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 occasionally find a “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 these pieces – as much as possible, to their original beauty.
This never worn silk nightgown dates from the 1970s, and it is in perfect condition for its 45-some years of age! This gown is listed in both the Nightgowns and the Bridal Trousseau categories. Click on a 'Gloria' model to view our unique boutiques!
This nightgown is made from a medium-weight silk satin, often referred to as “charmeuse” satin. The gown drapes beautifully, and can easily be worn as an exciting evening dress!
The gown bears the well-known “Peony 100% Silk” label – still an active company in Shanghai, China. The bodice features surplice-wrapped “V” necklines – both front and back, and the waist is defined by embroidery and cut-out figures in the shaped midriff area. The bias-cut skirt drapes beautifully, and there are attached waist ties to snug in for a perfect fit.
The gown is extremely well-made with French seams at the sides. The neckline and armhole edges are finished with a scalloping stitch, and the hem actually has a quintuple scallop finish – five small scallops within one larger scallop!
As modeled by our 5’ – 10” Gloria, the gown falls 59 inches to just even with her ankles. The gown will be a joy to YOU, the fortunate buyer, and the STAR of your own Life!
