Looking for a cozy pair of pajamas to gift mom (or better yet, buy for yourself)? These comfy pajamas for moms and women pair best with a good book, a new Netflix show, a glass of a wine and of course, a good night’s sleep. From lightweight and short to flannel and long styles, these pajamas for moms are both comfortable and stylish.
1. Dreamy Cotton Pajama Set in Stripe
These striped cotton pajamas from J.Crew fit comfortably and look good, too! And the stretch in the cotton makes them extra cozy and soft. The pants have an elastic waistband with a drawstring, and the top has long sleeves. They’re available in navy or gray stripes, and in regular and petite sizes.
2. PajamaGram Pajama Set for Women – Cotton Jersey Women’s Pajamas
PajamaGram’s PJs for mom are made of cotton jersey so they get top marks for coziness, durability, and comfort. The full-length pants have an elastic, drawstring waist, and the button-front top has a chest pocket where you can store a sleep mask or tissues. These pajamas also have an attractive, notched collar and piping on the trim. They get top marks for being lightweight, but also cozy and eminently breathable—you’ll be warm, but not too hot!
A big bonus is that they come in many different colors, and in solids as well as polka and pin (or smaller) dots. We particularly love the solid colors that have white or another contrasting color on the piping, making for a classic, clean look.
3. Women’s Silk Satin Pajamas Set – Button Down Sleepwear Loungewear
These inexpensive long satin pajamas for mom are lightweight and comfortable with a drawstring waist and a silky luxurious feel. They feature covered buttons and piping around the collar and wrists, and you can choose from many different colors, including a stunning purple, green, and royal blue. Treat yourself to a pair, or buy one for a girlfriend, sister, wife, or any other important person in your life.
4. Latuza Women’s V-Neck Sleepwear – Short Sleeves Top with Pants Pajama Set
Whether you’re experiencing hot flashes or simply want sleep and loungewear you can luxuriate in, Latuza has the perfect pajamas for you. Made from 95 percent bamboo viscose (so smooth and soft) and 5 percent spandex, they’re environmentally friendly, breathable, adjust to your body temperature, and wick away moisture.
The short-sleeve top has an attractive satin trim around the V-neck and there’s also a satin trim around the hem of the pants. The pants are long, with an elastic waist. And you can choose from a variety of different colors—with bold ones like eggplant and wine red, and softer, more muted pastel colors in pink, purple and green. Some have contrasting color for the trim, while others have trim that matches the color.
5. CYZ Women’s Cotton Super Soft Flannel Plaid Pajama/Lounge Pants
Part of the allure of these pajama bottoms are undoubtedly the price. But they’re far more than affordable. These flannel pajama bottoms are not too thick and not too thin; in other words, they’re just right! These pajamas for moms and women come in a range of plaids in different colors, as well as nautical and forest holiday designs. The soft material and drawstring waist provide extra comfort. Pair these with your coziest nighttime T-shirt and settle in for the night.
6. Sleepyheads Women’s Knit Long Sleeve Henley and Pant Pajama Set
We like these women’s pajamas because they can easily pass for loungewear. These Sleepyheads come with a jogger-style pant that has a three-quarter-inch elastic waistband with twill drawstrings and ribbed knit cuffs. The V-neck top has four buttons at the top and the same ribbed knit cuffs at the wrists.
They’re available in a range of patterns and colors. (We have a particular fondness for the grey ones with large white dots, but there are other fun choices, like foxes, unicorns, arrows and stripes.)
7. Ekouaer Sleepwear Women’s Chemise Nightgown Full Slip Lace Lounge Dress
This nightgown is for the mom who wants her nightwear both sexy and comfortable. The Ekouaer chemise nightgown is a lacy full slip with adjustable spaghetti straps and flattering floral lace around its V-neckline and empire waist.
This sleepwear is made out of a slinky cotton material so it’s comfortable and feels soft. The nightgown comes in a range of sizes and more than 10 beautiful colors, mostly solid but also dots, leopard and plaid.
This women’s pajama option is perfect for date nights or simply having a special night at home, and it’s affordable. Note that handwashing is required.
8. Gilligan & O’Malley Women’s Shorts Pajama Set
These pretty Gilligan & O’Malley pajamas are short, comfy, and flattering. They’re made of 95 percent modal fabric, a really soft semi-synthetic fiber made from hardwood trees; 5 percent spandex; and a drawstring waist for added comfort. The effect? A thin, loose-fitting pajama set with attractive touches like lace around the hem of the shorts, and a V-neck with thin straps on the tank top. Choose from three muted solids—misty blue, pink or grey.
9. Ekouaer Pajamas Set Long Sleeve Sleepwear
These super-cozy and soft pajamas for mom don’t wrinkle and are designed for serious comfort. They are made from 95 percent viscose and 5 percent elastane. The chiffon drawstring elastic waist on the pants provides added comfort, while the button-down top with chest pocket and notch collar makes these attractive bedtime wear! There’s a great variety of colors and the option of the same or contrasting color on the trim.
