How to Find the Best Women’s Summer Sleepwear for Your Lifestyle

Every summer, women everywhere face the same dilemma: can I wear my PJs outside? The answer is always no.

While every day is a casual Friday for most of us, there are still times when slippers just won’t cut it. It’s time to do your sleep shirt and sleepwear shopping for the season. Summer PJs are lighter and airy, often made from cotton or silk. They’re a great alternative to jeans if you’re headed out to the movies or have summer picnics planned. Remember, not every outfit is meant for bed – or the street. To that end, we’ve rounded up nine tips for shopping summer pajamas for women, so your next trip to the store will be more successful than your last.


The number one thing to consider when shopping today is what will be most comfortable for you. Look for lightweight features made from natural fabrics like cotton and linen. Breathable materials are those that will keep you comfy, cool and dry through the night and will allow you to stay out in the sun all day long without having to worry about being too hot to go back home. If you’re going to be outside, in the sun, during a humid evening, then you’ll want to make sure that your sleepwear or sleep shirt keeps you cool and dry so that you can still be comfortable.


Before you buy plain black pajama pants/shorts, look at the quality. Is it ready to fall apart? This is where I occasionally get into trouble as some styles are not made for multiple wearings or washing. Some Marie Claire beautiful silk styles do not hold up or have severe issues with fraying after a few washes. Look at seams and zippers, fabric and trim; if it looks and feels flimsy, it can be a sign that it won’t last through a few washes.

Be Honest with Yourself: 

Honesty is essential when considering what pajama sets will make you feel your best. Sometimes the most popular sleepwear trends aren’t the best for your body type. Take a good look in the mirror and decide what line and style of sleepwear will work with your curves to compliment and accentuate your best assets. Choose anything from the collection of playful designs, such as their pink flamingo tank top, floral print shorts with drawstring waist, or even their cat polka-dots camisole and pant set.

Important: All women are beautiful. Don’t let societal pressures of “what’s in” this season be the defining factor for what makes you feel gorgeous. Instead, look for Marie Claire pajamas from any online store that gives you confidence in your skin and makes you feel good about who you are.

Try Something New: 

Summertime is all about relaxing and getting out of your comfort zone. Break out of your cotton and linen PJs and try something new. Cotton sets are great for the summer, but if you’re looking for something a little lighter, try a bamboo set. These sets are soft and lightweight and will keep you cool at night without making you sweat. If you’re feeling adventurous, check out Lunya’s lace sets. They’re luxurious, breathable, and a great gift for a hot summer night. Their lounge pants, shorts, cami, and linen tops were designed for women who move between gym and brunch, board meeting and barre, office and happy hour.

Consider the Season

In the warmer months, most of us are looking for ways to cool down, so we tend to gravitate toward lightweight fabrics and pieces(airy shorts, cami, fashion pants, summer pajamas, etc.) that will help us stay calm. When temperatures rise during the day but are cooler at night, it might be more comfortable to wear summer pajamas made of cotton, linen or other natural fibers to help regulate your body temperature (and keep you warmer as the temperature drops). But if the temperatures dip at night, these same materials can make us feel chilly in our sleep.

Avoid Crazy Cuts & Coloring

We’ve all heard women love wearing comfy and cute clothes, not sexy and revealing. Summer is all about dressing down, so stay away from super low v-necks; they will only distract your style-conscious mother, sister, or friend. When shopping for women’s sleepwear/nightshirt, “scoop neckline, colorful and strapless” are three words you’ll want to appear next to in your search results.

Bras should also be kept to a minimum when shopping for women’s pajama sets. Stylish tank tops, spaghetti strap shirts and sleeping camis are the perfect night-time attire because they are usually made of a paper-thin fabric that clings to your skin (especially if you’re running a little hot) shows off your shape. Also, don’t worry if the top is cut too low; there’s always a tank top to wear over it. If a tank top is too short for your liking, lengthen it with a pair of luxe leggings.


Shopping for summer pajamas for women online can make it easy to become overwhelmed by the price. Don’t let the number of price filters get you off track. Instead, use the price filter to narrow down your search. If you are looking for pajamas in a specific price range, then use that filter to help find which ones fit your budget. If you are not looking for anything specific and want to browse, start from the home page and dig in. If you are shopping today, Lunya has deep discounts and offers.

Don’t wait for the overnight shipping option.

Many women’s sleepwear and beauty companies offer same day delivery on your cami items with no minimum purchase required. Additionally, some of these companies offer free shipping on orders over a certain amount. This means you can have your order in your hands within hours of placing it. If you’re wondering how to find the best shipping option to fulfill your promise of same day delivery, keep these tips in mind:

  • What’s the temperature?
  • What’s the size of your pajama set order?
  • Do they have a shipping pickup?
  • Are you filling an order in-person or online?
  • What’s the shipping delivery time frame?
  • Is there a minimum order requirement?

These are just a few examples of what goes into same day shipping when shopping for summer pajamas.

Wrapping up

What is the best women’s sleepwear for your lifestyle? It all comes down to what you value. It depends on what you prioritize in your life. If you live a busy lifestyle and don’t have time to select your outfit for the next day carefully, then comfort is crucial, and you should go for something like a loose cotton or linen nightgown that won’t make you sweat during the night. However, if you prioritize beauty and look good even when lounging around the house, you might want to go for something a little more fitted and stylish, like a silk chemise.
