This is one of the most romantic nightgowns we’ve ever seen – let alone, owned! It’s in a rosy-pink silk & rayon satin fabric, and it is housed in our New Jersey ‘HQ’ of Silver Screen Loungerie. You will find it listed here in the Nightgowns and Richard’s Collection categories. Click on one of our 'Gloria' models to explore our special boutiques!
We at Silver Screen Loungerie, are dedicated to offering vintage lingerie items of the highest quality. While we sometimes find the occasional “new/old stock” piece, (like this one!), most of our items have been either gently or moderately worn by a previous owner. By definition, “vintage” means “old”, and we take great care in restoring the items – as much as possible, to their original beauty.
This blended silk and rayon fabric is an ideal “marriage” of the best properties of the two fibers. The blending ratio is in the order of 5 parts silk to 1 part rayon. This makes for a stronger fabric than silk alone, but the blend retains the unique “glow” of 100% silk.
Sheer ecru lace frames both front and back necklines of the bodice, and also enhances the center-front slit at the hem. There are also centered slits in both the front and back sections of the bodice.
Other than a small surface mark in the lace right at the hem, the gown is in mint, “new/old stock” condition. On our 5’ – 11” ‘Gloria’ model, the gown drapes to just below her ankles. (60-1/2 inches) We are very excited about this gown… which is among the most beautiful of the 1940s. It is also one of the most beautiful gowns in the Year 2011!
