Why you need silk pajamas in your life
Sure, flannel pajamas are cozy, and some of the best pajamas for women are made of cotton, but there’s truly nothing like the feel of silk pajamas against your skin. “Silk is softer and smoother than both of those fabrics and is ideal for sleeping,” says sleep expert Smita Patel, DO. “Because it retains your skin’s natural moisture, it’s also a good body-temperature regulator, helping you stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter.”
For most of us, silk is a splurge—luxurious and expensive, so luckily, there are options for silky pajamas, too. Made of fabrics like polyester, rayon, and nylon, they’re more affordable and easier to care for than silk, but they still feel, well, silky. According to Cora Harrington, founder of The Lingerie Addict and author of In Intimate Detail: How to Choose, Wear, and Love Lingerie, there’s a place in your wardrobe for both. “It’s important to remember that silk is a fiber and satin is a weave,” she says. “If you’re spending the money, make sure you’re buying real silk. If you’re looking for a more budget-friendly option, consider a fabric that has a lovely weight and ‘hand,’ an industry term for things that feel good to the touch.”
We’ve rounded up a selection of the best silk pajamas and the best silky pajamas—all of which feel super good to the touch—so you can sleep well at any price. Many even work as loungewear sets for lazy days at home and would make welcome Valentine’s Day gifts or great gifts for women (including, ahem, yourself) at any time of year. Once you’ve found your favorite, check out these women’s slippers and bathrobes to complete your cozy wardrobe.
