We at Silver Screen Loungerie, offer vintage lingerie items of the highest quality. While we sometimes find the occasional “new/old stock” piece, most of our items have been gently worn by just one previous owner. By definition, “vintage” means “old”, and we take great care in restoring items – as much as possible, to their original beauty.
For such a thin, “gauzy” century-old silk piece, we were amazed to find that there are only two or three small places where the fabric was slightly on the thin side – but, there are no holes and no stains! Taken as a whole, the silk crepe fabric is in excellent condition, and the lace trim and hip pocket are in unbelievably fine condition.
This gown is cut on the straight-of-grain, and is designed to hang straight from the shoulders. No belt is provided, and there are no belt loops at the sides. A silk ribbon-belt could be added, but we feel the gown looks and feels best without a belt. As the gown is essentially a “one-size-fits-all” garment, we think this is a wonderful gown for anyone of almost any size!
We offer this beauty as a weightless boudoir gown that will be a joy to swan about the home in. It is ready to wear and fit for today’s Star – YOU – the Leading Star of your own Life!
