Rated 5 out of 5Â by cat dancer I bought a second one
I ordered the second one because this is the only 90 degree summer night gown I was wearing, so why not have two. I always wanted to buy an Eileen West but the pastels were never for me. Then my friend who owns several EW told me to look at this one. The print has enough color to look vibrant on me. I was concerned about the fit. The models are very thin and I was afraid the pleating would look very different on a plus size. VCS customer service measured the gowns for me and I ordered the XL and the 2X. The pleats fall gently and do not balloon out. The sizing is generous. The XL was the best fit. I am 44B and 50â hips if that helps someone on the sizing. The fabric will become very silky but retain some clothesline snap. Reminds me of pre air conditioning summer cotton pajamas from the 1950âs. Yes it was rather stiff in the beginning. It had a lot of sizing on it and I had to soak it out with baking soda and vinegar. What really worked was that I was on vacation and had to hand wash and wring this out so that it would dry in an hour on a clothes line. The hand wringing, I think was the final softening trick. The cotton lace trim and shoulder straps smooth out really well while still damp and no ironing is needed. I would love to have a matching long sleeve long robe for this.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Clo Eileen West Sleepwear is a dream come true!
I have purchased Eileen West nightgowns from the Vermont Country Store for awhile now, and have never been disappointed. The quality is impecable, and they are so comfortable and pretty. Care is also easy, just wash in cold water and dry gentle cycle.

I had my eye on this nightgown for awhile.....I love Eileen West gowns......they are comfortable and very feminine. This gown runs big. I am petite 5'1'' and under 110lbs. I ordered the small. It is very roomy. You may have to put it in the dryer. This gown is different from my other size small I bought in a high end department store. The fabric is light,cool and very pretty. I own 4 of her nightgowns and love them. Wash them on delicate....cool water and hang dry......they are the best!!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Gigi ME Sweet dreams in lavender field
I've been wearing Elaine West nightgowns for about 10 years, and I'm a fan of their feminine designs, quality materials and quality construction. Recently I was attracted to the Lavender Field nightgown, but I wondered about two reviewers' criticisms of the "rough fabric" used in this gown as compared to fabric in other West gowns. To judge for myself, I ordered both this fine-print Lavender Field gown AND her open-patterned Lavender Floral gown. My conclusions: The Lavender Field fabric is indeed a slightly different weave than that of other West gowns, and BEFORE laundering it feels a bit stiff; second, the cut of the gown I received is slimmer than that of the Lavender Floral and other West gowns. After two washings and several wearings, however, I can report that the fabric softens beautifully and is nicely lightweight without being sheer. Re the fit, although it is slightly slimmer cut, the size Medium--my standard size--still fits my 5'7", 160-lb frame just fine. And, I love this fine-scaled lavender print, so this gown wins my appreciation.

SO glad you store has started carrying PLUS size sleep wear. I've wanted this for a long time but only Misses sizes were offered. Love the lightweight Lawn fabric. Hard to find elsewhere. The quality of the construction & fabric are hard to find these days. Love the Old Time feminine look & details.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by walkingquail the good stuff
I finally treated myself to a good nightgown. I kept buying ones on sale or at outlet stores that were just ok or not at all what I wanted. I have had these beautiful nightgowns before many years ago but I kept telling myself they were too expensive to buy now.
But think of all the money I wasted not getting the breezy cotton and generous comfortable cut that these gowns provide!
They are worth every dollar and I will sleep through the hot months much better now.
