Babydoll Nightie Renaissance ~ Shadowline®

Shadowline Silhouette Lace Vintage Babydoll Nightie featured on Lingerie BriefsSylvia Pedlar 1940s BabydollLingerie designer Sylvia Pedlar created the first shorty nightgown in 1942, known as the Babydoll. It was a practical response to the fabric shortage during World War II. The pretty and feminine sleepwear style reflected the resourcefulness of women during a time of scarcity. The Babydoll gained further popularity after the release of the 1956 hit movie “Baby Doll,” which catapulted it into the realm of pop culture. Since then, it has become synonymous with romantic and alluring lingerie.

The Babydoll has recently undergone a contemporary renaissance! Shadowline recognized the modern appeal of this vintage nightgown and has introduced the fresh, elegant and sexy, Silhouette Lace Vintage Babydoll Nightie, adding a modern twist to this classic garment.

    I bought a set for my wife. She really likes it but wishes that they would give an option for the panties. A classic full-cut brief would be a better “fit” with a vintage babydoll PJ set.

      I agree – they should offer the full cut brief with lace insert as a matching panty. There’s no way my wife would ever wear the cheeky panty so I’d have to throw it away but thankfully they do sell the babydoll nightie and matching full cut brief panties separately so I created her a set out of them. She absolutely loves this babydoll with her favorite panties, the lace insert brief. Looks great on her!
