This is the best chemise i have ever had, I will tell you I loved it! I wore it as a night gown, I wore it under skirts, I wore it to death. I bought it 13 yrs ago for 40 $ and it lasted 5 yrs, I did wear it a lot! I went back to buy another and the price went up to 80ish so I declined. So today I thought now 80$ , it was worth it. I just came one to buy it again. yikes.I must admit it is a great chemise, but! from 40ish to 144 in 13 yrs?
