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.
