1940s Lingerie for your Valentine

Here are three ways to enjoy Valentine's Day 1940's style!

lady duff nightgown, 1948Be enticing in sheer chiffon and lace that covers but doesn't. This gown from 1948 is by Lady Duff.

tewi nightgown, 1949Go sweet and innocent with pretty ruffles and opaque nylon. This gown, from 1949, is by Tewi.

tommies satin pajamas, 1948My favorite - satin loungewear. Who wouldn't feel great by a romantic fire in luxurious rayon satin from the 1940s? Ladies, if you've never felt rayon satin, believe me, you've never felt satin. These pieces were made by Tommies, who offered the pajama top, short pants, long pants, bra top, and menswear style jacket as mix and match pieces. All from 1948.
