|A babydoll is a short, loose-fitting nightgown that is often adorned with feminine accents such as lace, ribbons, bows, and ruffles. Sometimes babydoll sleepwear is made of sheer fabric such as tulle (mesh), lace, chiffon or silk. Babydolls often come with a matching thong or g-string since they are typically short enough to expose a woman’s underwear. Babydoll sleepwear has a coy, childish look and is typically worn by girly-girl women who enjoy looking ultra-feminine. |
For women's sleepwear the babydoll was made popular by the 1956 movie “Baby Doll” starring Carroll Baker as a sweet and sexy ingenue who wore provocatively short nightgowns. Due to its erotic, suggestive nature, babydoll sleepwear is popular with men and therefore a lingerie staple of women today. A completely different look, which is becoming popular, is the pajama jeans. HerRoom.com features a variety of babydoll sleepwear from many different manufacturers.
