The Advantages of Flannel Sleepwear


night gowns

  • Keeping warm – flannel is a soft and densely woven fabric that is incredibly warm and an excellent choice for the cold winter months.

    Originally made from wool, today's flannel nightgowns and intimate apparel is made of thicker flannel cotton blended fabric.

  • A variety of styles – although the most popular print is plaid, flannel nightshirts have evolved into more vibrant hues and fun patterns.

    From full length to knee length, this womens sleepwear also comes in various lengths that range from above the knee to full length. Long nightgowns with full sleeves are the most popular styles for colder climates.

  • Low-maintenancecotton flannel is easy to care for and has a reputation for ladies nightwear that is wash and wear.

    Follow the care tag, which usually recommends hand wash or the lingerie setting on the washing machine.

The Disadvantages of Flannel Sleepwear


  • No Stretch - Since flannel is a woven fabric that does not contain spandex it does not stretch.

    This may be uncomfortable if you are used to soft and stretchy lingerie and intimate apparel.

  • Seasonality - Thick and heavy flannel fabric may just be too warm and overwhelming during hot nights.

    If this fabric is too dense or warm you may want to stick to lighter fabrics such as lightweight cotton, satin or silk.

  • Not so sexy - a flannel nightie doesn't exactly have the reputation of exotic lingerie. It is more functional than come hither.

    But you can look more stylish by choosing lighter colors and nightgowns with pretty eyelet trim at the neckline and cuffs.
