Why wear slips under dresses?

Wearing slips under dresses has some great perks. They smooth out your silhouette for a more polished look and add extra coverage, making sheer fabrics less revealing. Slips also keep you comfortable by reducing friction, preventing chafing, and protecting your dress from sweat. Plus, they help your dress fit better and drape more nicely, giving you an all-around more flattering look.
