Vintage 1950s Black Nylon and Lace Nightie Gossard Nightgown Size Small
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a wonderful 50s era nylon nightie made in Canada by Gossard. Gossard was founded as a corset maker in 1901 in Chicago by W.H. Gossard, who founded the company after visiting Paris and seeing a performance by Sarah Bernhardt, who was attired in a corset. The nightie has lovely form, with a deep V neckline, pleated bodice and skirt that falls beautifully in drapes and black lace midriff. It is sleeveless and closes at the back with five buttons.
Age: 1950s, maybe early 60s
Makers Label: Gossard Made in Canada
Size small is indicated, but please note the following measurements for fit:
Bust: 33”-34”, taken under the arms
Length: 52 1/2”, measured flat
Condition: The nightie is in very good condition with no wear, tear, stains or odors - the label has a tiny stain and the pleating may not be as defined as it once was, but otherwise, this nightie looks like it saw little use and was well stored over the years.
This is a wonderful 50s nightie - very seductive with the sheer black nylon and lace....
