New nighties adopt soft, delicate fabrics, trims

Babydolls, chemises and nightgowns come in sheer or glossy textiles, and are adorned with lace or ruffles.


  • Key products: Chemises and babydolls account for 40 and 35 percent of output in the line. Nightgowns compose the rest.
  • Feminine elements: Most designs adopt diaphanous or lustrous textiles such as chiffon and satin. Lace is a popular decoration, often placed on the neckline or the hem. Releases can also be made entirely of or have portions that come in the material. Some styles feature a lace-up back, or ruffled straps or edges.
  • Colors & patterns: White, black, beige, pink and purple are the mainstream hues for woven models. Pastel shades of blue, pink and green are more prevalent in knitted nightwear. As for motifs, florals and polka dots continue to be dominant.
  • Stable prices, flat sales: Manufacturers intend to keep quotes unchanged in the next six months. Slow demand, however, may prompt some suppliers to bring prices down slightly to encourage orders. Overseas revenue is projected to be consistent with the previous year. Businesses will emphasize shipments to the US and Europe.
