A slip is a woman's undergarment worn beneath a dress or skirt to help it hang smoothly and to prevent chafing of the skin from coarse fabrics such as wool. Slips are also worn for warmth, and to protect fine fabrics from perspiration.

A full slip hangs from the shoulders, usually by means of narrow straps, and extends from the breast to the fashionable skirt length. A half slip hangs from the waist, and may also be called a petticoat.

Slips are also worn for modesty under translucent outer garments.

Slips are usually made of a smooth and slippery fabric such as silk, satin, polyester or nylon and may be decorated with lace at the edges. They are typically worn over more intimate undergarments.

A half slip may be worn with a matching camisole as an alternative to a full slip.

A slip dress is a dress for street wear styled like a slip, fitting close to the body and having narrow shoulder straps.
