A camisole top is a highly versatile vest like garment for women, typically with thin, spaghetti straps usually worn under outer clothing but can also be worn as a garment in its own right. Similar garments with wider straps are often called vests or tank tops. Camisoles are normally waist length but can be longer and come in various lightweight fabrics such as silk
, nylon, micromodal and cotton. The most popular colours for daywear are black, white and nude, more feminine designs in colourful satin and floral prints are on trend for loungewear or sleepwear whilst ivory and lace and silk camisoles are favoured for bridal wear
When To Wear a Camisole
Camisoles often come as part of a cami and shorts set which are designed to be worn for sleeping or lounging in. A set like this will keep you looking cute and feeling cool in summer, the perfect holiday sleepwear solution. In various fabrics and designs, a camisole with shorts or briefs can be a very sexy piece of nightwear and can be more practical in the heat than a longer chemise
. In winter, a camisole is more feminine than a vest and looks elegant under blouses and jumpers.
How To Wear A Camisole
Many women ask if they are supposed to wear a camisole with or without a bra. This depends on the style and how much support you need. Some are designed to be worn without a bra and even have one built-in often alongside other support and shaping elements. These more functional designs are designed to be worn as underwear garments but some can pass as a bodysuit. Other, looser fitting designs which are often made from satin add a feminine touch to a more professional looking trouser or skirt suit. A seamless, strapless bra is a great option under such designs so to avoid a visual clash between the classy, elegant spaghetti straps of your camisole and wider, functional straps of your bra.
