Sexy, Teasing, Pleasing, Babydoll Nighties

Babydoll nighties date back to the late 1950s and quickly became synonymous with the swinging ’60s ~ and the stuff of male fantasies, a la saucy all-female slumber parties and, yes, those pillow-fights too.

Joey Heatherton babydoll toyBabydolls (or baby dolls) are a variety of short, rather flared nightgowns, which barely cover a lady’s bottom. Traditionally, they were made of sheer chiffon and even clouds of nylon, and ruffled high-waist, full-coverage panties, were worn beneath them. This plays on rather innocent notions and teases.

Today, babydoll nighties are usually less voluminous. Instead, they are more constructed, often with built-in bra cups above an empire waist; quite often slit from that high-waistline, exposing the belly button and more. Even so, these contemporary babydoll nightgowns are more teasing pinup than slutty girl ~ more sultry than slutty.

While their partners are all about the playful peeking of these nighties, women love them for their comfort ~ not only the physical comforts (and sensual delights of the silky nylon!), but the emotional comforts as well. Because these short nighties are full of tease rather than sleaze, even women with body image issues find delighties in these nighties. That makes babydoll nighties one of the easiest lingerie gifts to give ~ and for the recipient to wear. (And you want your lingerie gift to be worn, right? Right.)

Secrets In Lace has a number of lovely babydoll nighties which completely capture the peek-a-boo play of the vintage styles.

Their Delicate Babydoll is made of very sheer chiffon nylon, with lots of ruffles at the hem. It comes with a matching panty. Available in pink, as shown here, and black.

The Hollywood Pleated Babydoll is full of classic details. This little black beauty can be used as a peignoir over other short nightgowns, or worn as a sheer top. It comes in plus sizes too. (It also has a matching pleated full-coverage sheer panty; also in plus sizes.)
