1930s - 1940s Pink Rayon Nightgown Lingerie Size Large

This vintage rayon nightgown, size Large, is from the late 30's to early 40's. It is unworn and in mint condition. Silky, sweet pink lingerie perfect for Valentine's Day gift. It is floor length with bust 36 and distinctive Art Deco lines.

Bust 36, Empire waist 30, natural waist line 32, hip 38, length from shoulder to hem 55 & 1/5 inches.

Fabric: so soft pink rayon of medium weight (not sheer) with a silky, satin finish.

Lace: soft ecru in color. So gorgeous in it's very detailed, intricate design. Done on a net field the design of floral and flourishes is absolutely FABULOUS.

In today's world this would make a fabulous evening gown. It is so Hollywood Ala Jean Harlow.

How wonderful to find such an exquisite gown in a larger size!

The one piece gown features a criss cross bodice achieved with wide bands of the silky, satin smooth rayon. These bands are lavishly trimmed with ecru lace from the empire waist line to the back of the shoulders. This gathered lace forms cap sleeves.

Gathering under the bust line is covered by the wide flourish of lace. I've given side view pictures so you can see the marvelous fit this will give around the bust.

The bodice is attached to the floor length skirt at the empire waist. The back bodice has a deep "v". There are self fabric ribbons at the waist line used to hold adjust waist and hold in fullness.

The skirt is an elegant, gentle flare from under the bust to the floor. The gown is cut on the bias so the fit is forgiving and fitted without use of pleats or darts.

This gown was likely a treasured piece or perhaps a gift. From a bride who had too many pieces to wear them all on her honeymoon. This one was tucked away to be discovered for you, decades later.

Embroidered Label: Forty Winks with the image of a winking owl.

Condition: unworn with original folds still showing as it came from the store. I found some VERY light spots on the front where the gown was folded. These should come out with dry cleaning or a gentle hand wash. These spots are so light they will not photograph.

No holes, odor or wear of any kind. The "sizing" is still in the fabric and lace just as it came from the store!
