Beribboned Beauty! 40s Unworn Rayon Crepe-De-Chine Nightgown Sz- 39+ (#1063)
Like the nearby-listed “Lustrous Lady” nightgown, this is another of a group of exceptionally beautiful gowns from the WW-2 era. The gown is in wonderful, never-worn condition, and features a 12-inches deep hem flounce. This was also a hard to find lingerie piece, especially as it is in a rarely-found larger size. You will find this gown listed in both the “Nightgowns” and “Richard’s Collection” departments. Click on one of the 'Gloria' models to find our special Boutiques!Like the two other “WW-2 era” nightgowns, this gown was made to the highest standards. The “pinked” seam allowances are as sharp as the day the gown was made, indicating that the gown was carefully-stored for many years. The fabric is the finest kind of rayon crepe-de-chine that we know of! It’s that “swishy” kind of rayon…. guaranteed to make noise as the flouncy skirt swishes against your legs!
Two ribbon bows are “strategically” placed….. one on the breastbone – the other in the lower skirt. The gown is well-suited for the full-bosomed woman, and the many bodice gathers will accomodate up to a D cup bra. We found a pit-to-pit measurement of almost 40 inches, and three inches lower - we measured an approximate 39-plus inches around the cup area of the bust.
We are so proud to offer this “Beribboned Beauty, as it is ready to wear and fit for a star – YOU – the Leading Lady in your Life!
