By: Virginia Wallace
Size: 36 but go by the measurements for a good fit
Bust: all the way around 63 but you do not want to stretch to the max or it will not drape correctly
Bust: 34 - 39 stretched tight
Waist: 29 - 34stretched tight
Care: Washable - I would hand wash drip dry as with all vintage sets
Condition: Very good - a triple pinhead hole in the nylon the gown & a double one in the peignoir but I never would have seen them if I hadn‘t held it up to the light & closely examined it - some light picks in the set which get lost in the voluminous folds

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. Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use/wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing/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, 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.
