Girls Sleepwear is without doubt, one of the hardest working, functional purchases that we make for our little ones.
Whether it’s popular Disney princess nightgowns, pajama sets in their favorite movie characters or bathrobes with unicorns, horses, or other fun details, investing in sleep wear they look forward to putting on at bed time makes for a happy home.
Below, we take a closer look at popular style and fabric fundamentals.
A time-honored favorite, long and short nightgowns for girls are the go-to style for all ages.
Also known as a nighty or gown, this popular one-piece style resembles a large over-size shirt that covers the knees and is a more relaxed alternate to onesies and pyjamas.
Night gowns come in simple pull-over styles and are super easy to put on.
If adorability were a fashion contest, pyjamas—whether they’re matching tops and pant sets or mix and match prints and patterned separates – would win the race every time.
Pjs come in classic, trendy and holiday styles to suit the seasons and every need, and are a wonderful pick for everything from sleeping and lounging to watching Saturday morning cartoons.
The king of natural fabrics, cotton is one of the best options when it comes to breathable fabrics that are eco-friendly and comfy cozy.
Available in a wide range of choices – from organic cotton to polyester combinations, it is soft on the skin and lends itself to virtually every sleep wear style.
Flannel is a synthetic fabric and is well known for its colorful plaid and tartan patterns. It is a popular choice for the fall and winter months.
While cotton flannel is a thicker fabric that is designed for warmth and has a soft, cozy feel, it can be prone to shrinkage and pilling.
With a reputation as wrinkle and stain resistant, polyester is a synthetic material that is widely used in girls sleepwear.
Available in a wide variety of fun prints, patterns and colors, it is quite durable and holds up well with minimal shrinkage.
Do – Dress your child for the season – Cotton pajamas, satin and charmeuse are ideal for summer and footsies, nightgowns and two-piece pajama sets are perfect for winter. Dress your child appropriately, while keeping the room temperature in mind.
Do – Make it fun – Kids love playing in their new sleepwear and may want to wear it all day. Make it fun for your daughter by choosing accessories that match the sleep wear theme, such as a great robe in the same color or slippers.
Animal themes are also very popular – buy a stuffed animal to go with nightgown or pajamas, or a matching nightie for her favorite doll.
