Our Favorite Pajamas for Every Type of Sleeper

The right pair of pjs can help you survive—and sleep through—the warm weather season. Not only are they great to wear around the house on super hot summer days, a good pair of pajamas will allow you to sleep comfortably all season long.  

And since Brooklinen is all about getting better sleep, we thought it would fun to round up a few of our favorite pj sets for all different types of sleepers. Just in time for the warm weather season, here are five styles of jammies we swear by for the spring, summer, and early fall.

1. Classic Sleeper

If you’re what we like to call a “classic sleeper”—aka someone who prefers to sleep fully clothed, but in lightweight garments—then we’ve got the jammies for you. The Gisele Basics PJ Set from Eberjey is composed of a super soft modal and spandex jersey blend, and comes in a variety of colors and lengths, so you can sleep soundly (and stylishly) all season long.

2. Snug Sleeper

For those sleepers who prefer to keep warm and cushy throughout the season, nothing beats a good-looking pair of plush pjs. Best for those who tend to get chilly at night, a pair of lightweight sateen pajama pants or charmeuse shorts from Sleepy Jones will help you stay toasty—but not stuffy—while you sleep.

 3. Au Natural Sleeper

For those of you who prefer to sleep as au natural as possible, there’s nothing quite like a satiny chemise to snuggle up in. Perfect for sleepers who want to feel snug in their sleepwear while wearing next to nothing, silk is thermo-regulating, so it adjusts to your body’s unique temperature to keep you both warm and cool while you sleep.

4. In-between Sleeper

If you find yourself alternating between feeling hot and cold while you sleep, then we’ve got the pajamas for you. When paired with a crisp set of breathable sheets, this silky satin short set at Natori will keep you cozy and cool all summer long.

 5. Easy Breezy Sleeper

By far the most breathable type of pajamas out there, cotton pjs are naturally lightweight and soft to the touch, allowing for air circulation without irritating the skin. Best reserved for those sleepers that find they get a little too toasty while they sleep, cotton jammies—like this vintage-style set from J.Crew—will keep you cool and comfy throughout the night.

A good pair of pjs can help you get through the warm weather months in style. So before you freak out and splurge on yet another air conditioner, consider treating yourself to nice pair of breathable jammies to keep you comfy and cool instead.
