Does anyone know where i can find cotton nighties with a bit of style?

I'm after a strappy sort of Empire line in a pretty cotton fabric. I'm happy to spend a bit - though not £120 which is the price of one I found yesterday.

If anyone knows of one I would be interested too kitty
I like to sleep only wearing Chanel No5 😄but need something cotton to put on when I get up in the morning to float about in.I have some cotton pjs but would like nighties that are cotton and not pink or blue with flowers on ( the usual colour and pattern that you see, and have seen, for the past fifty years or more.)

Always get mine from M&S. Usually, take them on holidays to hot places. Otherwise it’s Jimjams for me.

Just been looking on the John Lewis web site and they have a great variety of nighties to suit all tastes and at reasonable prices. Worth a look.

I have had some nice nightwear from David Neiper, over the years. It always washes well and lasts well.
I think their cotton nightdresses may be in a price bracket near that which you quote, kitty. I have had their jersey ones, which are lightweight, comfortable and a bit cheaper.

Yes I was going to say David Neiper.

David Neiper lovely quality but a bit expensive. Have a look at all cotton nighties on the Slenderella website. Some are floral but in different colours from pink and blue, whilst there are other patterns and lots of different designs. They are a family firm and also do Brettles which used to be if not still a well known brand.

I bought a couple of white cotton empire line nighties from Amazon, a company called Cotton Lane. £39.99 arrived four days later. Exactly what I was looking for.

David Neiper clothes and nightwear look good quality but very old fashioned to me.
I wouldn’t want white cotton either ( one coffee stain!)😱

lemon honestly they arent old fashion. They fit beautifully. I always buy their dressing gowns, both winter and summer weight and they last for ever.

I’m the messiest eater as well but they are all as good as new.

Mind you saying that, I do think their everyday wear a bit old fashioned😄
