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, girlish look and is typically worn by women who enjoy looking sexy and 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, it's popular with men and therefore a lingerie staple for some women today.
