touch of spandex for shape. This guarantees your clothing will glide over the slip, creating a polished look and clean lines.
