What is "Camisole" - Definition & Explanation

A short, sleeveless garment for women.
A garment fashioned to wear under blouses, suits and etc., that covers from bust to waist. Usually sleeveless, camisoles (or "camis") traditionally offer little if any breast support, though some modern styles now incorporate a sewn-in bra for additional support. Some contemporary styles are being worn as outerwear.
A light piece of women's underwear for the top half of the body, with thin straps that go over the shoulders.
A bosom-to-hip corset-style garment, usually trimmed in lavish lace. Additional features may include detachable garters, flexible boning, optional shoulder straps, and a lace-up closing.
