What is a Chemise?

dievca couldn’t remember the name of a certain piece of lingerie she wore for Master. she went searching for a photo and found that it was a chemise with garters by Blush Lingerie in Hot Pink.  Worn with nude lace top stockings and Gucci Beaded ankle-strap heels.

As she was looking for the item, dievca realized that other people might need to know the definitions of various lingerie pieces, too!

What is the definition of a Chemise?
A modern Chemise is a one-piece undergarment which slips over the head and is the same shape as a straight-hanging sleeveless dress. It is similar to the babydoll, but it is fitted more closely around the hips. Historically, a chemise was a simple garment worn next to the skin to protect clothing from sweat and body oils.

Now you ask what a Babydoll is….well, dievca will be telling you about some other lingerie pieces weekly, with photos. The Chemise was just the start — any suggestions or offerings, let dievca know. she has 45 pieces to share and discuss, so far. Tune in on Thursdays….
