26 Best Summer Pajamas For Women 2022—From Nightgowns To Boxer Shorts

We’ve all chuckled when someone cracks a joke about changing from our daytime pajamas into our nighttime pajamas. It’s funny because it’s true, and all too familiar. Pajamas are becoming far more than just a creature comfort to enjoy when crawling under the covers; they are a way of life.

But what to do when temperatures rise and the cozy set that got you through hibernation season now sends you tossing and turning by night and hot-flashing by day? Flannel will not do for May, and with summer creeping up on us, visions of airy linen sets and billowy poplin nightgowns now dance in our heads.

From starchy oversized nightshirts to slinky silk negligees, the perfect summer-weight sleepwear is out there waiting for you, begging to be worn 24 hours a day. So next time you’re lying awake, sweating in your winter sleepwear at 2 a.m., take a look at our favorite lightweight options and the best summer pajamas for women, below. (The sheep you’re counting won’t mind, we promise.)
