Sweet dreams are practically guaranteed once you slip into any of these comfy PJs.
The right pair of pajamas can make a real difference in the kind of sleep you get. Considering that we spend almost one-third of our lives sleeping, this is a big deal. In fact, sleepwear is as important as your sheets, pillows, and mattress.
When shopping for the best pajamas, remember that comfort is key. You want them to be soft so they feel good against your skin. They need to be roomy enough not to bunch up or goose you while you’re twisting and turning and trying to drift off to sleep. And it’s important that they keep you at your preferred temperature—not too hot, not too cold.
Whether you prefer long or short, cotton or linen, tailored or loose, here are some of the best pajamas for women. They feel as comfortable as that ratty, old, oversized T-shirt you’ve been wearing to bed forever, but they take your sleep style—and sleep quality—up a few notches. While you’re upgrading, check out the best robes for women, slippers, fleece-lined leggings, and loungewear sets, too. And don’t forget to grab a good pair of pajamas for the men in your life!
