Any ideas on where to buy such a thing? All I find in the shops are gruesome nana-nighties that only reach your ankles (am 5'7") in nasty acrylic.

The white company? Me and Em? My starters for 6 :-)

Hmm, yes auntlucy White Co possibly... just looked, and they do have this but is it properly, totally, sweep-the-floor long?

And it says Keep Away from Fire hmm

This site is pretty comprehensive:

Oooh, the whitenightie site has some nice things... don't like frilly or lacy, but I like this short sleeved one BUT... it's only 114cm and it has to be really loooooong, not ankle length; their longest ones are 130cm and that's still not floor-sweeping length <fussy>

This is a US company but they deliver overseas, and I think these fit the Victorian heroine bill ...

I used to get ones like that in Past Times, might not be long enough for you though, they were for me but I am a short arse.

Try Herroom, they have sweeping very full nightdresses in lots of different colours, they're so soft and comfortable and gorgeous, they are from the US but they despatch quickly, hope this helps.

I have several of their long Victorian nighties. I rock the 'ghost at bedtime' look grin
