The best pajamas for women are listed below, and we’re confident you’ll find something perfect for you.
Available in 30 different patterns, from vibrant stripes to camo print. Light flannel fabric keeps you warm without weighing you down.
Customers warn that these PJs run big, so buy a size smaller than you usually wear if you don’t want a roomy fit.
Fit: These Del Rossa pajamas are loose and baggy. If you prefer a slim fit, order a size smaller than you normally buy. We love the drawstring waist because it lets us control how and where the pants cling to our body
Fabric: Slip into these 100% cotton flannel PJs for a relaxing night of sleep. They’re warm, but not warm to the point where you wake up drenched in sweat. The soft material feels gentle on skin, so you don’t wake up itchy.
Maintenance: It’s pretty simple to take care of these pajamas, but make sure you follow the instructions on the tag. The company recommends washing them in cold water and tumble-drying them on low. Reviewers who failed to follow the instructions lament that their PJs shrunk or developed fabric pilling.
Price: These flannel pajamas typically cost between $20 and $40. Pricing varies depending on the size and style that you choose.
Practical front pockets keep your hands warm or your cell phone close. The button-front style is ideal for breastfeeding moms or women recovering from surgery.
Some women claim the pajamas look cheap, while others praise their quality. We personally feel like they're worth the price, but they're definitely not comparable to $100 PJs.
Fit: This Angelina fleece pajama set doesn’t fit as tightly as the Leveret PJs on our list, nor are they as loose as the Del Rossa flannel jammies. They fall somewhere in between the two, making them ideal for women who want an average fit. These fleece pajamas typically fit true to size, but buy a size up if you’re worried that you’ll forget to tumble dry them on low (hello, shrinkage).
Fabric: 100% fleece polyester makes these pajamas warm and cozy. The soft exterior reminds of us Old Navy performance fleece (remember those commercials, or are we aging ourselves?), and these are the perfect PJs for chilly fall or winter nights.
Maintenance: These are machine washable, which is nice. Just make sure to dry them on a low setting if you want to retain their original shape and size.
Price: These fleece pajamas cost around $30, making them one of the cheaper pajama sets on our list, and we think the price is totally reasonable.
Available in children’s sizes as well as adult sizes, so you can match with your kiddos. Includes spacious kangaroo pockets.
Some women complain the feet are too tight. Luckily, the feet are removable, so you can take them off if they bother you.
Fit: Relive fond childhood memories in these footie pajamas that keep you cozy from head to toe-sie. Alright, alright...we’ll stop with the made-up words. But seriously, these footie pajamas are super comfy...and apparently they’re not just for lounging. Tyler Posey donned a pair of footie PJs at the MTV Movie Awards earlier this year, so now we’re wondering if we can get away with rocking our own pair at the grocery store.
Fabric: SleepytimePjs footie pajamas are made from soft, durable fleece. Fleece traps heat, so these PJs are ideal for ladies who need head-to-toe warmth.
Maintenance: These jammies are safe for the washing machine, so you can clean them in a jiffy. Just make sure to dry these fleece pajamas on low so you don’t shrink them.
Price: These pajamas range from $35 to $70. The durable fleece withstands frequent wear and tear easily, so we’re okay with the hefty price tag.
Keeps you cozy without restricting foot movement. Attached hood with drawstrings is perfect for chilly nights.
Some reviewers complain that this onesie runs large, so consider buying a smaller size than you usually get.
Fit: We like to be comfortable, so this footless onesie is one of our favorite PJs on this list. It runs big, but that just makes it easier to conceal the evidence of our late-night snack attacks. Black cuffs around the ankles and arms enhance the appearance of the onesie without cutting off circulation in your extremities, and the pullover hood lets you conveniently drown out the sounds of cranky significant others or bossy roommates.
Fabric: Like several of the other best women’s pajamas we’ve featured, this neon onesie is made of soft fleece. It’s gentle on your skin, and it helps prevents heat from escaping. The result? A cozy piece that keeps you snug and toasty all night long.
Maintenance: It’s safe to wash this onesie, but you might want to wash it alone or with similar sleepwear. A couple reviewers lament that the onesie sheds like crazy in the washing machine.
Price: We’ve got no issues with the moderate $30 price tag attached to this comfy onesie.
Includes a dress and G-string, so you don’t have to worry about finding a matching panty. Flirty design offers a fun way to add sizzle to the bedroom.
It runs a little small, but some women say the smaller size gives their breasts a nice boost.
Fit: This tantalizing teddy is sexy, but not at the expense of comfort. It’s lightweight and easy to slip on (and off), and we love how the loose belly conceals our trouble spots. The top runs small, but some women like that because it gives their chest some extra oomph.
Fabric: Don’t be scared of the product title - this sexy lingerie is made out of polyester, not polyeater. Soft, silky polyester that feels nice against your bare skin.
Maintenance: You can wash this by hand or toss it in the washing machine, but make sure to put it on the delicate cycle. Dry cleaning is also an option.
Price: Depending on the size and color you select, prices range from $8 to $30 for this affordable teddy.
An elastic waistband expands to provide a comfy fit. Lightweight, breathable material.
The pajamas run small, so order a size or two bigger than usual.
Fit: Leveret advertises these PJs as a fitted set, so expect them to hug your body snugly. If you like baggy sleepwear, order a size or two larger than you usually buy. Ribbed ankle cuffs keep the pant legs from riding up when you sit down, but some wearers may prefer a looser fit around their ankles.
Fabric: It’s hard to find pajamas that are made from 100% cotton, as many of them feature a poly/spandex blend. These striped PJs are made from nothing but cotton, and numerous reviewers rave that the material reminds them of a comfy T-shirt. Sleep.org says that cotton pajamas typically don’t irritate sensitive skin, and we agree that this is true. These don't make us itch the way wool or rayon pajamas sometimes do.
Maintenance: You can clean these jammies in the washing machine as long as you turn them inside out first and use cold water. Make sure to tumble dry them on low to minimize shrinkage.
Price: These cotton pajamas only cost around $25, which is a steal compared to other PJs on our list.
Two-piece pajama set is carefully crafted from 100% authentic silk. Available in petite, regular, and plus sizes.
Very few people have anything bad to see about this company or their pajamas. A couple people claim the PJs run big, but most reviewers disagree.
Fit: We’re happy that these silk pajamas generally fit true to size and aren’t overly baggy or tight. The company provides a size chart on its Amazon page, and you can also call or email them if you’re worried you might buy the wrong size. Reviewers rave about how friendly and helpful the workers at TexereSilk are when they contact them with questions.
Fabric: These pajamas are made well and look amazing when we put them on, but their luxuriously soft silk is the reason we adore them. These are hands-down the softest women’s pajamas we’ve ever tried. You’ll feel like royalty as you sprawl across your sheets in these sleek, smooth PJs. Heck, you can even wear them outside of the home - celebs do it all the time.
Maintenance: Expect to spend more time maintaining this silk pajama set than you spend caring for other sleepwear. The company recommends that you wash them by hand or take them to a dry cleaner, but you can try your luck with the delicate cycle on your washing machine. Avoid a tumble in the dryer - you need to lay these PJs flat to dry.
Price: Prices typically range from $100 to $150, but these high-end pajamas are worth every penny. Just whisper “It’s better to have one good pair of pajamas than 20 cheap pairs” as you key in your credit card number.
