Cotton Sleep Shirt

Updated on September 6, 2014

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.

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!

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.
