This “plus-size-pretty” nightgown was made on a special order in the mid-1930s. The gown is in near-mint condition, and may have been worn just once or twice. The gown is listed in both the “Plus-Size Pretties” and “Richard’s Collection” categories. Click on one of the 'Gloria' models to explore our special Boutiques!
This is one of our larger nightgowns in the silk crepe-de-chine fabric. It is beautifully styled, and will present a most-flattering appearance on a person of almost any size. Our ‘Gloria’ is a size 33…. stands 5’ – 11”, and the gown fits her with room to spare! There is no constricting crosswise waist seam, so the waist measurement is one inch larger than the 43” bust size.
Under the bust cups, you’ll find four rows of tight and precise smocking, which allows for up to a “DD” cup bra size. The neckline is deeply-cut, both front and back, and is edged with cotton lace trim.
The gown has been recently hand-laundered, and is ready to wear, and is fit for a Star – YOU – the Leading Lady of your life!
