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.

When I received the fuchsia colored sleepshirt, I believed it was like the many others I have purchased from ShadowLine. However, after trying it on, I found the back of the gown was much longer than the front and that the front of the gown seemed to be a different width than the back. I almost feel like it was two different sizes sown together and I ended up with an oddball. This did not match my past experience with ShadowLine. This gown will probably be seldom used.

Great nightgown! I love the navy color and the lace is gorgeous. Love the look and feel of it and length for walking around. Wish it was a touch longer while sleeping, but I’m on the taller side.

Pastel blue, not dark blue. Pastel green. Satin. Can not do any better for a luxurious feel in chilly months

Love it. Haven’t been able to find these silky nightshirts forever. This is all I wear to sleep. The lace doesn’t scratch either! Yay! Thanks!

Silky, elegant and the perfect lightweight summer sleepshirt. The size fits well with room to sleep comfortably. I chose light grey which looks stunning against the ecru lace trim. Very happy with my purchase.

Love these. Would love to see more colors. This is the only style of gown that I wear so was so happy to find these.
Awesome sleep shirt. Fits perfectly. Doesn’t ride up at night. I would request some lace around the hem, that, in my opinion would make it even nicer.

I gave this to my 42 year old daughter for Mother’s Day in light green with the soft contrasting lace around the neckline. She loves it. The satin fabric has beautiful drape and the knee length suits her to a tee. Thank you for another lovely gown perfect for women of all ages.
