The babydoll got its name from the hem length, which comes to about six inches above the knees, which is similar to a mini dress.
The babydoll was popularized by a movie called Baby Doll. The film was released in 1956, starring Carroll Baker, a sexy 19-year-old virgin. The style of the nightgown she wore in the film soon became a “must have” for everyone.

It was at that time that it became quite popular with the younger generation because the style made one think of youth and innocence.
