Pros:

  • Shockingly soft fabric
  • Modal is temperature regulating
  • Flattering design

Eberjey Gisele PJ

Eberjey Gisele PJ

The Eberjey Gisele PJ is a great luxury PJ. They are a little on the pricey side, but by most accounts, the price is worth it for the incredibly soft fabric and stylish design.

You can get the Gisele in a short or long version, and they are perfect for the summer months. The material is exceptionally soft but not sheer. Not only are they super stylish, classic, and modest, they’re also smooth, with a little bit of stretch to them. This lets you sleep and move around in them comfortably.

The only downside to these PJs is that they have to be hand washed and put flat to dry, so they’re a little bit more high maintenance than some brands.

Pros:

  • Lightweight but not too thin
  • Classic style
  • Comfy to sleep in

Cons:

  • You have to hand wash them

These PJs are a high-quality, super soft classic style that makes an excellent gift or a nice splurge if you want to treat yourself.

Tips on Finding Comfy Women’s Pajamas

A lot of things go into making a comfortable pair of PJs. Here are a few things to look out for.

Material: When it comes to comfort, the most important factor is the material that the sleepwear is made from. There are many different fabric options, so you need to have some idea of what works best for you.

Cotton is excellent if you want something soft and lightweight, especially for warmer weather, but it doesn’t work well to keep you warm. If you need something to keep you warm, look for cashmere, wool or fleece. If you want a year-round choice to you warm in the winter and cool in the summer, try silk.

Fit: Finding an excellent fitting set can often be a little bit of a challenge since many retailers use small, medium, large options rather than numbered sizing. If you find it difficult to get the sizing right, you may need to look for companies that sell their sleepwear as separates rather than a set.

Price: For a lot of women, pajamas are a bit of an extravagance. You can always find an old t-shirt and sweats to sleep in when you’re at home, but it sometimes doesn’t cut it if you’re around people who don’t usually see you in your PJs.

Some of the sets on our list are pretty pricey, so they can make a lovely gift if you want to treat someone special. If you’re on a tight budget, check out Target – definitely one of the best places for good quality inexpensive options.

Pattern or Color: If you’re in a PJ with a color or print that you love, you feel more like yourself, and that can go a long way towards how comfortable you feel.

Pajamas with quirky patterns or material are a great way to show your personality, especially if other people aren’t going to see them and you’re only shopping to please yourself. The same goes for beautiful, luxuriously soft cotton and silks.

Quality: Most PJs aren’t built to last too long, and if you’re wearing the same pair daily, you can expect buttons to eventually fall off, fabric to stretch, color to fade, and elastic waistbands to break.

If you would prefer to buy a set that’ll last a long time, look for the brands with a high-quality reputation, like Garnett Hill, L.L. Bean, and Hanna Andersson. They are all known for their excellent quality and durability.
