    Und? Was ist deine Schlussfolgerung daraus, ladygrey?

    To me 'slip' is the general category, and 'full slip' and 'half slip' are the two possible kinds of slip, the subsets, if you need to specify more particularly. I would support adding those two additional terms if either of them isn't in LEO.

    I wouldn't really call the existing entry wrong, since a full slip is a slip, just as a half slip is a slip, and you don't have to specify 'full slip' or 'half slip' every time you use the word.

    Though especially full slips are largely obsolete, so it might be worth changing that marking. It's not that the word is archaic, though, just the wearing of the garment. How are words for other historical garments marked, like spats or girdle or bustle? [Hist.]? But full slips are still fairly recent history ...

    What about underskirt and petticoat? Are they synonyms of slip? Is there a difference in usage?
    #5VerfasserQuestionmark20 Jun. 10, 20:16
    Both are now only historical in AE as far as I know, though petticoat has been a synonym for slip in some regions and (IIRC) in BE. A true petticoat could be thickish, frilly white cotton, maybe with a lot of lace around the hem, in the days when they were longer and fuller and women and girls might wear more than one at a time, in layers. Historic costumes like Tracht may also have one or more petticoats, that show a little out from under the skirt and are partly decorative.

    I picture a petticoat in my mind as worn under a short(ish) skirt, as by 19th-century girls; it would probably be the same word for one worn under a long dress, but those weren't as visible, I guess. The layer that had the wire hoops in it, for a hoop skirt, was a petticoat, I think; in other periods women wore several petticoats for a similar bell-like effect without wires.

    When I think of the word underskirt I picture more a skirt that's not really underwear, but just a skirt (in colored fabric, for instance) worn as the not outermost layer. I'm really not up on historical costume, but I picture (vaguely) something like a Victorian riding dress, with a coatlike overskirt in some mud-friendly color that could be lifted or held back to reveal an underskirt in a contrasting, more fashionable color; or an 18th- (?) century dress with panniers, where the overskirt was designed to not meet completely in the middle, showing a contrasting underskirt in a more elegant fabric, like a brocade in contrast to a solid color.

    Slips, in contrast, are thin and slippery, made out of fabrics like nylon or other synthetics; a 20th-century phenomenon as far as I know, with their heyday in around the same period as the heyday of nylon stockings.

    Not sure if that helps much, since I don't know the exact words for any of those in German, sorry.

    really? I have two dresses that require a full slip - one made of scratchy wool, the other of lace. Now while the wooly one came from a tailor, the lacy one came from a high-street chain, so can't have been too outlandish or even hist...

    Or wasn't that what you wanted to say?

    Yes, "half slip" ist the AE version of an underskirt.
    #9VerfasserPagliaccio21 Jun. 10, 10:13
    re #9: I'm not sure that AE necessarily has anything to do with it, since the person who started this thread was shopping in the UK. Please see also what I wrote about 'underskirt' above. Perhaps you meant Unterrock instead?

    @Spinatwachtel: Okay, fine, whatever; I wasn't really trying to account exhaustively for every possible case. I still think the general trend seems to be in the other direction, as many women seem to wear pants much of the time nowadays, and skirts rather than dresses when they dress up. Also, garments often are just made with a lining if they need it. But I admit I wasn't thinking of anything like a wool knit, perhaps because I live in a warmer area.

    As someone who used to wear a separate slip frequantly in those ancient historical times when skirts always stuck to your tight-clad legs if you didn't, I can confirm that though you can also say "half slip" or "waist slip" or whatever, that is the more specific term, used especially by manufacturers, and we Brits also just call them slips, whether they are half slips or full slips.

    I can't see any reason to mark these words as "veraltet" when slips are still sold in shops today:
