It looks like Summer has definitely arrived, and and we are already enjoying the warmer weather and, thank god, some sunshine. We are all out and about in lighter clothes catching some rays in Ireland and hoping that we are past the peak of the pesky Covid pandemic. But just as the days are getting warmer, so too are the nights. Sultry and warm, sometimes we end up kicking off the blankets or duvets, or change our winter duvet for our summer lighter one.Changing our nightwear can help too with the sweaty warm nights ( ahem and night sweats ). No need for the long sleeve, fleecy pyjamas and nightdresses anymore, it’s time to lighten up and try some gorgeous Satin or Cotton nightwear.
After so much time spent mostly at home the last two years because of Covid, it is of little surprise that we had been mostly wearing our Pyjamas, Loungewear and dressing gowns instead of our regular clothing. We wanted comfort and that’s what we got from our warm, cuddly nightwear.Yet, as things start to get back to the way they were, and the weather starts to improve, its time to get the nice stuff out. The light summer cottons and beautiful print satin Nighties and PJ’S. A lighter dressing gown is a good idea too, as the fleecy winter ones seem to sticky on the warm mornings.
There are plenty of brands to choose from when it comes to Nightwear and lots of styles too. Short leg or long leg pyjama, satin, Cotton, Modal (Modal is generally considered a more eco-friendly alternative to cotton and is super soft).Pyjamas with button front or pull over styles with elasticated and tie string waist. Nightdresses in cotton tend to be our best seller.They come in several different lengths and styles, some strappy, sleeveless, short and long sleeved. Some nightdresses with buttons and some with collars, round neck, v neck and full button through nighties. Cool in summer, cotton is the nation’s favourite material when it comes to nightwear and allows for easy free movement so it is great for hospital visits or nursing home stay.
Nightwear and Sleepwear options
The brands that are instantly recognisable, and are really well priced, are Marlon and Slenderella (for all your cotton nightwear ) and the ever fashionable Indigo Sky nightwear collection, which alway has something funky and satin to offer. You can buy a whole collection of the one style, a Nightdress (strappy or short sleeve), Pyjama (long leg or short) with a matching Dressing Gown. The collection makes a wonderful gift for a really good girlfriend or partner, but its always great to bring on you summer sun holiday, taking up little or no room in the suitcase.You will look fab swanning around on a Spanish balcony in your matching Nightwear set sipping coffee.
When it comes to choosing your summer sleepwear or nightwear, opt for breathable and moisture-wicking fabrics. Cotton is one and bamboo and try modal as well. Its lovely on the skin is another material that is fast becoming popular. The last thing you want is sweaty nights, so go for an option that will keep you cool but comfortable as you catch some much needed z’s.Other material favourites in nightwear are silk or Satin. Satin nightwear is a little more on the affordable side than silk nightwear and there are endless styles to choose from. Soft and luxurious to the touch, a nice pair of good quality satin Pyjamas will probably pass the doorbell test (as in you wont mind been seen in them). Depending on your preferences, you can opt for basic colours or crazy prints.Satin Chemises and Satin nightdress are the same, well apart from the fact that you might want to throw on a matching Satin Night Robe or Satin Dressing Gown before answering the door.
