The Slip Is Sexy

“Slips have a kind of sophistication, a sexiness that makes you feel more womanly,” said Lauren Martin, a psychoanalyst in New York, as quoted in the NY Times article, What’s Sexy Now? The Slip.

I’m no psychoanalyst, but I certainly agree.

I also agree with this statement – but caution that many ladies never, ever, lost interest in the luxury known as ‘the slip’.

“We’re beginning to see a new generation discover the slip,” said Marshal Cohen, the chief retail analyst for the NPD Group, a market research firm. “For now slips are an undercultural movement by women shopping in more affluent stores.” Most, he added, are under 40, women who as recently as a year ago would no more have thought of buying a slip than of wearing a hoop skirt. Because the trend is only now emerging, sales figures are not available, but Mr. Cohen predicted a measurable spike in slip sales by spring.
