Chemises – Popular Sexy Lingerie For a Very Good Reason

Chemises are adorable pieces of lingerie that have a very long history. What today might be considered a piece of naughty lingerie used to simply be a utilitarian garment. While chemises were originally used to keep outer clothes from getting dirty, our modern usage of this piece of clothing has more to do with getting “dirty” in the bedroom!

Chemises have also been called “shifts” and “smocks” and have undergone quite a transformation in the centuries they’ve been around. They date all the way back to the Middle Ages, in fact, when they were worn underneath regular outer clothing. At the time, clothing was not washed as regularly as it is today, and chemises were worn next to the skin to protect clothes from sweat and body oils. The idea is similar to that of a modern man’s white t-shirt. In those times, however, the chemises would be washed often, but the outer garments would not.

Modern chemises probably have more in common with a camisole or a teddy than they do with a t-shirt, though. They are generally about thigh-length and have straps rather than sleeves. It’s true that they can still be worn as under garments. In fact, they make great slips for short dresses. Current fashion has even brought the chemise to the outside, as silky, short, strappy dresses have become quite popular.

The most popular use of the chemise is for lingerie, but there are so many styles and types of chemises. From lacy peek-a-boo to silk and lace, it’s all about your mood and the atmosphere you are setting. Wearing a silk chemise can make you feel sexy and also keep your partner turned on.

Chemises have a lot in common with lingerie known as “baby doll” style. Like these little dress-type outfits, chemises tend to hug the skin along the bust line and waist and then flare out a bit at the hips. For this reason, they look good on pretty much every body type, too, which is a real bonus for women who are new to shopping for lingerie. While one can think of chemises as being “naughty lingerie,” there is something of an air of romance to them. This is another reason they can be a great choice for someone who is new to lingerie. They tend to be a bit more modest than a bustier, teddy, or corset, so there’s less nervousness for the woman who is simply trying to look pretty for a special night in.

Chemises are a wonderful gift to give. They are forgiving in the size department because they are more relaxed in the bust area. Fortunately, they’re not as tight as other lingerie pieces. Trying to find the right piece of lingerie for your loved one can be easy and comfortable as long as you know what size she is and what she likes. You’ll have just as much fun buying it as she will when receiving it.
