Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed products and single out the most convincing ones. And though we’ve written about women’s pajamas extensively, with deep-dives into the best menswear-inspired pajamas, thermal underwear, and even Christmas pajamas, here we’re zeroing in on the best women’s pajamas on Amazon. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity.)

Best cotton pajama set

PajamaGram Pajamas for Women - Cotton Jersey Womens Pajamas

“These pajamas exceeded my expectations! Love them: well-made, good sizing, nice looking, lovely colors (I got blue and then lavender), and soft, thick cotton [that’s] warm and comfortable. Also important: [These pajamas] cover everything and the legs don’t ride up. I’m impressed. I’ve been looking for good basic pajamas in this kind of material. They’re perfect for me.”

Best viscose pajama set

Ekouaer Pajamas Women’s Long Sleeve Sleepwear

“These PJs are super comfortable: cozy and soft against the skin. I like them a lot because as a taller woman, I always have difficulty finding PJs that reach my wrist and ankles, but these fit beautifully. The fabric quality seems solid. They’ve been washed a few times and [are] still holding up very well! Love them!”

Best fleece pajama set

Angelina COZY Fleece Pajama Set

“Love, love, love, love, love this PJ set! I haven’t bought a PJ set in over ten years — I prefer to sleep in my oversized T-shirt and shorts. However, I moved into an old place that is as drafty as the North Pole. I finally bit the bullet and bought a fleece PJ set so I wouldn’t freeze to death. After much searching, I saw that this PJ set had the best reviews, so I ordered it. It. Did. Not. Disappoint. It is SO warm that I don’t even turn on my electric blanket anymore! And it feels so soft and wonderful against my skin. I wasn’t a huge fan of any of the available designs, so I ended up just getting the pink one with white hearts, but when it arrived, I was in love. It’s adorable. I’m going to order another one for sure.”

Best flannel pajama set

Alexander Del Rossa Womens Plaid Flannel Pajamas

“Remarkably well-made pajamas of heavyweight cotton flannel. I ordered them in extra-large to allow for possible shrinkage, specifically in length. However, I could easily have worn a large with plenty of room for comfort … These pajamas surpass other, more expensive sets I have in both fit and quality. The flannel doesn’t pill and there’s no bleeding of dark colors and no discernible shrinkage after several washings. I look forward to stocking up for future winter nights.”

Best patterned flannel pajama set

PajamaMania Women’s Sleepwear Flannel Long Sleeve Pajamas

“These pajamas are so pretty and comfortable. I sleep so soundly when I wear them on a cold night. VERY NICE. They’re not baggy like a potato sack, nor bulky, but they are roomy and comfortable and look nice on me. I recommend shaking, then washing them before you wear them, because of the shedding. Make sure you wipe out your washer before you put a load in after them because they shed a little. These have very nice quality flannel.”

Best satin pajama set

Womens Silk Satin Pajamas Set

“I have satin pajamas from Victoria’s Secret and other expensive brands. I bought these with very low expectations based on the price, but the quality exceeds that of my other PJs. True to size, fabric is soft, they look even better than in the picture, will be ordering more in different colors!”

Best satin pajamas with matching sleep mask

Alexander Del Rossa Women’s Solid Color Satin Pajamas

“Very comfortable pajamas, and they look nice for lounging around the house. I have some pajamas I bought online that I cannot wear around my family — the fabric is so cheap it is pretty much see-through. I could wear these around my whole family on Christmas because they look so nice! I also love that they came with the cute little eye mask to match. Great bargain for good satin pajamas.”

Best fleece lounge set

PajamaMania Women’s Sleepwear Fleece Long Sleeve Pajamas PJ Set

“I love these PJ’s. I could live in them all winter long, and will most likely order a couple more sets! So warm and cozy, I will wear them in front of my computer in the daytime, because I work from home!”

Best cotton lounge set

Sleepyheads Women’s Sleepwear Knit Longsleeve Top and Leggings Pajamas PJ Set

“I ordered this with hesitation and not much optimism. I don’t sleep in PJs, because I don’t like the way the pant legs hike up to my thighs. When I opened the package, I could tell right away that this was a good product. The material had a good, soft texture, and the color was exactly as expected. My second surprise was that they fit (I’m on the ‘larger’ size). These not only fit comfortably, they were great to sleep in. The leggings didn’t bind, and they stayed put as I slept. Nothing felt tight or twisted as I tossed and turned through the night. My skepticism turned into unexpected satisfaction. I felt compelled to write this review. I’d buy more for sure.”

Best capri pajama set

Amoy madrola Women Cotton Sleepwear

“Just what I like for summer PJs. I don’t wear shorts or tank tops, even for PJs, so these are perfect. I usually order large PJs because I don’t want to wear anything tight when I’m sleeping, and these fit exactly as I like. They wash nicely and have such cute prints. I’ll never be too old for cute prints on my PJs. I would recommend.”

Best pajama set with short-sleeve top

Latuza Women’s V-Neck Sleepwear Short Sleeves Top with Pants Pajama Set

“These pajamas are the most comfortable I have ever owned! They are perfect for the Florida climate throughout the year. They are so soft and definitely seem to breathe with your skin. I liked them so much that I bought several pairs in various colors.”

Best V-neck short-sleeve pajama set

Latuza Women’s V-Neck Sleepwear Short Sleeve Pajama Set

“Where have these bamboo babies been all my life? I absolutely LOVE them. I ordered four different pairs of pajamas, and they all arrived today. I have tried them all on, and I love every pair. This particular pair runs a tad large, but I’m super happy with the fit. They are roomy, but not loose. Did I mention that they’re COMFORTABLE and soft? I ordered these in gray and black. I’m wearing the gray ones now! The price and quality are SUPERB, if I do say so myself.”

Best scoop-neck short-sleeve pajama set

GYS Women’s Soft Scoop Neck Shorts Pajama Set

“These are just what they should be. The material is super soft but breathes. It is light but not see-through or too clingy. I have been sleeping ‘hot’ lately (thanks, middle age) and these are really helping. And the satin at the neck and legs makes them look a little nicer than a boring old T-shirt and shorts. I have the purple-gray and the soft blue, both really pretty colors that are not horrid looking on my pale skin.”

Best cotton pajama pants

CYZ Womens Casual Stretch Cotton Pajama Pants

“I am so surprised by the quality of these PJs, I will be buying more! I was expecting a thin cotton, but it is more of a thicker, stretchy fabric — more like sweatpants material. The fabric is soft and very comfortable. They have an elastic waist with a cord in the front to tighten the fit. Great product for the price.”

Best patterned cotton pajama pants

AMiERY Women’s Comfy Casual Pajama Pants

“I really love these pants. The material is thin and somewhat stretchy, and they are very comfortable. I’d be happy wearing these around the house year-round (here in California). I was looking for some comfortable lounge pants to wear at home and was delighted to find such cute ones! The high waist is fine, not my favorite, but I love the colors and the length is great on me. I’m 5’8” and about 145 pounds and I got a large, and they are a perfect fit. Now I can be lazy in style with these cute, comfy pants. I might just need some more pairs.”

Best flannel pajama pants

CYZ Women’s 100% Cotton Super Soft Flannel Plaid Pajama Pants

“I love how soft and well-constructed these PJs are. I wanted them large and comfy so on cold Alaska nights I could put them on and feel warm and cozy. They fit the bill, and the wide, flannel-covered waist is a plus. I have now ordered several pairs in different colors.”

Best lacy nightgown

Ekouaer Sleepwear Womens Chemise Nightgown

“I love this so much! It is very comfortable and soft. I did not realize that the under-bust lace part was see-through, but it doesn’t bother me. Have yet to wash it to see how it holds up, but it seems to be a well-made item. It is a nice length and not too tight. So it is modest enough to wear as a standard night gown but very pretty and elegant. Would love some more in other colors.”

Best short-sleeve cotton nightgown

Amoy-Baby Women’s Cotton Nightgown Casual Nights Sleepwear

“Great nightgown that you won’t be embarrassed to wear in front of guests. Great material and it doesn’t shrink much at all. Just the right length.”

Best long-sleeve cotton nightgown

ENJOYNIGHT Women’s Cotton Sleepwear Long Sleeves Nightgown

“Perfect sleep dress! The fabric is very soft and comfortable. The neck is sized just right to keep me warm (I do not like V-neck sleepwear because I get cold), and it is simple — no buttons or itchy lace, which I love! I bought a size up from what I would normally wear, for extra room and comfort.”

Best onesie pajamas

Sleepyheads Women’s Sleepwear Fleece Non Footed Color Onesie Pajamas

“I’m an aficionado, and this is my favorite onesie yet. The medium fits great; I’m 5 feet tall, 130 pounds, and it is comfortably roomy but not sloppy-baggy. The material is soft and warm but it doesn’t make me sweaty. Will definitely buy another.”

Best footie pajamas

SleepytimePjs Women’s Sleepwear Fleece Hooded Footed Onesie Pajamas

“I absolutely LOVE my onesie, it is comfortable and just the right size. It is comfortable for me to maneuver around in and it doesn’t drape over me. It is formed nicely to the curves of a woman, and the size is very comfortable, in my opinion. Some of the reviews advise that the pockets don’t have much depth, and that is true, but I like that. They don’t get hooked onto anything or get in the way of my movements. The feet parts are detachable. Washing the onesie is no trouble: I’ve washed mine once or twice now, and it hasn’t been altered in any way. It’s warm, cozy and super cute to run around the house in. I enjoy sleeping in mine and it leaves enough space so that no part of it tightens on me (or is too loose, for that matter) when I change positions. I highly recommend it and I’m getting another one in a different color. Enjoy yours!”
