      I love the Long LB Nightgown for lounging. It is very comfortable but I use the matching Peignoir for obvious reasons.

        Absolutely the best gown my wife has ever had. She ordered a number of these styles over the years and wants to order more. They are comfortable, and I must say, very flattering!

              Love this nightgown. Light, comfortable and easy to sleep in. Sizing is very generous, and the lace is stretchy and not itchy at all.

                The fit is great and it feels comfortable after wearing all night. My size is between L and XL. I bought the XL and it is still snug enough in all the right places. My under bust is 35” and hips 47”. I bought the matching robe so I can wear this in any season.

                                        Hi Laura, we are still using the same fabrics as always. If you are comparing it to a nightgown you have had for a while, note that it does get softer over time with continued washing. Thanks for being a repeat customer!

                                        This is exactly what I was looking for for years! Comfortable to sleep in, and makes you feel sexy in a less than perfect body. Order by your top size, skirt is plenty full for larger bottoms!

                                                I found Shadowline last year and purchased two of these nightgowns. I love the gentle support. The nightgowns have worn so well, I decided to get a few more and the matching robe. Definitely recommended.

                                                  Beautiful and comfortable! The fabric transitions well between summer and winter temperatures and is washable. A word of warning: the top of the nightgown is, in fact, solely lace, so the matching robe may be a good idea if you plan to wear it around other people. It also makes me feel like a romance heroine, which is always a selling point in my book!

They are light weight and don’t get in the way when you are sleeping. They cover you up so you are presentable. They make you feel like a princess.

They wear VERY well through repeated washings and are so flattering. Other long gowns bunch up during sleep but the empire waist of the Shadowline gowns prevents this; another reason I buy them. I am 5′ 7″ and almost 170 pounds, so the 3X size fits me perfectly. My only wish is that they came in more colors – emerald green would be nice and it used to come in a deep purple.

I ordered 3 long nightgowns from your company. They are all a bit different but I love them all. This nightgown is comfortable and a bit semi- sheer. It is still flattering and a bit sexy. For large busted woman this gown is very flattering. Because the gown is a bit sheer try to add the bath robe when children or others are around.

They have a lovely shape, feel nice against the skin and (important to me) have substantial straps instead of the usual, flimsy ones we see on most nighties. The colours (red, navy) are as pictured, just perfect. I purchased 2 nighties – one Medium, one Large — and although both fit nicely and look great, find that the Large is just a bit more comfy. I’m 5’7″ and weigh around 150 lb. And Cindy G in Customer Service was super-helpful! Much appreciated!!

I ordered the long lace bodice nightgown in black and it is perfect! I love how it fits yet it is comfortable. It reminds me of the Olga nightgown I wore years ago. My nightgown came quickly and in perfect condition. I am so pleased I ordered another one in perifrost.

I now have ALL the colors in long and short and I am now planning and looking forward to buying the newest style in the “High Low” gown… These are so nice that I also were them on a dressy night out such as New Years, music and dancing etc. Shadowline is so helpful and I will continue wearing their lingerie and nightgowns. I am also so grateful that my late wife allowing me to wear and liking me in nightgowns… I suggest more guys to try these – you will love them.

It is GORGEOUS. Perfect fit, romantic sweep and cut low enough to be seductive yet demure. I love it and can’t wait to wear it. I want to get others – and might get the shorter one. It too looks like it will make me soooooo happy!! Thank you Shadowline!! Great products and beautiful styles.

The empire waist and flowing bottom is so amazing on your body. Order these because they are beautiful and will last forever. Great quality!!!!

This is my first time trying Shadowline and I will be buying again in the future. The length is perfect. Being short, I was worried it would drag the floor but it doesn’t. So any short ladies like me, no need to worry about the gown being too long.

Since I was a high schooler in North Carolina, I have had Shadowline lingerie; in fact my peignoir set for my wedding night was by Shadowline, and that was over fifty years ago!

                                                                                        • Kathleen (verified owner)

                                                                                          • Merelina Ponsonby

                                                                                              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:

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.
                                                                                              • All of our products are listed in US sizing. Shopping from abroad? Use the conversion chart below to find your US size equivalent:
