Cotton Sleep Shirt
A More Comfortable Way to Sleep
As the weather gets warmer, I find the most comfortable outfit to sleep in is a cotton sleep shirt. These nightgowns are similar to a long, oversize t-shirt. They generally have short sleeves, and fall to the knees.
These nighties are as easy to launder as a t-shirt, and come in a lot of different colors and cute prints. The cotton knit makes them comfortable and cool to wear in the summer, when the temperature gets high. The length provides plenty of modesty if your family is around.
Another benefit of these sleep shirts is the price! They are usually very affordable. I have even found them for under $10! This makes them a great choice for a garment to wear around the house, as well as for sleeping.
A Good, Basic Night Shirt for Under $10
This nightie has been popular on my lensCheap Nightgowns Under $20. Readers enjoy the thickness of the fabric, as well as the terrific price.
Choose from six different colors: black, yellow, pink, red and two shades of blue.
This sleep shirt is one size. It is advertised as fitting up to size 3X, but a number of the reviews on Amazon say it is not that large. Scroll down for some items that fit larger sizes better.
Plus Size Sleep Shirts
If you are like me, you need your clothes in a larger size! It can be even more important for us larger women to have nightwear that does not bind or pull anywhere. These gowns are probably the most comfortable thing you can sleep in. I think so anyway!
This one is a bit more elegant, with details like ruffled cuffs and hem, and shirring at the bust. It comes in sizes 1X, 2X and 3X. There are other prints available.
Nautica Sleep Shirt
I like this style and wish they made it in my size. The ash gray is my favorite color, but navy is great too!
This comes in sizes small to extra-large. Reviews mention that it runs small; so, you might want to order up a size or two, depending upon how loose you like your sleepwear to be.
Jockey Sleep Shirt
This one is also great! I have worn Jockey undies for decades, but I confess that I have never tried their sleepwear. I would love to try this one, so I am happy it comes in my size.
This cute v-neck sleep shirt comes in black or taupe. I think they both look sexy. It is shown here in plus sizes 1x to 3x. It is also available in misses sizes small to extra-large.
