┬áby lechatdetabis Cute, versatile little slip or dress
I have the raspberry one in medium and I am 5'4", size 10 in tops, 8 in waist, and 14 in bottoms. It is such a comfortable, versatile little slip. I wear it with tights and a formfitting cardigan, and off I go! It fits like a mini-skirt dress with the hem hitting mid-thigh. The raspberry shade isn't overly bright, but i has a sort of dusted look to it. I'm tempted to get the slip in every single color and length... as well as the camis.
I've found that the long luxe slip hits my ankles perfectly in medium and there's no need for shortening.
I know that a miniskirt with tights isn't the usual workplace look (I work at a cool church), so I think the best for the workplace is to layer it under a slightly sheer chiffon dress in any color you'd like. To dress it up, I'd recommend a slightly sheer chiffon dress or bolero with beading, a belt, tights, and heels!

Initially I loved this slip. I am small on top with flared hips and the fit is perfect for my body type. I got it in XS. The fabric is lovely and feels wonderful and durable, but when I pulled it out of the washer (gentle cycle) I noticed that the thread in the strap had snapped and was unraveling. I took it back and got a replacement thinking that it was just defective, but when I washed the replacement the thread on the bottom seam came undone. I decided to keep this one and just redo the seam myself and haven't had any problems since. I would recomend that even though the tag says machine washable that this be hand washed and line dried as the thread comes out very easily.

First, the fabric is fantastic - a sort of sueded rayon that is thick enough to not be see-thru and not to cling to you, but thin enough to still be floaty and drape nicely.
I tried the mushroom color, which was more of a light cocoa to me, but hey....pretty similar I guess!
The fit was what you'd expect from a bias cut soft fabric like this - sort of fit and flare. One me, since I'm a shorter girl, it came a bit lower, almost to the knees.
Obviously, it's great for around the house, as a nightie or an underlayer to a dress. But since it's pretty opaque, I tried it on with a belt and sort of brought it up through the belt a bit to make a blousey-tunic shape and that worked well. I would also wear it as a short sundress with a little jacket or cardigan over it.
Bottom line: great fabric, not too sheer, flattering drape, highly versatile.
