Using a fabric tape measure, obtain body measurements as follows and compare to the size chart below.
BUST: Measure around your body at fullest part of bust, keeping tape under arms and fairly level front to back. Larger busted women will have a more accurate reading if bra is worn during measurement.
WAIST: Measure around your natural waistline holding the tape comfortably loose.
HIPS: Stand with heels together. Measure around hips at fullest part (approx. 9″ below waist).

We have kept the original Dixie Belle panty sizing, which fits a little smaller than Shadowline panties. Once you know your Shadowline panty size (check our size chart at the top of the page if you’re unsure), you can use the comparison chart below to find your equivalent size in Dixie Belle:
Additional sizing tips:
- Bust measurements are more important for full slips, camisoles and garments with loose, flowing bottoms such as nightgowns or sleepshirts.
- Hip measurements are more important for garments with closer fitting bottoms like slips, pajamas and panties.
- If one of your measurements falls in a larger size or you prefer very loose garments, you may be more comfortable in selecting a larger size.
- Shadowline sizes garments for generous comfort. If you prefer your clothing form fitting, you may want to order a smaller size.
- Slip lengths (full and half slips) are measured from the waist down – nightgowns and sleepshirts are measured from the shoulder down.
- Bra size is NOT the same thing as bust size. Generally, you can convert by adding bra band size (i.e., 34, 36, etc.) to cup size in inches (A=1″, B=2″, C=3″, D=4″, DD=5″). For example, a 34C Bra size = 37″ Bust measurement. Measuring your body is the most accurate method for sizing.

I love this slip to create a smooth line under dresses. The crocheted-edge adjustable hem is preferable to the lace used in some other models – it has a bit more weight and hangs better, in my opinion. I have the best luck with these if I size down a bit for a snug fit. When I’ve bought what I thought would be my size (based on bra size) it’s felt a bit roomy, leading to the straps falling off my shoulders. The only thing keeping it from 5 stars is the adjustable straps don’t stay put. I shorten them to fit the way I want them to and they pull themselves back to their maximum length over the course of the day (or sometimes immediately).

It is getting increasingly hard to find simple yet elegant slips like this so this was a wonderful find. So luxurious. I have this slip now in white and nude and black will be added in the not too distant future.

Great product washes well wears well
This is a great quality slip. I own several of them and have been wearing them for a few months. I only use them to sleep in a lay around the house in. But they are very soft, smooth, and silky. I love buying slips in brands that I haven’t worn before. I first seen the Velrose brand on Amazon but I didn’t buy it until I seen it in a Tomlinson’s department store. Since Velrose only comes in the two colors I bought the white one and dyed it to a nude color and it took the dye very well. So to Velrose I say you have an awesome product but more colors would be nice.
Manufacturer’s Response: Thank you for your comments on the Velrose® Plus Size Adjustable Length Full Slip. We are pleased to now be offering our nude color in this popular style.
