There’s something so satisfying about putting on a comfortable pair of pajamas at the end of a long day–or, you know, staying in them all day while working from home. While we shelter in place, sometimes even the smallest effort to dress up at home can make all the difference.

What to Look For in Pajamas
Cotton, silk, or synthetic? The material you choose in your pajamas will determine how well they work for you. Coordinate your pajama fabric choices with the season, opting for more breathable and cool materials in cooler months, and sturdier, warmer fabrics in colder times. Even within single fabrics, such as silk, there may be significant differences.
Is longevity a priority for you, or do you prefer trendy styles and patterns? How long you want your pajamas to last should be a factor in what you decide to pay for them. As with anything in life, if it's too good a deal to be true, it probably is.
if you're purchasing pajamas online, it's important to check the sizing chart. That will help ensure your new pj's won't be heading right back into a return envelope. Beyond that, know what you're looking for when it comes to silhouette so that you're not disappointed when a set looks as comfortable as it feels.
From fabric bleeding to hand washing, know what you're getting into before you get into your new pajamas. If a pair is hand wash or dry clean only, be prepared to spend that time or money on their upkeep.
How do I choose the right pajamas?
Choose a fabric that's appropriate for the season you're in so that your pajamas don't make you too hot or too hold. Additionally, select a fit will stay comfortable for all the hours you'll be wearing them—though there's nothing wrong with having extra pj's on hand purely for their cuteness.
Which fabric is best for pajamas?
Silk is always a top choice for pajamas due to its ability to thermoregulate. Linen is lightweight, but durable enough to last a long time. And of course, cotton breaths well, making it too a top choice.
How often should you change your pajamas?
Where once we may have only worn pajamas to sleep in, current culture dictates that these guys get a lot of day time wear. It depends what you're doing in your pajamas, really. If you're wearing them as workout clothes, they should be in the wash after one session, and if you aren't showering often, you'll want to change them more frequently too. Otherwise, every few days or a max of one week is considered fine.
