Ok, I have to admit something. Sometimes when my alarm clock goes off, the first thought I have when I open my eyes is “how long until I can crawl back into bed?” Granted it’s not every day – or even most days – but some days I honestly just can’t wait until I’m back in my soft, comfy pajamas huddled in blankets, moments away from down-feathered nocturnal bliss.
For those days you just can’t wait to get back in bed having a pair of cozy pajamas waiting for you is everything. But, of course, not all pajamas are created equal, especially when you’re wearing plus size pajamas. Like, who doesn’t love those two-piece pajama sets with boxy button-down tops and too-tight-to-sit-in bottoms? Yeah, no. Finding plus size PJs that are comfortable enough to live in and fit you just right may seem like the thing dreams are made of but the truth is, they’re out there. You just have to know how to look for them. Break out of your PJ prison and read on for a few of my tips on how you can find comfort in plus size pajamas for women and start living the dream every night (and some days too).
Made from 100% Supima cotton these just might be the softest thing you’ll ever sleep in. And a bonus of sleeping in a dress is no restrictive waistbands cramping your comfort as you drift off to dreamland. Plus, with the longer midcalf or shorter knee-length gown to choose from, you don’t have to worry about tripping on these evening gowns when you roll out of bed in the morning. Trust me, these aren’t the cartoon-character-printed-ruffled-dress nightgowns of your youth. Plus size Supima cotton nightgowns come in a variety of colors, prints (very grown-up prints), and lengths to choose from so you don’t have to compromise on style either. You can even get a long sleeve nightgown for the colder months and stick with a short sleeve 100% cotton nightgown for those humid summer nights. Gotta love that breathable cotton, am I right?
Who doesn’t love a warm, comfy pair of flannel pajamas on a cold winter’s night? There’s just something so comforting about bumming around the house in a pair of flannel pajamas on a lazy Sunday morning, wouldn’t you agree? Look for plus size flannel pajamas that are made from quality cotton flannel that’s brushed inside and out for that extra cozy, soft feeling you definitely want in a pair of gonna-live-in-these-all-weekend PJs. And if sizing is a concern, look for sets where you can buy (and size) the tops and bottoms separately, guaranteeing you get the right size for you. Because nothing is sadder than an uncomfortable pair of pajamas.
If you’ve ever woken up sweating for no good reason (been there, done that) then a cotton modal sleep set is the pajama you never knew you needed (but won’t be able to sleep soundly without). Thanks to a breathable cotton blend, cotton modal sleep sets are designed to keep you cool and comfortable all night long while also being super cozy. The extra bit of stretch in the fabric doesn’t hurt either – especially when you’re tossing and turning your way to a good night’s sleep.
For nights when flannel seems a little much but you still want something cozy and warm go for a pair of knit pajamas instead. Made from super-soft jersey cotton, a pair of plus size knit PJs is definitely weekend-lounge worthy or work-from-home-office appropriate. P.S. The knit pants come with an adjustable elastic waistband; something you’re for sure gonna want after living in them all day and night.
Nothing beats waking up to an unexpected snow day in a pair of plush fleece pajamas. It’s like being wrapped in a snuggly, warm hug – which definitely helps take the edge off of that “brrrr” factor when the covers come off. Plus the anti-pill feature keeps them looking new even if you wear them All. Winter. Long. Don’t worry, if you can’t handle an all-fleece sleep set, soft and cozy fleece pants pair great with a cooler cotton sleep shirt too. With so many colors and prints to choose from, how can you say no to the fun of fleece this winter?
