Stunning Blue Forties! Never-Worn Rayon Satin Bias-Cut Nightgown~ Sz- 38-snug (#1687)
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 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 satin nightgown is in wonderful condition for its approximate 70 years of age! It is a full-length, bias-cut nightgown that has never-before been worn and/or laundered. The 70 years of storage have left a few wrinkles in the garment, but there are no hard creases. As some buyers like proof of “newness”, we decided against laundering at this time! The first hand-laundering (or dry cleaning) will take out the wrinkles, and the rayon fabric will be as smooth and soft as it originally was. (At the buyer’s request, we will be pleased to hand-launder the wrinkles out of the gown!)
This fab nightgown bears the well-known Lana Joyce label. Size is indicated as “36”, but we measured a snug 38 inches from “pit-to-pit.” The gown features a lace-trimmed V neckline, and it has wide satin shoulder straps. A diamond-shaped midriff panel enhances a flat tummy with a long and swishy bas-cut skirt.
On our 5’ – 10” ‘Gloria’ model, the skirt hem just grazes her pretty ankles. A stunning gown indeed… for the Stunning Lady of her own boudoir!
