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, 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 is one of Richard's most-treasured silk lingerie pieces, and it occupies a special corner in our New Jersey ‘HQ’ of Silver Screen Loungerie.
The gown is truly one of the best silks from the mid-1930s, and miraculously, it has never been worn! The gown was made from a gossamer, crepe-chiffon fabric, (a semi-sheer,) and it was sold from the up-scale Saks Fifth Avenue store in New York City. One of the pictures shows clearly that the gown was made in France.
Although the gown fits ‘ideally’ on a size 34 figure, the thin fabric and the bias-cut combine to make this gown just fine for sizes 32 through 36. The 63-inch length is sure to please the taller woman, although high heels will help the woman with shorter stature.
A detachable scarf-type belt is provided, but we think the gown looks a bit more “sleek” if worn without the belt. Your choice!
