What is slip dress?

A slip dress is very similar to a traditional under slip that you would normally wear under dresses. With the main difference being that unlike the under slip a slip dress is meant to be seen and not  worn under other dresses. 
The original slip dress looked like an undergarment, but was intended to be seen asa stand alone dress. It can  sometimes be mixed with lace and sheer materials. Allowing some designs to show glimpses of the body beneath. 
A slip dress It is traditionally cut on the bias meaning it wont hug the form but instead lays along the form in a very flattering way. The classic slip dress has spaghetti straps and can come in short, midi, or floor lengths.

Flattering Black Slip Dress:1

"Sheer plunge bias slip"

By Fluer de Mal 


This 100% silk bias slip dress is to die for. It is sexy without even trying. With its unique v-neckline accentuated by sheer silk chiffon. The midi length sits perfectly just below the knee and has adjustable straps for a perfect fit. 
The simplicity of this super flattering black slip dress is its strength. I would pair this will a very simple thin strapped heels and you're all set. No need for anything more with a neckline like this.

"Francine slip dress"

by kaithe 


This slip dress by Kaithe so perfect. The midi length of this dress keeps with the feel of an elegant Kaithe design but the neckline adds a bit of sex appeal without going too far. 
I love that it's cut to flatter the female figure but doesn't give too much away.
You could wear this with nothing under for a more sexier look or a black lace camisole peeking out from underneath for a little more modest feel and to add some layers and texture.

"Claudia T"

By Amanda Uprichard


This light weight linen slip dress with gold tone back chain and halter neck line is amazing. I love the unique neckline and the little chain detail lets you skip wearing a necklace

I love how delicate the chain is too so it doesn't distract from the beauty of a collar bones on display. If you want to flaunt your shoulders this is the perfect dress for you. 

This would be gorgeous paired with an amazing set or earrings too. 

Flattering Black Slip Dress:4

The luxury price point is well deserved for a such a special piece like this. Its no wonder Saint Laurent has always been my favorite brand. Mainly because of dresses and designs like this unique and super flattering black slip dress. 
They've kept the design details minimal with these almost invisible spaghetti straps that don't distract from the daring front cut-out detail. 
But thats not all they have done here. The back of this dress is just as bold as the front with a completely open back and longer hem detailing at the bottom back to add some elegant drama to the classic slip dress.

"vivianne dress" by significant other

This gorgeous mid length satin black slip dress with halter neckline has a very minimal feel to it. Meaning, no need for any jewelry or overdone accessories for this style. Maybe just a chic watch or tennis bracelet.
I would pair this with a thin strap sandal and hair slicked back to show off the amazing neck line for an elegant but semi casual feel. Or heels if you want to elevate this super flattering black slip dress a but more.
The midi length really lends its self well to being dressed up or down.

what do you wear under a

flattering black slip dress?

You want whatever you wear under a slip dress to be smooth and not draw any attention to its self. It should look like you have nothing under it. 
So always go for a silky undies, or seamless option. Dont wear anything with lace detailing or hooks or pins as they will ruin the line of the dress and how it lays over you.
