    I love the floral detailing on these these sweet gowns in the Petals line. The straps are wide and comfortable, and the fabric is as light as a feather. Perfect for summer nights.

    I am a hot person. Hot all the time, a real Tshirt in the snow kind of gal, and I truly appreciative how good I slept in this gown! I wear cotton most of the time but wanted to give this propriety material a try. The weave is nice and tight, which means cat hair slides right off! I will be getting more sleepwear made of this fabric.

    I bought my first one many years ago. I could not sleep with anything else after! Now I have 7! I want more but would love to see one in some shade of yellow. My favorite part of this gown is the neckline that is off the shoulder edge. So comfortable I wear nothing else. Do you have this style in a shorty pajama? And will you add yellow and maybe navy blue?

    • Reply from Shadowline Lingerie (store manager)

      Hi Jeanette, we’re glad to hear you’re such a fan of this nightgown! Navy is already available and we’ve just launched it in new colors Raspberry and Lilac which you might like to check out (no current plans to launch a yellow version but perhaps in future.) There’s no shorty pajama in our Petals collection at present but we’ll pass your feedback onto our design team. In the meantime, you might like the Twilight collection shorty pajama set which is made from the same Opacitrique® fabric.

    I have worn the sleeveless, short sleeve and long gown with short sleeve for years. It is hard to find the exact quality in the department store. I would be ordering this product right now if they had the one color I want, Teal. Please get Teal in.

  35. John (verified owner)

    I purchase these for my beautiful wife! We love the style and the many color options. The gowns fit very well and aren’t binding, they are very comfortable. Great price and as they are well made they last for years and years. Makes the perfect gift for your loved one.

    I love these nightgowns & matching robes, I wear them all the time

  38. Sue

    These are fashionable and no-nonsense. The fit is fantastic. They launder nicely. I have 3 sleeveless, a flutter sleeve and a robe. I purchased them in 2011 and they still look new! I wash them in cold water and hang them up to dry. Well worth every penny!

  39. dianawestberg (verified owner)

    The classic. Oversized, comfortable, smooth & high quality nylon. I purchased the turquoise, melon, and the robe to match and I’m happy with my finds. (Old fashioned nighties like these are really impossible to find in local stores!)

    I’d definitely recommend these for anyone who likes to sleep in not skin tight, cool & breezy nightwear that isn’t revealing or tacky. Just great everyday sleepwear that is pretty and functional. 🙂 Hope they still last for years, will report back!

    Love this gown so much I have 3 of them. They last for years and years

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.
