I keep trying Calida because every once in awhile I find a gem and it makes it all worth while. I still have some Etude camisoles from 20 years ago that look new. This nightgown is not a gem. Even accounting for Calida's vanity sizing ( I ordered the XXS) this soft little nightie just doesn't look or feel as good as it should. The side view is fine but from the front the slit gives a very square appearance. Calida is the only company that can make my hourglass figure look straight or square. You also really have to fiddle with the shoulder straps to get a height that works. For any degree of cleavage coverage I had to adjust the sides right up under my armpits. All in all just no good. Calida doesn't make garments for thin large breasted women. This will probably be fine for one of my college age daughters so for the price I'll keep it. It's also very very thin – you will see your navel through the fabric.
I ordered some night wear from B Up here on STP and found the fit and quality to be exceptional for those who have the same problems with Calida.

I've ordered many Calida garments from Sierra Trading Post and have never been disappointed - except, perhaps, in the sizing - some items were just too big. I am a size 0, and this gown in xxs fits perfectly. As always, STP descriptions and photos are very accurate. This is a great little gown for hot summer nights.

I bought this because it was a great price and was really surprised how much i loved it. The length is just right (I am 5'4"/ 117lbs) . The small was perfect and there was no shrinkage after washing. I would buy another if it came in different colors.

This nightgown clings in just the right way, and because it's Calida, it's comfy, too! I am completely satisfied with this purchase! (Calida seems to fit a little big on me, so I always order a size down. I did the same thing with this nightgown, and it fits great.)

Very soft ribbed fabric and a nice length--about mid thigh. I would have needed a size larger to feel great in it, but I decided to keep it to give to my daughter who is getting married soon. I know she will love it.
MicroModal â€“ the worldâ€™s softest fiber, it makes textiles naturally more beautiful. Fabrics of MicroModal are feather-light and natural skin huggers.|This fiber is particularly well suited to blends with cotton since both fibers have similar properties. The fiber is made from beech wood, a natural raw material. The pulp used for fiber production is made by Lenzing to guarantee consistent and reliable quality. The natural softener makes Modal fabrics pleasant to the touch even after repeated washing. Hardening of the rayon fabric, which occurs as a result of limestone deposits and traces of detergent, becomes a thing of the past with Lenzing Modal. |This natural raw material guarantees ideal wear properties since the fiber is gentle to the skin. Products of this micro quality are persuasive in both their handle and fineness
