Camisole is a term for a women’s lingerie garment. Camisoles are tops with thin, adjustable spaghetti straps. A camisole is similar to a chemise, but shorter in length. It may be loose or tight fitting. While most extend down to the hips, some are short enough to expose the midriff region and others fall as low as the pelvic area.
The camisole evolved from a garment called a corset cover, and it retains a feminine look not seen in similar garments like tank tops.
A camisole is known as a cami for short.
