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”.

Age: 1960s

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!
