My 5 Favorite Sheer Long Gowns

I.D. Sarrieri

I.D. Sarrieri

Lately, I've been a bit obsessed with sheer gowns. I mean, generally speaking, I'm fairly obsessed with sheer things all the time, so that part is nothing new. But I've never before craved the sweeping drama of a long, flowing sheer nightgown the way I do right now. I think Beyonce's recent 'Drunk in Love' video had something to do with it, and since I don't have a spare $3,000 to purchase the real Wendy Nichol's deal (Thanks for the temptation, Lingerie Lesbian!), I've been looking for a suitable alternative.

Getting a bit more detailed and into the fabric story, I've also lately been enamored of silk tulle. The softness of the material coupled with the transparency... there's just something very sensual about it. And I mean that in the truest sense of the word --- as in exciting and stimulating to the senses. I suppose it's just a mood. My first anniversary is next month, and I can't help but find myself paying special attention to a select few "occasion" pieces. Who knows? My love affair with nightgowns may pass as quickly as it's come... but hopefully not before I fulfill my dream of dancing around the apartment in at least one of these.

What are your thoughts on sheer gowns? Do you share my newfound love affair?

    I’ve long been in love with Sarafina Dreams and the one here is just beautiful! As is the Angela Friedman gown. As for my personal list, I’d add the Damaris SS13 robes – in every colour!

  2. Thursday says:

    I prefer a sheer robe over a gown in general, but that’s because robes are my most lived-in loungewear. I have to add to the chorus above though, the Mary Green could easily convert me!
    I did pick up a sheer peach number at Macy’s on my visit last year that has gotten a lot of wear this summer. Nothing like swishing round the house in chiffon!

  3. Lisa says:

    Yes yes and yes! I went through this obsession awhile back and continue to embrace it….long sheer gowns are fabulous and always a hit. Go for it!

  4. Megan says:

    Wow! These are outstanding! I keep coming back to look at them.

  5. Icy says:

    The Sarafina Dreams one is just stunning. I would want it in red (if they had red)!

  6. Rachel says:

    I stopped breathing at the Sarafina Dreams, and the Mary Green made me gasp for air.

  7. Jodi says:

    Yeah, the Mary Green one got me, too. Absolutely lovely.

  8. That Mary Green one is a great substitute for the Beyoncé one! I looooove sheer long gowns :).

  9. Trish says:

    I would love to have any of them but the Mary Green stopped me in my tracks.

    Ooh the Mary Green gown is divine!
