Peignoir From Heaven

I’m a sucker for a vintage peignoir, and this 1950s set is a terrific example of why. Made by Rogers, it should make you feel like you’re floating along with Astaire.

I shouldn’t have to use words to describe this confection of nylon, but Google makes me. *wink*

Double layers of nylon tricot chiffon with panels of differing shades of blue create a frothy sea like look — or perhaps you prefer more of the sky metaphor?


Spaghetti straps attach to a shirred and V-cut Grecian Goddess bodice, which flows into a fitted waist with a classy peek-a-boo tease insert of even more sheer nylon, adorned with a floral motif of blue and silver threads. This insert matches the dainty collar on the peignoir — which closes with a pearl-button.


This spectacular vintage nightgown comes from Marsha’s Vintage, where Marsha says, “Enhance your life; wear vintage!” Amen, Marsha; Amen.
