Lavinia gown

£ 274 GBP

A nod to the stars of the old Hollywood silver screen, our Lavinia gown enwraps the wearer in luxury and indulgence!  Slip into the soft radiance of 100% silk satin, and let the cares of the world melt away.  Perhaps a dry martini or a box of dark chocolates will complete your look...

This gown has become a staple for those seeking innerwear-as-outerwear options. The black silk is heavy enough to be worn out on the town, whether for a black tie or red carpet event! Its panels are bias-cut to gently skim over your curves, emphasizing all of your best features.

Our standard length is approximately floor length on a woman standing 5'6 tall (167.5cm), but the length will vary somewhat depending on how curvy your figure is. Contact us directly for custom lengths. Dry clean only. Made in England.

Measurement size charts

Sizing can vary a lot between different brands, so you may want to compare your actual body measurements to a size chart. Please follow these instructions for measuring:
Bust: Measure around the fullest part of your chest - not the same as your bra size.
Waist: Measure around the smallest part of your natural waist, 1-2" (2.5-5cm) above the navel.
High hip: Measure around your hip bones, where your low-rise waistband sits.
Low hip: Measure around the fullest part of your bottom, 7-9" (18-23cm) below the waist.

Additional notes:
  • Bra size: Our bralettes are best suited to a B or C cup size, although many customers who wear A or D cups are also happy with the fit. If you wear a larger cup size than a D, you may be prefer our custom size options - contact us for details.
  • Corset size: This is the actual measurement of the garment at the waist- your waist size should be several inches larger. For more detailed fit information about our corsets, see each corset's product page.
  • If you fall in between sizes, we recommend selecting the larger size (except for corsets and silk ruffle panties, which have adjustable ties), as lingerie and lounge wear should be fitted, but not overly constricting. You'll want a bit of ease for movement and sitting comfortably.
