Definition: Negligee


n. Women's loose, decorative dressing gown, usually coordinated with a nightgown. First introduced in France in the 18th Century, where it mimicked the heavy head-to-toe style of women's day dresses of the time. The word comes from the French négliger, meaning to neglect, to disregard or to overlook.
