Modesty Slips: The Hack Every Modest Wardrobe Needs

Walking the line between modesty and fashion can sometimes feel like a high-wire circus act. The sad truth is, sometimes there are just trends that modest girls can’t wear in good faith. Fortunately, the ever growing trend of sheer, often lacy dresses is one you can participate in without compromising your standards.

“How?” you might ask: the modesty slip! These slips provide cap sleeve coverage, modest necklines and their hems go at or below the knee.  These slips cover everything you want covered so you can enjoy that cute sheer lace dress you’ve had your eye on for weeks!

Honey Slip with Lacy Dress

A modest slip takes a dress from immodest to modest in the blink of an eye!

Here are four of the best modesty slips on the market, along with the attributes that make them stand out.

Honey Slip

This slip is a product that definitely lives up to its name! “Honey Slips” are made of the silkiest, softest nylon spandex material, ensuring your dress will easily glide over your slip and your slip won’t bunch underneath. The Honey Slip features cap sleeves, a modest neckline, a knee-length hem; and is sure to be a “game changer” for your wardrobe!

Honey of California Black Modest Cap Sleeve Slip

Once you put your Honey Slip on, you’re not going to want to take it off!

The Honey Slip is available in sizes XS-XL as well as “regular” and “long” lengths (their “long” length is four inches longer than the original Honey Slip and is a perfect for girls over 5’9 – or girls looking for slightly more coverage)! Not sure what size you need? Honey Slip offers “Find Your Size 2 Packs” where you can order two sizes, keep the size that works and send the other one back for free. Available colors include white, black and nude; priced at $59.
