“Smart, Chic & Made in the USA” spotlights American-made clothing that is work-appropriate and professional.
Several years ago I made a big mistake – I gave a friend a hard time when I “caught” her wearing a full slip under a summer dress. (Hello, Reader A – I think you’ll enjoy this post!)
A slip seemed so old-fashioned – and what was the point of wearing an extra layer on a hot day if it wasn’t providing any compression (i.e., shaping)? Reader A held her ground, and I’m here to tell you that she was absolutely right.
Technology changes everything – even slips. Commando’s stretch microfiber slips are often recommended in magazine editorials, so I finally gave one of their camisole slips a try. It’s a game-changer, and I wish that I had listened to my very wise friend much, much sooner!
Here’s what’s great about Commando’s camisole slips:
- They make your dresses look better and feel more comfortable;
- They are invisible under your clothes – there are no seams and the edges are laser cut;
- They have a nice, sleek design and look good on their own;
- The fabric is soft and feels good against your skin;
- They absorb sweat and keep your clothes cleaner;
- They are not constricting;
- They are much cooler than shapewear and fitted camisoles;
- They stay where they belong and don’t ride up (or fall down);
- They are absolutely perfect for wearing under wrap dresses – no danger of exposure from above or below because Commando will keep you covered even if your dress has other ideas;
- They are machine-washable; and
- Commando is Made in the USA!
The Commando Full Cami Slip (pictured above) is available from Commando in True Nude, Dark Nude, Black and White for $88. The sizing seems a little strange, but I’ve found that it works: Small/Medium is for dress sizes 0-8 and Medium/Large is for dress sizes 10-14.

I wear the Commando Mini Camisole Slip (pictured here) with dresses that are more than a couple inches above my knee – the full slip can show if a dress is any shorter.
The mini slip is significantly longer on me than it is on this model – it ends mid-thigh, which is much more practical!
