One of the “dreamiest” dressing gowns from the 1930s, and it is in near-mint condition! This dressing gown is perfect under a simple slip or nightgown, or over nothing at all! On “SSL”, the gown is shown in both the Dressing Gowns and Richard’s Collection categories. Click on one of the 'Gloria' models to explore our special boutiques!
We at Silver Screen Loungerie, are dedicated to offering vintage lingerie items of the highest quality possible. While we sometimes find the occasional “new/old stock” piece, most of our items have been either gently or moderately worn by a previous owner. By definition, “vintage” means “old”, and we take great care in restoring the items – as much as possible – to their original beauty.
This gown has only two closures at the centre opening… a hook & eye fastener at the neckline, and another just above the waistline. There are belt loops at the sides, and a brown silk ribbon (not original) is provided. We show the robe over a never-worn silk slip, which will be available soon. Actually, SSL has many ivory-coloured slips and nightgowns… any one of them would be perfect under this robe!
This dressing gown has no flaws that we could find… not even a mark from a stepped-on hem! The ruffles are double-thickness, and go all the way around the double-layer yoke. Given that this dressing gown is at least 70 years old, it’s indeed fortunate that it was found in such beautiful condition. The quality of the silk georgette fabric is unequaled in today’s world.
Our ‘Gloria’ model stands 5’ – 11” tall, and is 33 inches around the bust. No matter what (if anything!) is worn underneath, the gown looks so beautiful on her! Whether worn in the boudoir, or as a charming hostess gown, this garment is wonderful on YOU -- the Star of your own Life!
