Is a lacy nylon slip the sexiest item of underwear?
Why is a lacy slip so seductive?
The lacy slip is a rare sight these days but many men find the glimpse of a lacy hem peeking out under a skirt or dress a real turn-on and find women in slips far more seductive and sexy than seeing full nudes.
Slips are made of silk, satin or nylon and are either full slips or waist slips. Many people have favourite types and nylon is very popular because of its semi see-through look and its very soft and sensual feel. Full slips often have lacy bust areas as well as lace on the hems. There are slips with pleating and double layered slips, slips covered in lace, slips with embroidery and slips in just about any colour and combination of colours.
Back in the swinging '60s and earlier on in the '50s petticoats and slips were commonly worn as a woman or girl's undergarment but in recent years the practice has got less and less. For some bizarre reason clothing manufacturers and fashion designers have not been catering for the public tastes when it comes to these items of underwear, which seems strange in view of the way everything else is packaged and sold to us, and what was once thought of as scandalous and shocking is no longer so.
We all know that sex is used to sell us anything advertisers can think of to link with the subject and anything which is sexy or raunchy will get plenty of interest so why is it slips are left out to the extent they have been? Many people think a lacy slip is the most sexy article of clothing that can be worn and there are very many who have a slip fetish.
Movie directors and producers know all about the erotic appeal of a woman dressed in a lacy slip and countless actresses and some singers too have appeared in films wearing slips or have had photoshoots with them dressed in this article of sexy lingerie.
Michelle Pfeifer, Elizabeth Taylor, Joely Richardson, Catherine Deneuve, Kim Basinger, Gillian Anderson, Joan Collins, Sherilynn Fenn, Jane Fonda, Catherine Zeta Jones, Kylie Minogue and Sharon Stone are all examples but there are very many more. Janet Leigh appears wearing a waist slip in the classic horror film Psycho.
It is not just the men who find slips and petticoats very sexy because very many women do too and say that it makes them feel more feminine and attractive wearing these clothes. This has led to the demand being supplied by sellers of vintage clothing with many specialising in lingerie.

This led to fashion for a while of slips being worn as outer garments, often over jeans or leggings. There have also been slip dresses produced by fashion manufacturers and these are often hemmed with lace although they don't have the same appeal as the real thing peeking out from under a dress or skirt. Pop singer Kylie Minogue was featured on the front of FHM magazine wearing a slip dress.
Because slips have become somewhat of a rarity these days there are even Internet forums where slip lovers discuss slip sightings.
Charity shops are one place that people go to buy slips and others get theirs onine at sites like Ebay. You would think that with all this call for these sexy garments that someone would go into making them in quantity like they once did. Are the days of the lacy slip over? I think and hope not!
