Today, ladies' nightwear is a big business, with numerous styles from which to choose. And probably some of us cannot imagine that there were times when specific nightwear did not exist. Yet specialized sleepwear is actually a fairly recent invention.
Provided here is a brief guide to ladies' nightwear from past to present.
Chemises are the tunic-like garments worn in ancient cultures. By the Middle Ages, the chemise had developed into an early form of underwear. The long garments protected clothing from sweat and body oils. Chemises were much easier to clean than the outer garments, so it was common to have several chemises and rotate them between washings.
Chemises were also worn for sleeping. Both men and women used to take off their outer clothes and slept in chemises.
Nowadays men do not wear chemises any more but women do. There is a great variety of choices. They are short, light and of course sexy!
Negligees are considered to be the first widely distributed item of ladies' nightwear. The first negligee was introduced in France in the 1700s. It was long and heavy, as were the gowns of the era.
In the 1920s they began to mirror the short satin evening dresses that were popular at that time. But only after World War II negligees were specifically designed as sexy underwear.
Women of our time like negligees a lot for their practicality and style.
Nightgowns and nightshirts have developed from the chemise style at the beginning of the 20th century. They are generally simple, plain shirts of different lengths.
Nightgowns vary widely in design.
In modern times, the line between negligees and nightshirts has almost been blurred. Nightgowns are mostly longer and heavier, made of cotton or flannel. Negligees are shorter and sexier, made of such fabrics like silk or satin.
Pyjamas can be traced back to the 17th century in South and West Asia. By the 18th century, British missionaries had chosen this style as nightwear for men. However, pyjamas became a popular form of sleepwear for females in Western society much later, in the mid-1980s.
Now, pyjamas are available for women in a great variety of styles and colours. They are very comfortable and many ladies all over the world prefer wearing them.
The pajama style is a classic one, but there are sexy pajamas out there as well.
Today, nearly anything can be worn as ladies' nightwear. However, many women love silk lingerie styles for their luxurious sex appeal and because they are soft, flowing and lightweight.
You can find nightwear versions of all sorts of sexy lingerie items. For instance, babydolls.
Babydolls are said to have been popularized by the 1956 movie Baby Doll starring Carroll Baker in the title role, which essentially marked the beginning of the enduring popularity of the style for adults.
Modern babydolls often vary considerably from the styles of the 1960s and 1970s. Babydolls from the 1950s to the early 1980s are now collectible vintage items.
The baby doll lingerie category has become very popular and the items of this style are now available in a sufficiently wide variety.
They can be translucent or even transparent that makes them look very sexy indeed.
Besides all the types of nightwear mentioned above you can probably find other clothing items to wear for sleep.
Many women like wearing a short Tee with nice panties or their boyfriends' boxers, everything depends on the taste

The wife who found pictures of her husband's wedding to another woman at Facebook
The man who was flirting online with a 21-year-old bimbo... who was actually his wife
The pair divorced, bitterly, just after their baby's first birthday, and eight weeks later Simon married the woman from Australia, the woman he had had an affair with and whom he had described to the fake Laura as 'disposable'.
The couple who got divorce after the husband was caught banging virtual prostitute in Second Life
The man who killed his wife of 35 years with guinea pig ornament over a Facebook love rival
Mr Walker was said to have been distressed by the call and contacted the Richardsons' eldest daughter, Joanne Greenhill.
Richardson had fetched two fishing knives from the garage and took the pig from his younger daughter's bedroom. During a row with his wife about her meeting with Mr Walker, she went to walk away and he hit her four or five times with the ornament. The Richardsons married in 1974 but the court heard that by last year, there were 'significant marital problems'. Mrs Richardson, who worked as a nurse in a residential home, was unhappy in the relationship and had indicated she intended to leave. She had made contact with Mr Walker and they kept in touch by calls, texts, Facebookand, on occasion, meetings.

The Married man who drove 400 miles to meet a Facebook woman... only to discover it was a hoax set up by rival football fans
Mr Slann's wife, Louise, 32, then discovered that he had intended to have an affair and ended their marriage. He had met the two unnamed Liverpudlians during a holiday in Cancun, Mexico. The three spent the time arguing about their teams who are bitter North-West rivals.
On one occasion, Mr Slann was thrown into a pool. When the Liverpool fans returned to the UK they came up with the plan to humiliate him by setting up a false Facebook account pretending to be a Scottish woman called Emma. He'd been chatting to this girl on Facebook for about a month or so. On the night she asked him to go to Scotland he was on the road for about nine hours. And then when he got to this remote farm she sent him a text to say she was still in work. Not only had he driven for nine hours, but he had to wait for about another three and a half hours for her to finish work.

The Vodafone employee who was fired over a Tweet to T-Mobile
"There will be an official statement (released) about the network problem. Please be patient!"
Tamas, as a member of Vodafone's marketing staff responsible for the carrier's Twitter messages, decided it would funny to retweet T-Mobiles tweet with a dash of humor to send it on its way. The tweet said: "OK, give us a ring! ;) RT @tmobilehungary There will be an official statement (released) about the network problem. Please be patient!" Needless to say, Vodafone were not best pleased and quick to issue a statement of their own saying that Vodafone had nothing to do with this reply but it would gladly lend a helping hand to T-Mobile to fix its problem. Vodafone didn't leave it there either, the company announced that the Twitterer acted without authorization and the remark was inappropriate.

On 2003, Illegal immigrants from India and Pakistan being smuggled from mainland China to Hong Kong were found inside suitcases.
On 2001, a 135-lb. woman was hidden behind the dashboard of a car. The "passenger" might be quite cramped and uncomfortable and the automobile difficult to maneuver after the modifications, but the ruse wouldn't have to be maintained for long — the car could be loaded just out of sight of border agents, driven the short distance to the crossing, and unloaded not far across the other side.

Duk-Koo Kim – after his brutal death both the referee who officiated the match and Kim's mother committed suicide
Mancini was defending his WBA lightweight title for the second time when he climbed through the ropes at Caesars. In the 13th round, Mancini unleashed a barrage of 39 straight punches. Somehow, Kim survived the round. Early in the 14th, Mancini connected with two big rights to Kim's head and the Korean dropped to the canvas. He beat the count of 10, but referee Richard Green stopped the fight. Kim was carried out of the ring by stretcher and rushed to Desert Springs Hospital. He died four days later.
This fight became famous for the aftermath: Kim's mom and the referee Richard Green committed suicide months after Kim's death. It's also said that this fight changed boxing rules and posterior fights went from 15 rounds to just 12. Mancini suffered from depression and was never the same fighter again, though he continued to box until 1993.
Becky Zerlentes – the first woman to die in the ring
Evander Holyfield – had his ear bite off by Mike Tyson
Frankie Campbell – had his brain knocked off from his skull
They said that Campbell knocked down Baer in the 2nd round, and this, enraged Baer bringing Campbell to an end. While other people talk about Baer losing the 3rd and 4th round in a row, and in the 5th round he couldn't take it anymore and became enrage because Tillie "Kid" Herman -former friend and trainer of Baer who switched corners overnight - was taunting and jeering Baer. Campbell's brain was knocked off loose from his skull and was pronounced dead the next day. Baer was charged with manslaughter but later was acquitted of all charges. He would give entire earnings to Campbell's family from succeeding bouts.
Jess Willard – the heavyweight champion who was bitten off by a contestant 60 pounds smaller
Dempsey growls there's nothing to worry about. Willard is bigger but he's not in the shape of the challenger. The Manassa Mauler' Jack Dempsey brutally beat down and dethroned reigning 6'6 champion Jess Willard in three violent rounds at the Bay View Park Arena in Toledo, Ohio. Dempsey fractured the champion's jaw in the first round and knocked him down seven times in the opening stanza alone. After two more rounds of savagery Willard's corner threw in the towel to rescue their bloody and bruised fighter. Jess Willard survives by the margin of minutes, perhaps only seconds, one of the worst beatings in the history of prize fighting.
Dempsey would go on to reign as heavyweight champion for seven straight years until he was decisioned in 1926 by Gene Tunney.
Richard Grant – had his jaw broken when his defeated opponent hit him with no gloves on
Unfortunately the tale does not end there. James Butler continued his career after this incident but could never duplicate his earlier success. In October of 2004, Butler was arrested and charged with murdering Sam Kellerman, brother of HBO Boxing analyst Max Kellerman. He (ironically) used a hammer and set his body on fire after a dispute. Butler pled guilty in 2006 and was sentenced to 29 years in prison.
Benny Paret – went into coma and died 10 days after a controversial fight against Fullmer
The last fight was the subject of controversies. It is theorized that one of the reasons Paret died was that he was vulnerable due to the beatings he took in his previous three fights. New York State boxing authorities were criticized for giving Paret clearance to fight just several months after he was knocked out by Gene Fullmer in his second to last bout. The actions of Paret at the weigh in before his final fight have come under scrutiny. It is alleged that Paret taunted Griffith by calling him Maricón (Spanish slang for "faggot"). Griffith wanted to fight Paret on the spot but was restrained. The referee Ruby Goldstein, a respected veteran, came under criticism for not stopping the fight sooner. Goldstein would never be the referee for a fight again as a result of the controversy from this fight.
The fight was the centerpiece of a 2005 documentary entitled Ring of Fire: The Emile Griffith Story. At the end of the documentary Griffith who has harbored guilt over the incident over the years is introduced to Paret's son. The son embraced Griffith and told him he was forgiven.
