There were a lot of ways that the eras of the past were more glamorous than our modern world. People dressed up for dinner. The women set their hair and painted on their best faces for even days spent at home. Men wore pocket watches and cufflinks and all manner of dapper details that trump today’s Niké trainers and iWatches. And come bedtime, the women didn’t don their favourite novelty print pyjamas trousers and an oversized t-shirt, but instead nightie and robe sets, frills and lace and ribbons abound.
Don’t get me wrong. I am all about the novelty pj pants. If I’m not dolled up in one my favourite swing dresses I am most likely in yoga pants or a pair of polka dot bed trousers. I own many hoodies and a plethora of t-shirts, a large portion of which are Harry Potter themed. There’s nothing comfier for lounging in, there just isn’t. That being said, you don’t always want to look as comfortable as you feel. Sometimes you want to look glamorous and stylish and feminine even when you are comfortable. Which brings us back to those bed sets of times gone by.
I’ve been meaning to buy a nightie set for well over a year now but just never got around to it. I knew Glamour Bunny offered a small selection of bed sets and they shot to the top of my wishlist for my ‘If I ever get the chance to do a retro bedroom scene shoot, I’m getting one of these’ daydream. The dream photoshoot didn’t present itself, but the Glamour Bunny nightie sets went on sale, so, you know. What did you expect me to do?
