Most lingerie falls into one of two categories: frilly and feminine, or sexy and sassy. In the women's chemise world, this distinction is nonexistent. A chemise is a short, loose, sleeveless nightgown, usually made out of a soft material, like lace, satin or silk. Reminiscent of a baby doll, it has spaghetti straps, and the bottom usually skims the upper to mid thigh.
Within those parameters, the chemise can be everything from sweet to sultry. Some are made with delicate lace trim, and are adorned with tiny bows or seed pearls along the top. Others are completely sheer, or have cut out sides. Regardless of which style of lingerie you go for, a chemise makes a great choice.
From Pretty to Provocative: Women's Chemise Lingerie
The short, flowing styling of a chemise makes it flattering for all body types, including curvy and plus size ladies. Paired with matching panties, a simple chemise turns into a complete lingerie ensemble. And because they are comfortable as they are beautiful, chemise sets do double duty as both sleep wear and seduction wear.
Many chemises are sold with matching robes, making them a lovely gift for that special woman in your life. (And choosing a tasteful, elegant chemise over a skimpier piece of lingerie will win you major brownie points with her. Making her all the more eager to let you see her in that sexy little chemise set…)
Racy or romantic- either way, women's chemise lingerie remains a favorite among both men and women.
