Looking for something sweet yet sexy to wear in the bedroom? Look no further than the babydoll. A classic piece of nightwear, the babydoll is the perfect thing to slip into for a romantic evening in the boudoir.
What is a babydoll?
Babydolls are short, loose fitting negligees, intended as nightwear for women. They usually have some form of cups, like a bralette and then a flowing skirt that falls between the belly button and upper thigh.
Babydolls come in various different styles and colours and are often made of sheer fabrics like nylon, chiffon and silk.
History of the babydoll
American lingerie designer Sylvia Pedlar designed the first babydoll. She created these super-short nightgowns in response to fabric shortages during World War II. Although they became known as babydolls, this wasn’t a name that Pedlar liked to use herself.
The name actually came from the 1956 movie Baby Doll, with the nightwear being worn by the protagonist played by Carroll Baker. The film sparked a trend for this sexy nightwear throughout the fifties and sixties and it’s been popular ever since.
Today babydolls are often sold in a set with briefs or thongs, as a typical babydoll is short enough to reveal what’s underneath.
