Babydolls & Chemises

Babydolls, originally designed in 1942 due to fabric shortages are a short loose-fitting nightgown/negligee and sometimes sleeveless. However, the name babydoll did not eventuate until the 1956 movie Baby Doll. When made with sheer fabric such as nylon, chiffon or silk and trimmed with lace they are considered an erotic piece of adult lingerie and often sold as with matching panties as they are typically visible.

Chemises, on the other hand, have a longer history dating back to before the Regency period. While chemises and babydolls are similar, a chemise is tighter fitting at the hips and does not have buttons or fasteners.
