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, 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 fancy nightgown is a recent addition to Richard’s fabulous collection in the New Jersey ‘HQ’ of Silver Screen Loungerie! The gown is listed here in both the Bridal Trousseau and Richard’s Collection categories.
This Irresistible Satin nightgown is made from a special blend of the silk and rayon fibers. Silk – for that wonderful luster, and rayon for added strength. There is only the fabric tag - no maker’s label. The gown has never-before been worn or laundered, and the fabric still retains its original crispness. When laundered for the first time, this “crispness” will become the softness that we all expect from the best 100% silks!
The gown features a bodice that is trimmed with silk chiffon and lace, and has a perky velvet bow in the front V neckline. There is tight and precise smocking under the breasts – to accomodate up to a ‘D’ cup. A 3-1/2 inches-wide chiffon flounce appears at the hem.
This beautiful nightgown is as ready to wear as the 1940s day when it was made! The gown is perfect for a Goddess – YOU – the Irresistible Goddess of your own Life!
