Ok, let’s get personal. We’re among friends.
What do you wear to bed in summer?
Are you a nightie kind of girl? Shorts and tee? Sexy slip? Or, is clothing optional?
Oops, there I go again. I just want TOO MUCH INFORMATION.
This post has been prompted by reader Bec, who asked:
Where could I get summer pjs from? Ones that last? Well at least a season!
Bec, I’m so glad you asked.
I’m a big, big believer in creating optimum conditions for the best sleep possible. I LOVE sleeping.
If you follow along on Instagram and Facebook with my Sunday #cleansheetday posts, you’ll know that my enjoyment of a good slumber starts with fabulous bed linen.
There is absolutely nothing like slipping under fresh sheets. Nothing.
But combine that with fabulous sleepwear then you have got a match made in sleepy heaven.
Summer sleepwear is generally not about being cosy but being comfortable and cool. Personally, I’ll minimise what I’m wearing to bed in the hope I’ll still be able to snuggle a little under the doona.
Opt for quality fabrics that wear and wash well if you want the sleepwear to last beyond the season.
In summer, I also change out what I wear to bed every two-three days because, you know … excessive perspiration.
Showering before bed also helps extend the longevity of your sleepwear. On many nights in Queensland, this isn’t optional, it’s mandatory to cool down.
Personally, I switch around my style of summer sleepwear as much as I switch around my wardrobe style.
Some nights it’s about a cool, comfortable t-shirt and shorts set; others it’s all about the slinky nightie.
To give you a snapshot of what’s available to buy right now, I’ve gone on the hunt for you and found my pick of summer sleepwear across a variety of styles.
