Welcome to Silver Screen Loungerie! - The online mecca for vintage lingerie aficionados. This is where sirens & stars, sex-pots & pin-ups, bombshells & brides, divas & kittens, it-girls & party girls, femme fatales & pop princesses, goddesses & glamour queens, vixens & vamps, ladies & lasses, starlets & harlots, and Über fashionistas shop for the vintage lingerie of their dreams.
We at Silver Screen Loungerie, offer vintage lingerie items of the highest quality. While we sometimes find the occasional “new/old stock” piece, like this one, 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.
This beautifully-made silk nightgown is one of the most glamorous lingerie pieces that we have seen from the mid-1930s. The fabric is a true silk charmeuse-satin - unique to the 1930s. The silk fabric is incredibly soft, and it looks and feels the same as the day when this nightgown was made! There is no makers label, as most lingerie from this era was made “one-of-a-kind” for just one customer.
The gown features V necklines – front and back, with cape-like panels over the shoulders. A double-fabric bow is placed at the top of the diamond-shaped midriff panel. It is an exceptionally well-made gown with the seam allowances showing no fuzz on the pinked points. There are no stains and no holes that we could find.
On our 5’ – 10” Gloria model, the gown drapes 59-1/2 inches to below her ankles. This wonderful nightgown is as ready to wear as the 1930s day when it was made, and is perfect for a Goddess – YOU – the Romantic Goddess of your own Life!
