According to statistics, you’re going to spend roughly one third of your lifetime asleep, so you might as well take advantage of it with some great sleepwear. The first rule of pajamas is “Know thyself.” Do you sweat at night? Then you’ll need something breathable like cotton. Do you hate the feeling of pants in bed? Try a sleep shirt or shorts. Will anything but the smoothest fabrics keep you awake? You’ll want the cool slinky touch of silk or satin.Whatever your preference, we’ve rounded up the best women’s pajama sets below. Scroll on for all of our favorites.
The Best Cheap Pajamas
In Bloom by Jonquil Satin Short Pajamas
I almost did a double take looking at this set: from the scalloped lace detail to the flattering cut, it looks so much more expensive than it is. Imagine yourself slipping into these after a long night of pampering.
When your boyfriend gets sick of you borrowing his clothes, buy this breezy oversize sleep shirt for yourself. The fit is supposed to mimic classic men’s tailoring, but with a lighter, more breathable fabric.
If you’re looking to adopt a more eco-friendly lifestyle this year, try cupro. Made from recycled cotton, it’s one of the most sustainable materials you can choose. It falls like silk but feels just as breathable as cotton.
Here’s a chic sleep romper that’s comfortable in all the right places but still looks cool — perfect for spending the night at a beach house, cabin update, or any other vacation that’s really just an adult sleepover with your friends.
It’s such a freeing feeling sleeping with your legs loose underneath the covers. This Sleepy Jones kaftan is made out of linen for maximum “airiness.” And it’s so chic that you can also wear it as a cover-up poolside.
I used to be a chronic overpacker, subject to overweight luggage fees and the humiliation of scrambling to reorganize all my stuff in the check-in line. Saving space with less voluminous pieces — like this Equipment set — has been a lifesaver for me. The pieces fold up into a small pouch for easy transport.
