A: I am SO glad you asked! Ladies, dressing is all about leaving something to the imagination; no one wants to see your underpants in the light of day! It may seem a little old-fashioned, but to avoid an impromptu peep show I recommend wearing a slip. Not the itchy kind with a petticoat you remember from your childhood, but a form-fitting, convertible one about knee-length that can add a layer of opacity to those sheer summer dresses. In lightweight, curve-friendly fabrics, slips can also provide a smoothing effect (I would avoid lace, piping or other types of trim if you plan to wear it under a thin garment). With shoulder straps that can be worn normally, removed or worn crossback or halter-style, you’ll find that a slip is a versatile, must-have undergarment. Two to try? Assets by Sara Blakely’s Fantastic Firmers Full Slip ($42-44) and Vassarette’s Body Curves Full Slip ($16.99); both come in black in and nude, and both are available at Target.
