How to look great -

  • Look for small details that will make the most of your shape, like beautiful lace edging along the neckline or sleeves
  • For a true vintage nightgown look, consider styles with a satin ribbon tie that sits just below the bustline for a universally flattering look
  • Keep in mind that that while it’s easy to get carried away with the dramatic flare of beautiful ruffles and flouncing styles of vintage nightgowns, make sure that you’re not drowning in excess fabric or styles that are too overwhelming for your sihouette

Did You Know?

True vintage lingerie, reproduction-quality lingerie and intimate apparel is delicate and should be hand-cleaned or dry-cleaned to prevent damage to the fabric.


Cotton Sleepwear Never Goes Out of Style

Like everything else, fashion constantly changes.  And, it can be incredibly frustrating to spend money on something you purchase, only to have it fall out of fashion the next season, especially when it comes to ladies sleepwear.

The solution?  Classic sleepwear. Long or short, the advantage to simple classic nightgowns, chemises, and nightwear is a timeless look and feel.  Simple or luxurious, the ultimate classic white cotton sleepwear never goes out of style.

Since its debut in the 1800s, and with continuing interest in popular novels and films like Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights, the vintage look continues to be a crave worthy sleepwear choice for women everywhere.


Luxurious Cotton Nightgowns Make The Perfect Gift

Stylishly feminine and undeniably luxurious, Victorian nightgowns are not only an amazing nightwear choice to indulge in, they’re also a sensational gift for that special person in your life that you want to impress.

Whether it’s a Christmas gift, a birthday treat, a beautiful nightwear option for a bride-to-be, or just because, a romantic white cotton Victorian nightgown is always a great choice.

Vintage Nightgowns Can Be Sexy

One wouldn’t ordinarily think of Victorian nightgowns as provocative or sexy, but they most certainly can be.

Not overtly like sheer lingerie or naughty sexy lingerie, but subtly so with an enticing, ethereal appeal.  How?

  • To show a little more skin, choose a short sleeveless nighty that shows off sexy shoulders and long shapely legs - a way to show off a curvy shape
  • Long nightgowns can be just as sexy as short nightgowns - consider a style with a plunging neckline that shows off a sexy decolletage
  • Keep the Victorian vibe going with a subtle dose of sexiness - tousled hair, a dab perfume on pressure points - on your wrists or at the bottom of your neck, smokey makeup, or a pedicure with ruby red polish
