What's Up With the Sleepwear on Mad Men? Case in Point, Trudy.

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Pete Campbell's pregnant wife Trudy made a late-breaking appearance on last night's episode of Mad Men—in a truly, uh, spectacular sherbet peignoir. In fact, all the women's sleepwear on the AMC hit show is pretty mindblowing—some of Betty (Draper) Francis's nighties (like last night's navy blue puffball) leave us scratching our heads. How does anyone get any sleep in these ruffly contraptions?
