Here's to the Victorian nightdress. Equal parts breathable and ethereal, I first discovered the joys of this gem when I was pregnant with my second child and did not feel like stretching on my too-tight jammies or kicking off my stretch pants in a sweaty fervor in the dead of night.
I was also given a lovely white robe to wear in the hospital and I wanted to have something equally as lovely to wear with it.
And so began my love affair with the most beautiful of night garments. Romantic, whimsical, comfortable and practicial; it packs well, it looks good, and it's elegantly sexy.
What is not to love?
