The camisole is a waist size undergarment worn from the early 20th C to current, first beneath the corset, then later over the bra. Camisoles by no means buttoned as they’d have been worn beneath the corset. Within the later 1910’s and 1920’s, chemises began to be generally known as camisoles, chemise was thought-about a little bit of an quaint phrase. Often worn at the moment as the one higher physique undergarment.
