Awesome website, thank you for sharing!! I'm always looking for cotton underliners since bras don't fit well these days... especially since a lot of the synthetic undergarments seem to irritate my skin more.

I usually sew in a cotton lining to my skirts if at all sheer. And I buy neckline underliners (CROPPED TANK SHIRT LAYER SHELL) from this place (cotton!

had a co-worker here in Minneapolis who wore flip flops to our office -- I complained about it only because she made so much noise when walking with those flip flops

Good thing it was a co-worker and not a boss that yelled at you Gwynne! That would have made me angry enough to talk to my boss about it. Some offices in California do follow the old standard rules (lawyers offices, it seems) but I live in another climate where it is more relaxed and most do not. Back in Illinois my parents had a casual friend who worked for a lawyer as a paralegal in Chicago, and she wore clothes such as are in the the Hunger Site for our Tzedakah board. I remember with longing "How can I find a job here in an office and dress like that!" Then I remember being really offended when I was going to see some paralegal office here and the young receptionist was wearing flip-flops! In California, you can get away with flip-flops in an office setting. in many offices. THAT is way too casual for me!
My mother at one time worked for Hewlett-Packard (not in management or in an office) and office workers from California came to the then Midwest headquarters for training and wore flip-flops to the office. They were told that it was inappropriate attire.

I like lined items if the lining is cotton - I personally hate polyester. Always feels like wearing a plastic bag.

Not regularly, but boy they are so great in triple digit heat! I actually have a skort as well, I really like skorts. I have two skirts right now plus shorts for this awful summer heat in CA, one is actuallly a skort. I wish I hadn't bought black though. The skirt is great because it's gauze but has a light fabric slip the same color underneath. Very few people in California wear slips or pantyhose anymore (which is a shame) even in work environments in the summer.. A lot of dresses and skirts do come lined. But many don't and it's sleazy!

I always travel with a skirt or dress (or two). Great for hot weather, and sometimes I just want something different.

If the fabric is vaguely sheer in sunlight, or the skirt of the dress is about knee length, I ALWAYS wear a half slip under it. For travel, I have a short bamboo fabric skirt and I use that for a slip. Otherwise, I prefer woven cotton half slips - you can usually find them at J.C. Penney's, though sometimes you need to order them.

Well I wore a dress to Pentecost services today. I have an older cotton-ish skirt that is not as long as what I prefer to wear with my stumpy legs, and I used it like a "slip". Other times I wear a pair of leggings to act like a slip. I've not owned a chemise style slip in years... only the half slip style but not worn those in years since I had to quit wearing hose and wear woolen socks...

any one out there still wear skirts and/or dresses on a regular basis? do any of you wear slips underneath? I have found that none of the stores, at least locally in Minneapolis St. Paul, carry a whole lot of them--just a few in smaller sizes and even then just a few. most of them are carried on line. Amy the only one who still wears a slip?
