Insomniac Sale Picks: Natural Fiber Slips

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Lydia requested a few picks for natural fiber slips – including silk, cotton, rayon, modal, or bamboo – so here we go:

QUICK NOTE: Plus size slips in natural fibers were almost non-existent, so I included a few resources toward the end of this for each. Petite and tall were actually non-existent, sorry ladies.

silk slip

Marycrafts Womens Pure Silk Full Slip – was $135, now $37.90 – $52.90

With its ruched bust this guy is also listed as a nightgown/chemise, but so long as it’s worn beneath a relatively thick top it’ll be fab as a slip, too. This is a 100% silk charmeuse garment with adjustable spaghetti straps. Available in this black as well as gold, pink, purple, burgundy, turquoise, or white in sizes 0 -22. The same colors and size range are also available without the ruching in a looser fit style.

wintersilks half slip

WinterSilks Washable Silk Knit Half Slip – was $39.50, now $31.60
with code UW012 on Wintersilks site

A simple slip, but 100% filament silk and wonderfully washable. I can’t find a listing for exact length, but the product description says “knee length,” which means it might be long on petites and short on talls. Available in this beige as well as black in sizes S – XL. I’ve linked to Amazon above which doesn’t include the discount but can be slightly easier to deal with and offers free shipping, and also the Wintersilks site where you can get the 20% off but have to pay $10 in shipping. Couldn’t find many cotton half-slips, but this one is available in S, XL, and 2X.

michael stars slip

Michael Stars Cami Slip – was $44, now $26.41 – $28.78

If silk isn’t your favorite fiber, you can give this 100% rayon cami slip a try. It’s a sleek, minimalist design with adjustable straps and a slim fit. Machine washable and made in the U.S. Michael Stars runs small, so do check the size chart. Available in sizes XS – L.

 

For plus size slips try:

 

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for natural fiber slips:

  1. Wintersilks – Full and half slips in silk and silk blends.
  2. Amazon – The Everything Store delivers again – from silk knits to rayon and more.
  3. Gudrun Sjödén: Gudrun’s slip dresses are modal/spandex blends and although they can be worn as actual dresses are also lightweight enough to be slips. Available through size 24.
  4. Soma – A few silk and cotton options, some in plus sizes.

    I’ve found that the best and cheapest way to buy silk slips and chemises is through wholesale outlets that sell fabric and clothing blanks to textile artists. You’ll only be able to buy them in white, but they’ll be very inexpensive. Try Dharma Trading Company ( http://www.dharmatrading.com/ ) which has a silk charmeuse chemise for $32 ( http://www.dharmatrading.com/clothing/silk/charmeuse-chemise.html?lnav=clothing_silk.html ) and Thai Silks ( http://www.thaisilks.com/ ) which has a silk charmeuse chemise for $34 ( http://www.thaisilks.com/product_info.php?cPath=36&products_id=1207 ). I’ve ordered extensively from both places over the years, and they have given me fantastic customer service.

    The one thing I have found the 90’s fashion revival good for is picking up slip dresses that recall the underwear as outerwear trend – and then wearing them as slips. It’s very hard to find nice slips any more – which is very frustrating as the push to make clothing cheaper has resulted in linings being used infrequently and cheap fabrics being ubiquitous.
