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, femme fatales & pop princesses, goddesses & glamour queens, vixens & vamps, ladies & lasses, 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 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 never-worn silk nightgown was made in the late-1940s, and it still bears its original tags and labels! The gown is one of the best made out of the silk crepe-de-chine fabric, and it is displayed in the Nightgowns and Richard’s Collection categories. Click on one of the 'Gloria' models to visit our unique boutiques!
This nightgown has been hand-laundered to remove dust and wrinkles from long storage. Besides Radelle’s “Giftcette” embroidered label, the original tags include, Sibley’s $10.95 price tag, a sewn-in “Size 36” and “Color – Pink” tag, and a gold-coloured Radelle hangtag with care instructions. Sibley’s (Sibley, Lindsay & Carr Co. is now long-closed, but it was the largest department store between New York and Chicago.)
According to the hangtag, “Smart Women Prefer Sculptured Lingerie”, and we agree! This is one of the most beautifully “sculptured” nightgowns that we’ve ever seen! The bodice is so attractively designed, and has encased ties to pull in the fabric under the breasts.
On our 5’ – 10” ‘Gloria’ model, the gown is 57 inches long - falling to just above her ankles. This sculptured beauty is ready to wear, and wonderful for a 2013 Star – YOU – the Leading Star of your own Life!
