Elegant Elysée! 1940s Black Rayon Satin Bias-Cut Nightgown~ Sz-34 (#1698)
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 elegant 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 a glossy rayon satin fabric, and it’s in wonderful condition for its 65-some years of age! The pinked seam allowances show gentle signs of wear, and the seams themselves are as strong as they originally were. There are no holes or stains that we could find. The “Elysée 54” label is stitched inside the back V neckline, but there is no size tag. We measured an exact 34 inches around the bust area, with a measurement of 30 inches around the waist area. (These measurements are those of the garment itself, and your own body measurements should be less).
We think this is one of the most daring nightgowns that we’ve ever seen – regardless of era! The all-lace bodice is as eye-catching on exits as it is on entrances!
On our 5’ – 10” ‘Gloria’ model, the skirt extends 59 inches to just below her ankles. For a gown that was made in the 1940s, this one is so desirable - ready to wear, and fit for today’s Star – YOU – the Leading Star of your own Life!
