The Maxi Slip

In the name of Allah, compassionate & merciful بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ
Peace be with you السلام عليكم

Beginning next week is the slip week. What is a slip you ask?  Well since you asked,
a slip is a woman's undergarment worn beneath a dress or skirt to help it hang smoothly and to prevent chafing of the skin from coarse fabrics such as wool.
Since this is maxi season I have seen a lot of sisters rock some beautiful dresses but the jersey material makes them cling to their bodies in a not so modest way.  Solution?  a slip.  I remember that in El Salvador the women would not go outside without wearing some form of slip but when I came to the states its like no one has ever heard of them.  The closest I got to an answer was the slip dress which is just a lingerie inspired dress.

Anyway the following should help you out in choosing one.  If you are NOT planning on wearing anything underneath your maxi to reduce heat stroke you can check out this full length slip.  It may be worth as much as a maxi on sale but it will save you some embarrassment at the masjid. iA.

If you prefer only the bottom to be covered you have a these to choose from the ones below that you can reuse with maxi skirts or any other skirts you may have.

Anyone own and wear a slip?

i like to keep mine a little lower than knee length, but never invested in floor length since before islam i never really wore dresses that long

i didn't even know they MADE maxi slips, lol I've never seen one

You are the first person to admit it! subhanaAllah. I used really thin skirts or skirts that reach to my ankles for that fluffy feeling but I will be taking the plunge and buying a couple of slips this summer inshaAllah.

inshaAllah sounds like a good idea

they are all slippery and slidey and stuff so inshaAllah nothing will cling :-)

lol. I own one! Although I usually wear pants, I wear my slip when I wear skirts (if I don't wear pants underneath) :)
