Pajamas: Trendy and CUTE

Updated on October 31, 2013

Pajamas: Make Yourself Cozy At Home

Doesn't the name Pajama or Pyjama sound unusual to you? Ever wonder where it comes from? The name probably comes from an Indian word paejamah, which means "leg clothing" pae=leg and jamah=clothing.

According to the Enclyclopedia Britannica: Pyjamas were introduced in England as lounging attire in the 17th century. Soon they went out of fashion. About 1870 they reappeared in the Western world as sleeping attire for men, after returning British colonials brought pyjamas back from Southern Asia.

Americans tend to spell them Pajama (or even PJs) while Brits tend to use Pyjama or the older style Pyjamma.

Are Pajamas sexy? That depends. Pajamas can give a look of elegant comfort. Silk Pajamas for example, can look very sexy and fashionable.

But Pajamas are making a huge comeback. Sales of women's Pajamas are growing rapidly reaching $3-4 Billion annually. Sales of men's pajamas are actually growing faster, but this is because they are much smaller. Out of every 10 pair of adult pajamas sold, 9 pair are sold to women.

An even more surprising new fashion trend is the rapid growth of Footed Pajamas for teens and adults.

Why are pajamas so popular lately? Probably due to several reasons. There is a trend to comfort in clothing. People come home from work and want to watch TV in comfort. Funky and cool Pajamas are trendy. One reason that Pajamas are seen as so trendy is that Pajamas have been featured on popular TV shows from Friends, to Ally McBeal, Will and Grace and Grey's Anatomy. While men are comfortable hanging out in old gym shorts and a ripped T-Shirt, many women want to be both comfortable and trendy at home. Who knows who might drop by. Pajamas are so trendy these days that people are beginning to wear Pajamas to the mall or even to campus. Some people are wearing pajamas from morning to night. But Hugh Hefner has been wearing his jammies all day long for years.

PSSST; here's a tip: Oprah's Favorite Pajamas are Karen Neuburger Pajamas (see below).
