Sheer Babydoll Short Nightdress Set
Suzette Sheer Babydoll
Our Suzette lace Babydoll features soft stretch tulle which is lovingly trimmed with an exquisite pink embroidered lace sourced from Switzerland.
Peony pink ribbon edges the iconic 1950s shorty hemline and matched to the centre satin bow to make a stunning nightwear piece.
It has adjustable straps that come through the magnolia embroidered lace sheer cups, giving gentle support to the bust area.
We have gone modern with classic thong with matching lace panel to complete the set.
The Suzette Babydoll nightie chemise is the very definition of flirty bedroom temptation, oozing sex appeal, it is designed to be both visually stunning and easy to wear.
The stretch tulle allows movement and is deliciously soft to the touch.
Our limited-edition embroidered lace by Forster Rohner of Switzerland means that only 50 pieces will ever be manufactured in our factory so every Babydoll is handmade to order by our skilled team. Once this is gone – it’s gone!
History and Inspiration
Babydolls became fashionable during the late 50s when fabric was in short supply.
Designers had to be imaginative and creative to produce garments which were both affordable and desirable, so the earlier World War 2 short negligee were made by an American lingerie designer Sylvia Pedlar (she disliked the term Babydolls as a garment name)
The word Babydoll was brought to the attention of 50’s America by the film Babydoll starring Carroll Baker. The film was controversial with its setting in the southern states of the USA and its overtly sexual theme.
After that the Babydoll fashion trend continues with pyjama style pants were elasticated bloomer style and took various forms over the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s.
