How to Buy a Good Nightdress
A night gown, also known as a nightdress, nightgown or nightshirt is a loose fitting dress, often with a ruffled or cowl neckline and a bodice with a flowing, train style skirt. It typically is quite light in weight and has a very simple cut and pattern. A woman can choose to wear one or a combination of these types of outfits for a romantic evening on the town. However, it’s not just about the outfit itself. For a night on the town, the night dress should be appropriate for the occasion, and preferably one that will look good on you in photographs. Some ideas for how to buy a good night dress are to think about whether you are likely to be wearing a night garter for the night; the hem of a night dress may sometimes run too low for those people who are not wearing a garter belt.
The evening dress has become a very fashionable item and the best nightgowns are made with very luxurious materials. They are usually either a combination of silk or satin. Silk is considered to be one of the most flattering fabrics for the body, and is therefore used for many of the lingerie, sleepwear and nightwear that you can buy. Satin is usually used for evening dresses because it gives a very sensuous look and provides a very comfortable surface on which to lie down. The best evening dresses are usually long, with either a full skirt or an empire waistline, which gives the illusion of a slimmer body.
When shopping for evening dresses you need to think about what is most appropriate for your particular style. If you want to look sexy, but you have a short body type, a long, straight skirt is more appropriate than a mini-skirt with an empire waist. If you are a petite woman who wants to appear taller, then a night dress or miniskirt with a waist or empire waistline is the better choice, although you might want to consider trying it on in a lingerie shop before you purchase.
