What is A Chemise?

Before we continue, it’s important to clear up a little confusion on the definition front. A chemise used to solely refer to a petticoat slip. That’s a garment that was worn underneath clothes to create a smooth silhouette, and given the central heating status in the old days – to provide an extra warm layer.

If you wear one made in a deliciously soft fabric such as satin or silk, they will  feel as good as they look. This makes them an ideal choice for a romantic evening sipping wine by the fire for those of us who prefer a more elegant and low key seduction style.
