Chloe Reviews Her Favourite Silky Satin Slips
As a self-confessed satin addict, I have a particular fondness for those classic full-length silky satin slips that hug and caress every curve and hollow. It must be something to do with the way these lovely visions of femininity are crafted and the nuances of the female form. While I agree that many modern outfits are already fully lined, I still extract a huge amount of silky satin pleasure from wearing them under my clothes.
From lacy hems and bodices to the delicate spaghetti straps and embroidered wide shoulder styles, they really are the epitome of all things feminine. In my review below, I look at what’s on offer out there for lingerie lovers of all shapes and sizes who appreciate the difference between the mundane and the truly luxurious. I have also linked to some of my own personal silk and satin favourites which I am sure you will appreciate.

Sulis Silks Pure Silk Chemise Slip
This beautifully handmade silky satin chemise slip really is a cut above the average. Sulis have been making fine luxurious lingerie and nightwear from the most exquisite fabrics for many years now. I have several pretty and delicate lingerie items purchased from them and they are all among some of my most favourite. The fabric that they use is best described as “silk satin” and it has such a lovely and delicate feel to it that whenever I go into my lingerie closet I am always drawn to run my hands over this lovely garment.
This Sulis chemise is perfect for wearing under any girlie dress and when I do, the feeling of the soft flimsy silk satin against my skin always sends a tiny shiver down my spine. It has been created in a bias cut using separate panels of the luxurious satin fabric and this gives it a fabulous shape that also feels Devine against the skin. I even wear mine under my smart office skirts and blouses even though I work from home because I just adore the way it feels against my body as I sit at my desk.
It is also perfect for wearing to bed as a sleep chemise and I personally like to get the maximum pleasure from wearing my silky satin slips and lingerie so I sometimes wear satin or silk slips around the house when I am chilling in the evening. The great news is that when I do, I don’t have to worry about getting ready to slip into my cosy satin bed later either. The silk satin material that is used in this heavenly piece of lingerie is much closer to silk than satin but far more durable and it washes up looking and feeling just as it did the first time I slipped into its delicate feminine caress.
Julianna Rae Pure Silk Slip
It was definitely an OMG! moment for me when I opened the packaging and gazed at this stunningly feminine creation from the luxurious lingerie range by Julianna Rae. Just the sight of the delicate feminine lace against the heavenly soft smooth silk fabric set my heart beating faster. I swear that when I reached into the pretty scented box and rested my fingertips on the fabric my heart missed a few beats and I audibly gasped. Make no mistake, this is not a cheap piece of lingerie, but it is about as exquisitely feminine as any slip I have ever had the pleasure of owning.
The words “elegant and luxurious” go only a small way to describing the beauty of this delicate garment. Bias cut in panels for a flattering fit that will turn anyone that wears it into a mirror hugging vixen, this slip looks and feels sumptuous and sensual. I have no idea where they got the fabric from when they created this garment, but I know that I have never felt anything quite like it before. The real irony is that it is deceptively hard wearing and washes up like new in lukewarm water with soft detergents or natural soaps which only add to the beautiful fragrance of the luscious silky fabric. If like me you love to press your flimsy delicates to perfection you will be glad to hear that it will cool iron for a perfect and flattering fit after every wash.
From the pretty feminine spaghetti straps to the delicate handcrafted lace at the bodice and hem, every detail of this luxurious slip just oozes quality and sophistication. I know it has a designer label and a price tag to go with it, but I would rather look forward to being cocooned in the soft embrace of this beauty than have a hundred cheaper poly satin slips waiting for me in my lingerie closet. Even if you never wear slips under your clothes (and God knows why any silky satin lover wouldn’t want to) it is the perfect garment for relaxing in the comfort and privacy of your own home. Whether you choose it as sleepwear or luxurious lingerie, slipping into this pure silk creation will sooth away the hassles of the day whenever you wear it.
LilySilk Sleep Chemise Slip in Pure Silk
This lovely fuss-free creation from LilySilk is made from the purest natural 22 Momme silk. It has all the tactile and sensuous qualities that lovers of real silk lingerie adore and it feels absolutely sumptuous against the skin. The garment has been lovingly put together to provide a cosy fit that is accentuated by a flouncy skirt-like effect at the hem. The garment comes in a sweet little box and looks almost as good as it feels.
LilySilk is the pure silk specialists and they really do know how to make the most beautiful silky slips at what are some of the most reasonable prices I have come across. While you can always buy nylon and poly-satin slips for a fraction of the price, nothing in the world compares to the sensation of real silk against your body. While this is more of a sleep chemise than a pure slip I often wear mine around the house in the evenings after a hard day at my desk and it feels so silky smooth that I have even worn it to work under my favourite pure silk blouses.
The biggest problem with this delicate little number, however, is that those naughty little silk lingerie creators at LilySilk have gone and made it so beautifully that have been virtually wearing the delightful little thing to death. It looks and feels fabulous under my fitted satin blouses and I have one that is virtually the same colour.
