This very pretty nightgown is by the quality lingerie maker, Van Raalte, it is labeled as “Myth.”

It features doubled spaghetti straps over a gorgeous, latticed lace upper bodice, some referred to this bodice cut as a “shelf bust.” Below that is a curved wide waistband, or cummerbund waistline, with a slightly gathered flared skirt attached below that.

The shelf bodice is gathered at both top and bottom providing extra fullness.

The back waistline seam is straight across, not dipped or pointed like some vintage lingerie.

Measurements:

Bust: 40” +

Top of cummerbund waistline: 36” (under-bust)

Bottom of waistline: 31” (true waistline)

Length from underarm to top of waistband: 2.75”

Length from underarm to bottom of waistband: 8”

Length from underarm to hem: 37.5” long

50” at approximate hip (8” below waistline)

Shoulder straps are 16” long from front to back. They are doubled, and looped.

76” around hem

There is a row of narrow (3/4” wide) lace trim around the hem.

Fiber: Nylon.

Condition: we found a few tiny snags, but they’re not readily visible. Overall this is in very good condition, nearly perfect; it’s very pretty, freshly laundered, and ready to wear.

*OH! the dark spot on the back view is a shadow of the mannequin, it is NOT a spot on the garment.

We love to lounge around and sleep in vintage pretties like this.
