Chemise, from the French for shirt, refers to a sleepwear shirt or gown that flows from the shoulder and isn't fitted at the waist. Plus size sleepwear chemises are both comfortable and feminine and, with more than half of American women wearing size 14 and above, manufacturers have created lots of styles to choose from.
Many plus size chemises have a fitted bodice, accentuating your assets. They then float gently around your curves, creating a flattering silhouette and a comfortable fit. Chemises are available in lots of fabrics, from silky polyesters to cotton, lightweight knits and satin. Many styles have straps, either spaghetti strap or wider straps with deep vee necklines. In plus-sizes, look for chemises with adjustable or elastic straps and cups with darts or seams for additional shaping.
