I must admit that when I have first seen Luna, I had two associations: a pregnant Greek goddess or a Victorian schoolgirl who had someone cut her petticoat over the knee. The cut of the gown does not emphasize the waist or shape, and the upper ruffle lies exactly on the collapse of the curvature of the breast, which draws attention to their flabbiness (if you have a flabby bust). I was willing to take off this tent and send it back for a moment, but in spite of myself I decided to wear Luna for a moment … and I am very happy that I did that.
Half-polyester, half-silk fabric is perfect for sleeping: it keeps you warm when it’s chilly and provides breathability when it’s warmer. It is not a shiny material – slightly rough, exactly halfway between satin and chiffon.
My absolute admiration goes to the amount of material used – when I raise my hands, you can see that the gown was sewn on the basis of a rectangle of fabric, so with the arms down, it folds into many, many folds (see how the association with ancient Greece comes to mind?) And it moves beautifully when walking. Wide sleeves also look like something straight from the Disney fairy tale. I chose the size M / L, although I would honestly say I would go for
As you can see, even a fan of the clothes hugging the curves and emphasizing the figure of the hourglass was charmed with the silk sack (as my boyfriend called it, to which I replied that I would not wear a belt to bed, deal with it) because of the blessed feeling of melting into a pool of silk. Luna provides you with sleep and relax so good that is feels if you were petted by small kittens all night long. I have the impression that this cut can be great for pregnant women – it is so forgiving that it is hard to find something looser … and so nice. If t-shirts stolen from men were fancy robes, they would be Luna!
When it comes to comfort, the Mandarin-inspired collar was a little scratchy, but after the first
I miss something that I could wear on the bottom – maybe not galligaskins, but loose shorties would be welcomed, because on a person a bit higher than me, the shirt would be too short. If you are taller than 175 cm then consider the larger size 🙂 I regret a little that I did not choose the
Luna is a luxury piece because it forces you to rest – a loungewear item in which you cannot really do housework, sweep, clean up … because how? You’ll get your sleeve wet or you will spray detergent on it. In something so abundant (and in 50% of silk!) Rest is kind of enforced, so if you like me and you have a tendency to say stuff like “since I got up to get myself a cup of tea, I might as well wipe up the stove with a wet cloth” at 10 PM, buy yourself Luna. The optimal level of physical activity whilst wearing it is dignified transferring from one position to another, possibly reaching for a cup of tea standing on the bedside table and clutching your pearls. I recommend you, dear participant of the rat race, make yourself rested. As invaluable Dita von Teese (whom I am ready to erect an altar for) says, luxury is the ability to surround yourself with beautiful things for the pure pleasure of communing with them, and wearing something so highly impractical seems to me to meet these criteria – sensual pleasure from how a few meters of fabric move on the body is worth stopping your labours at the end of the day.
Luna costs about 130-150 PLN (about $35) depending on the store, and a year ago I would have killed myself laughing at the thought that I could spend so much on a nightgown. This piece, however, is definitely worth this price, not only because of the amount of fabric used
