What is a Babydoll?

We get many questions about the different types of lingerie we carry, and what each one is called and why. So we decided we’d start to write a series of posts on the different types of lingerie you’ll find on Foxy Lingerie. Today, we want to answer one of those questions for our readers – what is a babydoll? The following post should help some of you understand exactly what a babydoll is.

This movie started the popularity of this lingerie style among adults. Also, originally, clothing like today’s babydolls were worn by infants to make changing diapers a lot easier.
