Vintage 60s Black Nylon Nightie Nightgown Saxon Lingerie
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a wonderful 1960s sheer black nylon nightie made in England under the Saxon brand label. This black nylon nightie has lovely form, with a wide V neckline, crisscross bodice and skirt that falls beautifully in drapes in a full length to the ankle. It is sleeveless and has no closures - it simply fits over the head. The crisscross part of the bodice is trimmed in lace and inset with pink satin ribbon. The bottom of the nightie has a flounce, bordered at the top by inset pink satin ribbon. The bodice is decorated at the front with a long pink satin bow. The nightie is cut to expose the back. This black nylon nightie is constructed with a layer of black nylon over a layer of flesh tone pink nylon. The band around the lower bust is elasticized, so has some “give”.
Makers Label: Saxon Lingerie Warning Keep Away From Fire Made in England. Saxon Lingerie was incorporated in 1952.
Sizing: Although this black nylon nightie should fit a medium size, please note the following measurements for fit:
Bust: measures 17” across, but because there is no back, probably would accommodate a range of bust sizes
Bust band/waist: 30” unstretched, stretches out to 37”, comfortable fit would be somewhere in between
Hips: 44”, meant to fall loosely in drapes
Length: 55”, measured flat from the top of the strap to the hemline
Condition: The nightie is in very good condition with no wear, tear, stains or odours - this black nylon nightie looks like it saw little use and was well stored.
This is a wonderful 60s black nylon nightie made by the highly desirable English brand of Saxon lingerie - seductive and sweet with the sheer black nylon and pink satin!
