Chemises

Definition - What does Chemises mean?

A chemise is a woman's undergarment that can be described as a loose fitting dress. A chemise is typically made of satin, silk, or lace. It is considered to be lingerie.

Kinkly explains Chemises

A chemise was originally worn as a barrier between the skin and outer layers of clothing to protect the fabrics from sweat and oils of the body. This would help to preserve the expensive outer fabric layers. Today, a chemise is typically not worn under dresses, but a piece of sleepwear that is changed into. Depending on the design, a chemise can be considered lingerie or pajamas.
