Best women’s pyjamas: sleepwear sets for 2021

·8-min read

We’re longing for the days when working from home was a novelty and WiFi connectivity issues didn’t take up most of our day.

But while we can’t help but reminisce about the buzz of office life and tea breaks with our work wives and husbands, there is one saving grace getting us through the monotony of working from home - the outfits.

We will truly never tire of waking up each morning only to change into equally comfortable clothing. Proper underwear, suits and jeans have been relegated to where they belong - the back of the wardrobe.

Nailing the art of WFH dressing has taken some time, but for those still struggling, it’s worth noting that while some pyjama sets are reserved for catching Z’s, others have the elegance and sophistication to translate effortlessly into daywear. You know the type. The ones you're proud to pop to the shops in, or take out the bins, but are still comfortable enough to lounge in all day long.

In this uncertain time, weekends spent out and about dressed to the nines have been replaced with lazy Sunday morning attire from day to dawn, all day, everyday. With this in mind, it’s worth investing in a high-quality pyjama sets that will put a smile on your face - it’s all about the small things after all.

We have searched far and wide to bring you the cosiest and most covetable pyjama sets for all budgets and in a range of fabrics, from comfortable cotton to sumptuously soft silk.

Prepare to add all to basket.

The White Company Pyjamas

Seasons may come and go but pyjamas from The White Company are forever. They are, simply put, the cosiest pyjamas we’ve ever owned. There are cotton, jersey and silk fabrications that feel sumptuously soft against the skin.

The relaxed fits ensures that this is the kind of sleepwear you’ll want to spend an entire lazy day on the sofa in. There are designs to fit all season but even the long-sleeved iterations (which makes them ideal for the colder months) have breathable constructions, and so you won’t overheat when the warmer weather hits.

Myza Women’s Pyjamas
