After I was interviewed for Autostaddle’s Straddler on the Street, I got a fantastic comment from Launa asking for a post on long gowns for tall people who want something that will actually cover them– happily I’ve been seeing a ton of gorgeous long nightgowns recently, so this is a perfect time to talk about them! I’ve selected a range of gowns that I wish I had the inches and the panache to pull off!
This delicate Fleur of England gown is so beautiful. One thing I love about the color is that it feels like it could be fitting for someone of any age and the sheer lace top is surprisingly sexy.
This Rosamosario chemise is incredibly grand and majestic and gorgeous. Black and gold might be dramatic, but if you want to sweep into your bedroom with elegance and authority, this is clearly what you should be wearing.
This Donna Karan chemise is actually one of my favorites on this list. It’s simple, but lovely shape that’s more clearly than modern than some of the other picks. The fabric also looks metallic, which is such a cool effect.
I love this baby blue Soma gown! It’s so sweet, while still sophisticated. Definitely a summer nightgown to wear with a sheer robe!
I’ve been crushing on La Lilouche’s maxi gowns for a while and this red wine color is fantastic. This might not be for the person who wants full coverage, but it’s beautiful.
Julianna Rae’s gown is one of the most traditional here, but that definitely gives some vintage, Cat on The Hot Tin Roof sex appeal.
This Marika Vera gown is so modern and sharp that I wish I could wear it to a fancy dress occasion. And that dark gunmetal gray color is so unusual for lingerie, I really love it.
The photo of this Shell Belle gown makes me fall in love with it every time I see it. Doesn’t wear a sheer gown, sailing and drinking champagne sound just about perfect? Definitely a top bridal pick.
No matter what I said about not being able to wear long gowns because of my shortness, I think I’ve talked myself into it! There are way too many pretties for me to be left out.
What do you think? Do you like long gowns? Do you want to start wearing them?
