When I think of summer nightgowns, the classic chemise immediately comes to mind. Whether you're looking for a comfortable chemise you can wear every night or a sexy, sheer chemise you can wear when you want to make the temperature rise even hotter, we've selected our favorite chemises for you to consider on your quest for the perfect chemise.
For the crème de la crème of lingerie, including chemises, La Perla is the ultimate brand, as you can see from the La Perla Spring in New York Chemise
($157). Available in salmon or black mesh, this delicate and simple chemise is trimmed at the bust and the hem with exquisitely detailed floral lace that sweetens the sheer aspect of the chemise. Featuring a sweetheart neckline, spaghetti straps, and a tonal ribbon bow at the center of the lace bust, this chemise can transform you into a vision of pure loveliness.
Another sweet and lacy chemise, the Natori Adore Chemise
($160) gets its sex appeal from the black floral lace trim curling down the bodice, as well as along the hem and side slits. The blush pink slip is approximately 25.5 inches from the top center front to the bottom hem. Easy to wear as you can simply slip this chemise on over your head, it also features adjustable straps to ensure a perfect fit - a must for a chemise!
If you're shopping for a chemise that's casual and comfortable enough to wear every night, try the Calvin Klein Must Have Chemise
($32.99). A short, fly-away chemise, the double layer of sheer chiffon is lightweight and airy while still having a bit of sex appeal. Available in pink and blue, this chemise features a drawstring scoop neckline with ruffled trim, non-stretch, fully adjustable straps, and a signature logo patch at the hem. This simple, classic chemise makes a great summer nightgown.
What if you really want a chemise but would like just a bit more coverage? If so, consider the Oscar de la Renta Pink Label Sheer Illusions Chemise and Thong
($51.80). Whether you choose the sweeter pearl color or the sexier black, this chemise has short sleeves for a bit of arm coverage and a sheer bodice for a lot of sex appeal. With a rounded and banded neckline and cuffs trimmed with mesh, the bottom of this chemise is just as lovely as sheer chiffon falls from the empire waist in pleats. This chemise is also a fantastic deal as it has been marked down quite a bit from its original retail price of $74. Shop quickly if you want to score this chemise.
Another chemise selection from Oscar de la Renta, the Oscar de la Renta Pink Label Secret Garden Chemise
($69) is perfect for those who love floral prints. Vibrant red, pink, and blue flowers are contrasted with black lace trim along the V-neckline and the hem. Made of polyester georgette, this chemise has a length of 32 inches. Featuring adjustable straps, this floral chemise offers romance and sweetness along with comfort and ease. And, if you'd like more coverage, you can order the matching Oscar de la Renta Pink Label Secret Garden Wrap
I really love chemises in animal print for the playful sexiness a leopard or zebra print can add to the gown, and this Betsey Johnson Tan Leopard Print Ruffle Chemise
($36.99) is both fun and sexy with its leopard print ruffles. Included with the lightweight tiered chiffon chemise is a matching low-rise G-string with ruched ribbon trim along the sides and back. The chemise features adjustable spaghetti straps with bow detailing and a V-neckline with an elastic band at the empire waist and a bow at the center. As this chemise has been marked down from its original retail price of $75, supplies are limited, so act fast if this leopard print chemise tickles your fancy.
Sometimes you need a sexy chemise to spark things up in the bedroom, and if you're looking for a hot and spicy nightgown for this purpose, look no further than Victoria's Secret Very Sexy Satin and Lace Babydoll
($35). From the experts on sexy and affordable lingerie at Victoria's Secret, this chemise is available in bright red with black lace and pink and black lace. Made of smooth satin, the hem is trimmed in black lace, and the cups are detailed with eyelash lace. A matching V-string is included with this babydoll chemise. Your partner will be thrilled to see you in this sensual slip of a chemise.
Want an even sexier chemise? This Agent Provocateur Cindy Slip
($370) is a jaw-dropping open net black lace slip that is designed to define and sculpt your curves. The sharp chevron lines slim as the linear lace wraps around your hips. Adorned with pretty peach fishnet bows, this chemise also features black ring and slide detailing. A great upscale lingerie brand, Agent Provocateur is my go-to shopping destination for the sexiest chemises around.
