Long nightgowns can vary in style from all-covering 'granny' gowns to elegant slender columns of silk. They may be ankle length, almost to the floor or tea-length, which falls mid-calf. Long nightgown styles are flattering to any figure. And even long slinky gowns provide a bit of modesty, assuring no surprise peek-a-boo moments.
For total comfort, try loose, flowy long nightgowns in nylon or cotton. Styled with either long or short sleeves, these gowns will be flattering and unfettered. For something different you can wear pajama jeans. For a sexy, elegant look try more form-fitting nightgowns with structured bodices and a fluid drape, in silk or synthetics. Fiber purists will love pima cotton interlock knits or modals. These fabrics lend themselves to clean, tailored lines.
