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, 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 is one of our prettiest two-piece silk pajama sets from the late 1930s! This shimmery beauty is in excellent condition, with a flared top and a very-wide-legged pant. This pink party treasure is displayed here in the Lounging Pajamas and Plus-Size Pretties categories. Click on one of the 'Gloria' models to visit our unique boutiques!
This very-loose-fitting 2-piece pajama set has no maker’s label, but it appears to have been custom-made with a larger woman in mind. The bust measurement (of the top) measures a generous 42 inches – from “pit-to-pit”, and the pant waistline measures 32 inches. There is a tiny elastic cord running through a casing. This cord has lost its elasticity but can be replaced by an expert tailor. Alternately, darts could be made over the front and back of the hips.
The set is not matched. Both pieces are made of silk crepe fabric, but the pant is slightly heavier than the top. The top features contrasting blue inserts and pink embroidery along the V neckline. The extra-wide pants legs are 45 inches around… among the widest that we’ve ever seen. All edges are bound with strips of bias self-fabric, and both pieces are finished with French seams.
The set is in excellent condition - looking much the same as it did on the day when it was made! On our 5’ – 10” ‘Gloria’ model, the pant extends to even with her ankles. Please be aware that the stated measurements are those of the garment itself. For best fit, your own body measurements should be slightly less.
