So being rather big busted I have a real tough time finding nighties. I want just a short dress thing, a internet search tells me it's called a "chemise". Anyway - a "chemise", but with some structure up top. Some support, you know? I'm not of the bra-less sleeping set. Not comfortable at all.
They don't exist from what I can tell. I've seen close - but way out of my price range. So this weekend I took one of my wonderful and indispensable Bravado nursing tank tops, and sewed a skirt onto it. Voila! Just what I've been looking for! Why can I not find something like this to buy?
The skirt is made from the bottom of three old tshirts I layered. I did no measuring and cobbled and jerry rigged the whole way - in fact it's still a work in progress, but I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. I think I will keep an eye out for sports bras and bra-in tanks at Goodwill to which I might add different types of skirts. I'd love one with some black laciness attached for a certain degree of sex appeal.
