A chemise is the perfect lingerie because it flatters most figures. A chemise hugs the bust and flows through the waist and thighs mimicking the contours of curvy women or creating the hourglass silhouette even when one may not exist.
A chemise is sensual and emphasizes sexuality making it a brilliant choice for lingerie for weddings. A floral chemise is especially romantic.

HISTORY OF THE CHEMISE
Dating back to the 13th century, a chemise was originally an undergarment or loose hanging dress. The English renamed it a “frock” and still use the term today for a simple dress.
The modern chemise became popular during the 1920s and is synonymous with the Flapper Generation and their fashion. Today a chemise is lingerie or intimate apparel, that is sleeveless, usually an a-line bias cut, and slightly-fitted through the bodice. A chemise may be any length from just below the hips to the ankles.
