- there's something to be said about satin - the elegant way it flows and shimmers every time you move - that verges on magical.
One of the best things about satin pajamas?
Long or short, they're timelessly elegant and cozily comfortable. Ever popular, they're also suitably stylish for virtually every occasion and silhouette - and they look great on curves.
From quiet moments lounging at the end of the day to enjoying Sunday champagne cocktails and French toast on your dream vacation - satin pjs mean you're effortlessly au courant no matter what your pleasure.
In this guide, we'll share how to get it right and enjoy the luxury - from styles and colors to details and beyond.
Got killer cleavage? Legs for days? Everyone has one part of their bodies that stands out, so identify what your strengths are and don’t be afraid to show them off.
Choose a satin sleepwear style that highlights your best features, like a:
Curvy women often feel like they should cover up or hide their bodies, so they turn to dark colors like black or navy, or bland neutrals.
While black is a timeless classic and slimming, there’s no need to limit yourself to hiding behind dark colors.
Show off your curves in satin pyjamas in vibrant jewel tones, pretty pastels, or any color in the rainbow that makes you smile.
Not all satin is created equal, and when it comes to flattering a curvy woman’s body there are a few tricks to looking your best.
Avoid bias cut and high sheen satin pajamas, which tend to highlight imperfections.
Instead, look for softer stretch satin blends which drape beautifully over your shape and feel cosier and far more comfortable.
Satin pyjamas, nightgowns, chemises and sleepwear are mostly all cut on the bias and may feel a little snug. Don't be afraid to opt for a slightly larger size, since satin tends to shrink after washing.
There’s a world of satin pyjamas that exists beyond the traditional basic pants and button front top sets.
Show off long legs in satin boxer shorts, choose a draped cowl neck top instead of a traditional pajama shirt, or choose a more feminine blouse style top if you prefer a more ladylike style. Have fun and add to your pj repertoire with different styles.
Buttoning your pajama shirt all the way up to the collar isn’t particularly flattering for curvy women, especially those who are well endowed with a larger bust.
Showing a bit of cleavage or a beautiful complexion helps to add length to your frame and is far more flattering than covering everything up
Too much fabric or coverage makes you look wider. When wearing a button front satin pajama shirt make sure to keep the top few buttons undone, and even more if you dare to bare.

Printed satin pajamas are a curvy girls dream come true. You get all of the silky sleekness of satin, while the printed fabric keeps the eye focused on the design and away from any problem areas. Try anything from:
A pretty, silky ladies robe or wrap is a great way to add a little extra coverage to your satin pjs. It’s also a great way to show off an hourglass shape when you belt it and cinch in your waist.
Sometimes your silhouette can get lost in pajamas that are loose or floppy, so a belted robe or wrap is a great way to emphasize your waistline and show off your figure.
If you feel like a full pj set of pants and a matching shirt is too overwhelming on your curvy frame, consider breaking up your ensemble for a more figure flattering version of satin pajamas. Try the pants with a pretty camisole, or pair a satin button front pajama shirt with lace boyshorts or tap pants.
Regardless of your size or body type, always treat yourself to pajamas that have a special quality to them. Whether it’s:
picking pjs with extraordinary details will make you love slipping them on.
The key element that makes any woman, petite, curvy, or medium, look amazing in satin pyjamas or any type of lingerie, is confidence. And, the best way to enhance confidence is to feel comfortable and relaxed.
Unwind with a hot bath, nourish your skin with your favorite scented body lotion, and light a few candles in your bedroom.
Treat bedtime like a special indulgence, with a set of satin pyjamas as part of the pampering. Feeling special will light you up on the inside and your confidence will be completely irresistible.
