┬áby applefritter No bra necessary!
I initially grabbed this lovely because of the fun mix of patterns, but was thrilled to see the cups are lined! (The product description says padded, but it's basically just a thick liner.) I have a large bust at 32D/DD, so usually this type of chemise is a no-go for me. The deep neckline makes a bra impossible, but straight fabric cups won't offer any support - the lining on this one makes it (almost) acceptable to go braless outside. I still think my "girls" are a bit too big to go without in public (will layer with a seamless cami), but those a bit less endowed could probably get away with it.
The fabric is a good midweight, light enough to be flowy but substantial so it won't instantly fall apart. My usual small was a nice fit, but probably could have gone XS for a bit more support. Length varied by ~1" between sizes (small hit 1' above knee), and straps are adjustable.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby Suebug Darling to wear as a sundress!
I shop the Lounge section of Anthropologie to find my summer dresses and this one doesn't disappoint! The colors are great in a flowing jersey fabric, length is perfect, adjustable straps, and removable bathing suit cups in the bodice. I wear a small or medium in Anthro depending on the fabric and I went with the small in this one because of the stretchiness. I have worn it without anything under it (covers my 34C well) and also with a GapBody simple pullover cotton bralette in a complimentary color that just barely peeks out the front. I have received sooooooooo many compliments from both friends and strangers!

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby stoichiometrical Sleepwear For Me
It's likely because I'm over 40 and have kids that I purchased this to sleep in. I'm 5'5" and 34B so I got the small, which covers me nicely. The fabric is sinfully soft, floaty, and wonderfully comfortable - 95% modal (magic) & 5% spandex. It's not clingy whether I'm wandering around my house or sleeping in it. I've washed it twice already and it hasn't faded one bit.
