Ever sewn up a white skirt or dress and not been able to wear it because it's see-through - even with a heavy slip underneath? Check out these wardrobe malfunctions: http://garbage.strodong.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/Jennifer-Aniston-Transparent-White-Skirts.jpg?cda6c1

The solution? An old theater trick: add a black slip behind a white one! Black absorbs light and won't show through the garment fabric.
