Different types of Pajamas
A new trend, and one that we’re glad to welcome, is the prevalence of general awareness. Things like focusing on wellbeing – mental and physical, getting enough rest and sleep, practicing meditation, being more conscious and aware of the things we eat and drink, our level of physical activity or exercise that we insert through busy schedules in the day…all of these help to get a better understanding of ourselves, and the kind of life we want to be living.
Research on these topics in the recent past has led to insights on minimum sleeping hours, best sleeping positions, and things to be avoided one hour prior to sleep, things related to the ambience like the various sounds, aromas and lighting settings for your bedroom, and so on. However, it is practically impossible to follow everything by the book.
Can you imagine practicing ‘10 things that I am grateful for today’ right after having a row with your spouse. Or taking a warm bath just before bed time when it is 40 degrees in a humid city outside? As beautiful as it sounds on paper, in practicality, it can get impossibly tiring and frustrating at times.
But we can help you out with type of sleepwear that can guarantee yours sweet dreams and comfort in and out of your homes – PAJAMAS or PJs for men, women and kids alike.
Apart from sleep, there are different types of pajamas for your comfort, convenience, ease and fashion for working at home to step out and run some errands in your area, or just chill with some close friends casually. Fun fact – The wearing of pajamas is attributed to Indians. The British discovered this different type of sleepwear and acknowledged its benefits. However, part of the functionality of these outfits lie in choosing the right fabric and type of pajamas for yourself. Types of PJs can be listed by fabrics and styles. There are some traditional fabrics which the industry swears by as they have done for decades now, and then are new fabrics and styles introduced to us with the GenZ.
Speaking of some of these:
COTTON – Plain cotton pajamas is like the bread and butter sandwich. Plain coloured pajamas with prints are just like adding an egg to the sandwich! You can’t go wrong even if you tried to. Cotton is chosen for its porosity, softness, light weight and is a preferred type of pajama for bedtime rituals. Cotton habilitates natural air circulation and does not irritate the skin. It is best for summer.
LINEN – Linen pajamas are light weight and popular amongst types of sleepwear. Linen too has a soft texture like cotton but is more durable and fast drying in comparison to cotton. Linen can have a crinkly look but it is absolutely alright when you are thinking of pajamas. It also helps you stay cool.
SILK – Silk pajamas feel magical to touch and bring a sense of luxurious cosiness to the outfit. Silk is a natural fabric which keeps you warm while being light weight. Silk is good for your skin especially for those with super sensitive skin that is prone to break into allergic reactions forming rashes and irritability due to the fabric itself.
Also chosen for its breathability and feathery feel, silk, however, also needs a bit of maintenance like hand washing or dry cleaning and can be a bit exorbitant on the wallet.
SATIN – Satin as a vegan fabric is a good alternative for silk. It is warm, light weight and light on the pocket as well! Satin is preferred as a types of pjs for its shine, simplicity and appearance.
FLANNEL – Best for colder nights as this wool like material provides you with warmth. It is slightly heavier than cotton but serves its purpose. However, it might be itchy on skin and should be bought only if you are sure of the material.
