We at Silver Screen Loungerie, endeavor to offer vintage lingerie items of the highest quality possible. While we sometimes find the occasional “new/old stock” piece, most of our items have been gently worn by just one previous owner. By definition, “vintage” means “old”, and we take great care in restoring items – as much as possible – to their original beauty.
This large-size nightgown is one of the brightest and “shimmeriest” nightgowns that we’ve ever seen! The gown bears the well-known Seamprufe label, and the “44” indicates the true 44 inches bust measurement. A smaller label of the original owner – “Rachel Cowan” – is attached nearby.
The gown has a surplice-wrapped V neckline in front, with a deep V neckline in back. It is a loose-fitting gown that will accommodate a wide range of dress sizes. This would be fine for sizes 36 to 44, and the attached ties will snug in the waist to fit. The gown is also quite long at 59 inches… the hem goes to just below Gloria’s ankles.
This gown is so beautifully styled that it can also be worn as a bridal gown, or as a stunning evening dress! The gown will be a joy to YOU, the fortunate buyer, and the STAR of your own Life!
