Jockey® sent me a pair of Skimmies® slipshorts to try. It is an alternative to a traditional slip.
While slips may seem something that you wore in the eighties during Easter, or something that your Mom still wears, it should be something more women wear on a daily basis today.
So you don’t have this issue.
Or this one:
It reminds me of when I was a Brownie in the Girl Scouts in the 80s. (Picture a slip dress that Cindy Brady would wear.) I was crossing the ‘bridge’ to become a Junior Girl Scout when I slipped down the bridge. (Should have had some Skimmies on.)
A slip seems like it might of helped in these situations (err…maybe not my Girl Scout slip-n-slide), but if slips aren’t your ‘thing’ (but neither is exposing your nether regions) then check out the Jockey Skimmies; slip meet shorts.
It’s not a compression garment, which is key for those of use that don’t want to squeeze ourselves like a sausage. It is a nice, soft, fabric. It is also great for those of us that don’t want a shoestring up our arse (aka: a thong). I’m 40 now and a lot of things happened down there birthing two kids. It deserves to be left alone.
So the Jockey® Skimmies® slipshorts prevent the panty line without having to fish for your undies in your booty cheeks. (Can I get a hooray?)
It is made up of 85% Nylon, 3% cotton and 12% spandex. Machine washable, but I always suggest line drying to extend the life of any lingerie-like garment. It is anti-static (cling free!) and wicking so it literally can replace your panties. Comes in Small, Medium, Large, Extra Large and 2XL and in colors right now: black, white, nude, fuchsia, green, and purple. You can find them on Jockey.com or at retailers like Macys, Lord & Taylor, JCPenney and even on Amazon.com.
I’ve been wearing my complimentary pair for three days and they haven’t ridden up, which is usually the case with shorts like these. So I am happy to say that they stay put!
