Slenderella Ladies 46"/116cm Calf Length Summer Cotton Blue Flower Nightdress
These beautiful light blue nightdresses have a lovely floral design with flowers of pinks and lilacs complimented by light grey stalks and leaves.
They are made from a high-quality luxury 140gsm weight soft cotton jersey, a simple yet stylish nightdress it is 46" or 116cm in length so should be calf length for most.
The pattern is complimented by the classy solid colour piping and satin bow, with pintuck detailing to the yoke, this adds to the comfort of these nightdresses. They are equally good for lounging around the house as for sleeping with a nice wide round neck with a four button placket, making it easier to put on and take off.
Unlike some other nightdresses this has a seam free back, cheaper garments usually always have a seem running down the back and this can create irritation and even bed sores. There is also a full button up option in the same design and material.
But what is cotton jersey? Cotton jersey is a single-knit cotton fabric that is characterised by having one side smooth, and the other piled, it is created using one set of needles. Garments made from jersey are stretchy, soft, and release wrinkles easily. This means that there is no need to add any spandex, and therefore makes it an eco-friendly choice.
What is gsm? It stands for grams per square and represents the weight of a fabric, usually the higher the number, the thicker/denser and warmer the fabric is. As a rule the industry says that a lightweight fabric is between 30 and 150gsm, medium between 150 and 350gsm, and above this is, you guessed it, heavy weight.
Slenderella cotton garments are made from combed cotton which is far superior to the carded cotton that is usually used in cheaper garments, combed cotton will only shrink by 2% if treated properly and will not twist, whereas carded will twist, with shrinkage of about 15%.
Being cotton the garment will shrink a bit, and this should be taken into account, if it is washed too hot it will shrink a lot, cotton will only shrink a lot due to excessive heat.
