I have a lot of bias cut skirts- is it better to wear a straight cut half slip or a bias cut one- assuming of course you need to wear a slip.

Most of my skirts I can go without- but the silky -clingy/static-y ones need a slip even though they are not see through.

To keep the flow of the skirt, I suggest wearing a bias slip. It doesn't need to be as full as the skirt, but it should be cut on the bias. I found that if I wear a regular straight grain slip with a bias skirt, my legs feel confined and I get cranky.
