does anyone know any highstreet shops doing nightdresses for little girls? Its the only thing that dd has specifically asked for Christmas.....a nightdress that goes to the floor with buttons and a ribbon on top ( well those are her words, lol)
so, can anyone help me out? Boden do a lovely one but bit pricey for nightwear
thanks so much

Just checked Verbaudet and they only do PJs for girls and Next have a 2pack of nighties in pink with monkeys on the front.

I bet somewhere like BHS would do them.

Petit Bateau make some brilliant ones but hard to get hold of in the UK

Nighties are difficult - fire regulations make it very tough to sell the kind of floaty twirly ones little girls dream of - which is maybe why you only find them in pricey places - ie that can charge for what the retardants cost.

So all the ones we've had (Bon Nuit eg) have come from sales.

I'm sure I saw some in BHS and woolworths recently but you have the 100% polyester problem. (dd2 will only wear nightdresses and i'd prefer to get cotton now for her skin. Most of them are currently polyester). I brought some from the white company, pretty pricey even in the sale.

Good hunting

It's very difficult to get cotton ones as they need to be fire-treated - that's why they're expensive and why so few places do them. The Children's Warehouse do some nice ones - I think they're still pricey but not quite as bad as Boden. White Co do lovely ones - but probably Boden prices (or possibly worse!)

i agree nighties are hard to find. matalan have a small selection, though

boden ones are lovely though, thick cotton and wash really well. the white co ones don't wash as well

children's warehouse
