Over The Big Pond, in the UK, they call the slip a petticoat – however, they too see it’s return to fashion.
In this article, they declare:
Forget the camisole, the bustier and all the other bits of exotic underwear that have lately become more familiar as women’s skimpy outerwear. The hot international fashion trend for summer this year is likely to be the petticoat.
However, they believe that it’s due to the new King Kong movie saying “If an 800-pound gorilla thinks it’s hot, so, dear, do you.”
So I guess, a slip by any other name, still drives men bananas!
