Negligee - The negligee is a form of wear intended for night wear and in the bedroom. It is a form of nightgown; first introduced in France in the 18th Century, where it mimicked the heavy head-to-toe style of women's day dresses of the time. By the 1920s it began to mimic women's satin single-layer evening dresses of the time. The term 'negligee' was used of a Royal Doulton run of ceramic figurines in 1927, showing women wearing what appears to be a one-piece knee-length silk slip, trimmed with lace. The word comes from the French, 'to make light of' (referring to something light, a frippery to be cast aside). Although the evening-dresses style of nightwear made moves towards the modern negligee style, it was only after WWII that nightwear changed from being primarily utitilitarian to being primarily sensual or even erotic; the negligee emerged strongly as a form of lingerie. Modern negligees were often much looser and made of sheer and semi-translucent fabrics and trimmed with lace or other fine material, and bows. Multiple layers of fabric were often used. The modern negligee has spread to a mass market, benefitting from the introduction of cheaper fabrics such as nylon and its finer successors. From the 1940s to the 1970s, the trend was for negligees to become shorter in length (e.g.: the babydoll of the 1970s). Negligees made from the 1940s to the 1970s are now collectable items.
In the UK in 2004, negligees account for only four per cent of women's nighware/lingerie sales, women's pajamas having dominated since the mid 1980s. However, UK negligee sales are said to have been the fastest increasing sector of the market since 1998 (Source: BBC , Dec 2004).

Night shirt- A nightshirt is a special kind of nightshirt (shirt) used to sleep in.
As a purely bedtime garment, the nightshirt is the successor of an undergarment used by Europeans through the 19th Century. This undergarment was worn all day under outer clothing. At night the outer clothing was removed, and men and women slept in the long shirt-like garment. This smock was longer for women than for men. Upon arising in the morning, the outer garments were again put on.
The major diffence in the use of the nightshirt(lingerie) is that it replaces all clothing worn during the day. It is removed after arising and put away for use during the next sleeping period.
