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).

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.

I was reluctant to order online because so many comments noted inferior fabric and sizing, but the pajamas I received are very comparable to those I’ve purchased in stores over the last 30 years. They washed well and hang to dry with few wrinkles. I intend to purchase another pair.

I have been buying these pajamas for years. My mom first introduced me to Shadowline products years ago. She used to buy me a set of the pajamas each Christmas. I loved receiving them and they always reminds me of my mom. (She passed away some 14 years ago.) One Christmas I had my daughter buy me a set. These pajamas always fit perfectly, wash up great, and wear very well. I love them and hope I can continue to purchase them for years.

The petals line is my favorite. I like the softness and weight of the fabric. I have gowns, robes and now short sleeve pajamas in the melon color. I hope my color won’t be discontinued. Thank you for letting me know about the sale. I will be back to purchase more.
I love shadowline pajamas but I can’t get petites , at my height the regular size drags the ground , so I haven’t ordered in a very long time.

I’ve always appreciated Shadowline’s quality. The styling, however, was a disappointment. The puffy shoulders look out of date and make me look old(er).

I absolutely love Shadowline pajamas. My late mother wore them and then I got my first pair. They are comfortable, non-clingy, wash and wear, all season and have a front pocket. I highly recommend them.

I ordered these pajamas in red for my Mother for Christmas. I hope she loves them as much as I do. She owns several Shadow line pajamas in lighter colors and I hope she thinks the red is as beautiful as I do. The order came extremely quick. I am very happy with the pajamas and the service. I just hope the pj’s fit.

I purchased these in dark colors to be modest yet cool when camping with my family. Though they are light weight the dark colors are not see-through, and the beautiful neckline is high enough to provide full coverage w/out looking frumpy or being too high. They seem to hold heat, however, especially because the sleeves are narrow and extend about half way down my upper arm. A butterfly sleeve like the long gown comes in would solve this problem because it is basically sleeveless at the underarm, where most of the heat is felt.
