Cotton Nightdresses for Summer: Traditional Victorian or Contemporary Chic?

Pure cotton nightdresses are the perfect sleeping attire for summertime but there are many different styles available, so which one is the perfect style for you?

There are some companies out there, such as Powell Craft, which specialise in making good quality cotton nightdresses based on traditional Victorian designs. Most of these nightdresses are pure white cotton, although some have embellishments, such as lace and embroidery on them.

These Victorian-style cotton nightdresses come in a variety of lengths, from ankle-length to knee-length (although nothing shorter!). Some have long sleeves, some have short or cap sleeves, and some are sleeveless with straps instead.

They all provide comfort and coolness during hot summer nights, and let your skin breath to keep it healthy. Even if you choose an ankle-length, long-sleeved nightdress it will still keep you cool at night as the cotton fibres wick away moisture from the skin and let the air circulate around your body.

Powell Craft has recently produced some new designs veering slightly away from the traditional Victorian style, using brighter, bolder printed cotton. The patterned nightdresses are still made using the highest quality cotton, and therefore still offer all the properties of the white Victorian-style nightdresses but with a little contemporary chic added to them.

The shapes of the newer style nightdresses are very similar to the Victorian copies, as they are mostly ankle or shin length, but the patterns used are very vintage looking floral and rose prints.

Vintage or retro floral prints have really come back round into fashion so these kinds of designs are becoming more and more popular. It is therefore important to check that the material used is 100 per cent pure cotton, rather than a synthetic fibre, to get the benefits of the properties of this natural product.

You can go to bed looking super stylish and still feel comfortable and cool, in order to get a good night’s sleep and maintain the health of your skin. If your body is healthy your mind will stay healthy and you’ll sleep better at night!

It’s tricky business choosing the style of nightdress that best suits you but if you know you want a cotton nightie there is plenty of choice out there, you just have to find a brand that uses good quality cotton and try a few different designs.

When you find the length and style that suits you and that you find comfortable stick with it, but if you fancy a change now and again there are always new patterns being released. Shopping online for cotton nightdresses is the perfect place to keep up to date with the many designs on offer, and if you buy something you don’t like you can always send it back and exchange it for something else instead.

So whether you prefer traditional Victorian or contemporary chic just make sure you feel comfortable and cool in your cotton nightdress of choice for this summer.
