The long white Victorian nightgown brings up memories of old-fashioned Christmases, A Christmas Carol, and simpler times. Embellished in lace and modest yet warm, the Victorian nightdress or nightgown is still being made today. You can choose a light cotton nightgown for summer evenings or a heavy cotton flannel for crisp winter nights. If you prefer pajamas, you can find many with the lace trim and details that nightdresses have. As a cover-up, look for a rich velvet or satin night robe for lounging at home. Men’s and children’s Victorian nightgowns are harder to find but I have included some here as well. The Victorian-style gown isn’t just for the pre-1900s, either — the style remained a vintage nightgown classic up to the 1980s.
