Shimmery Goddess! 1940s 'Busty' Bias-Cut Rayon Nightgown~ Sz- 36+ (#1663)
Welcome to Silver Screen Loungerie! - The online mecca for vintage lingerie aficionados. This is where sirens & stars, bombshells & brides, divas & kittens, it-girls & party girls, 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, 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 very-pretty nightgown is housed in the New Jersey ‘HQ’ of Silver Screen Loungerie. The nightgown is listed in both the Bridal Trousseau and Nightgowns categories. Click on one of the 'Gloria' models to visit our unique boutiques!
This nightgown is in the rayon crepe-de-chine fabric, and it’s in wonderful condition for its 65-some years of age. The pinked seam allowances show minimal signs of wear, and there are no holes or stains that we could find. This luscious kind of rayon crepe-de-chine fabric cannot be found on today’s market. It is the slinky type of rayon fabric, and if you turn the gown inside-out, you’ll not notice any difference!
This gown presents a very “busty” appearance, due to the many gathers in the bust cups. The bodice should accommodate up to a “D” cup in its 36 inches bust size. There is no maker’s label, but the gown appears to be well-made and well-cared for. There are no holes and no stains, and the “pinked” seams are strong.
On our 5’ – 10” ‘Gloria’ model, the gown extends to just even with her her ankles. For a gown that was made about 65 years ago, this one so desirable - ready to wear, and fit for today’s Goddess – YOU – the Shimmery Goddess of your own Life!
