    It’s very comfortable. The flutter sleeve allows for great shoulder and arm mobility during sleep. I love the long length as well. My mother wore the shadow line pajamas. I prefer the gown. I’ve been wearing shadow line for 30 years

    I haven’t worn this yet, since it is not Winter, but I have wanted this nightgown for a while. I think it will be a perfect addition to my collection of all my Shadowline gowns. Having the length for cold nights but having my arms free will be perfect.

    Love these gowns. I have worn this style for years. My only complaint is I ordered navy and got the bright blue. I already have a bright blue.

    I loved the Long Flutter Sleeve nightgown so much in the Sea Foam I came back and bought it in Rasberry well as the matching robe in Periwinkle.
    I like the long length because even if it rides up in the night I don’t end up with my behind exposed. I can sit however I like without worrying about accidentally flashing my kids.
    The fabric feels silky, lightweight, doesn’t get tangled in one’s legs. If you’re traveling, it’s easy to hand wash and dries quickly. Overall the nightgown feels like a serendipitous discovery to me!

    I’ve been wearing these gorgeous gowns since I was around 20 yrs.old. Will wear nothing else to sleep in. I bought some of the lighter shades because there have been no new opaque colors for a long time. I don’t like them because you can see through!! Please bring black some new opaque colors!! Please!!!!

    Wow factor of 9!! I usually won’t sleep in a gown with sleeves but I thought I would give “flutter” sleeves a try. They are sleeves, but not really. I truly LOVE this gown! I knew the material would be kinda see through so I ordered the darker color and I am going to buy more! Nothing says feminine like a long, silky gown!

    I have been wearing the long Shadowline Petals since the 1980s. I can’t say enough good things about them. Comfortable wash after wash, and they are slow to disintegrate. My question is–why aren’t there any RED or BLACK petals nightgowns? I have one of each and would like to buy some new ones, but they have been discontinued. Will they EVER make a comeback? Please say yes.

    No other brand compares with Shadowline. Even without the robe (which I love with my gown), I feel my modesty is not compromised.

    I weigh 135-140 pounds and am 5’4″ tall. The medium size is perfect – nice and loose and ALMOST touching the floor.

    Been wearing Shadowline gowns for as long as I can remember. They are perfect for hot nights being made out of a lovely lightweight silk material. I’ve tried other brands and nothing else quite compares. I love the vintage feel of them and I’m surprised more young people don’t start buying them.

    I have worn these nightgowns for 17 years and most are 14 to 17 years old and look like new. I am just now replacing 3 at a time. Well worth the money. I have never had a nightgown that has lasted anywhere near this long

    I love these and own 8 different ones. I wish you had a deep burgundy or merlot color. You had it several years back but never saw it again. Any chance you may bring that color back?

    Manufacturer’s Response: The Petals Collection included “Magenta” a few years ago. New colors are introduced annually so keep checking!

  72. Nicky

    These are absolutely the finest nighties I have ever had. I now have 8, mostly full-length. My wife urged me to get rid of 2 nighties from another brand, so I replaced them with 2 more from the Petals Collection. Colors don’t fade, and they hold up year after year. Love to lounge around the house in my Shadowline nighties! Will someday purchase panties to match the many colors of my nighties.

    I bought a total of 5 for my wife at different times along with the sleeveless gowns of the same color. She loves these gowns because the are well made and they don’t ride up during the night, they hold their colors after every wash, even the sun doesn’t fade them. She wishes she could get the same colors in panties.. She also wonders why the color WHITE isn’t offered in these gowns or any of the other gowns for that matter .

    I have one long petals gown my favorite aunt bought me before she died 17 years ago and I still use it even though I’ve lost lots of weight since then. I recommend any Shadowline product for their softness and durability. Even the stretch lace isn’t scratchy. I prefer the petals long in flutter sleeves or long and hope you never stop making them.

    I love petals! I have close to a dozen different colors. I wear a 28+ and easily fit into the 3X (I could do a 2X too but prefer all the extra room.) The lighter colors can be translucent with the darker being more opaque. They wash easily and clean well. They are well made, soft and comfortable. I’ve had some for over 12 years (Christmas Green!)

Size Guide >

Using a fabric tape measure, obtain body measurements as follows and compare to the size chart below.

BUST:  Measure around your body at fullest part of bust, keeping tape under arms and fairly level front to back. Larger busted women will have a more accurate reading if bra is worn during measurement.

WAIST:  Measure around your natural waistline holding the tape comfortably loose.

HIPS: Stand with heels together. Measure around hips at fullest part (approx. 9″ below waist).

Tips for getting the correct size are at the bottom of this page:

We have kept the original Dixie Belle panty sizing, which fits a little smaller than Shadowline panties. Once you know your Shadowline panty size (check our size chart at the top of the page if you’re unsure), you can use the comparison chart below to find your equivalent size in Dixie Belle:


Additional sizing tips:

  • Bust measurements are more important for full slips, camisoles and garments with loose, flowing bottoms such as nightgowns or sleepshirts.
  • Hip measurements are more important for garments with closer fitting bottoms like slips, pajamas and panties.
  • If one of your measurements falls in a larger size or you prefer very loose garments, you may be more comfortable in selecting a larger size.
  • Shadowline sizes garments for generous comfort. If you prefer your clothing form fitting, you may want to order a smaller size.
  • Slip lengths (full and half slips) are measured from the waist down – nightgowns and sleepshirts are measured from the shoulder down.
  • Bra size is NOT the same thing as bust size. Generally, you can convert by adding bra band size (i.e., 34, 36, etc.) to cup size in inches (A=1″, B=2″, C=3″, D=4″, DD=5″).  For example, a 34C  Bra size = 37″ Bust measurement. Measuring your body is the most accurate method for sizing.
