When it comes to pajamas, comfort is queen. In fact, it's the jumping-off point for almost all loungewear-related decisions. "I can't wait to get home after this tough day and climb into some scratchy, uncomfortable jammies," said no one ever. So, of course, most folks dedicate an entire dresser drawer to the all-mighty pj.

Pajamas should be comfortable enough to lounge and sleep in, but attractive too, on the off-chance you run into the neighbor when letting the dog out. Though truth be told, we all have those well-loved, tattered sweats we refuse to give up. You know the ones, they're peppered with stains and now have a shoelace in place of the original waistband. They're hideous and altogether glorious, and you don't owe anyone an excuse. 

Grunge-glam sweats aside, knowing you have a drawer full of fabulous mood-soothing pjs at home will get you through the daily grind. So, without further ado, here's the best women's pajamas you can buy.

How we selected products

Pajamas, pjs, jammies — call them what you will, but the decision is very personal. You might prefer shorts, pants, a nightgown, or a sleep shirt. Or, maybe, you're 100% team satin with a steadfast love of its cool-to-the-touch qualities. The considerations for this list include elements such as fabric texture, design, and fit options.

Knowing that pajama preferences are unique to each person, we reviewed a wide range of opinion-oriented material such as customer reviews, Amazon-star ratings, YouTube influencer feedback, online reporting, and social media trends. The end result is a well-vetted list of the 20 best pajamas for everyone's personality and preference.

Whether you're looking for the perfect streetwear pjs or something elegant for an adult pajama party, we got you covered. Well, mostly covered; a few are vying for a spot in the not safe for work category!

Best overall pajamas

It seems illogical that with a name like Sleepy Jones, a brand would have enough energy to be everywhere — on all the 'best of' lists. However, the perpetually snoozy pajama brand is loved by experts at The New York Times. Even Tan France, the style guru from "Queer Eye," wears the brand's classic look.

The brand itself sprung to life when founder Andy Spade set out to emulate the style that the world's most creative creators opt for — comfort. A classic button-down shirt and pants set, the Marina style is offered in 24 different colors and patterns, ranging in size from XXS through XXL.

The Marina Pajama Set is $198 at Sleepy Jones.

Best pajama set

Some sleep scenarios require every last detail — every possible coordinated piece from pants, cami, and even a silky hair scrunchie. That's where SHEIN comes in. The online mega-retailer offers this seven-piece set in a staggering 43 different colors and patterns. The silky polyester set includes a camisole, sleep shorts, pants, button-down shirt, coordinating hair elastic, sleep mask, and matching bag.

The versatile pjs are from the fun-loving folks at Shinesty, who have an Instagram following of over 160,000. The Pajamaralls are perfect for scenarios when it's a given that you'll likely fall asleep in your clothes. Camping? Definitely. Thanksgiving? 100% yes, according to Shinesty reviewers, "Perfect for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Love the drawstring at waist and side pockets!"

Pajamaralls are $84.99 and even eligible for free returns on Amazon.

Best recycled pajamas

This certainly isn't the first time Free People has had pajamas featured in a 'best of' list. The brand's pjs regularly get love from shopping experts all over the internet. The yarn fibers used to make these satiny silhouettes are particularly special because they're comprised of repurposed plastic PET-bottles. Of course, they could have stopped there, but they went all-in with contrasting piping and bold, larger-than-life hem detail.

If you're wondering if they feel as good as they look, one reviewer sums it up. "They are so luxurious and soft, and you feel like a queen in them...Worth every penny."

But, you don't need a party invite to rock this luxurious loungewear, with fans that include celebrity Instagram followers such as Kristen Bell.

Best splurge-worthy pajamas

It might not explicitly state it in the fancy law books, but the universe has deemed the right to silk jammies unquestionable. So, feel free to use that as a jumping-off point, and splurge on some luxurious silk loungewear with added touches of brilliant rhinestone. To make the most of The Zoe Report's silk pajama advice, consider the LILYSILK Rhinestone Trimmed Silk Women Pajamas Set.

The set is "22 Momme Charmeuse Silk," and since 'momme' is a way to track the quality of silk, this is Mulberry tree silk entirely brag-worthy. One pajama client sums up the luxe-leaning set best. "Natural silk is the pinnacle of luxury in bed linen and textile sleep accessories. The touch of the fabric in the skin is incomparably soft and gentle." Can you say luxury? 

The Rhinestone Trimmed Silk Women Pajamas Set is sold at LILYSILK for $239.

Best classic monogramed pajamas

There's something so satisfying about a pair of ultra-classic monogrammed pajamas. We're not sure what sort of sorcery is at work here, but the end result is a conservative style that somehow transcends its typical boundaries, looking equally refined and flirty.
