I have recently bought a couple of great shaping full slips- one black and one nude, and they seem not only to improve the figure slightly, but made the clothes I wore hang so much better.
There is a large choice of those kind of undergarments to buy out there, even in a local supermarket- and not at all they have to look outdated, some of them are quite sexy! Same goes for half slips. I am a petite girl and it is quite hard to get a slip or a shaper in size 6-8 UK (34-36 EUR), but with a bit of sewing magic if at all possible. and shapers are quite tight anyway even for the next larger size. I tried size 10 (38) and it worked just as well!
On the other hand, the lining does make the inside look so much better.
So here is me finishing my latest project and facing a dilemma: to line or not to line?
What do you think?
