The lace has raised stitching on it as Chantilly lace does & it is exquisite. There is elastic at the waist for a good fit with a hook & eye for closure. Double nylon puffy sleeves banded with satin. The back is gorgeous with wide 4-½” satin strips which lay over the satin back with sheer nylon in between the strips. One layer sheer skirt with a double faced Champagne Bubbles satin ribbon & loops at the waist.

Just a lovely vintage peignoir & nightgown set by Victoria’s Secret lavished with Chantilly lace & satin in Champagne Bubbles perfect for a bride or a special evening.
By Victoria‘s Secret with the old label
Size: No tag but probably a medium/large. I tried on the peignoir & it fit me perfectly & I wear a size 10 or medium / large in a set.
Bust: 40-½ all the way around & if left open probably larger
Waist: 25 - 46 stretched tight
Size: no tag so go by the measurements
Bust: 39 - 45 stretched tight
Waist: 33 - 46 stretched tight
Length: Former owner shortened the gown by knotting the straps in back as shown in the photo as it was too long for her. Instead of doing that, I would cut the end of the strap in back & reattach to the inside of the back - a 5-minute project & it would look nicer. With it knotted in back 53-½ & somewhat long if the knots are undone.
Fabric: No tag but nylon & probably silky poly
Care: I would hand wash drip dry as with any fine item
Condition: Very good
We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
