As autumn weather grows chillier, the only thing better than snuggling up in a cozy pair of pajamas is snuggling up in a cozy pair of flannel pajamas—especially with a throw blanket and the best fall movies. And while warm socks, slippers and bathrobes are amazing, if you’re looking for the best gifts for her, nothing beats women’s flannel pajamas.
The best women’s flannel pajamas are the ones you’ll want to live in—kind of like silk pajamas or loungewear sets but designed, above all, for a good night’s sleep. You want to look for PJs that are as lightweight or heavy as you prefer, have enough stretch (especially if you’re a restless sleeper) and hold up after numerous washes.
We found the best women’s flannel pajamas based on high user reviews, quality of materials and versatility, like whether they’re designed for seasonal or year-round wear. Here are our choices for the best flannel pajamas for women.
