The sexy feeling of freshly laundered lingerie for men on smooth skin has always been a source of satisfaction when slipping into clean bed sheets for women, and today’s men want that feeling also. Nightgowns of all kinds are made with many different ranges of materials including cotton (generally, this is reserved for plain and straightforward pajamas or night shirts), polyester (which can be woven in such a way as to mimic the sexy feel of silk), satin, or silk itself. Chiffon, tulle and many other fabrics are also used to detail, accentuate and further decorate each piece, adding beautiful little personal touches that individualise and further add to the individual effeminate beauty of the nightgown.women’s lingerie for men – blue nightgownwomens lingerie for men - blue night gown

So, what kinds of nightgowns and other lingerie for men are there? Where exactly does one begin? The answer may not be as cut and dry as one would think; there are plenty of types to choose from. This list will cover the most popular kinds and what to do with them.

When it comes to nightgowns and other lingerie for men, mainly you have two subtypes: sexy and sensual versus flowing and effeminate. Both subtypes and gowns falling into each will be looked at in this entry.

 

First, let’s take a look at the sexier end of the spectrum. Here you will find such beauties as teddies and negligee, baby dolls, and chemises.

  • Teddies and negligee: The furthest end of the sexy sleepwear spectrum is beholden to these elegant, hot numbers which can be made of anything from woven cotton to, most commonly, transparent and dreamlike fabrics such as tulle and chiffon. These beauties tow the line between nightgown and lingerie and tend to be worn for ultimate sex appeal and sensuality. They often have spaghetti straps, sometimes adjustable, to accommodate differing chest widths, bust sizes and shoulder spans on a per-individual basis. The most ideal of these types to look into purchasing would be those with adjustable straps similar to those of bra straps, which can be pushed and pulled into the perfect length for the wearer to feel their sexiest in. These are quite short, only about as long as the hips or just past the crotch of the wearer.pink nightie – women’s lingerie for menpink nightie - womens lingerie for men
  • Baby dolls: Offering a bit more coverage than teddies or negligee, but still on the “sexy” side of the nightgown spectrum, are baby doll gowns. These are also short, only about crotch length on the wearer, and similarly to teddies are sleeveless as well. Baby dolls can be sheer or solid, but they are almost always soft and delicate even if they offer more in the “coverage” department”. These are perfect for the wearer who wants to feel sexy and confident to bed while also being a tad more modest in the sense that, generally, the chest and bust of the baby doll gown is a solid color or print and the flowing material over the abdomen is sheer, as opposed to the teddy/negligee, of which a lot of them are sheer all over. Ever soft, flowy, and ultimately femme, these are adorable additions to one’s collection of sleepwear that is both practical and sexy at the same time.
  • Chemises: Ask a modern woman what comes to mind when she thinks “nightgown” and chances are she’ll describe the chemise. Popularized in the 1920s, a chemise is a loose-fitting, slightly longer than both teddies and baby dolls type of nightgown that are most commonly made of silk, satin or polyester. Many come with beautiful lace trim and are the ultimate choice for the wearer who isn’t out to impress anyone but themselves. Ultra comfortable and almost always ultra soft, these are the most popular choice of nightgown and sleepwear among the majority of women. Almost any lady one knows is likely to have at least one in her closet somewhere! Unfortunately, the straps of the chemise-type nightgown are not usually adjustable and care must be taken to make sure that the piece will fit both the chest and hips, as they tend to be a one-size, straight line cut that fits very loosely, if not totally independent of, the hips while hugging the details of the chest. Ensure that the chemise you purchase is large enough on top, because it can become quite uncomfortable if the gown is extremely tight around the chest and under the arms. One must never sacrifice comfort when it comes to nightwear- the ultimate goal is to sleep both soundly and while feeling lovely, and it’s impossible to do these things if one isn’t comfortable first and foremost! There will be more details on this in a later paragraph.

As you can see, the world of nightgowns is more detailed and intricate than most give it credit for. The majority of women looking for sexiness and sensuality in their nightgowns will choose a type from the points above, however, what about the wearer who is just looking for comfort and the feel of soft fabric on their skin while they drift off to sleep? What about the wearer who wants to feel feminine without flaunting their sexuality outright? This is where gowns like banyans and peignoirs come into play.

  • Banyans: Would you believe that there’s a type of nightgown out there fashioned after the Japanese kimono? The banyan is it! Traditionally worn by men in Japanese cultures of the 18th century, they have been commandeered by women looking for something that is loose-fitting, flowy and comfortable. These pieces do not necessarily have the sex appeal as others on this list do, however, for the wearer looking for softness on the skin and loose, airy comfort, these are an excellent choice. They are popular in both summer and winter, as they can be made of thicker fabrics for warmth or thinner fabrics for airy, lightweight comfort.
  • Peignoirs: The peignoir is the ultimate in class and sophisticated feminine power. It is a long, usually floor-length, flowing chiffon gown and robe set that brings up memories of vintage Hollywood sirens such as Brigitte Bardot and Marilyn Monroe. For the wearer looking for ultra-feminine and ultra-glamourous without outright “sexiness”, this is the absolute perfect choice for many reasons. They can be both long and short-sleeved, though more commonly they are long-sleeved. These will surely bring back the old-school beauty in every wearer- the long dormant glamour that lives within us all.

Okay, so, now that we have an overview of the different types of nightgowns one will commonly come across while shopping, what about wear? How do each of these fit on the body, and are there techniques for wearing them? There certainly are!

Nightgowns are delicate and small, soft and fragile. Too much force in putting them on can tear them easily, and one must be careful to avoid damaging them as they can be pricey (plus, nothing is worse than popping the seam on your favorite nightgown and then either trying to fix it yourself or find an identical replacement).

It is highly recommended that for womens lingerie for men such as baby dolls, teddies and chemises that one steps into it rather than pulls it over their head; this is so that they have more control as they pull the delicate fabric up over their stomach and chest. It is easier to see and feel how the fabric fits and stretches along the contours of the chest if one is pulling it up as opposed to yanking it down. It is also much easier to be gentle, as the straps can break easily and lace can tear.

Each wearer’s body is different, however, for those with wider shoulders and chests, finding a nightgown that fits beautifully may be a challenge. However, it’s a challenge well worth tackling, as that perfect fit is such a fabulous feeling. It is highly advised that, as mentioned above, one finds a gown that fits their chest first and foremost. Pulling a gown over one’s chest presents the highest risk of breaking and tearing. As a rule of thumb, if it’s too tight underneath the arms, it’s going to be too tight in general and the risk of popping a seam is much, much higher.

The straps are another source of concern for the wearer. Many lingerie for men come with spaghetti straps that are very, very easy to snap and break from the gown itself. Every woman can probably tell you a story about when she broke a spaghetti strap. It’s frustrating, and very difficult to fix on one’s own. It is highly recommended that one invest in nightgowns with adjustable straps. These can be very easily adjusted and customized for the wearer. Simply pinch the adjuster between two fingers and pull it downward toward the front of the gown to expand the straps to a longer length. To shorten them, simply do the opposite- pinch the adjuster between two fingers and gently pull back toward the back of the gown. Keep playing with it until you find that perfect fit for you.

When putting on a gown such as a peignoir, perhaps the most important thing to remember with lingerie for men is that these are usually long sleeved and it is important for wearers with wider shoulders to make sure that the measurement between shoulder seams across the back are the correct size before trying to put one on. As annoying as popping a strap is, tearing or accidentally pulling apart the back of a delicate and favored peignoir is probably worse! To avoid this annoyance, one must ensure that their measurements and that of the garment are in sync, much like they would with a coat or blazer.

Once one gets the hang of their own individual fit, it should be quite easy to shop for and purchase the perfect pieces once they have a good idea of exactly how to shop for their bodies.

Nightgowns are absolutely perfect for the wearer who wants to feel feminine, pretty and cozy all at the same time while not sacrificing sleepability. The perfect lingerie for men nightgowns should be both sexy and sleepable at all times, and no one should sacrifice comfort at any time. Once the sizing and techniques are mastered, which should come rather easily, it can be assured that wearing these beautiful little numbers are an excellent way to tap into one’s feminine beauty and grace. One’s body type is not important at all- it’s all about how these gowns help one tap into their inner femme fatale, the siren who lives within each and every one of us. Have confidence, and she will emerge for sure!
