Women's Woven Cotton Batiste Half Slip
Anything that isn't pure cotton is too hot!
I'm wearing dresses and skirts more often now. I knew I needed a cool slip for the summer, and couldn't fine ANY natural fiber slips in any brand name retail stores, even online. Any garment that isn't a natural fiber (cotton, silk, wool, linen, etc.) is too hot for me. So, thank you, Vermont Country Store, for having the lovely cotton slips I ordered. They're fabulous.

A boon in hot weather
I live in a town that gets hot and humid in the summer and I have a seven year old son to chase after. Most of my hot weather clothes are about as sheer as decency permits, but you have to wear something under them when you leave the house! I bought two of these and alternate them every other day--rinse them out and they drip dry overnight in warm weather. Not something I'd wear during the winter because it wouldn't do much to eliminate cling between a dress or skirt and tights, but a real life saver when it gets hot.

Very wrinkly after washing
I was happy to find cotton slips so ordered this one. It is very lightweight which should be perfect for those summer dresses that need a little something underneath.
I was unhappy to see how much it wrinkles after it is washed. Prior to washing it looked so nice, but once it was washed, it was a wrinkly mess.
The sizing seems to run a little larger than other brands I have purchased. I am keeping it, because I have not been finding other cotton slips, but I sure wish it didn't wrinkle so much. What person wants to iron these days?

This provides modesty if your skirt or dress is a little sheer, and if it can be seen at all, it is lovely with the lace. Just a subtle hint of femininity. The light-weight, pure cotton is very cool, not too insulating in hot weather. I got the off-white color and it is a little lemony, but not too much to show through.

In the land of synthetic clothing it is a real joy to find something as simple as a cotton undergarment. The Batiste Half Slip is not only practical but very pretty as well. My daughter, for whom the slip was purchased, has felt very comfortable wearing it. Since she lives in a hot & dry climate the 100% cotton fabric has been greatly appreciated!
Since this purchase was a gift I am entering data for the recipient.

I ordered both this and the broadcloth slip because of skin allergies to synthetics. This batiste slip is nicer, it is cut on the bias, is cut more generously and is more comfortable. I have a 29 1/2" waist and 39" hips and a medium fits well. I took off a star because the waist elastic is not covered as it usually is in a quality slip. Remove from dryer after one or two minutes and hang dry. It won't shrink and will last longer.

I am so happy I found this slip. I looked in a up-scale department store and all they had were nylon/spandex slips. I can't imagine wearing such a garment in the summer heat and humidity. Your slip is pretty and the medium was a perfect fit. It's just what any woman who wears a summer dress needs to take away that too sheer look that most dresses have.
