Women's Pretty In Paisleys Nightgown
Lightweight, cool, comfortable
I love this nightgown so much! I get very warm at night and the fabric is SUPER cooling and comfortable - smooth, 100% cotton and very lightweight without feeling fragile.
The colors are bright and beautiful, maybe just the SLIGHTEST bit less bright than the picture appears but still lovely.
The arm holes are just right for me (some mentioned they were too big), and I feel it is plenty modest to wear around the house like a housedress (my teens thought it WAS a dress) without feeling like I'm in a frumpy grandma gown...
I also love the pockets, I can tuck my cell phone in while doing housework.
It probably runs slightly on the large side. I normally wear a Women's Plus Size 4X or size 30, but after reading reviews, I took a chance and ordered this in the 3X and it fits absolutely perfect, but still roomy enough to sleep and move comfortably in!
I haven't washed it, but common sense tells me lightweight fabric and bright colors like this will last longer if I hand wash and line dry. This is how I handle all my lightweight cotton gowns and I have never had a problem with shrinkage, fading or wearing out.
The fabric DOES wrinkle, in an acceptable "crinkle-y" sort of way, this doesn't bother me because it IS a nightgown and I've never worried about having wrinkle-free sleepwear.
I really wish this gown came in other colors, I'd order all of them!

I bought this after reading reviews of this nightgown and others. Originally I had planned to buy a different one, but many people were raving about this one.
They were right! This is very comfortable, has a reasonable fit for plus size, and doesn't get knotted up overnight.
I wish it came in alternate colors, since i would be glad to buy another one.

Great lightweight dress
Using this dress for in the evening around the house. Living in the midwest the heat and humidity are high and yet the dress is very lightweight and cool. Nice product.

Comfort in Spades
Having reached a certain age, I have issues sleeping well through the night. I swear, on my life, that this nightgown has magic powers. I slept, through the night on its first wearing. It is light as a feather and nowhere near as scratchy as I anticipated for a woven nightgown. I wish I had an entire wardrobe of these. Oh, and the material is gorgeous, colors are vibrant and the pattern very whimsical. Buy one. Now!!

I can't say enough about this beauty!
I am a nightgown fanatic! Live in them night & day, inside & outside the house. I clean in them, hang the wash out in them, garden in them, just whatever! I like being cool & comfortable & the clothes these days do not provide that comfort. I perspire profusely from the medications I'm on, so it is important that my nightgowns serve the purpose of keeping me cool & comfortable.
This beauty here I can't say enough about. As soon as I opened the package I immediately fell in love with it. The one I received, the colors are much brighter than the picture but I'm sure that each one is probably different. It is soft as butter & light as a feather. It will work well when the heat & humidity creep in here very soon. I love this one so much I will be ordering another one exactly like it.
I am 5"7, 225 lbs., big busted, very curvy. I purchased the 2X but mind you, I like my gowns a tad big. The length hits right about mid calf on me. I could have very easily worn the 1X but with this being 100% cotton, I wouldn't even take the chance of it getting in the dryer accidentally & then not being able to wear it ever again. Although I wash all of my gowns in cold water or by hand & if they go into the dryer, it is for a very short, period of time. But mistakes do happen. That being said, the only part that is really noticeable of being a bit too big are the underarms, but for me that is not a problem. Make sure to go by the size chart with each gown. I just can't say enough about this gown. I just love it!

The 100% cotton fabric is so soft and I adore the colorful paisley design.
I now have two of these gowns as I wear cotton gowns all year long. May have to order another one before too long.

This gown is very cool
This nightgown is very cool and pretty. I received this and the islander on the same day, also 2 henley short night shirts. This one is my immediate favorite. I would have given it 5 stars but, my daughter thought it was too sheer to walk outside in. Still, I think I could sit outside with a cup of tea, and read my Vermont Country Catalog.
