    Love this style gown!

    • Bev

      I already have several but would love to buy more of these gowns, especially the Navy, Melon, Turquoise, & Saffhire. Alas, you do not have this available in a 3X in any of your lovely colors. Also, years ago you offered a waltz length in some of the styles which was perfect. Any chance that length will return?

      LOVE,LOVE,LOVE this nightgown! My daughter loved hers I gave her, and my mother always loved these. In fact, when my mother passed away, this is the particular one I buried her in. I have several and they are the best!!

        The gowns are beautiful, comfortable and elegant. I have every color and will wear nothing else!

        • Ava Allen

          I’ve been wearing Shadowline for at least 25 years. I still have the first one I bought. The fabric is so durable and the most comfortable I’ve ever worn. The quality is above all others. There is simply no other that can compete.

          • Connie Heddleston

            My mother is in the nursing home and has every color of your gown. That is the only brand she will wear and they last so long. I do wish however that you would make one in yellow. She has one from long ago in yellow but it has been washed so many times it has begun to fade. She wears the short flutter sleeve gowns.

              I didn’t think I could find this nightgown ever again. I have looked everywhere. Then I found it here. I bought this 40 years ago when I was pregnant for my last daughter. It is still in great shape and I love it. Best ever and so comfy. I just bought 2 more and am in love with them. They are the exact thing. I was amazed. I would recommend to everyone. I am now 71 and still love this nightgown. Thank you for staying in business and for the fine quality you have kept ❤️

              • Jeanette (store manager)

                About 25 years ago I bought four Shadowline nightgowns at a hospital gift shop. I’m still wearing them, every night, night after night, and they’re all in perfect condition except for a shoulder seam on one of them which I’m going to mend.
                I just thought you might like to hear from a very satisfied customer.
                Thanks for making such an excellent product.

                  Only gowns I will wear! Last forever.

                  • Nancy L. Khoury (verified owner)

                    I now have 3 of these gowns. Two of them I have had for years and believe they will last forever. The last one I ordered was for a neat new color (red), These gowns are comfortable and flattering. I would recommend them to anyone who wants a good night’s sleep.

                    • Martha

                      I have five of these nightgowns. The first two I had for about 10 years, I love them, the first ones looks as good as new ones.

                      • Joanne

                        Love this gown. I have five. They are well made, have the first one for five years and it is as good as new.

                        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).

                        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.
