  Flannel Sleepwear Is Not Just For Winter

Most of us picture a toasty flannel nightshirt in wintery prints like plaid or snowflakes, perfect for staying warm on a cold and frosty night. The truth is, these nightshirts can work year round.

Flannel in 100% cotton will breathe and keep you comfy even in the warmer months. For spring try a pretty pastel shade, or opt for crisp and clean white flannel for a look that works any time, no matter the season.

  A Flannel Nightshirt Is Surprisingly Sexy

  • Toss the fuzzy slippers and frumpy cut nightshirt and dial up the sex appeal in your flannel pajamas. 
  • Try a shorter length, or leave a button up style undone as low as you dare. 
  • Let a lacy bra peek out from underneath. 
  • Or wear his flannel pajama top as a nightshirt for a sexy boyfriend look that is guaranteed to surprise with it’s covert sexiness.

Fabric Facts

Traditional flannel is a woven fabric that does not contain spandex, therefore it does not stretch.

  Sleepwear Doesn't Have To Be Boring

The classic button-up sleep shirt style is timeless and always looks great, but it can also be a bit bland for those women who prefer a little more style to their sleepwear.

Look for styles with ruffled hems, embroidery, scoop or v-necks, ruffled sleeves, pintucked bodices, and other decorative details for flannel nightshirts that are full of personality and are anything but boring.

You’ll look forward to slipping into your nightie when you choose a piece that’s a little prettier and more fun than a basic style.

  There's Flannel To Suit Virtually Every Style

The classic sleep shirt is a blank canvas for showing off your personal style:

  • Women who love a classic look can choose a standard button-up, collared style in a chic shade like navy or grey.
  • Those who favor a minimal, clean look should seek out simple nightshirts without fussy trims or details, like a simple scoop neck, straight cut style.
  • For the girlie girl, look for ruffles, ribbons and candy colored hues.
  • Even women who gravitate towards a sexy sleepwear look can choose from short, swingy styles in provocative shades like red or leopard print.

No matter your personal preferences, there’s a flannel nightshirt that suits your unique tastes.

Carmen's Tip

Thick and heavy flannel fabric may be too warm and overwhelming for some.  If this fabric is too dense or warm, consider lighter fabrics such as cotton, satin or even silk.

  A Sleep Shirt Works For Any Shape

Whether you’re petite, tall, plus size, curvy, thin, or any other body shape, the flannel nightshirt is a great choice for comfortable pajamas that also look good.

  • Play with varying lengths to find one that suits your height and look for details and cuts to flatter any figure. 
  • Think empire waistlines to suit a pear shape, short hemlines for petites, smocked bodices to accommodate a full bust, or a thigh high slit to show off curves for plus sizes.

There are styles to suit every shape and silhouette so anyone can slip into a flannel nightgown and look and feel their best.
