The Basics of Nightwear

Top nightwear picks for brides usually include babydolls and chemises. The two keep you feeling fabulous, come in a wide palette of colours and in gorgeous designs. This makes selection very hard! So, let’s take a step back and get down to basics though. What exactly is the difference between a baby doll and a chemise?

A babydoll is a delicate piece of negligee that rests no lower than your upper thigh. This fabulous mix of the softest fabrics usually comes with a playful neckline to help its wearers with a hint of cleavage. Baby dolls were created by an American lingerie designer, Sylvia Pedlar as a solution to fabric shortage during World War II. This is why they are identified by their high hemlines.

A chemise, French for shirt, is also a very delectable choice. It usually comes in a combination of soft mesh and lace. The cups can be either wired or not, depending on whether you want a little extra support for your chest. Chemises tend to have a longer hemline than babydolls.

Pick your nightwear according to what makes you feel most ravishing. Keep in mind your shape, your comfort and your confidence. An added tip - toy with a co-ordinate set to finish off your ensemble with a touch of sass.
