Bur-Mil Beauty! 1940s NOS 'Eastern Isles' Bias-Cut Rayon Nightgown~ Sz 38 (#1608)
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, goddesses & glamour queens, vixens & vamps, ladies & lasses, 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 seductive WW-2 era rayon nightgown conjures up visions of Hollywood’s femme fatale actresses from the early 1940s era! You will find this Bur-Mil Beauty listed in the Nightgowns and Bridal Trousseau departments. Click on one of the 'Gloria' models to explore our unique boutiques! This garment bears the well-known “Eastern Isles” label, and we found the gown to be in mint condition. The fabric is that wonderful crepe-de-chine weave of rayon that is no longer being made. This Burlington Mills fabric has the same lustrous finish on both sides. Turn the gown inside-out, and you’ll not see or feel any difference! Once you slip into this nightgown, you may never want to take it off!
The gown features a deep neckline that is finished with an intricate scalloping stitch. It also has contrasting-colour appliqués in the center. A self-fabric bow can pull in the neckline a bit more, but we left it as original. As worn by our 5’ – 10” ‘Gloria’ model, the gown drapes 56-1/2 inches to just above her ankles. As always, please be aware that the stated measurements are those of the gown itself. Your own body measurements should be less.
We offer this gown that is so sensual to wear, and gives you a definite glamour queen look!
