While we’re all for sleeping in the nude, we know that there are many people who just prefer to have a layer between their bod and sheets. So we're here to break down which material feels the best against your skin and will keep you comfortable all night long. Besides, even if you’re a bedtime nudie, you can’t deny that lightweight pajamas make amazing loungewear. Also, makes for a less awkward encounter with the pizza guy at the door.
Going to bed in that cute onesie always starts off as a good idea, because it’s just so comfy. But then it’s 3 a.m. and you realize you woke up in a chamber of doom. You end up tossing and turning, searching desperately for the cool side of your pillow only to realize that there are no cool sides. And now that dream about Jason Momoa is out the window.
To keep cool all night long you have to choose the right fabric. Here are some lightweight materials will help you sleep comfortably:
You can’t go wrong with cotton. It’s a great material choice for your bedding, and it’s just as great for your bod. It’s a natural fiber, that’s breathable and lightweight. Grab some lightweight cotton undies and a tee, a pajama set, or a nightgown if you’re into that.
If you’re about that bougie life, silk is another lightweight natural (but expensive) option. It’s breathable and feels luxurious against your skin. Is it worth it? Probs. *cue Missy Elliot*
Next up, we’ve got our favorite fabric – linens! This incredibly light, durable fabric is not only an awesome choice for your bedding, but it’s also great as PJs. But, just like everything else in this world, great things come with an above average price tag. Remember, quality is important.
One manmade material that we like is rayon. It’s just as cooling as the other fabrics mentioned above, except it won’t empty out your wallet. It’s created out of recycled wood pulp, so it’s super affordable.
Speaking of manmade materials – be sure to stay clear of polyester PJs. Unless you enjoy being trapped in sweat. It’s a synthetic fiber and does not absorb water, which means it traps moisture and heat.
Rest easy, (and sweat free) friends!
