White Cotton Nightgown
The Romantic Mystique of a White Cotton Nightgown
If you are looking for a nightgown that is both super-feminine and romantic, a white cotton gown has a feminine mystique that is hard to beat. Many men find the seduction of white cotton and lace hard to resist.
While the white nightgown is wildly romantic, it is also cool, comfortable and practical. Cotton is a breathable fabric, keeping you cool on hot, summer nights. It is easy to launder whether by machine or by hand, and dries quickly.
White cotton is basic and pure, old fashioned and simply beautiful. A nightgown made from this fabric is sexy in an understated way. It would be hard to find any sleepwear more romantic than a white cotton nightie!
Find the sleepwear of your dreams! Whether you are looking for the perfect, basic cotton gown or a Victorian nightgown covered with lace, I have gathered my favorite ones on this page to make your shopping easy!

For many centuries, women slept in white cotton chemise gowns, often embellished with lace, embroidery, smocking and openwork. Young women would sew these garments carefully by hand to prepare them for their bridal trousseau.
