Boudoir by Wallflower’s Lingerie 101: The Chemise

Lingerie 101: Outfit shopping for your boudoir session can be intimidating if you don’t know where to start! Skip the French lessons, and let this ongoing blog series guide you through the world of the bustier, chemise, and bandeau.

Let’s kick this series off with a piece that gets forgotten about too often in the boudoir world: the soft and sexy nightie style called the chemise.

A chemise fits closely to the curves of the body, but isn’t form-fitting. They tend to cut between the upper thigh and just above the knee, so you can find a range of options to fit your style! Being sleepwear, they should be crazy comfy and make you feel like you’re walking around in silk sheets.

Feeling sexy is the #1 job your wardrobe has in your boudoir session, and a silky & sensual fabric can be a great start! A chemise can be a more modest choice that still brings out your inner bombshell.

Find more Lingerie 101 posts on the blog or, better yet, book a session with Boudoir by Wallflower and we’ll do a one-on-one personalized style consultation where I’ll make specific and unique recommendations just for you (and not with pieces from a shared wardrobe!).
