Sleep is very precious to all of us and I’m sure most of us get cranky if someone disturbs us while sleeping. High chances some punches are on the way. Well, we may or may not be able to completely deal with people who disturb us but we can surely do something about the things that can help us sleep better and by things, I mean our nightdress. A good nightdress will give you the comfort of good sleep and why deny yourself the pleasure of that? So here are 7 easy steps to help you choose your comfy night dress for a good sleep.
As you must have heard and experienced many times, it all boils down to how well something you wear fits you, and so, I’ll be starting with that first. You don’t want to wear something too tight which will end up leaving traces on your body when you wake up, rather you should pick a dress that is just rightly loose on your body. Your pj’s can’t be as skinny as your jeans and your sleep dress can’t be as fitted as your bodycon dresses. Right?
After the fit, let’s talk about movement. Yes, not everyone sleeps in one position for the whole night, what we don’t see is a circus that goes on at night that makes us move from the middle of the bed at night to the foot of the bed by morning [just kidding, happens though]. You need freedom of movement when you sleep for comfort so pick a nightdress that helps you move comfortably.
You may not know this but colours play a very important role in the quality of your sleep. Have you ever observed that it is easier to be relaxed when you are around cool colours like light blue, white, green etc. these colours help calm your mind so see that your sleepwear has a cool colour that can give you a calm vibe. While lighter colours work good for summers, darker shades like black, navy and maroon would make you feel cosier during chilly winter nights.

Now let’s talk about what your dress is made of, the fabric of your dress. You need a breathable and free fabric that can allow easy flow of air because your body kind of detox itself at night and you need to give it room to do that with comfort. Go for a soft material that can be soft to the skin like cotton or silk so your skin doesn’t feel irritated and prevents rashes.
Now, what you wear dependants highly on when you wear it. Your night dresses keep changing according to the seasons. In the hot summers, your body needs to cool down and needs to expel body heat so a soft breathable material like cotton is very helpful. But, during the winters you need lesser airflow and more body heat conservation, so, a layered nightdress will do well, something made of a thick woven material like wool.
- For period days
You cannot ignore these ladies, periods are a time where you may get really uncomfortable in your sleep and you may have to move around a lot. You need a very spacy and free nightdress because you never know what posture you might end up sleeping in.
- Your schedule
A nightdress is also about how much patience you have to put it on. If you have a hectic schedule and if you just come home to fall on your bed and sleep, chances are you won’t be willing to spend time to change into a properly buttoned nightdress or a 3 piece layered one. So, go for a dress that you can easily slip into and comfortably go to sleep and if you are a person that takes time to get to go to sleep, then, by all means, go for a dress that you fancy.
Don’t steal the comfort of sleep from yourself because of the wrong choice of clothes. Take time so you can have a good sleep that can energize you for the whole day. Explore various websites online that provide you with a huge range of nightdresses to choose from. You can check out Clovia for affordable styles or H&M for cute little button down sets while M&S is great for luxurious satin sets.
