A shift, or undergarment, worn by women.
The fancy term for a womanâ€(tm)s long undergarment. Basically like a nightgown which was the only female undergarment other than the corset for much of the century. The term replaced the word â€˜shiftâ€(tm) which was felt to be too indelicate and which had itself replaced the term â€˜smockâ€(tm).
An undergarment made of finely woven soft material worn by both sexes, usually in the form of a basic t-tunic with straight sleeves.
A short, flowing gown that generally has thin straps, a flared at the hem silhouette, usually mid to upper thigh in length. Chemises typically run in the Small/Medium/Large etc sizing. They are less fitted than baby dolls (this combined with their sizing makes them an easier to fit lingerie item.), and easy to sleep in.
A sleeve wrapping around the spine and covers of a binding to protect it from wear when inserted into the slipcase.

The essential undergarment for both sexes, today replaced by common underwear. The poor people maybe had but one set of decent clothes, but the poorest were those who didn't have a single chemise. Men wore a shorter and women longer version of this plain white garment in a shape of a gown with or without sleeves, sometimes embroidered. The main purpose was to keep upper garments clean as long as possible since often washing would ruin them (especially corsets, embedded and embroidered clothes).
An undergarment, like a long, loose petticoat with short sleeves, which was worn under the corset.
The chemise, called a "smock" or "shift" in the 16th century, used to be a garment worn next to the skin to protect clothing from sweat and body oils. Chemise is a French term. Italians call it a "Camicia". The English called the same shirt a "Smock" and the Irish called it a Léine.
Most commonly known as a short, loose fitting gown. Over the years, the style of the Chemise has changed to become sexier and more figure flattering, some even looking more like a short dress.

A chemise is a short, flowing gown that generally has thin straps and an a-line (fitted at the top and flared at the hem) silhouette. Chemises are usually mid to upper thigh length. Chemises are supremely giftable, because they aren't overly revealing (they camouflage tummy, hips and thighs). And (this is the best part!), chemises are sized small, medium, and large, to fit a wide range of sizes. For a sexier chemise choose one made of sheer or embroidered mesh. For a more demure look choose a chemise made of silk or satin and trimmed with lace. View our full selection of Chemises
