You’re done for the day and it’s time to start winding down for the night. In addition to reading a chapter in your book and catching up on the latest news, an important part of your nightly routine should be to put on some comfortable pajamas. Not only will it keep you comfortable, but it can help your mental transition from work to relaxation. So what are some of the things that you should keep an eye out for when looking for men’s sleepwear?
One of the first things that you should consider when looking for sleepwear is what fabric you most prefer. This is key to ensuring that you’re as comfortable as possible. The fabric that works best and is most comfortable will differ from person to person, so you’ll want to be sure to do some research and determine what fabric type is going to work best for you. Here are some of our favorite sleepwear fabrics:
If you want something that will keep you warm but won’t cause overheating, flannel is the perfect option for you. This fabric does an incredible job of keeping you warm without trapping any heat, which prevents any mid-sleep sweating. Men’s flannel pajamas are a great route if you like to sleep warm. Flannel is a classic fabric option, something that will never go out of style, so this is definitely a good way to go.
Fleece is well known for being simultaneously warm and breathable, a difficult combination to find in other fabrics used to make sleepwear. You can wear these pajamas in both the summertime and in the colder months. A pair of men’s fleece pajamas will deliver all year round.
Knit pajamas are known for being incredibly soft to the touch and are very stretchy. If your priority is to have ultra soft pajamas, you’ll want to look into men’s knit pajamas. Our knit pajamas are made with 100-percent cotton making them very breathable and a great option for warmer weather.
We recommend buying your pajamas in a set. Even if you don’t get your pajama tops and bottoms as a matching set, purchasing your sleepwear in a complete set will make things easier when you have to get ready for bed. Instead of digging around in your dresser to find some pajama pants and an old t-shirt, make it a point to get your men’s pajama pants and tops together.
We can’t talk about men’s sleepwear without touching on bathrobes. Robes are great at adding an extra layer over your clothes. You may want to throw one on because you forgot something in the kitchen before going to bed or in the morning while you go make a cup of coffee. Find a men’s robe that fits your style and keep it nearby for easy access!
While loungewear is a great option for when you’re around the house, we don’t recommend wearing it to bed. A pair of sweats will overheat you once you lay down for bed. Staying cool during the night will not only be more comfortable for you, but it’s an easy way to ensure a night of long, deep sleep. Save your loungewear for lounging and your sleepwear for sleeping.
At the end of the day, the most important thing is that you’re comfortable in your sleepwear. Whether you prefer a matching set of flannel pajamas or you’re more drawn to wearing a pair of fleece shorts with a lightweight t-shirt, make sure you’re focusing on stocking up your pajama drawer with pieces that will bring the right level of comfort for you.
