I've never seen a lady slip *into* a bikini... the process inevitably involves her briefly balancing on one leg at least one point, and some bending.

I guess we can trace the phrase back to "Excuse me whilst I slip into something more comfortable" from films of a certain era, and one assumes the lady is referring to a silk dressing gown.
