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, it-girls & party girls, femme fatales & pop princesses, goddesses & glamour queens, vixens & vamps, ladies & lasses, starlets & harlots, 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 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 luxurious nightgown was made by Dwalyne, but is incorrectly labeled as “Nylon Tricot”! The gown is most-definitely made from a fine, silk crepe-de-chine fabric – a unique fabric that has the same finish on both sides. Turn the gown inside-out, and you’ll not see or feel any difference! This nightgown has never-before been worn or laundered, and it still bears its original size tag (34) and store tag – “Doop’s”.
The gown features satin appliqués along the front neckline, with the armholes and back neckline finished with a unique “shell-stitch pattern. The skirt has all French seams, and the bodice is also French seamed. Even the shoulders are French seamed!
On our 5’ – 10” ‘Gloria’ model, the gown drapes 60 inches to just below her ankles. For a gown that was made so many years ago, it is so desirable! It is ready to wear, and wonderful for a 2013 Star – YOU – the Leading Star of your own Life!
