I was recently contacted by one of my favorite online shops for modest layering pieces, Shell Sheli, to review their new product: the SuperSlip. As a tall woman, I can definitely appreciate the idea of a skirt extender, though I was a bit hesitant to accept the product as I am so tall, I feared it still wouldn’t work for me. After some very nice and informative emails, I agreed to test this new and innovative product for you all.
Here is the basic info:
The top is a smooth polyester slip to lay flat under your skirt without adding bulk.
The bottom 8″ is made from a thicker material to extend the line of your skirt.
It is 26″ long and held in place with a thin elastic band which allows you to comfortable wear it at any point to make it the perfect length.
It comes in A-line and Pencil shapes to meet the needs of your wardrobe.
When my package arrived (quite speedily!), I was eager to get a good feel for these innovative slips. I tried one on under my comfy skirt just to get an idea, and it was love at first sight.
I wore the a-line slip under a skirt to work on Thursday, and the pencil slip under a summery dress on Shabbat. The pencil slip was worn in place of a jersey knit layering skirt, and was a very different feeling. It stayed in place better while walking, and was also much lighter – such a great alternative for summer! Both days I found myself to be extremely comfortable, not having to mess with my skirt or be self conscious. While I had to wear them down around my hips in order to be long enough, it didn’t bother me at all. I also pulled it up to wear high for a test to see around the house, and that was also comfortable. The diversity of these slips is amazing. The only negative I can say is that it did shorten my stride – though that isn’t inherently a bad thing, sometimes its nice to be forced to slow down a bit.

Note: I received both slips for free to review, however I did not receive any additional compensation.
