Erica Tanov, linen pajamas and bra, 1993. Collection of The Museum at FIT. #lingeriehistory / Erica Tanov launched her line of sleepwear in 1991. Many of her designs have been inspired by the simple, classic look of her grandfather’s silk pajamas. The loosely fitted top and pants of this sleepwear ensemble are clearly based on the Tanov’s interest in men’s styles, but the sexy, bandeau bra is purely feminine.

Valerie Porr lounging pajamas, printed silk, 1976, USA, 99.14.3, Collection of The Museum at FIT. #lingeriehistory / The silhouette of these lounging pajamas was inspired by the 1930s, but the printed silk was decidedly of-the-moment. From the late 1960s through the mid-1970s, emphasis on all things “natural,” including the bare body, was often manifested in revealing clothing styles—but it was also referenced in other ways, such as the motif of a nude woman on this fabric.
