This fabulous 1940s Du Benay nightgown is fashioned from pure, crisp, silky bias-cut rayon. It may look white in the photos, but it is actually the palest whisper blue, with gorgeous white lace trim and sheer crystal pleated chiffon all around the bust. The bustline is further decorated with delicate floral applique. So beautiful! The inner seams are pinked (I love this -- it is such a vintage character detail).

This romantic goddess-style piece would be perfect for a honeymoon or wedding night, or for just swanning around the house feeling like a movie star.

For details on size, condition and shipping, please see below; for more vintage and antique clothing, curiosities and more, please visit aquamarinedream.etsy.com! I will be listing more vintage lingerie in the coming days and weeks. Here are some more soft and delicate looks for you:



This garment is in wonderful vintage condition. It must have been very seldom worn. It was clean when I got it, but I have gently washed and pressed it so that it will be extra fresh when I send it to you.


The slip is tagged size 34, and would best fit a modern size small to medium; because it is bias cut, it is fairly forgiving and will fit a range of body types. Here are the actual measurements:

Bust: 16 inches unstretched & flat. It's definitely made to accommodate a larger bust than 32 inches, though; the gathered fabric along the underbust seam allow for extra room, and the bias cut makes the fabric more flexible. The dress form has a 32.75-inch bust measurement and the gown fit loosely (I pinned it back in some pictures to make it look better). The model's bust measurement is approximately 33 to 34 inches, and it also fit loosely on her.

Waist: 15 inches unstretched & flat

Hip: About 23.5 unstretched & flat - made to drape & flow loosely

Length: 45 inches from top center bust to bottom hem. 55 inches from top of strap to bottom hem.
