The Best Night Gowns Come From Around The World

While there are a ton of great shops right in our own backyard, some of the most beautiful and unique nightgowns come from around the globe.

Think silk kimono style nighties from Japan, French lace nightgowns from Paris, or beautifully printed saris from India. Shop for sleepwear on your travels, or get online for a taste of eclectic global style from the comfort of home.

Carmen's Tip

Bias-cut long nightgowns with lace or spaghetti straps are an excellent choice for showing off toned arms...and a glimpse of your cleavage.

 Specialty Lingerie Boutiques

Skip the chain stores and seek out special sleepwear boutiques that carry handmade lingerie and nightgowns that come from independent designers.

There are loads of up and coming lingerie brands that you’ll never find in major department stores.

These specialty sleepwear styles are made in smaller batches and often feature extraordinary hand crafted fabrics and finishes that will make your nightgown feel ultra luxurious and exclusive.

 Designer Nightgowns

Many high-end designers have sleepwear lines that make their chic style more accessible, while giving your pajamas a dose of style that you just wont find at the mall.

While you may not be able to afford a dress or outfit from designers like:

  • Vera Wang
  • Stella McCartney
  • Oscar de la Renta
  • Ralph Lauren

you can enjoy all the decadence of their designs by shopping their nightgowns.

Their sleepwear selection will be more of a splurge than regular department store brands, but these night gowns come at a fraction of the cost of designer clothing. Wrapping yourself in luxury nightgowns and pajamas is an indulgence that every woman deserves.

Beautiful Lingerie Boutiques

Beautiful night gowns come from places you'd never dream of! You might be looking for an elegant nightgown, but that’s no reason to pass up the naughy lingerie boutiques.

Famously scandalous brands like Agent Provocateur Lingerie and Kiki de Montparnasse are known for their kinky designs, but also have an offering of ultra high-end luxury nightgowns and pajamas.

Skip over the scantily clad mannequins and look a little closer at their opulent silk slips and ultra chic floor skimming nighties for a glamorous spin on the classic nightgown, from a place you’d never think to look.

 Vintage Clothing Shops

Set yourself apart from mass-market night gowns and turn to vintage boutiques for sleepwear that’s completely original.

Seek out chiffon babydolls, classic silk slips, Victorian nightgowns, and lace peignoir sets that are beautifully crafted in ways that we simply don’t see in modern pieces.

You’ll love the vibrant prints and patterns that come from the 60s and 70s, the sweet chiffon styles of the 50s, lacy deco-inspired sleep sets from the 20s, and even the glitz and glam of the 80s.

 Buy Lingerie Online


Shopping in person only gives you access to the stores in your town, but turn to the internet for an unlimited selection of sleepwear that you can purchase from anywhere in the world.

Look up hot British nightgown designers, up and coming Australian brands, or turn to North American brands that you might not have heard of and can’t buy in your own city.

The sky’s the limit when you’re lingerie shopping online and scoring some of the most beautiful nightgowns is right at your fingertips.
