Summer is the perfect occasion to lounge around in light and breathable fabrics. Cotton, silk, and modal are great options when the weather feels like the only appropriate outfit is a bikini. But if you have to dress around the house, nothing is better than a chemise or babydoll. (And if you want to wear even less, don't miss my recent post on full bust sleep bras and bralettes.)
Here are ten lounge and nightwear pieces that are both pretty and comfortable for the hotter season.
The Cosabella Talco chemise design has small bands and fuller busts in mind. Although this piece doesn’t come in bra sizes, the size range covers a size 32DD to 38G. The Talco chemise is one of Cosabella’s best sellers and is available in different fashion colors. It’s currently available in a timeless black colorway, which would be flattering all year round. This piece is both pretty and efficient. It offers bust support and features a lace underbust band that slightly enhance your silhouette.
If you want to feel like a beautiful Greek nymph, the NK iMODE Rebecca chemise has the perfect aesthetic. The silk Georgette and romantic floral lace are meant to slightly cover your body while feeling like air on your skin. This piece still provides bust support so that you can keep floating around worry-free, like the fairy you are.
Bravissimo PJ Cami nightdress brings comfort and softness to your wardrobe. This piece is available in a broad size range, as well. The beautiful denim blue jersey with matching lace detailing is perfect for every season. Also, the optional racerback prevents the straps from falling off shoulders. Pretty, comfy, and practical: what's not to love?
White loungewear is like bringing a bit of sun inside your home. The Lucille chemise is available in size UK 8 to 18. Soft and feminine this chemise fits larger busts and provides minimal support. The scalloped detailing and plunging neckline contrast with the plain white skirt. Lucille is a lovely addition to your summer wardrobe.
Spring/Summer often calls for floral prints. Strappy detailing is just the cherry on top. This wireless babydoll is available from a size US 10 to 30. The elasticated waist and adjustable straps make it quite easy to fit. The semi-sheer skirt highlights the natural beauty of your figure.
Pretty and affordable this babydoll from Ashley Graham collection is currently on sale! What I love about this piece is that you can use it as outerwear. It would look beautiful with a high-waisted skirt. If you prefer going braless, this babydoll will provide minimal support, but you can also wear a strapless bra underneath.
Origami customs is a gender-affirming lingerie brand. Every piece is made ethically in Montreal. If you would love to have something made with your measurements and specifics in mind, this brand might be the one. Moreover, Origami Customs babydoll is made of three meters of butter soft bamboo so that you can twirl joyfully around your house.
Triangle cups aren’t for everyone, but the Pour Moi Sofa chemise is known to provide a rather generous and practical fit. Available in several colors, this chemise is meant to have a seductive look without compromising on comfort. The brand also offers a matching robe, which is very glamorous as well.
Savage X Fenty offers great loungewear options both in core and plus sizes. The Empire babydoll in the Bea blue colorway feels like a fresh mint lemonade. The bust area is slightly adjustable thanks to the functional front tie. This piece is available in size XS to XL and 1X to 3X.
Let’s hope the sky remains as blue as the Adriana babydoll this Summer. This piece is the same design as the Adriana bralette and provides a high level of support and excellent fit. Adriana combines structure and fluidity. Above all, this babydoll is perfect for those who want to feel secure whether they are lounging around or active around the house.
Which of these nightwear pieces is your favorite? Do you prefer to wear something supportive or more fluid styles?
