Early Black Friday Women’s Pajamas Sales:
Even if you’re more into loungewear or knock-around linens, it’s never the wrong time to snag a new pajama set, especially when many are currently working from home and wearing sleepwear while wide awake (we’re with you).
What are the best quality pajamas?
The best quality pajamas are durable, stylish and comfortable enough not to hinder sleep. They often are made from lightweight materials derived from natural fibers like silk, cotton or bamboo viscose. These materials are not only softer than synthetics but hypoallergenic and breathable.
Like with any garment, stitching and design play a big role in the quality of pajamas. Look for brands that also take functionality into account when designing their sleepwear. Things like adjustable drawstrings and pockets seem like small details, but they make a big difference in how a piece feels and moves.
Lunya is one of our favorite places to shop for women’s pajamas. They have an abundance of washable silk sleep sets and dresses that are gorgeous, light, and feel luxurious against the skin.
Soma is another online store to find high quality pajamas for women. They also often have sales! And of course, Amazon is always worth checking out. They have no shortage of sleep sets in a variety of materials and price points. It’s nearly impossible to leave there with an empty cart.
What are the best pajamas for people who get hot at night?
Temperature and sleep are directly related. The lower the heat is, the easier it is to fall asleep, which is why it’s helpful to choose pajamas with breathable materials. If night sweats are a concern for you, look for pajamas with lightweight, moisture-wicking fabric to help keep you cool and dry.
Some of our favorite women’s pajamas for hot sleepers include:
Is satin or silk better for pajamas?
Both satin and silk feel buttery soft and luxurious against the skin. Here is where they vary:
Believe it or not, satin is a weave and not a fabric at all. It’s made from a blend of materials, such as nylon, polyester and silk. It’s not as breathable as silk, so it may not be ideal for hot sleepers. However, it also can be more affordable, still having the glossy look of the latter.
Silk is a natural fiber that is breathable. It’s a great option if you want something moisture-wicking and naturally temperature regulating. It’s also hypoallergenic, so if you have sensitive skin, it’s the material to know.
