Diagonal Sheer Goddess! 1940s NOS Satin-Striped Rayon Chiffon Nightgown~ Sz- 38 (#1651)
Welcome to Silver Screen Loungerie! - The online mecca for vintage lingerie aficionados. This is where sirens & stars, 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.
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 satin-striped rayon chiffon nightgown is in mint-unworn condition… amazing for its 65 to 70 years of age! The nightgown features a very-sheer chiffon fabric which is embedded with diagonal, ribbon-like strips of satin. The fabric is actually woven in this manner… the strips are not applied later. The sheer fabric is in perfect condition, with no holes or stains that we could find. There are a few fold lines visible from long-time storage, but we didn’t want to launder and iron the piece. The fold lines will be gone after first laundering. There is no maker's label... just a Size 38 tag.
The bodice is beautifully-designed, and has a lacy, inverted ‘V’ midriff that meets the bottom of the lace-trimmed “V” neckline. There are no waist ties, and with this very-biasy skirt, no ties are needed! On our in-house ‘Gloria’ model, (5’ -10”), the hem just touches her ankles. As always, the measurements stated are those of the garment itself. For best fit, your own body measurements should be slightly less.
For a gown that was made more than 65 years ago, this diagonally-striped gown is so desirable… ready to wear, and fit for a Goddess – YOU – the Sheer Goddess of your own Life!
