The grisette became a frequent character in French fiction but have been mentioned as early as in 1730 by Jonathan Swift. The term, compare The grisette in poetry, signifies qualities of both flirtatiousness and intellectual aspiration, George du Maurier based large parts of Trilby on his experiences as a student in Parisian bohemia during the 1850s. Poe's 1842 story was based on the unsolved murder of Mary Cecilia Rogers near New York City, subtitled "A Sequel to 'The Murders in the Rue Morgue'", it was the first detective story to attempt the solution of a real crime.[4] The most enduring grisette is Mimi in Henri Murger’s novel (and subsequent play) Scènes de la vie de Bohème, the source for Puccini's famous opera La bohème.

Maybe my chest is just too large for it to hang as low as i would want the chest to hang. I wanted to update this review and warn people so they don't do what i did. DO NOT PUT THIS IN THE DRYER! MINE SHRUNK! I recently wore it and forgot you're supposed to line dry. The flow is ruined and it comes much higher above my ankles now!!!! I don't like it the same.
