    The nightgown is gorgeous. It is beautiful. It fits smooth. It’s like silk on me and I love it. Thank you.

    My second one of these. I love the peri frost color, but why is it not available in the blush pink color? That would be really cute.

    Are usually purchase a long length nightgown, which I love, but this time I decided to purchase this shorter, and I am thinking they would be of the same texture as the long ones. They are not. I am disappointed by this.

      Hi Mary, thanks for being a repeat customer! This nightgown is made from our Satintrique® nylon which is our lighter, floatier nylon fabric, and we note that your previous orders have all been for nightgowns made from our Opacitrique® nylon which is a little heavier and more opaque. If you’d like a short nightgown in the Opacitrique® fabric, we have plenty to choose from – take a look at the Petals, Cameo, Beloved, Cherish, Rosebud and Twilight collections.

    I have been wearing this nightgown for years. I have it in all colors. It is the very best and most comfortable nightgown ever.

    Perfect, the lace stretches & does not bind your arms while sleeping.

    I have 4 of the long gowns in this style. They will remain my favorites, but this nightie is very cute and very sweet. It works great when worn with a pair of your satintrique panties. I am thinking it will be nice for summer wear. Same silky softness and floaty feel as the long gowns. Probably will buy one in the peri frost color.

    Stunning quality and unavailable in department stores these days. This gown and the satin V neck lace gown favorites. Beautiful gift for a daughter or daughter in law.

    Heavenly! I wasn’t quite sure about this since I normally don’t wear sleeves on my nightgowns but this is almost like not having sleeves at all. Very comfortable. Think I’ll try a different color next time.

    Not only looks fantastic but so very comfortable. This gown is easy to care for. I have washed it several times. The color is just as bright now as the day I received it.

    Beautiful and elegant. Longer than pictured. It comes down to mid-calf.

      Hi Jane, we’re glad you liked the nightgown! This one is a 40″ length, but will of course fall higher or lower on the leg depending on your height. Most of our short nightgowns are 40″, but our 36510 nightgown is another short sleeved style which is 38″ for those who prefer a shorter fit.

    Age: : I bought this for my granddaughter. She is 24. She loves it. I gave her two of the long gowns and wanted to let her try the short version also. She really likes both.

    Beautiful! Just beautiful. The fit is as expected. This gown wears well. Easy to wash and dry.

    This gown is so pretty. The lace and bow hold their shape even after washing. My husband likes it way better than any of my other sleepwear.

    I love this nightgown. It’s so light and airy. The lace is such a nice touch to the top & sleeves.

    Absolutely adored the fabric, the length, the soft and wearable lace. Needs a wash before wearing, but washes well.

    Really nice, it feels good and I do not know I have it on to sleep in. Just what I was looking for. I have one & buying my second one.

    I bought the PeriFrost and just loved it, but I had to send it back. The problem was it was very thin. You could see right through it ! I’m 73 years old so I want to be covered up. I was so disappointed.

    I love Shadowline gowns. However, they are very thin and can see through them, compared to years past. Please a little conservative.

      Hi Shirley, this nightgown is part of our Silhouette collection, which is designed for a more glamorous look. It’s our only sleepwear collection currently that’s made using our Satintrique® nylon – as you’ve noted, it’s slightly sheer (especially in lighter colors). If you prefer an opaque finish, no problem! All of our other nylon sleepwear collections use our Opacitrique® fabric which is heavier-weight and created especially for maximum opacity.

    Absolutely love this nightgown. It is so comfortable and moves with you during those restless nights. It is soft and silky which feels good on my skin. I will be buying more.

  31. Ann (verified owner)

    The satintrique fabric is absolutely lovely to feel with a lovely drape over the body. It is light weight enough to wear on warm summer nights as well as silky enough to keep my body warm in cooler times. The lace is soft on the shoulders. Would love more pastel colors rather than the primary colors.

  32. Dariana Wheeland

    Great memories of my mom’s nightgown in the 1970’s. So I bought a Shadowline # 36737 gown of my own. I just love how soft and feminine and comfy it is!

  33. Ann

    Feminine and super comfortable. Love the silky feel. I will buy again!

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.
