Sleep is, without a doubt, one of the most important processes that the human body needs to survive. But getting a good night’s sleep is sometimes difficult. Sometimes it’s your pillow, and other times it’s your mattress, but have you ever considered that the problem could be your pajamas?
That’s right, studies show that the fabric you wear to bed may actually affect how you sleep. So if you’re looking to get a good night’s sleep, here are the four best materials to wear to bed.
Finding cotton pajamas for adults isn’t terribly difficult, and for good reason. Cotton is is lightweight and soft to the touch, breathable, and doesn?t tend to irritate the skin, which is great for childrens pajamas. In addition, it’s a good fabric to wear on warmer nights, as it doesn’t hold heat well. However, if you tend to sweat at night, cotton may not be the best choice, as it doesn’t wick away moisture.
You’re more likely to find silk adult pajamas than you are childrens footed pajamas. This fabric is an excellent thermoregulator; it can keep you warm when you’re cold and cool when you’re hot. However, quality silk is pricey and may require dry-cleaning. If you have the budget, go for it.
Flannel is the perfect fabric for cooler months, as it does an excellent job retaining heat. The material is comfortable and entirely breathable, so it can help you stay toasty without overheating. It may generate some static in the dryer, but you’ll be sleeping like a rock during the winter with these pajamas.
It may seem like a strange thing for pajamas for adults to be made out of, but bamboo fabric is soft and silky to the touch. It’s a great moisture-wicking material, which means you’ll be at a comfy temperature all night long. Not only that, bamboo is naturally hypoallergenic and rumored to have antibacterial qualities.
Next time you hop into bed and have trouble sleeping, consider changing the type of pajamas you wear to bed. They could just mean the difference between a good night’s sleep and a bad one.
