Yes, you can definitely wear a bra under a chemise. The type of bra you choose depends on the style and fabric of your chemise. For example, if your chemise has a low-cut neckline, I recommend wearing a plunge bra or a demi-cup bra to ensure it remains hidden. If the fabric is thin or silky, opt for a seamless T-shirt bra to avoid any visible lines. If the chemise is more fitted, consider wearing a smoothing or shaping bra to create a streamlined silhouette underneath.

One common misconception is that you should not wear a bra under a chemise because it may show through the fabric. However, with the right style and fit of both your bra and chemise, this is not an issue at all. In fact, wearing a supportive and well-fitting bra underneath can enhance the overall look and feel of your outfit.

A less-known fact is that some chemises come with built-in bras or shelf bras for added support. Knowing about this feature can save you time and money in finding the perfect undergarments to pair with your chemises. I recommend checking out different styles of chemises to see which ones already have this convenient feature included.
