Sometime around 1920s everything was changing
rapidly in the world of lingerie. For the first
time machine-made underwear became a lot more
affordable price-wise while still being made
out of the same fine and luxury fabrics as the
high-end hand-made undergarments.
During the thirties, fitness
became fashionable and under the pressure from
the hungry-for-change customers, manufacturers
finally started producing smaller, lighter and
foremost - better-fitting lingerie.
At the same time new fabrics
(nylon and elastane) were introduced and they
were a perfect match for the rising era of new
- fitted underclothes. Women wanted more
flexible foundations and all the basics were
transforming into their lightest form yet.
Sleepwear was changing as
well. Made out of transparent fabrics, with
round or V necks, night-gowns became narrower
and more revealing. Fashionable Oriental
kimonos had richly quilted cuffs and collars
while dressing jackets were hip-level long but
short-lived as the new star (pajama) took over
'For years women have
surreptitiously been stealing men's stuff...
pyjamas are now by far the smartest form of
Pajamas were made out of all
kinds of fancy fabrics (satin, cretonne,
velvet, crepe, lame etc.) in bright colors as
well as pinks and flesh tones; some even stayed
true to their Persian origins in coloring,
print and metallic thread embroidery.
Probably the most unusual
fact from this era when traveling was very
fashionable is that couture houses (couture =
dressmaking, sewing or needlework) of the time
were making the complete bed-sets (sheets,
cushions, sheets, coverlets and even
bags) to match lingerie sets. In one of its
issues from that time period Vogue stated, 'The
smart woman travels with lovely lingerie and
amusing pyjamas in her train.'
That, of course, was just
the beginning of the PJ's popularity.
At first they only replaced the nightgowns
since they were so much more comfortable and
easy to care for. But soon after that the form
of pajama was used for lounging, beachwear,
evening wear and sportswear.
Today, PJ is just as popular
as it was when first introduced decades ago. We
have the bigger variety of materials available
than ever before, more solid colors and prints
than ever before, décor is only limited with
the imagination of the designers, but the form
remains - timeless.
