So, I'm translating The Sea, The Sea and there is this sentence which I do not understand. It goes like this: She is quite right, loving shows like slip showing, as I once said to her when her slip was showing!

What does this mean? Thank you! :)

  • slip (clothing) Also see: "your slip is showing" – Cascabel Jan 7 '18 at 20:11
  • Don't know why this was flagged - it seems like a reasonable question. If a lady's slip was showing, (in the old days - when we wore our underwear strictly under) presumably, she would be unaware of the fact that she was embarrassing herself... Like being in love, when you act like an idiot and don't realize it. – Oldbag Jan 8 '18 at 0:51
