    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.

      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!

        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!

          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:

          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.
