Chemise with Stretch Lace ...nothing exemplifies romantic lingerie more than a beautiful lace chemise that hugs all the right curves.
Delicate yet functional, this wildly popular exotic lingerie effortlessly crosses over from ladies sleepwear to daywear, making it a versatile choice among lingerie lovers and newbies alike.
A favorite of both sexes, chemises are a favorite gift for birthdays, anniversaries, and honeymoons.
However, there are several mistakes that people tend to make when shopping for a chemise with stretch lace. Let's take a closer look on what to avoid.
Buying Without Trying - This is a big no no, whether it's a lace chemise, satin chemise, or any kind of lingerie or intimate apparel that you haven't worn before.
Avoid impulse-buying simply because something looks good on a mannequin or on a hanger.
Lingerie needs to fit properly, and if it does not, the whole effect is ruined. Trying it on will ensure that it is, in fact, flattering and comfortable.
Choosing The Wrong Lace - A typical mistake mistake is opting for a chemise with stretch lace where the lace is itchy or unflattering.
If the lace is coarse, rough or even slightly itchy, having this lingerie undergarment against your skin is going to be a brutal experience. Uncomfortable lace should be avoided at all costs.
Wearing a chemise should be fun, flirty, and above all comfy. It should be soft, stretchy, and feel like a second skin.
Spending too much or too little - is a trap that many fall into.
If, a chemise is uber cheap and the price tag seems too good to be true, it probably is.
Likewise, the opposite is true. There really is no need to spend hundreds and hundreds of dollars on this kind of lingerie undergarment – unless money is no object.
Opt for a quality chemise that is stylish, feminine, and will carry you through several seasons of wear.
Ignoring The Quality - This may seem obvious, but it isn't always for people in a rush.
Avoid chemises that pull, tug, or snag easily.
If there are threads squiggling out, or if the stitching is poorly done, put it back.
There is nothing worse than spending hard earned money on a chemise or slip lingerie that you love, only to have it unravel the first or second time you wear it.
This is beyond frustrating, and a waste of money and time.
Not Reading The Care Tag - Don't ignore the fabric care tag.
If, you're a lingerie aficionado and the chemise needs to be hand-washed, that is fine (assuming you don't mind following through with this vital step).
But, if you don't have a lot of time to invest in your lingerie wardrobe, and the tag says “dry-clean only”, it most likely is not worth the cost, the bother, or the time to take to a dry cleaners after every wear.
Instead, opt for a chemise with stretch lace that is not high-maintenance.
Nylon or nylon / spandex blends offer a great combination of style and durability that is hard to beat.
From an elegant silk chemise to a satin chemise, shopping for chemises has never been more affordable or offered more fabulous options.
