DKNY is a younger, more affordable line of Donna Karan, whose design house has been offering couture quality at mainstream prices since the 1980’s.
Her petite sleepwear and loungewear line includes casual separates in luxury fabrics.
Girly boxer shorts or lounge pants mix and match with tanks and camisoles in flirty prints and colors.
She also offers caftans, chemises, nightshirts, robes and panty sets.
Soft jersey and easy fit fabrics with a body-conscious cling make up most of her pieces, although you can also find DKNY sleepwear in cotton, cashmere blends and micro fiber.
If you’re looking for something feminine and romantic, Natori lingerie may be just what you're looking for.
One of my personal favorites, the Natori line of nightgowns and sleepwear specializes in long flowing gowns, enchanting chemises and beautiful robes in satin and silk, edged in delicate imported lace.
With classic straight line skimming styles, Natori’s petites know exactly how to flatter your body when and where you want it most.
Natori is classic high end sleepwear that's sexy and elegant. Their nightgowns and robes retail on average for upwards of $100.
Kensie offers fun, flirty, colorful sleepwear for the petite hipster.
Her line consists mainly of mix and match separates like shorts, ladies boxers, tanks and jaunty lounge dresses in cotton and natural fabrics.
Using details such as pin tucking, ruffles, prints and drawstrings, Kensie is on the more casual side of the spectrum, but very popular with college aged women looking for quality and style on a student’s tight budget.
If you enjoy flair and fashion that makes an impression in a big way, take a look at Kensie.
