Revealing Nightgown!

Brooklyn born artist/illustrator Stanley Borack was a master of his craft whose vivid style created excitement on the covers of pulp fiction paperbacks. His work includes many exotic, adventurous and sexy themes and then there this housewife “nightgown” piece… who knows what that was for or if it relates at all to the other 2 images below on the domestic theme. We highly recommend browsing one of the online Stanley Borack catalogs.

Tosca style #6720 Peignoir Set

Apparently this was one of Tosca’s most popular styles in the 70s and 80s as it can often be found for sale second hand on eBay, usually in bridal white but they also show up in pink, blue and even mint green. We’re not able to find any information about the Tosca company or what happened to them so if you know anything about them please let us know.

With generous amounts of ruffled lace, puffy sleeves and clouds of chiffon this set is about as feminine as anything you could hope to find. You won’t find anything made quite like this today.

It came from the 40′s…

If you want to know what a neglige or peignoir set is then you’ll find a very straightforward explanation here: Vintage Forties nightgowns or “Whatever Happened to the Peignoir?”

The 40′s was definitely a great era for glamorous sleepwear!

Ahhhh the good old days, when you could just sit around all day long in a soft pink pegnoir set, smoking cigarettes, maybe a bit of sherry, then break out the firearms, good times….
