    I love the Short LB Nightgown for sleeping. Just my preference. Very comfortable. The lace is not scratchy and the skirt is smooth.

    The elastic bodice is uncomfortable. I will not buy from the Shadowline website again because they do not pay for return shipping.

    This is a lovely nightgown. I had one many years back and have wanted to find another like it ever since; the materials feel lighter weight but are still good quality. I am large-busted, so the L size was too skimpy on top to fit well. I exchanged for the 1X size, and it provides ample coverage in the bust with a comfortable looseness in the skirt. It washes up like new each time, and the lace stretch remains supportive, comfortable and feminine. So worth the price!

    I really like this nightgown. The bodice is fitted but stretchy, and then the skirt just flows along. Since I personally don’t care for tight skirts/bottoms, this works perfectly for me.

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.
