Under the Covers

 
Mercifully getting dressed has become easier...but there is a time and a place for slips and petticoats and bed gear that involves a bit of lace....worn as an outer over denim or under a dress these babies will stand out regardless...

Creme Shorter Nylon slip complete with frill at the bottom for showing off under shorter overlay....adjustable straps help out a great deal with embroidery at the bust...size 34-36 R165
