What do you wear when sleeping? night dress? Oversized tees? nothing at all? Lately, it seems like every woman I know has been talking about nightgowns…
My friend Lucy B laughed. “I’m passionate about this topic, the nightgowns have a flowing material, so nothing presses against my skin while I sleep. It’s more romantic than other pajamas. And if you need to go out to get the newspaper, they dress up. What can’t a dress do? sleep? “
I haven’t worn one since third grade, but readers of Cup of Jo insist that nightgowns are the most comfortable. For example, Lauren has struggled with pajama sets: “She developed a largely impractical aesthetic for men with a vintage smoking robe that I thought was what one would wear to solve train murders.” But sleepwear that actually worked? Turns out the only thing I can sleep in is a spaghetti strap plaid flannel nightgown y crew Stopped selling around 2000 (please bring them back by J.CREW). “
As for brands these days? I can still hear the name Eileen West. “Their nightgowns are great,” says reader Claire. “Years ago, I was walking around a department store with a gift card from my mom. I couldn’t find anything I liked, so I grabbed an Eileen West cotton nightgown off the shelf, wondering if I’d wear it. It turns out I’m wearing it. All the time. Cotton fabric, light as a cloud, and pretty. Grandma melon! Nightgowns to win! “
