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.
Silver Screen Loungerie offers vintage lingerie items of the highest quality. While we occasionally find a “new/old stock” piece, most of our items have been gently worn by a previous or original owner. By definition, “vintage” means “old”, and we take great care in restoring these pieces, as much as possible, to their original beauty.
This retro styled silk nightgown was made in the mid-1930s, and shows almost no signs of prior wear. The gown is displayed in the Nightgowns and Bridal Trousseau categories. Click on one of the 'Gloria' models to visit our unique boutiques! This nightgown is made from a fine silk crepe-de-chine, and we found no holes and no stains in the fabric. The gown appears to have been made with great care, as all the seams are very tiny French seams. (The tiniest French seams that we’ve ever seen!) The sharply-diagonal bodice seams provide a large bust measurement of 39 inches, and the waist measurement is 37 inches. There is a self-fabric waist tie with loops at the sides.
The gown appears to have been worn very little. We simply hand-laundered and pressed it to remove wrinkles from long storage. The bodice is attractively detailed, with lines of drawn-work radiating out from the lace-enhanced neckline.
On our 5’ – 10” ‘Gloria’ model, the bias-cut gown is 57 inches long - falling to just above her ankles. For a gown that was made so many years ago, it is so desirable. It is ready to wear, and wonderful for a 2013 Star – YOU – the Leading Star of your own Life!
