Fabric First for Utmost Comfort-

Choosing the right fabric for your night dress is as crucial as choosing the right food for a healthy and fit body. Cotton and Linen for a light and relaxed sleep. These fabrics do not stick to your skin to keep your body and mind cool overnight. Silk and Satin fabrics make for some luxurious and smooth nightwear depending on the occasion you’re using them for. Knit and Flannel are the go-to fabrics for the cold wintery nights! In conclusion, whichever fabric you choose, it should be comfortable enough to provide you with a good night’s sleep.

Consider the Season-

Summers call for relaxed and cool sleepwear (cue: cotton and linen), while winter calls for warm and breathable choices of ladies night dress (cue: knit and flannel). Silk sleepwear also makes for a good choice for winters as it blocks the cold from touching the body. Also, please make sure that the night dress is layered so that the whole body is covered when wearing silk. While silk can get sticky in humid weathers, satin gives a luxurious experience without being heavy on the skin. Your nightwear should be airy in the summer and warm in the winter.

What’s the Occasion?

Your nightwear should match the occasion you’ve chosen it for. For romantic vacations and special nights, silk and satin layered night dresses make for great choices. For Pyjama parties, a cute set of matching pyjamas and tops or some co-ord sets would make for excellent choices. A lazy day at home calls for a midi or a maxi depending on your style. Vacations are perfect for a tank top and shorts combination.

Style Matters-

Your style statement shouldn’t take a backseat when choosing the perfect night dress. There’s a sea of options to choose from and the kind of clothing you prefer should make for an ideal choice. A long cotton nightgown would be the perfect end to a tiring day. For exciting nights, choosing babydolls or satin nighties would elevate the mood. For relaxed vacations, cute tops and shorts would make for an accurate choice. Moreover, the right kind of nightwear is light and soothing, not heavy and bold. Light and mild colours are calming and relaxing.

Avoid Embellishments on Night dress-

Your nightwear shouldn’t have any detailing and embellishments like big and unnecessary buttons or laces etc. Such embellishments while may not disturb you while you’re sitting, but for an unruffled sleep, such adornments are unnecessary and rather disturbing. Always choose nightwear with minimal detailing that blends with the fabric seamlessly. Slip-on nightwear should be your most preferred choice.
