    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.

    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.

    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 ❤️

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.
