  • This dress came out first as a nightwear during 1940’s from the American lingerie designer, Sylvia Pedlar. And because of the fabric shortage during WWII, nightgowns were cut very very short calling it babydoll dress. See, even a fabric shortage couldn’t stop women from wearing lingerie!

2.) Feminist dress

  • This came out as daywear in the ’60s as a form of feminine liberation from the norm of narrow waists corsetry, and social conservatism as by couturiers, Balenciaga, and Givenchy.
