This tailored nightshirt buttons all the way down the front and features matte crepe cuffs and notch collar. It is long enough to be worn alone, but has a curved hemline for a feminine, flirty finish. Back yoke for fit and ease of movement across the shoulder.
What quality silk does Christine use? The Garbo Nightshirt is made from luxurious, 19mm silk.
Why isn’t thread count used when talking about silk? Silk is an incredibly fine fibre, and thread counts would be extremely high, regardless of the quality of the silk. So for example, a low-quality silk may have a similarly high thread count to a high-quality silk. For this reason, silk uses an alternative system to measure quality, called momme (mm) weight.
What is momme weight? Momme weight describes the weight of 100 yards of silk, 45 inches wide, in pounds. So, if a fabric is listed with a momme weight of 16mm, it means that 100 yards of the fabric weighs 16 pounds. The best silk lingerie is 19mm or 19 pounds in weight per 100 yards.
