Chemise

A chemise is longer than a baby doll top but is still a short A-line gown. It can be with a halter or spaghetti straps. It looks good on almost all types of figures because of its angular shape. There are various styles and it can often come with a matching bottom. Choices of fabrics range from silk to lace.
