Every Monday at the Cut, we’re highlighting one great purchase that won’t take up your whole paycheck. If you’re looking for a splurge instead, check back every Friday for one great purchase that’s worth eating ramen noodles for the rest of eternity.

For the high-maintenance dress that’s prone to bunching or wrinkles, the right slip can be a game changer. This double-faced shaping slip from Commando will make even the most finicky dress lie flat, without squeezing you unnecessarily. The lightweight fabric has a barely there feeling, and it works beautifully under any (knee-length or longer) dress or skirt. Plus it’s kind of a stunner, so you get to feel chic even after your dress comes off.
