Making plans to spruce up your sleepwear wardrobe? Do you want to start wearing something other than old, worn-out shorts and a baggy tee to bed? Perhaps you need something that will make you look and feel cozy, yet sophisticated at the same time? We have compiled a list of some ultra-comfy women’s sleepwear items that will make you look just as good as you feel. This year, consider adding a few of these pieces that every woman should own to your wardrobe.
A silky smooth nightie is a comfy pajamas item that instantly makes a woman feel decadent, feminine, and luxuriously comfortable. If you don’t already have a silk nightie in your nighttime wardrobe, definitely consider making this investment. It’s the perfect lightweight sleepwear item to have on a balmy summer evening or even on a chillier night in the cold seasons (if you plan to crank the heat in your house or layer up with tons of blankets in bed). If you prefer something other than the traditionally shorter style of a nightie, shop around for varying lengths; mid-length and ankle-length nightgowns are always classically stylish and comfortable.
Another super comfy material to consider adding to your sleepwear wardrobe is cotton, especially if it’s in the style of a caftan, the ultimate women’s loungewear items. Like many nightgowns, cotton caftans offer plenty of length and make your sleepwear look regal. Hollywood stars like Angelina Jolie can be seen regularly wearing a caftan, something she claims is great both for sleeping in and throwing on while running errands. That’s another great perk about caftans: You can wear it to bed and you can wear it out and about, and no one will have any inkling you are still in your pajamas because you’ll look so naturally elegant.
Though a pair of slippers isn’t technically the kind of sleepwear you would have on when you crawl into bed, it is the kind of thing you’ll want to have on for all your bedtime rituals. If after soaking in a hot bath before bed, why let your feet hit the cold, hard ground when you can slip into some fluffy slippers? Everything you do before bed just becomes so much more comfy and luxurious when you have a quality pair of go-to slippers you can wear right up until the moment you climb into bed. The added bonus of slippers is that they aren’t a clothing item restricted to nighttime activities; you can wear them around the house any time of day.
While slippers aren't something you can comfortably wear in bed, a pair of thicky, fluffy socks definitely are. If you have a preference for wearing socks to bed rather than sleeping barefoot, it’s best to invest in good quality material that will last you for a long time and keep your feet warm and toasty in bed, especially on a cold winter night. Who can resist the retro-inspired yet inarguably classic and comfy style of a t-shirt, pajama shorts, and long, cozy socks?
This is a must-have, especially during the fall and winter seasons. Plaid flannel pajamas will keep you warm in bed and even when you are out of bed, milling around the house taking care of last-minute things before getting some shut-eye. If you are heading into the holiday season, you could even consider gifting family members with sets of plaid flannel pajamas and get a matching theme going for your holiday card. Most people love comfy plaid flannel pajamas so much that they find it hard to limit themselves to just one set. And with so many styles and color variations, why should you? Treat yourself and add a few new sets of plaid flannel pajamas to your nighttime wardrobe.
Like slippers, a robe isn’t typically something you would wear in bed. But wouldn’t it be so much nicer to wear a robe when you are doing all the things you have to do leading right up to bed? A soft, fluffy petite robe will provide an added layer of warmth and make you feel all cozy, sort of like walking around it a plush blanket. When getting ready for bed or doing the last few things you like to do at night to set yourself up for a productive day, a robe makes everything better. Plus, when you wake up on a chilly morning, it’ll be so much easier to get out of bed when you know you can immediately slip into a warm robe to make breakfast.
