Luxurious, silky-soft comfort is the hallmark of Shadowline Lingerie.
Creators of fine quality lingerie since 1914, we’re still a family-owned company to this day which now comprises three brands: Shadowline®, Velrose® and Dixie Belle®.
|Our trademarked fabrics, Opacitrique® and Satintrique®, set the bar high when it comes to delivering the utmost comfort as well as beauty. Both made in the US from 100% nylon tricot, they each provide an amazingly light and smooth feel – one with unrivaled opacity and a fabulous drape, and the other with a floatier fit, semi-sheer look, and pearlescent finish.
Above all though, it’s our dedication to consistently high quality that has kept us in business through all of these years. For example, we trim our fabrics with soft laces and non-scratchy embroideries, for pretty touches you’ll love having right next to your skin. High-grade charmeuse gives our satin pieces a silk-like appearance at a more affordable price point, and many of our satin and cotton batiste garments are cut on the bias – a premium sewing technique which leads to clothing that skims beautifully (and comfortably!) around the body.
Plus, we’re size inclusive! Our ranges are offered up to a 3X in sleepwear, a 5X in many skirt slips, and a size 50 in selected camisoles and slip dresses to accommodate and flatter fuller busts. Additionally, our Dixie Belle® underwear is available in extended sizing up to a size 15, which fits up to 60” hips. But no matter which size you choose, you can rely on Shadowline® sleepwear to offer a sumptuous and forgiving fit.
Similar to the generous fit of our sleepwear, Shadowline® panties are distinctive for their traditional full-brief shape, popular both with those who want a retro look and those who simply appreciate the enhanced coverage and comfort. For the customer who wants something more contemporary, we also offer hipsters and high-cut legs. Made from the same silky-soft nylons as the sleepwear, these panties come in a choice of pure nylon (for a true vintage fit and feel) or a nylon-spandex blend, and are finished with a sewn-in crotch of breathable cotton.
In need of a slip? No matter the outfit, we’ve got a style to suit it! Our product range includes full slips, half slips, pettipants, pettilegs, culottes, and pant liners, made in a variety of fabrics, colors, and lengths. You’ll love the convenience of our Velrose® Snip-It collection with parallel rows of lace at the hem, which can be individually snipped away (no sewing required!) if you need to shorten it.
Other bestsellers include the Dixie Belle® Scallop Trim Full Brief Panty, the Shadowline® Peignoir Set (a glamorous nightgown and robe that’s particularly popular with brides and the vintage-minded), and of course, our iconic Petals collection which includes the number one travel set in the industry. Customers love that these nylon sleepwear pieces fold up compactly for easy packing, won’t wrinkle during the journey, and can be easily slipped into for comfort and coverage while staying away from home.
We’re immensely proud of the loyal customer base that we have built up, who appreciate everything that we’ve worked so hard to keep the same from one decade to the next. But we’re constantly innovating and evolving too. Today, it’s our goal to meet the needs of the modern woman while still maintaining the original vintage charm that made Shadowline®, Velrose® and Dixie Belle® so very popular in the first place. We’re a true classic-meets-contemporary lingerie brand!
